Pansy....you have, without realising it I think,,given a valid reason for not inviting hundreds of thousands of people to these shores.
At first I thought you would say, as my own dad did, that your father found it a rewarding experience. He always gave, from his limited income, bread and board to many. At the time I thought he was silly but now I recognise he was a kind soul.
I too have copied my dad ....limits though. I laid down ground rules. Rarely have I regretted it. A few years back I provided shelter, meals and money....advice too....to someone for a period of time. I used my gut instinct to make a judgement call. He knew he had to leave at some time because we discussed it. I get a birthday card every year from him....my birthday fell at this time. He is now in work and, I think, happy. Would I do that permanently? No.
Punkdoc...have you spoken to the youngsters? Even the most educated share a common dread...."leaving home", viz., "how can we manage without the EU; we never have" Not just Syrians ....people are coming from many countries. We simply do not have the space.
People ARE being gagged, are being suspended, are being warned.
Dove, so then you will take someone in? If not, why not? Seriously. I would be interested if anyone has .....genuinely interested and I will apologise and offer my respect. Nobody has to but please if you have say so.
if I was a member of IS this refugee issue would be a godsend. a shipment of 200 guns was seized a week or so ago here in the UK. Is this not a worry?
Our own borders need to be controlled by us.....refugees welcome. The EU will not alllow us this protection.
