I first visited Calais in the summer of 2014, thanks to a tip-off from a London ceilidh band. The visit changed my view of migration, borders and humanity forever. Since that summer, I have been involved in Daily Mail-baiting, several “flotillas of solidarity” and co-founded UKHIP, the United Kingdom Humanitarian Intervention Party. I have also played cricket against a team of Afghan migrants, which hurt. They’re good.
