According to The Mail on Sunday, public school-educated activists have been accused of frustrating the French border police in their attempts to stop illegal Channel crossings.

Why should they be involved in “what doesn’t concern them?”

I believe they’ve seen the injustice in the system and they want to make things right in their own little way. Apart from that, in spite of their wealth, their sense of humanity and compassion haven’t deserted them.

One of them is Rory Biggs O’May who is the son of wealthy lawyers. He is said to have attended a school paying fees of up to 23,379 pounds sterling in a year. His family home in North London is said to be more than 2 million pounds. They own a holiday home worth 2 million pounds.

Another personality is Isabella Anderson. She is the niece of BBC television presenter, Chris Peckam. She is the daughter of Jenny Peckam, a fashion designer who made dresses for stars including the Princess of Wales. She attended a boarding school with fees up to 40,000 pounds. Their family home is worth more than 4 million pounds.

Yet another is Joshua Evans-Jesra. He produced an album titled “End The Hostile Environment” which includes tracks like “When I Crossed The Border.”

He is supporting a “no borders” policy. He is also supporting activists trying to block the deportation of migrants from the UK.

One other personality is Oxford-educated socialist Serena Watson–Follett. Her family home is worth about 900,000 pounds. She has also been involved with charities.

I tabled their wealthy backgrounds because they could have been in their cosy offices or palatial homes relaxing or giving orders. But they chose to align themselves with a cause.

I know some of their folks would have raised some concerns over their choice. I guess they would have been hard nuts to crack.

So, their families and associates would have had to let them be.

Only a few people in the governance of the various countries of the world are aware of the problems faced by migrants. Most of them are at the point of no return.

If not, how on earth will a person go through the deserts of North Africa and if he survives, embark on the hazardous trip on the Mediterranean Sea in rickety boats? They will pass through people-smugglers.

Generally, they are fleeing terrible situations like wars, desertification, floods, or even political offences. Until the authorities of their host nations receive them, they will be troubled.

I tend to think the world could do better in the case of migrants!
