    don't you think that a lot of them use the civil war and exaggerate it just so that they can live here?

    Do you think if you lived in a war torn country you'd do everything in your power to escape it so your children can grow up in safety? 99% of the people wouldn't last 5 minutes in some of these countries.

    this should get you started. If you really want to know how bad somewhere is, research it. Ignorance is bliss though I guess.

    I expect humans to reach into their humanity and help each other. That means we should take in as many people as realistically possible who are crying out for the world to help them. Not just the UK but any country that is able to help should help.

    How do you expect her to reply on behalf of those who may and may not exaggerate? How do you expect her to decide on whether the majority ("a lot of them") use the civil war for that purpose? Suppose her family did for that reason, how would she still answer to whether the majority do this for only this reason of living in the UK?

    Oh please, just let people live for crying out loud, you are just boring us with these statements.

    See, I love the internet, there are no borders here, nor there is any land that nations can own. There are no foreigners here, we are all equals. I wish our real life was like this.

    Deal with it we'll have these people in our country for a while and you have the choice of treating them well or like crap...I guess. Flexibility is a skill.

    Equality does not exist. Simple as. By stating it does, you change fk all. By acting you can do something not by saying it does and hoping for a change.

    realistically possible doesn't mean anything there's is not enough space in this country and we also have to preserve our country and our culture. Charity starts at home. How many of these people are actually at all grateful and actually make an effort to integrate? Start at 44:20
