    If a country decides to decline refugees, they should be forced to back out of the war that created them.

    This.

    The country would need a major shift in policies for the current level of immigration to work nevermind an influx of refugees on top of this. We should be building 300k houses per year if we're to go down that route.

    The press is pro-refugee. It tries to tell people that the majority of them are mothers and children. It's a lie.

    the truth is, the real refugees - the ones in UN camps are genuinely vulnerable people.

    Of the 2.1 million registered in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan and Lebanon there’s a pretty even split in gender: about 50.5% are women and 49.7% are men. For men and women, the bulk of refugees (a little under a quarter each) are between the age of 18 and 59.

    But take for example the current situation where a lot of refugees are Syrian. They have been made refugees predominantly by the Assad regime and Isis in a perfect display of what the cycle of tyranny and terrorism looks like in reality.

    If countries such as France, UK, US decided against taking refugees, what real difference is them backing out of bombing going to make on the situation in the long term.

    If you argue that military intervention by US and Uk in Iraq contributed to the conditions that have exacerbated the problems in Syria and Iraq, especially Isis then that is in some part true, but if we refuse refugees how can we pull out of that? It's already happened. Nobody can turn back time.

    I'm pro taking refugees in a controlled fashion. There needs to be a lot of work done on that front. I wonder why all of Europe didn't pull together better to be in Greece to handle the influx of people on the islands. I heard today that the Greeks have handled it so poorly by not checking documentation and not finger printing and this has obviously directly affected the 'types' of people that are now looking for refuge in Europe and there are too many bad eggs amongst the majority of desperate and frightened families.

    I'm also anti bombing the situation to make it go away. It's only going to make it worse in the long run. We can do so much more that is non military that will be much more effective than bombing, even if it is target bombing. I agree military intervention in this form is somewhat necessary but rather naively it appears to be all we are doing visibly.

    Right, but being British doesn't make you any less stupid. Besides, half of these people aren't even Syrian and even the ones that are - in the vast majority - blokes. Where are the women and children (ie the people who are actually vulnerable)?

    Something tells me you wouldn't be eager to apply this to Saudi and Iran - both far more responsible than we are.

    In the camps at Calais etc.. Mr Cameron believes there are, for example, approximately 3,000 unaccompanied children in camps. In times of war families easily get separated .

    The suggestion is that these children and other people with family members living in Britain should be allowed to apply for entry to Britain. Sounds reasonable . Much better than leaving them in squalor. After all refugees are often some of the most hardworking and enterprising of people, judging by our past experience in this country, and will be a great bonus for our economy.

    Where do I start?

    They come from all over the Middle East, North Africa, even some from Asia...

    We've seen nothing but crime being committed against Europe's native population by these people. These people could be ISIS or other Islamic terrorist groups.

    Most get here by crossing over from Turkey over to Greece, when Turkey itself should be safe for them. But they're not risking their lives to get here for safety, it's for the living standards that are superior vs Turkey.


    European people are deprived of their country because we're expected to take in all the worlds people..

    Why doesn't White life matter? Our culture, our people are being destroyed because of immigration. Perhaps you are racist for supporting this?


    Refugee is just a word that victimizes them when as I said they're coming from all over.


    Should Europe accept billions of people? I'm sure we can find that many who would like to live here.

    If you're opposing billions of migrants coming here, then you are opposed to immigration.


    Everywhere y has borders and laws except for the West because they use racism to silence those who oppose it.

    My reasoning is that it is not a refugee crisis, rather an economic migrant influx. The reason I say this is because the UN has concluded that 73% are men and only 15% children
