    I didn't know we should be filtering the refugees according to things like that.
    I think that fortunately, it's only a minority that would disagree.

    Hindus and Sikhs generally seem to integrate better and contribute more to society than another particular group (in my opinion).

    However, I still would prefer not taking any refugees.

    Whether we take refugees or not isnt dependent on religion but on whether they are refugees. As it is at the moment, the main areas of conflict are in muslim countries. O expect the UK to meet its international obligations just like everyone else who has signed up to it. If they dont want to then they should resign from the treaty. Nobody forced the Uk to sign.

    Why did you have to mention about Muslims? It was unnecessary.

    I'm German. So my posts only concerns what happened in Germany As you know, many Muslim migrant men raped, molested and sexually abused many women in my country since New Year's Day.

    You only have to see what the German police commissioner said on national TV to understand the true extent of the migrant crisis. Mind you, the higher command in Germany gave him a piece of their mind following the telecast of this interview. Watch it to believe it.



    Political correctness was what got many, many good, wonderful members on this forum banned for merely questioning the policy decisions linked to immigration/migration such as the one made by my Chancellor to allow all these migrants into my country
    • without checking if they are holding genuine passports
    • without checking if they have links to terrorist groups
    • without checking if they have criminal records in their home countries
    • without checking if they have HIV/AIDS
    Someone recently asked me why should people wanting to enter into another country, be checked for HIV/AIDS? This is because the government owes a duty to its citizens to protect them from people who may want to infect others with their communicable diseases. This is an extension of a 'social contract theory'. Read up on it if you have time. Educate yourself.

    You may have read or heard, many of these migrants have turned my country upside down. I hope all of you reading my post, bears this in mind. A country's sovereignty, security and safety of its citizens is so so important. With Merkel's blunder, we have become a carbon copy of UK & the rest of EU and their set of problems.

    Merkel has been in hiding for many months now. She's pushing 62 years of age. She won't throw in the towel just yet. If UK decides to remain in the EU, I am certain they will make EU into a united states of Europe and she would be the major contender for the post of PM of the USE. Tony Blair has quietened down way too much to be able to stake a claim for that coveted position.

    Merkel studied physics and then chemistry. She has no knowledge and understanding about politics, law, finance and sociology. She tells the German public one thing and tells the EU another thing and then tells the world another thing. Sometime back she said that refugees must now return back to their countries of origin after the wars back home have ended.

    With Turkey's inclusion into the EU imminent, there will be 77 million Turks who will get to make their debut appearance in any of the EU member states. They will not go to France because France has zero tolerance towards Muslims. They will continue to come to Germany or go to the UK where the borders are invincible and where the border agents have zero powers to turn people away.

    Fun times ahead.

    But in the UK sense, I'm not so sure. Labour was in charge for 13 years. They allowed millions of sri lankans, pakistanis, bangladeshis, Indians and others to come to the UK

    Yes, you can disagree with your government but the problem is the ministers haven't got a clue about the issue at hand in the first place. You can disagree with the government but each time you do that it would be like taking two steps forward and then two steps back. It's not that your government doesn't want to listen to you. The truth is they're clueless. Look at them Ministers. They don't know what hardship is, they've never worked in real jobs like stacking shelves or being a rubbish collector etc. So they just make policy decisions and you the citizens will simply have to suck it up and live with it.

    There was a forum member who recently spoke about Muslims in bad light and I think it's appropriate I quote her here again to make my point.

    Look up the Rotherham case and look up some documentary about how ISIS supporters here are living off benefits and yet they want Islam to be the UK's main religion. So yes,my belief is people like that should be kicked out.
    I just read up about Rotherham and wow this is shocking. How did the police not do anything when so many thousand girls were being treated worse than animals? But I still find it offensive that you would insinuate that there are only Muslim sex gangs thriving in UK.The sexual predators are of varying nationalities, ethnicity and religion. It is not solely confined to Muslims alone. Yes the bad people in Rotherham sexual grooming of thousands of girls have been named and shamed and are now in jail but you can't just limit sexual grooming gangs to Muslims alone. That's an unfair observation.

    Stop blaming Muslims for everything that goes wrong. There will be good and bad people in every religion, race and nationality.The British government is very welcoming of people from across the world even if they're not genuine economic migrants or asylum seekers. David Cameron feels that it is ok for these people to come to UK and live off benefits from Day 1. He is fine with them not wanting to seek work, living in huge council houses, having multiple children, milking the NHS etc while the obedient British taxpayer foots the bill.So it's not for either of you to say that David Cameron is wrong. Please respect the Prime Minister and stop blaming the Muslims.

    We cant afford mass immigration of any kind to the UK

    To European countries if they can afford absorbing the numbers impact? Yes. We have seen how well Sikhs and Hindus assimilate into western culture.

    In my opinion, a pointless thread.
    What we are facing in my opinion is massive immigration.
    There have been many wars in recent years. We did not have millions of refugees heading to Europe by far more populous countries, due to those conflicts

    I peronally would not mind since Hindus and Shiks are civilised people. But Muslims no. They will go in Europe under the pretext of refugee and start settling here by creating paralel societies an getoes. Most of them would live of welfare and so on.
