    I mean, clearly there are a lot of refugees from Syria and Iraq wanting to come to a safer place like Europe and especially the UK. We have to provide at least some of them with a safe place to live in the UK- during the Second World War, a lot of other countries took in British refugees and cared for them.

    But there is also the problem of security this time- we have to realise that a lot of these refugees believe in an ideology that hates British values and wants to attack us. Look at Germany for example, all the rapes that happened and all the terror plots
    .
    And there is also the issue of money- it is so expensive to give them homes and food and everything and it is a bit of a slap in the face for a hard working British person who has to pay for everything by himself. Should we give them the right to work and save the money we have to spend on food and homes for them?

    Should we even take in refugees at all? Are they really in danger? Surely there are safe areas in Syria where they can move to. Maybe we should instead try and finish off the war and actually remove the source of the problem?

    What are your opinions, guys?

    Put them on a boat and send them all back to where they came from. Build a big fence to stop them returning and continue with our happy lives in Britain. Let's forget about what's happening and make the West a nice little paradise for us.

    Bury yourself in the ground. Preferably quite deep so that the chances of you emerging again are 0. Thanks.

    My solution is great. It stops the refugees coming and allows Britain to grow without needing to support lots of uneducated poorly skilled migrants who need benefits to live as they're poor when entering

    Honestly? Treat them as refugees.

    Regardless of their 'culture' we should take as many as we can realistically handle and not marginalise them, and then once the situation in the Middle East becomes stable (whether that's tomorrow or in 100 years time) send them back. I have no problem with people coming here because we do need to offer them help, whether we like to admit it or not. However if they're going to stay here, regardless of how they got here, then I'd like them to get to the back of the queue and emigrate legitimately like everyone else.

    If they agree to come into any country in Europe as a refugee then they should agree to be sent back straight to where they came from once it's safe.

    Well, if you ask me you're entire argument is childish. "Let's build a wall." This isn't legoland and you can't just build a wall everytime someone annoys you. This isn't a playground it's real lives and people you're talking about so have a bit of decency because I know that you probably think that refugees are coming here for money but that entire idea is preposterous why would you risk the lives of your children just to get a few more bucks clearly you're trying to prevent them getting blown into smithereens. Again bury yourself in the ground so that the chances of you emerging are 0 thanks.

    Completely agree with what you have said. We do need to take some of them in but some politicians are trying to ignore the fact that a lot of them hate the West and hate our values.

    We need to make sure that the ones we take in are actually people who have not been radicalised and the best way to do this is by taking in Christian and Jewish refugees first of all- they pose the least risk. Then take in some Muslims who are from good backgrounds. Then send the radicals and those who we know have links to terrorism straight back to where they came from.

    Clearly, there is also the money issue. Refugees are, frankly, a waste of taxpayers' money and a great way to soften the burden on us is by allowing them to work and not rely on handouts. Make sure that there are jobs available.

    But I need to make one thing clear- once the refugees are in, they are never going back. Their homes were probably destroyed in the war and it will take at least 50 years to rebuild Syria and make it liveable again. Once the refugees have settled in and have lives here, they will never want to go back so we need to prepare for the fact that they will settle here permanently.

    Well we should make it clear that if they want to apply to come here as a refugee they are simultaniously agreeing to be sent back (by force if required) once it is safe to go back. I've got no problem accepting refugees as long as they are treated and behave like refugees and are sent back once Syria is safe.

    Someone is going to have to rebuild Syria at some point, and it's not going to be me.
