    Oh, great news....NOT..! This will merely encourage more crossings as they will now expect to be rescued if they have boat trouble. And, if their boat is not in trouble, as soon as the RN patrol ship hoves into sight they will scuttle their tub, be picked out of the water and brought to blighty. Mission accomplished..!
