    The way it works is that the family scrapes together the cash needed to send a husband or a child to the UK where they will earn prodigious amounts of cash and send it back to support everyone. It's a simple investment. That explains why the poor dying migrants in the truck texted that they were sorry to have let their families down.

    Louis Theroux interviewed some Africans through the border fence at Ceuta. When he asked why they didn't turn round and go home they replied that it was unthinkable that they wouldn't reach the UK and that returning home would get them severely beaten or even killed.

    Thirty thousand pounds is an enormous amount for Vietnamese people.

    Apart from that is there not a more acceptable method of getting to the UK when willing to spend that amount?
    Have they come all the way in a trailer? It wasn't a container as people keep saying.

    How long will it take before they make a profit?


    Would anyone here give a thirty thousand pounds bribe to secure a job?
