But on the other hand you 'll have permanent supply of builders, electricians, painters, gardeners, mechanics and people to look after the aged
Many of them will also be available to pick fruit and potatoes ...............
You will probably find at least two doctors and one vet amongst them as well as a number of nurses
Unlikely to be any financiers, lawyers, media influencers or other low life
Not if they're illegal immigrants.

Twaddle.

A PC has a large say in planning permissions and developments. Our local PCs (3 surrounding villages) have successfully stomped on plans to triple the size of a nearby prison after lobbying councillors, along with plans for 2000 houses in nearby fields. A boring role but, they are vital and play their part (if run properly).

As for Linton becoming a refugee camp. It's in the middle of nowhere, won't impact on any major cities so, I can see that it was an easy choice for those running the farcical attempt to look after war refugees.

Wow - so sorry for residents and surrounding areas. There is no history of such an initiative improving the situation or reducing crime rates in the area.
Maybe I won’t get to finish my book of toll bridge tickets after all…….

You may yet, the price for the toll is planned to double. It may be you have to hand over two tickets each crossing.

Sounds like a business opportunity for some unscrupulous types offering cheap crossings in a rubber dinghy..........

I wonder how much the Immigration and Border Force will need to spend on the accommodation to bring it up to the standard expected by the free-lancing scrotes?

"Won't impact on any major cities"........oh, well that's all right then! It will impact on Wetherby, York and Harrogate and it most certainly will impact on the poor residents of Linton whose property values have just nose dived! They'll no doubt lay on a bus service specially, so that they can immerse themselves in British culture.

It's things like this that make for grim reading...

https://www.migrationwatchuk.org/new...f68lWsHf0wzm1g

What is not sinking in at the moment is that a majority of these single males have made their way from conflict that we have, in one form or another, had an input. There are those in the groups who really don't like the Brits, and even less so, the British military. Linton still has a very high military or ex-military population. Those with radical intent are being placed at the heart of their intended target demographic.

There is a Parish Council meeting on Friday 21st April. Local MP Kevin Holinrake cannot attend but can do Saturday. I just hope the PC change the date so we can ask him some direct questions and we get to see the whites of his eyes.

Of course the first question is ... "Is this a done deal that will go ahead?" So far there is too much "linton could be...", "It has been suggested that a new centre could be...", "The plan is thought to include Linton..."

Ooooh.......that's just another aspect SWB......hadn't thought about that. Back on the subject of care and maintenance, surely as the most recently "abandoned" piece of the defence estate, it could also be reactivated quicker and more cheaply??? The idea of placing all our eggs in very few baskets obviously isn't an issue any more?

Seeing as those who will be accommodated are those who have entered the UK through illegal methods, Balance of probabilities is it is far more likely they will not be.

It is not the 1 former ally that concerns us, it is the 499 "unknowns".

Then why did they pay people smugglers to enter the UK illegally? Because the vast majority are not refugees.

VM - could you perhaps explain how you'd go about 'entering the UK legally' as a refugee? It's really not very easy unless you're in exactly the set of circumstances that ticks the boxes. You either get resettled as part of a programme (pretty niche, and if recent Afghanistan and Ukraine experience is anything to go by, probably about a year or two too late) or you already have some form of permission to travel to the UK (passport + visa for tourism or work).

Willing to bet that covers perhaps 1% of refugees wanting to come to the UK, many of whom have pretty valid reasons such as family here.

Method of entry to the UK is a pretty poor discriminator of whether someone is deserving of help, I'd suggest, especially when you look at how arbitrary resettlement programs are.

I wonder how many will abscond whilst waiting for their flight to Rwanda? Can't see them being complicit somehow.

There's a whole bunch of 'em in my local Premier Inn and all three adjacent hotels in my local market town.

Great places to park as the 'guests' mostly couldn't get their cars on the Zodiac boat to Kent.

1956 refugees!

I was a school boy in 1956 and well remember the arrival of " refugees"to ex RAF Hednesford from Hungary.Some supposedly released by the russians from Hungarian jails.These"refugees" went on a thieving and plundering spree quite openly of the surrounding towns.Local police couldnt cope!Eventually they were all shipped of to America.I feel sorry for those living next to Linton!!
