France and Its Hypocritical Immigration Policy (Nigel Jones, -UK, 06/24/18 5:08 am)

Even if Eugenio Battaglia (23 June) is being a little shaky historically in saying the last French victory was Wagram:  Borodino, Lutzen, Ligny, to name at least three later Napoleonic wins (even though Bonaparte was Italian, not French), and how about Solferino, fought to liberate Eugenio's Italy from the Austrians? And, as JE says, the Marne and Verdun. 

Still, Eugenio is bang on the money when it comes to perfidious and hypocritical French policy over migrants.

I have read horrific stories recently about the French treatment of migrant kids on their borders--cutting their shoe soles to make them walk back across the border to Italy, forcing a teenage mum to walk miles carrying her baby and so on. The French are behaving just as badly as the US authorities separating kids from their parents on the Mexican border. The big difference being that Trump openly admits what he is doing; while the arch hypocrite Macron--a self-preening liberal bag of wind if there ever was one--pretends to wring his hands over Italy 's "inhumanity" while practicing exactly the same policy. Not just hypocrisy, but nauseating hypocrisy.

Eugenio is wrong in saying that France will dominate Europe. Germany will try to and as usual will alienate everyone in the attempt, diplomacy not being a Teutonic strong suite.

Macron and Merkel represent the policies of yesterday. Fortunately, their time is almost up.  The peoples of Europe are finally rising up against the illiberal "liberal" elite--and not a day too soon.

JE comments:  The situation on the Franco-Italian border must be dire.  I'd like to learn more.  Specifically, what controls are in place to "turn back" the migrants?  Isn't the entire Schengen Area supposed to be control-free?
