    From page 24: "Promote independent, objective and quality reporting of media outlets, including internetbased information, including by sensitizing and educating media professionals on migration-related issues and terminology, investing in ethical reporting standards and advertising, and stopping allocation of public funding or material support to media outlets that systematically promote intolerance, xenophobia, racism and other forms of discrimination towards migrants, in full respect for the freedom of the media"
    Before we were talking about freedom of movement through the UN, now freedom of the press. Don't see anything wrong with your quotation there. Not sure what's wrong with promoting ethical reporting standards etc. Certainly doesn't put freedom of the press at risk. I don't know what the Swedish journalists are worried about, the UN has no teeth anyway. What are they gonna do?

      We are in the EU, yet a fellow EU country that is France allow these migrants passage through their country to assemble around the channel ports to try to gain illegal passage to the UK. Why are the French not doing more? Surely France is a place of safety. Start towing boats back to France from the channel.
      They do a lot actually. Costs a lot of money to manage the situation there which is why we paid for a massive fence to be set up. Also you got British border staff allowed to operate there under a bilateral agreement. Situation was worse a while back and they actually went to the trouble of dismantling a massive sprawling camp which was a huge operation. Like it or lump it we need them to co-operate in order to get what we want. They could just forget it all and leave it for us to sort out if they wanted.

        If you don´t think it´s a problem, that the UN want to interfere with what terminology should be used by the media in your country "with a view to dispelling misleading narratives that generate negative perceptions of migrants" then you have nothing to worry about in that regard.

        As for freedom of movement, then you are probably right, that nothing will happen short term, as the compact is not legally binding, as they say (making the pill easier to swallow?). It is, however, politically binding, and this means that the UN, in time, will be able to put political pressure on states to accept more migrants, because they have signed the compact. It is probably just the first step en route to giving all migrants the same rights as refugees, by giving the signing nations an "overarching obligation to respect, protect and fulfil the human rights of all migrants, regardless of their migration status".

        What´s not to like. It all sounds very nice, so probably nothing to worry about.

              Yes, a few have noticed it. According to agoodm, our tech guru: "It's pictures pulled from various threads mated up with the thread subject." Just unfortunate for worton that it landed on his avatar.

                Oh right. By design or a glitch, do you know?

                Just noticed Godfreys of Hornchurch alongside “Qpr hooligans”.

                  Oh an AI glitch I'm sure, just picking images randomly. Perhaps because Worton's has a clear face on it.
