THE UNITED KINGDOM TO WITHDRAW HER CONTRIBUTION TO SAVE DROWNING MIGRANTS
The United Kingdom is to cut off the annual financial contribution to the EU for the rescue services provided to migrants. The government has decided o impose this policy to allow migrants to die by drowning to deter others from trying to migrate to Europe.
The UK will no longer support the EU in the rescue operations in the Midetirenean sea to save economic migrants and refugees who are trying to make it to Europe. By applying this, the UK reckons more migrants will die, more money will be saved and no other refugees will try the risky and suicidal journey.
Despite some of these migrants are running away from death penalties, dictatorship, bad governance and persecutions. The British government has a morale responsibility to rescue these migrants but has decided to withdraw her services to see fleeing people drown.
These policies are being traced to the BNPs former leader Nick Griffins who once said, I quote "We should shoot them dead on those boats". How can one expects such an irrational and racist way of approaching an international issue of people's movements.
Without taking account of the UK being the root cause of some of those unwanted migrations either by looting, colonization, imperialism, democracy and not forgetting their continuous support of local dictatorship in those countries... Once again this demonstrates the double standard stance "the west" always has.
.The government wants the the fleeing migrants from Libya, Afghanistan, Syria, and rest of Africa to drown to end migration to EU.

More than 120 days since Boko Haram gunmen abducted over 100 girls in Nigeria
Parents of the abducted Chibok schoolgirls have said that even though it is 98 days since their daughters were abducted from their school by Boko Haram gunmen, they still hoped they would not have to spend 100 days in the captivity of the insurgents, before being rescued. Speaking from Chibok, one of the parents of the abducted girls, Mr Lucky Chibok said he would continue to burn his candle of hope, even though the rescue efforts had at all times tried to quench the flame of optimism that he would ever be reunited with his daughter again.
“As long as I am alive, I will not give up my prayers and my hope that my daughter and her colleagues would one day walk back to Chibok, because that is not beyond the doings of the Almighty God,” said Lucky. He further said that when the news first came to him that his daughter and others had been kidnapped by the Boko Haram sect, it was like a dream.
“If anyone tells us that we would have to wait for over three months, I for one would not believe that the girls could stay alive with these dangerous men without any yielding. But here we are, still waiting and waiting.
“It is our fervent hope that they are rescued at once and for all, without necessarily clocking 100 days of being held in the captivity of the Boko Haram,” he said.
According to fresh revelations the Nigerian army sometimes flee whenever they clash with BoKo Haram beside allegations of collaboration and corruption from the state. As we all know how rampant corruption, extosion and bribery are means of making a living. Is the Nigerian army taking money from a terrorist group and putting the whole of Africa in the hands of deranged, mentally disturbed fellows. I think and believe its about time the Niger goverment comes up with an everlasting solution to this mess whatever that means.
Few questions can be posed, how comes it took this long for the most developed and advanced country in the continent to overcome and destroy group of amateur soldiers like Boko Haram.
