    I feel sorry for the driver though.

    But imagine how tough life must be for you to climb underneath a coach for God knows how long from France to England, think of how scary it would be to be that close to the ground on the motor way when a coach is moving that fast.

    Why didn't he just stay in France or any of the other safe countries he would have undoubtedly passed through?

    Don't particularly care about the driver. He will probably get over it.

    Hopefully the guy didn't die too painfully.

    Well we don't know that he was coming here to make a living

    People who are asking why he didn't stop in any other European country - just look at our benefits system

    I find the sarcasm in wishing the driver well ironic. To express your lack of sympathy for the immigrants unfortunate death, you express sympathy for the driver who is expressing sympathy for the guy who he died. Illogical if you ask me.

    Disgusted at the lack of sympathy in this thread for the immigrant. He is a human being, first and foremost. R.I.P.

    For me if you are an illegal immigrant and you want safety you declare asylum the first safe place you can. The financial implications would be the least of my worries if I were a genuine asylum seeker

    Yes. Go and look at it. You'll find that the vast majority of those who are on it, are not only British, but shock horror, they're not living in mansions either. Those who migrate to Britain have no interest in living a life on benefits and they're here to work. The amount of migrants on the benefit system is such a tiny percentage of the total.

    Stop getting your facts from the Daily Mail.

    Yeah, totally **** him because he was foreign, right? Totally nothing to do with doing something stupid after leaving the dangerous country and travelling through multiple safe countries, in his own continent let alone ours.

    Illegal immigrants can't claim benefits, genius.
