Total cost of 20,000 Syrian 'refugees' to UK taxpayer: £468 million. watch

    • Thread Starter

    'Oh, but, oh, but...Google hasn't paid its taxes (£140 million)! Such self-interest is appalling, none of us would dare avoid paying a £2k tax bill if we had an opportunity not to - we're pure and righteous!'


    Yes, taking in 20,000 Syrian 'refugees' will cost 3x as much as Google owes the Treasury.

    Source? Leaked Home Office Reports, NOT the Daily Mail (before progressive miscreants hide behind their idea that the Daily Mail is a source, not a medium).

    I mean, we already pay £400k per year to house Jihadi John's family. 'Oh, we're in so much debt'...meanwhile, we spend this:

    £12bn per year on foreign aid.
    £43 billion on HS2.
    £15 billion on HS3.
    £4.5 billion in Iraq.
    £22 billion for Northern Rock (blatant corporatism, not capitalism).
    £45 billion for RBS (blatant corporatism, not capitalism).
    £13 billion for Lloyds (blatant corporatism, not capitalism).
    £700 million for the Olympics.
    Upwards of £300 billion on PFI.

    Yeah, Google is the problem. Right.
