There is a tremendous sense of irony throughout this whole story. How more perfect could it be that at the very moment one of the “refugee” supporters is championing their cause when the same people turn against him and the sympathetic journalist team and attempt to stone them?
Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.
Via the UK Daily Mail:
A British refugee campaigner has been pelted with rocks in the ‘Jungle’ migrant camp in Calais while talking live to Sky News as French authorities were dismantling the sprawling centre after a court ruling.
Calais volunteer Simon Dunning was urging David Cameron to ‘let in six and a half thousand people’ living in the camp when stones were seen flying by, forcing reporter Mark Stone to interrupt him.
‘We’ll move farther down the bank because they’re throwing rocks at us,’ he said before ducking to avoid the stones.
The incident took place as helmeted workers began pulling down makeshift structures where migrants sleep as they were relocated to purpose-built accommodation.
Two bulldozers and around 20 workers were employed in dismantling the camp as 55 police cars and two anti-riot vans stationed nearby.
