Cameron bares teeth over EU migration

LONDON - The first days in office are challenging for any new government and this will certainly be a busy week for UK Prime Minister David Cameron - who, amongst other things, says he has already rolled up his sleeves to change the UK's relationship with Europe.

The first "fight" with Brussels already loomed large on Monday in the British papers.

The front-page lead story in The Times reported that "Brussels forces Britain to accept Med migrants".

Migration is clearly a huge story, and a controversial one for the UK and Europe.

It has been for years, with an economic downturn and anti-immigrant political parties on the rise on the one hand, while at the same time television screens bring the horrors of a humanitarian crisis on our shores straight into our living rooms as we watch desperate people from the Middle East and Africa arriving, some dying, in their boatloads.

Migration is a problem only when neighbors allow soci -economic problems to escalate. If world soci-economic abilities grow at comparable levels there would not be any challenges of migration. However the is serious problems of one country growing at the expense of others. Europe grew at the expense of 3rd world countries.

Look at the pictures of immigrants and refugees their pappers/websites flash. Only black Africans. The truth is they are being pestered by immigrants and refugees from Eastern Europe Middle East and Somalia. That can not be shown to the wide world as Africa. Definitely not. Typical western world ant-black colour.
