Images of people scrambling over barbed wire fences in Calais or crossing the Mediterranean in fishing boats

have dominated the media over the last few months. And a debate has even emerged about the very words

used to describe people.

 

The word migrant is defined in Oxford English Dictionary as "one who moves, either temporarily or permanently,

from one place, area, or country of residence to another".

 

Well there you have it then. Are they migrating? answer, yes they are, so they are migrants.

Migrations have happened since animal life started on the planet.

 

The argument is mostly about economics, then security, then humanitarian.


We could do with some help from you.

So does it mean you are a migrant if you move from Luton to West Ham then since this is a "new place" give me strength now I can be called a migrant simply because I moved? wow... (this was just an example BTW)

 

 

Please everyone you are really not a migrant just being exact in what was quoted in the final sentence post #1, don't you just love the good old Oxford?


If I have been of any help, please click on my star and leave a note to let me know, thank you.

In this context, the connotation is as important as the denotation.

The idea that all politicians lie is music to the ears of the most egregious liars.
