Rest of the questions ? OK, will try.
Would you be kind enough to define your use of the words 'refugees' and 'illegals'
A refugee is someone who is fleeing persecution from within one country, who is seeking asylum in another.
An illegal, is someone who is attempting to enter another country illegally, who is not a genuine refugee.
Do you have anything approaching even a ball-park figure for either category?
I could quote many sources, including the Government ones, neither of which (especially the latter) could be considered 100% accurate.
Who are these 'refugees' who are heading from EU countries
I think we probably covered that already, but I will emphasise that any genuine refugee, should have no need to march across Europe and camp in Calais, because they have already reached a safe refuge.
They certainly have no need to cause disruption to ferry (as per last night) and Eurotunnel services, unless they are hell-bent on getting to the UK, in the belief that they will receive preferential treatment.
who happened to have made it to Europe from their countries of origin after the most frightening and appalling voyages across the water
You mean across the water from Turkey? another safe country?
