    Oh noes.


    They can join what they like, as long as they're kept away from Europe.


    The current wave of migrants have shown they have nothing of value to offer.
    Because you choose not to see the benefits over the fears that they are all ISIS members -_-

    Ha! So you admit your post was deliberate spam and had no credibility.
    I admit that I didn't think anyone, especially some no-lifer with 10gems, would get so hung up and start crying over something like that.

    But my point still stands, only about 0.0001% of the immigrants are actively causing threats.

    Look back at the immigration the mid-20th century, Indian, Pakistani, Ugandan, Kenyan, Trinidad and Tobago - all of these immigrants made Britain the tolerant, multicultural place it is today.

    And this whole immigration to Europe is a massive propaganda victory against ISIS, these people are refuting ISIS and accepting democracy. Would you rather that most of the Muslim immigrants just joined the extremist group in response to being neglected by the west?

    They weren't causing mass rapes all over Europe.

    Neither are the immigrants now. The problem is exaggerated by the media and used by right-wing propaganda to press for more isolationism because it is easier to blame economic recession and poor quality of life on a bunch of people coming into your country. Now I'm not deny they happened, but the scale of them was bloated by the media.

    But I can't really take your opinion seriously. You would really rather people joined an active terrorist organisation which kills people, attacks the west, and spreads hate propaganda throughout the world, than come here? You are an utter idiot.

    When your argument is so bad that you resort to feeble personal insults it really is time you packed up.

    More nonsense. Britain is a generally tolerant place, so they were accepted.

    It has its limits, though, in terms of both rate of immigration and in terms of those who try to come. The current crop from the Middle East are an unprincipled, aggressive, superstitious bunch, judging by their behaviour at the borders and are not likely to assimilate well, especially in such numbers.

    You have no reason to try to hide away and cry from an insult when you were the one driving this off topic, going insane about me putting a decimal place two places further to the right than is accurate by accident. Grow up, I'm done here, you're just another victim of right-wing scaremongering, and you are playing directly into ISIL's hands.

    The Daily Mail is the UK's second most unreliable newspaper. They have been sued many times, they scaremonger for profits and are strictly pro-Tory and anti-EU.

    More rapes occur daily with native people than with the immigrants.

    Think before you write. Of course that is true: there are about 750 million people in the EU, and 1.3 million immigrants last year.

    In Sweden, though, it has been shown that immigrants and their children commit rape and sexual assault at a rate 5.5 times higher than non-immigrants.

    ’The UN has said that Europe is on the cusp of a largely self-induced humanitarian crisis’ (BBC News)

    Ten times the number of migrants travelling to Europe by boat this year. Hate to say I told you so (also see spoiler below for further reference)

    Thanks to European opinion leaders (read: NIMBY/ivory tower pseudo-liberal media/political elites), and their imbecilic Guardianista proponents, who have (in many cases wilfully) encouraged migrants to come, and Turkey/Greece just waving them on through, we are now looking at:

    • The disintegration of Schengen, accelerated decline of the EU, and evermore fractious/fractured relations between member states

    • Crime waves, an enhanced terror threat, and other atrocities e.g. mass predation of the vulnerable (Cologne etc)

    • Reactive vigilantism, persecution (directed at/within migrant groups) and the very real prospect of civil unrest and race/religious riots/war

    • The growing possibility of related international conflict e.g. anti-Turkish sentiments on the rise in Germany, Austria, and Greece

    Spoiler:

    We need to do four things.

    1. Overthrow and elect a new government. (Jail most of labour and the conservatives)
    2. Jail the bankers and corrupt company leaders.
    3. Leave the EU.
    4. Use our army to keep illegals out.

    This is a pathetically impractical set of proposals.

    I think that a unified set of countries has more leverage on the international and domestic stage than 28 countries fighting for their own separate interests, regardless of whether that takes away some random freedoms which I wouldn't exercise anyway.

    The EU is not the USSR. Pull yourself together.
