14-17? Unlike Swedish newspapers, British newspapers seem to have a little integrity left and react to the obvious madness.
With the title "PC GONE MAD? No age tests for foreign migrants but ‘hugely intrusive’ tests for Brits," the British newspaper Daily Express brings the outrageous story of the so-called unaccompanied refugee children who now come to England from the Calais "Jungle Camp" in France, claiming to be 14-17 year olds.
Disabled people in Britain are put through "inhumane" "degrading" tests just to get vital funds to live on - while basic checks on even the ages of foreign migrants are ruled out as "intrusive".
This week, bus loads of ‘child’ migrants arrived from the Calais Jungle after being branded "unaccompanied" minors.
However, their ages have been brought into question when migrants who looked like grown men arrived in Croydon, Surrey, when Brits were expecting to see small children.

MP David Davies suggested their ages should be checked using radiographs on their teeth - but the British Dental Association said it was "vigorously opposed" to the method of assessment, labelling such a move inappropriate.
However, such tests are carried out on migrants in France and the US.
And the Home Office ruled out this basic test of legitimacy as "too intrusive".
However, comparisons have been drawn with the testing of sick and disabled British tax-payers who are made to take part in strict and ‘intrusive’ assessments for benefits they have already been awarded.
The tests are often far from home and can even be in centres without disability access.
