Britain MUST take in more refugees Watch

    Taking in refugees is a terrible long-term solution (issues with integration, not combating the problem at the source/diverting resources away from combating the problem at the source, encouraging long and perilous journeys for refugees, etc), just like paying hostage ransoms is a bad idea when thought about critically. If it wasn't so (geo)politically unpalatable it would be best to carve out a safe haven for refugees in Iraq (which is really what the UN should be doing). Of course Russia wouldn't appreciate this, nor the general population who think we should have hundreds of thousands of soldiers but not use them in any mildly-significant way. So instead the EU has to take the social and economic burden of housing a large portion of these people, screwing up our main trading partners (what could go wrong?).

    Oh god, see he proves your point wrong, he isn't uneducated as hes already got a masters and undergraduate degree, yet he voted leave? hmm strange.
    He definitely proved to be a xenophobe and nationalist though

    i think you should do some in depth reading of Voltaire and learn to accept other people's views without judging them so harshly, its hypocritical at best. =)
    No, I refuse to accept xenophobic and nationalist views and I will always judge them harshly as they are disgusting, dangerous, and a hallmark of the uneducated.

    As you can see not one of my motives had anything at all to do with immigration or 'xenophobia', i have proved your point wrong two times today.
    All of your -very weak- points have to do with nationalism though, and your contributions to this thread strongly suggest you're a xenophobe. Your poor reasoning skills and many spelling mistakes also suggest that you are uneducated.

    What you have proven twice today is that you are an intellectual lightweight, son.

    It doesn't need to

    (Original post by MrsSheldonCooper) Wouldn't some people love to live in Saudi because of how religious it is? I don't get the logic of some migrants. Barely any have gone to other Muslim countries. see less

    She claimed that barely any refugees have gone to other Muslim counties, not that barely any had gone to Qatar, Saudi and Yemen

    they named 3 you should address the countries they named in the first sentence rather then pretending they didn't say it (as you have done in your quote)

    But as you know the facts how many have these 3 muslim countries taken?

    I don't propose that they all come to the UK nor have they all actually come to the UK. A minority of refugees were accepted by the UK compared to its size (relative to the huge numbers accepted by Germany, Sweden, Hungary, etc).
    But what about all the refugees in Calais trying to cross to the UK?
    They are all being refused sanctuary. This is actually taking their human rights.

    I don't know about the particulars of the Calais case. All I expressed was a principle: that each civilised country has, by international law, an obligation to accept refugees fleeing from war.

    That's the thing! Most of the people in Calais are running from a war.

    Again, in which case, all EU countries, all civilised, stable countries must offer asylum (or whatever that is called) to those who're refugees. In proportion to their population.

    OK. Some stay in those countries, but the vast majority are still heading towards the UK.

    The UK is not obliged to take more refugees from Calais in particular but it must take far, far more refugees than it does now (which is not much 'cos right now, Sweden, a country of 9 million people, takes 4 times as many as the UK)

    That's my point. I think the last government party was too strict on them, especially that stupid man, Nigel Farrage.

    i totally agree with bringing more refugees in. that was aimed at the people who refuse all refugees no matter what. in such a huge humanitarian issue; it would be wrong of us not to stand up and help in whatever way we can.
