Some advice here

Meloni to unveil plan to expand Italian influence in Africa
Scheme to help African economies aimed at curbing illegal migration from continent

Maybe invading Libya again won’t quite work. Tho’, you know…..

  1. I of course believe in patrol boats sinking everything on sight. Especially the ‘charities’ that pick up these illegals and dump them on Italian soil.

  2. Especially the ‘charities’ that pick up these illegals and dump them on Italian soil.

    I don’t understand why Georgie Melons doesn’t just send the bill for housing and feeding all those illegals to the charities trafficking them. And when they refuse to pay, send the bailiffs in (whatever the wop equivalent is) for their assets.

  3. Prior to her election, Meloni vowed to end this. Since her election it has increased. It’s almost as though she’s in the pocket of the globalists the same as every other one of these cunts.

  4. I see it’s the old “give more money to the Africans so they don’t come to you” delusion.

    Good luck trying to create European style standards of living in countries with an average IQ hovering around 70.

    But the Africanisation of Europe is well underway. Net Zero will bring us very close to the economic success of Botswana.

  5. “what Meloni has described as a “non-predatory” approach to helping African countries in areas including education, health, exports and infrastructure.”

    No, why not make it predatory? Sort of like fighting fire with fire….

  6. Speaking of cunts, Rishi Sunak:

    As well as restricting freedom, the bans are likely to to hit hard taxpayers’ wallet too, with the smoking ban alone expected to cost the government £9 billion a year.

    The government “can’t” stop dinghy nonces being escorted onto British benefits by the RNLI and Royal Navy, but it can find £9bn a year to snatch what few creature comforts proles can still afford out of their ‘hideously white’ hands.

    The thought of Italy providing economic guidance to fellow third world nations is hilarious.

    Unintentionally hilarious, but hilarious nonetheless.

    Talking of those charity ships, I was surprised to learn this case was even brought let alone trundling along:

    The Minister of Infrastructure and Transport blocked the disembarkation of around 150 migrants from the NGO ship in Lampedusa in 2019.

    The Open Arms trial in which the Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Matteo Salvini is accused of kidnapping and refusal to perform an act of office resumed in Palermo on Friday.

    In August 2019, as interior minister, Salvini blocked the landing of 147 migrants from the Spanish NGO Open Arms’s ship in Lampedusa.

    “Is it decent for a minister of a democratic republic to force 160 vulnerable people, including women and children, to wait 19 days before they can receive the necessary treatment at the nearest port of disembarkation?

    19 days? If they were that worried about the migrants they could have taken them back to Africa or sailed to Spain, their home country.

    Botswana is, or was until recently I haven’t kept track, quite a well run place. It is surrounded by basket cases.

    Private Bloke on a platform in international waters, a few ‘suicide drones’ launched off it ( resurrected Maplins probably do them mail order these days). With help from some spotting helpfully broadcast over the wireless by the Italian navy, should solve the problem within a week.

  10. Making Africa richer will, at least in the short to medium term, only serve to increase immigration pressure. You can’t get Africa up to near Western GDP per capita levels overnight. But by increasing Africa’s global connectivity (reducing transport and communication costs) and increasing the wealth of inhabitants, you do increase the number of people who can afford to migrate.

    Forty years ago, people making under a dollar day couldn’t afford to make the very expensive journey to the West – there was migration from Africa but it a lot of it was from relatively wealthy areas like North Africa. Now a lot of people in Africa make something in the low thousands of dollars per year, that’s enough for families to scrape the money together to send a son out on the journey, and enough below European salaries for the potential remittances from his income there – even in a minimum wage job – to make it worthwhile.

    I did read some research suggesting that Africa’s much improved education level was also a contributor – many countries are at least approaching universal male literacy, lots of kids are completing high school and many countries even have a Western style problem of too many uni graduates, with associated graduate unemployment or underemployment. These youth tend to earn more once they get to Europe (someone who can’t read or write at all would be very limited in what they could do over here) so they have greater “pull” incentives. I also suspect the greater availability of mobile phones and social media is making people realise just how relatively poor they are, which acts as a “push”.

    What you’ve said there does chime with Melloni’s “non-predatory approach”.
    Because there’s little doubt the open doors immigration policy is highly predatory. It does tend to preferentially strip developing countries of the higher achievers they need to develop. Sure, immigration may fill much needed employment vacancies in say the UK. But that’s at the expense of the countries they’ve come from. The UK’s benefiting from the cost of their education. It is actually a highly regressive policy.

    Yeah. I’d also point out our stereotypes or experiences of immigrants have much more to do with which pool our own countries’ immigration policies are fishing in, than what the population distribution over there is like as a whole. In the USA, the migrant/ethnic group with one of the highest (in fact, highest the last time I looked) chance of having a PhD is Algerian Americans. Even above Chinese. French Algerians? Not so much. But the USA hasn’t been importing millions of low-qualified skint rural Algerians for decades to do menial labour – they’ve been very selective, so the PhD is more likely the ticket that got them stateside in the first place. Similarly, all those Brit ethno-nationalist types working themselves into a fever about how West Africans all have an IQ of 70 despite British West African teens getting very good results at secondary school, often above their white peers. We’re asset-stripping Nigeria of their doctors, dentists and nurses (plus lawyers, accountants, teachers, IT professionals…) so what do you expect? Whereas British Afro-Caribbean teens languish towards the bottom of the educational league tables. Both groups are of West African descent so it’s not some ethnically-inherent genetic thing.* And British Bangladeshis have very poor educational attainment despite their British Indian peers, including Bengalis from the west side of the border, overperforming. But those education-obsessed “Asian parent” stereotypes apply much more to programmers and doctors than they do to curry house owners, so again, no surprises there.

    In terms of just how regressive our policies are, it’s worth bearing in mind the prospect of getting a visa to work in the West is one reason families in developing countries are prepared to invest so much in their kids’ education in the first place. But we ought to be feeling worse about it in places where e.g. medical education is heavily subsidised by the state because they’re desperately trying to nurture their own next generation of doctors, while we’re desperately trying to steal them. In some parts of the world, the system is geared up specifically for exports – huge nursing colleges where would-be emigrants from India or the Philippines go to train for example. I believe mostly privately owned and managed, and funded by students’ families stumping up the fees. That’s less outright predatory, particularly if we have a shortage of people prepared to go into nursing and other hands-on caring roles here. Though it’s possible the shortfall is just the market’s way of indicating the pay is too low to be competitive with less crappy (literally) jobs, and the migration policy is just the government’s way of trying to beat the market. Becomes even less explicable when you consider relatively high-wage jobs like doctors being imported despite the very high level of demand for UK medical school places. And whatever role it is we’re sucking these people in to do, they are smart, skilled and motivated people. They might not have done the same roles if they’d stayed in their homelands, and the reduced remittances would make them poorer in the short term, but you do have to wonder what they’d be able to contribute and build there if they’d stayed.

    * The stats don’t lie – the next generation of British Nigerian kids are, at least educationally, all right. Which is curious as most people I know who’ve had to deal with their parents on a professional level report that among the good’uns (and I’ve worked with some talented and successful Nigerian migrant professionals, some much better than me) was a worrying or even dangerous proportion who just blag through their job and appear to know next to nothing about their supposed professional specialty. Could only assume all their qualifications had been done to a far lower standard than the UK, or simply bought or faked. Hired out of desperation, I guess. I even have a mate whose job involved sorting out what supposed undergrad and postgrad degrees were real vs fake, the two regions of concern he’d build up an encyclopaedic knowledge of were Nigeria and Bangladesh. A typical hirer without access to such specialist skills could be quite easily fooled by a fake certificate from a genuine university, or an authentic certificate from what’s effectively a “fake” university unworthy of the name. Despite this, their kids on average do very well at school, and presumably this will continue unless we drop our visa requirements lower. The most convincing way I see of squaring this circle is that even these “fake professionals” are, at heart, aspiring to be professional, and have the same aspirations for their kids. Who in classic Nigeran style they’ll beat or otherwise discipline if they don’t do their homework or get good grades. A sort of inter-generational “fake it till you make it”.

    Of course I should have tempered my comment with the caveat that the other group of high achievers amongst immigrants are the criminals. And emigration>immigration selects for criminals. They’re less socialised in the countries they’re leaving yet find it easier to embed themselves in the ex-pat communities of the countries they go to. They tend to be more adaptable. As has in the past been repeatedly demonstrated. US – the Mafia, Colombians, Mexicans etc UK – Maltese, Cypriots, Jamaicans, Romanians, Turkish, Albanians. Here in Spain – Moroccans, various S. Americans, Russians, Dutch, Brits, Irish, Romanians again…
    Nigerians – anywhere you care to look.

    One of the things about diaspora communities is they’re very well placed for the import-export business. Can be legit, can be … very much not. Partly why there’s so much Lebanese and Armenian involvement in the diamond trade, as well as the drugs trade. Something similar applies to a lot of entries on your list.
