    Common sense at last, Council who said they would take immigrants & give them housing have changed their mind & will now give the houses to British flood victims instead- http://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/636...mbria-refugees

    Should Brits be entitled to social housing before immigrants/refugees? https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/107787

    Finally a step in the right direction. We should not be housing any migrants.

    I don't think there is any 'common sense' in that. What happens to these immigrants (?)

    I agree. We shouldn't be providing resources to our own in times of need. We should be giving them instead to random Albanians blokes pretending to be Syrian and also actual Syrian blokes who left their wives and children behind in a warzone

    They can stay wherever they are. Why should our own citizens be left homeless when there are houses for the taking?

    “To date, all the refugees that have come to the UK have been successfully allocated to other parts of the country.

    The joys of living in a wealthy country. We can house both our own populace, whilst making other arrangements for those we have agreed to take.

    It's not nice just to target one specific group. It's not good to make weak assumptions about immigrants if you don't know the facts. The Syrians have left the country for a reason or has that not crossed your mind?

    I'm sorry but why should the immigrants be left homeless? They're humans also and the fact that all the above posts mention "our citizens". Funny thing is these immigrants will eventually become citizens lol

    Why should the flood victims be left homeless? And why should it matter to us if people on the other side of the world have a home or not?

    Sadly it's not that easy, cheap or quick to do. We leave in one of the most grossly overpopulated countries in the world, which I think is crux of many people's (myself included) problem with immigration or refugees or asylum seekers or whatever the current label is. Yes there is space in the countryside but a) the decline of the countryside in Britain is a tragedy in itself and b) migrants tend not to come here to go and live in the Yorkshire dales or the Peak District they want to live in the big city areas where they have their own communities i.e. Manchester, Birmingham, London etc.

    Finally! The councils have started making sensible decisions! Too many brits have lost their jobs and livelihoods to immigrants, at least now they wont lose the basic human right of shelter to them as well!

    Sure they have but how does that justify them trying to force themselves into Britain?

    If they had left their country purely out of fear for their safety, then surely they would have stopped in one of the countless safe countries before they reach Britian? There is clearly also economic reasons behind this.

    We have homeless in this country too, if we reach a point where our homeless population is 0% and we have homes going spare then fair point. But at the moment you are justifying leaving British people homeless to justify homing people from the other side of the world.

    Unfortuantley there is and will continue to be conflicts like this all over the world, you cannot just pick up and move the civilian population to a select group of countries every time this happens. We would have evacuated the civilian population of like 10+ countries in the last 10 years alone.

    The flood victims need to toughen up. I think it's highly irresponsible and outright disgusting to give the safe houses that were designated for immigrants to flood "victims". The flood victims have family, friends and the resources to find somewhere else to live temporarily like a B2B or a hotel. This move is too rash.

    Immigrants who aren't even in this country should have priority over those who have lost there homes in the UK through no fault of their own

    No wonder people are getting more and more angry over the migrant issue
