Katie Hopkins is just back from Calais and she believes when it comes to stopping illegal migrants getting into the UK, we're like King Canute failing to hold back the tide.

Katie's first question: what will it take for us to act on Calais?

"It will not be long, I would like to predict on this Bank Holiday Monday, until a trucker is hauled from the cab of his truck and beaten to a pulp," said the LBC presenter. "I wonder then will we act?

"There are so many illegal migrants already crossing through at Calais, are we really in control of this situation at all?

"Do we have any sense of the numbers coming through?"

Nicolas Sarkozy has said that Calais jungle refugees should be managed in Britain, rather than in France.

Katie's respone? "I feel a little bit like maybe we're kind of King Canute.

"We're looking at Sarkozy, saying: 'You idiot! No, you keep those people, you will have the Jungle on your side of the Channel.'

"We are standing there like King Canute, imagining we're holding back the tide of illegal migrants but actually they are coming through at a rate of knots."
