Good luck with that one

As Britain begins the process of deporting migrants from their base in Cyprus, the (mainly) Palestinians confirm they will fight any attempt to return them to Lebanon. We will not apply for asylum in Cyrus, they say – we are not just any old migrants, we are M&S migrants, and will only settle for a new life in Britain, Greece or Germany. An understandable reaction of course, and it makes me wonder how Merkel thinks she has a hope in hell of repatriating those already in Germany deemed non-essential to requirements? Visions of people being rounded up and stuffed into cattle trucks.
