    Now look at what we've got! We have a government that wants to make the UK an orphanage! The liberal contamination of the Conservative Party is obvious. You couldn't put a cigarette paper between the two parties anymore!

    I fully agree. These children should be too young to take care of themselves or travel alone, but I'm afraid those background checks aren't really possible. How would you verify their country of origin?
    we would have to rely on other countries really, which is the origin of my concern

    Thought I should best turn up to defend my statement, though I'm pleased to see so much cross-party support on such a pressing matter.

    No, there is no way to verify if children are children, it will act as an incentive for migrants to make the journey, and it goes agaisnt the aim of seeing migrants from Syria that have entered Britain being removed.
    Beyond a certain point, distinguishing between ages is irrelevant. What we actually want to do is try to solve this problem rather than shrug and say 'nothing to do with us'.

    Very small steps from the Home Sec. We need to be taking more children.
    I certainly agree that more than 3,000 children need to be helped and rescued. This is why I am proposing a more focused and coordinated European response to this is issue rather than simply assuming that Britain has a duty to resolve the entire problem. It would simply not be a sustainable approach - yet a trans-European collaboration might well be.

    Well, in fairness, I have been the most socially liberal of the Conservative PP for the last term or so. Yet this statement was originally suggested, written and debates by members of the Conservatives prior to presenting it to the government as a whole.

    The bottom right quadrant is where all the cool kids are anyway.

    Feel free to adopt a few. Lead by example and all that…
    Yes I would. But that's not the answer if finance is the issue then raise the tax on the wealthy they have to be paying they fair share in taxes

    The only issue is that ‘their fair share’ according to you is ‘a much higher percentage than the poor’ and we think it's ‘the same percentage as everyone else’.

    No, his fair share is "force them out of the country and be confused why you can't afford things" percetage

    Specifically your back yard I reckon.

    Or Liverpool.

    One or the other.
    Considering I don't have a back yard, Liverpool it is

    I'd really rather not accept anyone but this is certainly an improvement over what's going on IRL and 17000 various people + 3000 unaccompanied children over 5 years isn't that much, I guess. If we manage to resolve the conflicts in their home countries before they're integrated into our society (if ever, right? :rolleyes:) and along with other countries help them rebuild, I'll be definitely working to ensure that we send them back.
    This.

    If people really want no more refugees then they can get out of our way and give us a majority. Until that happens political compramise was needed and 20,000 made of of >15% children is far better than the 23000 in RL.

    I would like to commend the right honourable gentleman's statement - it is one I wholly agree with.
