I don't reckon many would take up the option.


Really?  I reckon loads would.

Did you put on your snide pants today, Jon?




But I am reading a thread about a desperate group of people that no one has a clue what to do with nor how to prevent a recurrence of this situation and thinking, "Fine, you may not believe they have any right to come to Europe or the UK but the very least you could is recognise that their day to day suffering is far in excess of anything you will ever face. (Unless, that is, your life has been so reduced that you will give all you have to be smuggled, with a high risk of death, across continents, leaving everything behind in the hope that one day you might qualify for a few free meals until you are sent back to start all over again.)"


Like I say: nobody has answers.  But I will judge those who lose their humanity.

Pakistan, Iran & Syria have cultures & beliefs that are fundamentally different to ours in the UK a


There are Christians in all of those countries fleeing persecution.


Nigel Farage is on record as saying we should let them in.


The difficulty, I guess, is that they might not have filled in the correct visa application.  What with being poor, desperate and at risk of imminent death.

Didn't Gordon Brown sell off most of our Gold at half the price we originally paid for it losing us Billions ?


These are short term, political decisions taken to suit their current policies. Sound financial logic never comes into it, whichever party is in power.


The FT (bunch of lefties) disagrees.

Sadly many are happy to fight and are criminals and have committed war crimes. In the past couple of days in Germany 80 Asylum Seekers fought amongst themselves with 8 injured including Police Officers! http://www.mdr.de/th...s-e86155ec.html. Another man was shot by Police after attacking somebody with a knife and threatening others! http://www.dw.com/en/guinea-asylum-seeker-reported-shot-by-police-at-bonn-refugee-center/a-18622363?maca=en-rss-en-all-1573-rdf. I know these people have obviously gone through tough times but do we really want such people walking the streets?


Yes you are right they are Humans- but so are IS jihadists, War Criminals, Murderers, Rapists and Mafia Criminals all of which are part of these illegal people trying to get in to the UK and Europe. A number have achieved this. And even if they do qualify a number have committed acts here in Europe but cant be sent back due to stupid human rights laws. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-26145293You may wish to have these illegals / Humans in Europe walking around, personally I dont. And most of these Refugees are young men. Why have they left their families back home? How do you know Human/Illegal A is a War Criminal or has links with IS when he has no papers?


You've convinced me.  That doesn't sound hysterical at all.
