'Ludicrous claims about Calais are desperate and illogical'

Migrants surround lorries trying to pass through Calais, with some climbing on the roof of a lorry cab
Responding to the claims by the French Economy Minister, Emmanuel Macron, that ‘migrants will no longer be in Calais’ if we Vote Leave, Matthew Elliott Chief Executive of Vote Leave, said: “These ludicrous claims are simply not backed up evidence, logic or French self-interest.
"Such a conveniently timed intervention smacks of desperation from the UK Government which has failed to renegotiate our relationship with the EU and is now failing to make a positive case for remaining in the EU. "There’s no more chance of shifting the Calais camps to the UK than there is of a refugee camp springing up outside of Terminal 5 at Heathrow. "If we Vote Leave we can take back control of our borders and spend our money on our priorities.”
