"The idea of a couple of hundred people trying desperately to get into the UK being any kind of a 'crisis' is laughable at best.
When you look at numbers of people taken in by different countries as a result of the Syrian conflict the numbers are startling.
3.5 million taken in by Turkey.
2.2 million taken in by Lebanon
700,000 taken in by Germany
The UK? Under the Tories?
That's less than Singapore.
Wierdly that wasn't on that racist cunt Farage's 'Breaking Point' poster. And those illiterate fuckwits in UKIP never bring it up either. Strange that.
Why should UK take any at all?? If other nations are happy to take them, then carry on I say. That said, I don't think the average citizen of any of your quoted countries are over the moon about their leader's humanitarian act on their behalf. More a case of prominent figures acting for political gain, and in the case of Germany, that has really backfired, hasn't it? So, enough of the bleeding heart stuff, get real, and accept that war fucks people up. Its their war, not ours. Maybe if they had done something about the ruling regime a damn sight earlier, none of this would have happened. But no, everyone out for what they can get, and as usual, its the little people that get caught out, but that doesn't mean we should bale out every unfortunate in existence, does it? Shit happens, get used to it. Just hope and pray that we, as a nation, have the savvy to ensure that such shit doesn't happen to us. "
