Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Migrants Are Still Desperate to Cross the English Channel Despite Recent Tragedy” – below is their description.

“We already died. Nobody accepts us anywhere.”

At makeshift camps on France’s northern coast, migrants are still desperate to cross the English Channel, despite the recent drowning deaths of at least 27 people.

The deaths of dozens of desperate migrants attempting to cross the icy English channel to the U.K. was an opportunity for Britain and France to put aside their acrimony.

Instead, it’s descended into finger-pointing. The dispute marks another dispiriting low point in what has become an antagonistic post-Brexit relationship between neighbors with a history of strife going back centuries, but who are nevertheless trade partners and who need each other.
