Syrian immigrants

I think we in Britain have developed a certain numbness to the outrages to which you refer John. We have a recent history of being shafted by governments to know that they withold what information they choose to while expecting the people to blindly follow. As for any outrage these days ,we are further numbed by the constant spouting ,in full colour, from the box in the corner to the extent that the silent majority of Brits have started to care more for their parochial surroundings than the world outside.

So Brussels is now heavily criticising Greece for its sieve like borders & ease with which migrants are entering the EU. It is also suggesting that maybe individual countries should be beefing up border security to weed out any undesirables. Seeing as some terrorists are travelling on EU passports it looks very much as if the principle of free movement within the EU could be under threat.

The EU Mandarins have had over 10 years to respond to this "crisis"   The Dublin Rules were in place then, but they allowed Italy and Greece to ignore them, by allowing migrants to move further into Europe, rather than establishing internment and processing camps at Lampedusa and Lesbos, where non-refugees could have been weeded out and deported asap. The exodus was then further exacerbated by Frau Merkel invited them to Germany, without the slightest idea of the consequences. Now that the chickens have come home to roost, Germany and Co are blaming the Greeks, Shengen is dead; and most EU Countries are finally building fences. Such is the shambolic state of the EU, and the sooner we leave the better. :angry:

I notice Sweden is to deport 80,000 "asylum seekers", presumably for being identified as economic chancers. This political move comes in the wake of the stabbing of a Swedish care worker by a young migrant. They say, that because of the high number, charter flights will be used, but it may take many years. Problem: if these migrants start families, especially with local girls; they will no doubt become entitled to "the right to a family life"; so will no doubt take their cases to the ECHR and win. Such is the price of empathy.

What we don't seem to be hearing about now is what progress is being made in sorting out the situation in Syria so these eager asylum seekers can get themselves back home asap. Except for the economic benefits offered by certain European countries, you would expect refugees to seek shelter in countries with similar cultures to their own.
