Good post, making up figures is a speciality of sr90. As you say Hungary is telling them to get the **** out.

As for Britain, this country's apathy is absolutely disgusting.
I agree. What makes it worse is when people try and claim that ''there's no room, we cannot afford it'', like they have extensive knowledge of the countries budget and foreign aid policies (Osbourne today in fact said we can afford to bring these refugees into the UK, but i'm sure sr90 knows better than him).

Do you own your own home? If so have you let the council know you are willing to take one in?
So it's a waste of a pissing post then and shouldn't be taken seriously.
What ****ing nonsense is this? There are a million things the state should do that I would be unable/unwilling to do personally.

The country made its views on empathy perfectly clear on May 7th.
37% of the 66% who voted arguably did. Not saying the government isn't legitimate but it's hardly representative of public opinion. The polls I've seen suggest people think Cameron's handled the situation badly and more people should be taken in.

The debate hasn't moved beyond "let them in" or "keep them out" though, which is unfortunate.

Thought bagsy was a person for a second there.

No the government is legit, we got what we deserve. We live in strange time when so many u30s lack so much apathy and humanity. What's going to happen to when mid life crisis hits.

Yeah I was thinking about this the other day really. We're regressing as humans in a way, considering how far the last few generations came (through WWII and 50's America etc.), we're lucky that it was us and not them or the same **** would be happening still right now. Louis. Can't rep for some reason.

Meanwhile in Guardian land;

''Hungary needs to be tackled head-on, before it encourages more chauvinism elsewhere in Europe''

Of course, Hungary are the real problem here. Pathetic

Don't you all find it weird how nobody gave a **** until they saw one emotive picture of a child, and now everybody suddenly cares so much?

The power of a picture. And the ignorance of a population.

Really not trying to sound elitist here, but the mass of uneducated idiots who lap up this type of thing don't really deserve the right to vote. Tbh I was pleasantly surprised to see a friend of mine stand up for the actions of the Hungarians.

Actually, culture is hugely important. Importing millions of young men from the middle east is not going to be fun.

Islam is already a plague over our roofs


I am probs gonna be flamed for this, but a lot of those young men are going to be uncivilized and used to the barbarism that becomes normalized with war.

Also a case of people who've always cared actually being given a platform to air their views, but yeah I know what you mean. Doubt it'll be on the agenda for long...remember that time we all fixed Africa by sharing that Kony video?

Short story for you.

Last general election, on the day we voted, I tried to buy a bag of potatoes at Morrisons. Got told that one item meant I shouldn't be in the '10 items of less' lane.

Genuinely can't believe the people we let vote. That's the problem - I'd say well over 99% don't have enough information and knowledge to vote 'properly'. The EU referendum is a nightmare too - I almost have an economics PhD and I know for a fact I'm inadequate to vote in a way where I'm sure enough that one way is better than the other.

I guess the argument is that, if you believe we should help migrants, then the picture is a good thing - even if people didn't get to their views in what one might argue is the 'best' way to get there. Plus, now, because of one photo, people are getting involved in the whole situation and politics as a whole.
