    They have our sympathy but you’re drawing a false dichotomy and (hence) the vast majority of them don’t just stop, upon reaching the first non-squalid/safe place, or even upon reaching Europe, instead many continue to migrate Northward. Some have even turned up in Murmansk! :lolwut:
    That's not relevant to what I said. I'm talking about people who says things such as "well why don't the refugees just stay in Turkey or Lebanon"

    Oh you can count on getting some fulsome Englishness inside you

    Secondarily

    You and I both. It's an alien city. Yet you bang on about how wonderful London life is :dontknow:

    Yup, because I know you’re not really an apologist for Islam, you just sound like one sometimes, when your humanity is a touch overzealous

    A little heads up, if it’s within the next few weeks, if you please, as I’m not in a good place RN and due to move again before long (Amen)

    It’s not mere sexism/misogyny that motivates the ‘oppression’ of women, dear. There are more laudable elements to related Eastern culture e.g. the preservation of modesty, sanctity of sexuality, and integrity of the family unit

    Expect Princess Jasmine will make a very big, and lasting ‘impression’ on me :innocent:

    What have you been smoking!? :mad:

    Green and pleasant

    Pun intended in the typo? (coke capital of Europe and general city of sin) :erm:

    Hey! We’re not all monkies :woo:

    I couldn't believe this http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/toront...rkey-1.3463905

    When hundreds of thousands of refugees are suffering and dieing no thanks to Western interventions you have people rescuing DOGS all the way in Turkey instead. Where are people's priorities!? Especially those who constantly boast of superior western secular liberalism humanism. Is this humanism?
    How has this thread run to 17 pages exactly? 'Rescuing' refugees from Turkey and bringing them to Canada is called people trafficking, and is a type of organised crime. Rescuing ownerless dogs on the other hand is perfectly legal.

    They aren't refugees. They're economic migrants who come from a backward way of life and expect us to bend over backwards to accomodate them
    Yes, you're right about that.

    ..although granted, I've never given a girl with your particular 'credentials' a full English before, so the first course could be short lived

    It's not mean. I cautioned you about discussing your 'assets' with other males but you ignored me. I value my life, and our connection, so now we both have to pay the price of your indiscretion/their greed and err on the side of caution

    Ok, we'll go over what you have told them in detail at the appropriate juncture. Honestly, you have to be so careful when it comes to men who are used to getting their way and relatively corrupt legislative jurisdictions

    I think London is for everyone
    Then you're misguided honey, the inequality vs. cost of living in London is really bad for a significant portion of the population :sad:

    Don't worry I already know :sexface:

    Blood is thicker than water hun. The only men I would ever be frightened of when it comes to assets are men I don't know much about or who I know would try to kill me because greed for money/selfishness.

    I agree London is a very expensive city but I was talking more culture/multiculralism. London caters for all cultures and that what I love about it

    Firstly, this is a charity that specialises in rescuing dogs. This charity isn't the British Red Cross. A charity does what it intends to do, and this charity isn't a charity that helps people in crisis like in Syria. Secondly, this charity isn't rescuing any dogs at all, it only specialises in rescuing Golden Retrievers. So if they come across say a German shepherd that needs help, they don't help that dog. So this is an incredibly niche charity. Here is their website for you to view:

    http://www.goldenrescue.ca/


    This is a niche charity that seems rather odd to me if I am honest. The only individuals the charity assists are specifically golden retrievers. That said, this has nothing to do with Western, humanitarian or liberal values and to act like it does is absurd. But, I do think that the existence of such niche charities is something that is worth discussing and so I will discuss this.

    There is a western humanitarian practice called "Effective Altruism" and the philosopher Peter Singer has written a great book on the topic. Basically it talks about how best to donate money to charity. The fact is that a lot of people don't really understand how they can most effectively spend their money in charitable ways. For example, many people will see adverts on the TV saying how if you donate so much every month, you can help to train a guide dog to help the blind. It sounds like a great charity, does it not? But Peter Singer raises an interesting point:



    But the fact is, even if we did make more informed decisions and found out the most productive use of our charitable money, it most likely would not be best spent helping Syrian refugees. Money is a scarce resource and if we are to use that money to save the most lives, our money would probably be best spent donating to a charity that gives mosquito nets to poor people. Ultimately, this is a very difficult issue, and there is no simple answer.
    Very informative!
