'The number of migrants crossing the Channel into Britain passed the previous annual record in July this year. The UK had given France £54 million to police its beaches and I was able to adapt the words of the speech by Winston Churchill, imagining what the home secretary, Priti Patel, would daub on the White Cliffs of Dover.'
