We reported here recently about the horrific conditions and resulting violence in a migrant camp at the French port of Calais dubbed “The Jungle.” In fact conditions there are so dangerous, the French government now wants to basically bulldoze it, destroying hundreds of tents and wooden shelters and trying to find other places for the refugees.
Naturally, this is the sort of thing that attracts the attention of sensitive Hollywood types, especially those who haven’t had a film role in about three years.
British thespian Jude Law decided he needed to travel to the Jungle himself to see the plight of the refugees – particularly of the children. He traveled with a team of videographers who are actually making a film of the camp that viewers will be able to watch in 3D virtual reality, allowing viewers to ‘better understand’ the dire conditions experienced at the camp – no doubt to promote the latest 3D virtual reality technology.
In fact Mr. Law put on an impromptu performance for what the Daily Mail called a “small crowd” and read a “Jewish letter to the Nazis” – without a trace of irony, apparently.
However, as the Daily Mail reports, his visit was not enthusiastically welcomed. Apparently Law’s security staff were reportedly mugged after cameras stopped and had their phones stolen by rock-throwing migrants.
Moments after the celebrities had boarded the production team coach back to Britain, their security team was ambushed, according to the Sunday People.
The attackers reportedly hurled stones at the men before stealing their mobile phones.
A source told the newspaper: ‘We were shocked to see some of the migrants acting like football hooligans. The security team had stones thrown at them and two had phones smashed and stolen.’
Really? They were shocked? You mean they hadn’t seen this video?

Sadly, the whole of Europe is learning too little too late what happens when you throw open your borders to all and sundry, and promise to pay for their subsistence. It’s a lesson our own leaders seem a little slow in picking up as well.
