Apparently 89,000 people think the answer is no. A government petition 106477 asking for no more immigrants to be let into the UK has been building
in numbers since Friday. A lot of people seem angry that David Cameron has been swayed by a small number of people (400,000 plus to be exact) to let
more refugees into the Country.
The media have swayed public opinion without a shadow of doubt. The constant message of "desperate migants", photographs of young children etc have
melted the hearts of some of the British people the BBC would have us believe. However, when I am out and about speaking to people the general
consensus seems to be although people feel empathy with the genuine refugees and feel they should be helped people are also worried and frightened
about the cost to the UK, but more so than that they are worried from a security point of view.
Is it wise for Merkel to keep pressing the message that all refugees are welcome? Can she say that all of the people who are making it to Germany are
in fact genuine refugees or are the vast majority of them economic migrants. More importantly how can she not see how dangerous this is for Europe
and the UK. ISIS have said on many occasions they are smuggling their own fighters into Europe because of the vulnerability of Europe's borders. As
thousands are arriving by the day and seem to be mainly young, fit, males (although the media would have us believe they are mainly families) without
a shadow of doubt there will be a few hundred who have slipped through the net.
Its only two weeks ago since the guy on the train was stopped from carrying out an atrocity by the US Marines. Why then do our leaders seem not to be
listening to the majority of people and instead are listening to the minority. Discuss.
