Simon Schama's migration muddle>> The Spectator

I'd earlier watched Simon Schama sliming Rod Liddle on Question Time, it's good to see his response, which is pretty much summed up in the headline.
Note the reference to the charity Human Relief Foundation which found that 97% of the "refugees" at the camps in Calais are in fact economic migrants not refugees at all.
Trying to pin down the figures a bit more I've come across figures from the European Union's Eurostat that reveals: 80% of the "migrants" are not from Syria. And it's the escape from the Syrian war that's the prime rationale for Mad Merkel's open door policy.
If you've got the wrong data you get wrong answers.
