Monday BBC News reports UK PM David Cameron is expected to warn that a UK exit from the European Union could bring Calais 'Jungle' to Britain.
The story has more than a smell of fear to it and shows Cameron is back on the ropes.
The EU deal is supposedly only at the draft stage and PM Cameron is still spending most of his time trotting around Europe increasing his carbon footprint to a huge boot stomp but it appears the deal is done.
Maybe the PM is about to accept that the deal he announced last week is as good as it gets for the UK.
So how does Cameron figure a Brexit could lead to the Jungle Calais becoming the Jungle UK?
The PM will suggest that if a "Brexit" happens, the arrangement that allows British border guards to check passports in France could be scrapped.
It's not so long ago Cameron and his supporters were in the House of Commons claiming the UK has a special relationship with France and is a long-time ally. That was when some MPs wanted to extend bombing in Iraq to include Syria.
The next EU summit on February 18 could be make or break time for the UK EU deal; Cameron will be hoping for agreement from member state leaders so that he can press ahead with a UK EU referendum probably in June 2016.
But whenever the UK EU referendum is held expect scaremongering from both the Brexit and the Bremain camps.
Voters will have a tough job sorting the spin from facts and mind manipulation on a grand scale will be in play.
The prime minister is reportedly planning to argue that if voters back leaving the European Union, France could use this as an excuse to scrap the current accord.
If that is really the case the next time you hear Cameron calling for support to the country's great ally France you know what to think.
The Vote Leave campaign's conclusion that "Clearly, No 10 is in a blind panic over the failing renegotiation" is spot on.
David Cameron and his ministers know that some voters keen to wave goodbye to the European Union simply want an end to what they see as mass migration to the UK.
We are in for interesting times and a period of excessive claims and counter claims.
