    There will be a short term economic cost to the migrants for Germany but however - as we've seen with the UK - they will reap economic gain.
    The short term economic cost is estimated at up to €141 billion in the next five years: http://www.reuters.com/article/us-eu...-idUSKCN0Y50DY
    It's going to be long before we see a "gain".

    So it's Britain's responsibility to be the US's dog and help ruin countries around the world but when it comes to taking responsibility for their crimes, oh no! We have too many "poor" people to take in a few thousand more.
    I do agree that Britain has a responsibility to help the refugees which it is currently doing by inviting 20,000 refugees until 2020.
    Secondly, there are issues within this country which should be a priority for the government to fix such as building enough houses and tackling rent prices which is frankly out of order in some parts of the country someone on a very good income could find that actually all their money will go towards paying for towards the rent.

    But Germany has been enriched?
