France and Britain have diametrically opposite short-term interests with regards to the Third World migrants at Calais. Neither wants them but Britain depends on French cooperation to keep them from getting to the island.

Daily Express:

Security insiders said heartbeat monitors, which can identify stowaways in seconds, had not been used at the port for up to six months.

The revelation has sparked accusations that French officials are deliberately passing the buck and have no intention of apprehending immigrants heading for the UK.

The explosive claim prompted calls for an immediate investigation into border security at Calais.
