Default 'Children' from the Calais migrant camp on their way to UK

Britain is to take in children from the so-called 'Jungle' refugee camp just over the English Channel in Calais, France. Fair enough, we said. Eight, nine or ten year olds who have been orphaned (perhaps their parents sank in the migrant boats from Libya to Italy), certainly deserve to be cared for here, and some of them may have their relatives here. However, as we say here - these so-called children are taking the piss

Do these look like children to you?

I think that a few of those children used Grecian Formula. What happened to the many who were caught lying about their age?

The site didn't have any pictures, or I just completely missed them.

But you couldn't think they may fib about their age, so you? (sarcasm included)

We have only just started taking them in this week. They are to be reunited with family who have come here before them. They emphatically say they are under 18 but just looking at them you can see they are not. There were calls this week to examine their teeth to estimate their age

They don't have papers. These are the people who have cross over land to get to the coast of France and they have been staying in the makeshift camp, called The Jungle. It is being disbanded so their best bet was to get over here by lying about their age. I know war and hardship can make a youth look old, but just look at their faces!!!

There were photos on the link for the article. Perhaps your computer wasn't able to show them for some reason?
