    "Thousands of Iraqi refugees who arrived in Finland last year have decided to cancel their asylum applications and to return home voluntarily, citing family issues and disappointment with life in the frosty Nordic country. Officials said about 4,100 asylum seekers had so far cancelled their applications and that number was likely to reach 5,000 in the coming months."

    A poor, violent, politically unstable country that has been devastated by a decade of war?

    Or a wealthy country that is so cold your nuts freeze together if you go outside during winter without 7 pairs of thermal underwear on?

    On balance, I fully understand their motivation to return home.

    these people are detestable, They think Europeans will provide them with a big house, car and job and when they realise thats not the case they go back - some danger they are in eh?

    This proves that the best way of handling these unwanted and unwelcome refugees is to give them **** all and soon enough they will go back

    Just 5,000?

    That's not such a big deal. There are numerous leaders in the past who have done much worse. Now makes me think the whole war in iraq was entirely unjustified.

    I hate what is happening to Europe. I hate what it happening to my European, indigenous native homeland.

    I strongly doubt a few thousand asylum seekers in the UK will change our "native society"

    Its not a just a few thousand trying to get into the UK though is it. As far as I am concerned Muslims asylum seekers should be barred from seeking asylum in europe

    Considering that most asylum seekers are groups of single males I'd rather not have them here. Women and children, okay I can understand but single males could easily get a job in another country they don't need to come over here and leech off of our benefits system. We should only let them in if they have qualifications that can get them a job. When you think about what's happening in Sweden, Germany, Denmark and other EU countries with attacks on women, between different groups etc. , I'd rather it not come over here.

    Denmark has a completely different politics regarding refugees than Germany and Sweden.
