Wyler if you're talking about UK churches, then the refugees have to be let in by the government before the churches can act in the way you're suggesting.

So they come to the West with a clear plan to address that small problem in the new lands they have self-selected.
At least hats will make a comeback, If you still have a head to put it on.

Funny you should mention 20 million, Mr Draper. Some talking head fron the UN was just on the news here, saying the EU should prepare to accept another 20 million people! These guys are living in some sort of parallel universe. Where does he think they will go?

That is the equivalent of taking every person, and I mean every person in Australia, and moving them to Europe. And then having them all go on welfare.

On another point, a lot of the video I see, these ' poor down trodden people', are all talking on their mobile phones. Where are they getting the SIM cards from? Who is paying the bills?

It's like those that were arriving on boats in Australia. They had sat phones and were already talking to lawyers while still at sea.

If it were just a question of the migrants currently in Europe being absorbed, and that were the end of the problem, I'd say yes - let's do it.

The trouble is that they'll just keep on coming. Especially once the recent arrivals start making plans to bring over their wider families and friends to join them. There's already a lot of evidence that the current wave of migrants, rather than simply being satisfied with arriving in a place of safety, are demanding to be allowed to settle in particular countries

I've said this before, and I'll repeat it - we cannot solve the worlds problems by importing them to Europe.

Just look at the men,..they are mostly of mid 20/30 years of age range, to me they could be an army(disguised) on the move, all with mobiles, all talking on them ..to whom, and why.. Why do many hide there faces when confronted with TV and press cameras, big trouble will afflict our country so we must not let any more into our COUNTRY.

we will all live to regret it, if our head politicos back down and let em in.

I've only skimmed the thread, at least the day's offerings and it seems to me that slowly it's dawning on even the most kind-hearted of us, that a new situation has developed and it goes beyond any recent experiences. Something needs to be done and it seems to me that there's a foul smell about. Yes, there are war refugees, but as has been pointed out the majority of the illegal would-be immigrants seem to be overwhelmingly male, between 20 and 30yrs old and from Africa and/or a 'stan' country.

It is social engineering, but with mal intent as it's goal.

In my social circle, those with the most worth and strangely with the least contact with anyone who has a swarthy complexion seem to be the most vehemently liberal in their views I see things on a daily basis that have long indicated to me that a change is happening and it's only now going somewhat parabolic in nature. As has been said, let every supporter of these 'future assets' host them indefinitely at their cost and in their own home with their family.

There was a story a few days ago about the UN handing out SIM cards to 'migrants' heading for the EU.

Of course, it may have been total claptrap, like most of the media reports these days. But it wouldn't surprise me.

Still, if true, it's amusing to see the UN doing its best to destroy the EU.

Just like the Catholics and Protestants got on so well in the 20th century in Ireland.

All this hype is not needed. The UK should welcome these people. There is an Island in the Irish Sea, the Isle of Man. Fresh air, good food et al.

Having said that, do I dare to mention Guernsey/Jersey? Lots of space on both locations.

Seeing that young boy on that beach broke my heart.

Am I willing to pay more taxes to get these people who are genuinely fleeing wars in failed states somewhere safe? Yes I am

Only approx 700 Syrians have been granted asylum in the last month here in Ireland. 3 were interviewed by media the other day (the male of the family in each case). Their professions? A doctor, a policeman and a university lecturer. They said they wanted safety for their families. Now they have that, they want to work and contribute to society. Welcome in I say

Apparently, the reason for the protests in Hungary is that those fleeing whatever do not want to be 'registered' in Hungary, as they could then be sent back there rather than being able to settle in Germany (or the UK).

Yeah. Under EU rules they must register for asylum in the first EU country that they make it to (Greece in most of these people's cases). Germany have said they will grant Asylum to any Syrian who makes it to Germany, which complicates things a bit

If the EU didn't exist, would this situation exist?
