Only 3% of the UK is developed.
The rest is empty space.
I say this not just to highlight how much we can afford to help refugees...
But also our own here at home who are homeless while 97% of the country is unused shrubbery.
Developing even 5% more (still less than 10% overall) would fix the UK and be one of the greatest economic boosts we could use to our advantage.
That's still leave 92% untouched so the antiquated can still look at fields on the train and motorways.

So does that mean you will be putting your name forward to house one of these refugees? Or, like Cameron, are you all for it as long as it doesnt impact on your life. Cameron's constituency has none. Also it doesnt impact on a lot of the othet MPs.
Do you honestly believe all the thousands heading to Europe now are refugees. All the fit, young men who are creating problems in Macedonia, Hungary etc do you think they are refugeex. The people on the train in Hungary the other day do you think they were refugees. Apparently, according to BBC just a small number were from Syria they reckoned about 9%. The rest were from Pakistan, Iraq, Afganistan and so on. Thats if they are telling the truth.
Do you havd the same concern TRUEBRIT for the disabled, homeless, elderley, ex servicemen of your own country. Obviously you dont.
People with cancer are dying because they cant get hold of vital drugs because of the cost. Yet the money can be found for translators who charge up £600 an hour. Dont you think that is morally wrong.
And what about such people as Alan Hemming's wife do you think she will be welcoming of these people which ISIS have admitted they have managed to infiltrate. What about the relatives of the Tunisian massacre?to a reply to: TrueBrit

As long as they are vetted to make sure they are REAL refugess and have no known criminal background then yeah.
Lets be fair the UK bares some responsibility for the mess in the ME.
Shame the US dont live up to there ideas of responsibility and take a few from the mess they helped cause.
End of the day though they need to be refugess not economic migrants, background checked and from a area we helped screw up!
O and all the property Blair and any politicians that voted for ME action should be seized and used to house such refugess.....
and it wasn't to sell our birth rite down the river because some lefties think it is the right thing to do.
Also because of the legal and legitimate war in Afghanistan we are less likely to be attacked this is a fact.
Why should my tax money be used to rectify the wrongs from the Arab Spring? Was it the UK that caused it?
"TERRORISTS are planning to strike in Britain within WEEKS, the Defence Secretary has warned, as he said the Government "would not hesitate" to launch further drone strikes against British jihadis in Syria."
“There are other terrorists involved in other plots that may come to fruition over the next few weeks and months and we wouldn’t hesitate to take similar action again. "There is a group of people who have lists of targets in our country, who are planning armed attacks on our streets, who are planning to disrupt major public events in this country and our job to keep us safe, with the security agencies, is to find out who they are, to track them down and, if there is no other way of preventing these attacks, then yes we will authorise strikes like we did.”
"BBC's Inside Out London Special tonight reports a 60 per cent rise in the number of attacks on women wearing headscarfs. Figures also show a 70 per cent increase in Islamophobic attacks in the capital in the 12 months up until July this year."
