The Mail versus The Guardian

On Tuesday The Mail published this article entitled 'Dying to get into Britain: Four desperate migrants are killed in Calais in just one week as they target lorries bound for UK.'

Yesterday The Guardian published this article entitled 'Why are the nerves of empathy severed when it comes to immigration?'

Please read both articles, I have.

Now why doesn't Jonathan Jones in his Guardian piece ask these questions: If these poor people are struggling for a better life away from Africa or Eastern Europe, why are they so desperate to get to the UK rather than settling in Germany or France, where they already are? What is it about the UK that makes them so desperate to get here?
