Britain MUST take in more refugees Watch

    I think we should continue to take refugees in. If they fled a war, we can't just tell them to go home because then we are just as bad as their home country. Accept them. A Greek Island can recieve over 40,000 refugees a week. Most of these head for the UK. We could spoil the reputation we have held for years as a peaceful, caring nation.

    You really think that's the British reputation?

    What a truly great country. Messes up whole regions by being an American dog and then refuses to even partially deal with the massive human suffering they created in the first place.

    What has happened in Germany, France and Sweden is a prime example of why we should not take refugees en masse. A lot of the refugees are males in their 20s. There are very few families. Because of the type of life they have lived they find it difficult to fit into our culture.

    How do you decide whether they are genuine refugees or just economic migrants. How do you know they are from the country they say they are from. How do you know they are not terrorists.

    The truth is that most people in the UK do not want these refugees/migrants. The only people you see campaigning for them are celebrities and upper class twits. They have polled in areas where there are high percentages of established Muslim populations and the Muslims who are already established in this country don't want them. They are effectively a different breed. It would be like putting wolves in with lambs.

    We MUST help and take in more refugees.
    There is no must about it. Do you understand the meaning of must?

    Refugees should be distributed evenly across all civilised, stable countries. Those who can show that they're refugees ofc and not economic migrants (i.e. those whose homes have been destroyed, are prosecuted by the state and live in warn torn countries like Syria).

    Nothing controversial I don't think.

    How do we distribute them equally if they all come to the UK?

    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).

    Libya? Where's the invasion?
    Syria - we stayed well out of it and look what happened.
    Iraq - really? You're saying it was a peaceful country beforehand? Not saying things got better, but it's not like it was in good shape.
    Palestine - ?? I don't even. who was the last country to carry out an invasion there?
    Libya is now in a worse state
    Iraq is now in a worse state
    Palestine is no longer a state...

    If I was desperate any safe country Romania is a perfectly safe country.
    That's complete nonsense and you know it. So you're telling me if you were homeless and you were offered a run down council estate and a mansion, you would go for the council estate. BULL.

    Can you please explain to why the migrants have chosen to take a much longer route to Europe instead of going to other countries in the Middle East who share the same culture and religion as them? Personally, I haven't heard Saudi, Qatar or Dubai open the floodgates up.

    The UK has invaded Palestine? :eek4:
    no but they gave away territory that wasn't theirs. Palestine was forced to take in hundreds of thousands of refugees to only have their country taken over all together...

    Those other muslim countries, haven't taken a single refugee. They said it would be too big a risk to let them in! Arab emirates and Saudi arabia for example.

    Britain does not have to do anything. The stance the Government is taking is the right one - if you simply allow refugees to come in without limits, you encourage them to make the dangerous journeys and crossings even more, putting them in further danger. Instead, we should be discouraging them even making the journeys in the first place and work with our allies to ensure that should refugees have to leave their home country, they register relatively close to the country from which they have come. This will make their return after war, famine etc. has ended easier.
