Scabies is rife and 1 in 4 refugees have tested positive for HepC. The anti immigration vote is now rocketing which is probaby just as well as recent reports state that the majority of the refugees don't want to remain in Italy in any event but go on to Germany or Sweden.
Qaddafi was something like Europe's bouncer, helping to keep the potentially significant number of African migrants and refugees from ever reaching the continent. His methods were terrible: Libya imprisoned migrants in camps where rape and torture were widespread. But Europe was happy to have someone else worrying about the problem
In 2003, Sweden's rape statistics were higher than average at 9.24, but in 2005 they shot up to 36.8 and by 2008 were up to 53.2. Now they are almost certainly even higher as Muslim immigrants continue forming a larger percentage of the population.
With Muslims represented in as many as 77 percent of the rape cases and a major increase in rape cases paralleling a major increase in Muslim immigration, the wages of Muslim immigration are proving to be a sexual assault epidemic by a misogynistic ideology.

Yup for some reason best known to the Swedish Government, they agreed to the EU quotas and then some but I think they are going to seriously regret it on an economic and on a personal basis. At some point Sweden is going to have to make a stand before its population get more restless. I don't believe any one EU country has the resources to cope with the sheer numbers which don't show much signs of alleviating
The Merkel media machine has seriously given those in poorer ME & African countries a false sense of the real conditions in Europe. It is not Nirvana the streets are not lined with gold welfare jobs and free housing and for those legally entering, there is a lot of red tape and paperwork to go through. The reason so many are now upping and leaving Turkey is that Turkey is not a rich country and the media coverage and promises made by the EU has meant that those that were awaiting legal asylum or immigration are now jumping the queues and those that were settled in Turkey feel badly done by and also want to live in this utopian Garden of Eden. The reality hits them when they end up in Croatia Serbia Romania or Czech Republic. These countries are not much better off than the countries the migrants left and have their own internal strife and conflicts with poverty and austerity. So the refugees refuse to stay and yell and beg to go to Germany & Sweden based on the promises of those Governments of an easier time and better living conditions, meaning double or triple the numbers of refugees now in those countries with the knock on effect of tension, poor living conditions in camps, opposing grouups thrown together into one big melting pot
We the little people on the ground floor can only watch now and see how it all unfolds and for most of us pray that our countries do exit the EU so we are able to apply our own solutions and standards and laws in finding a solution. I feel firmly that the EU has failed politically and economically with the biggest richest countries having the power and the littlest bowing to their perceived supremacy which was NOT what the EU was originally intended for
Business is all I want the UK to do with the EU, you can keep your political union and free borders.

Western Europe only wants to do business.
If this below statement is correct and I've no reason to believe otherwise as yet, then it is clear that yes this has been planned for years and clearly Russia wants in with regards to the gas & oil. Assad refused to sign the pipeline deal from Qatar to Europe which bypassed Russia who was Europes' then main supplier of gas & oil. Assad said it was to protect Russian interests in Europe for the supply of natural gas. It seems to me that this was the main kick off point for getting rid of Assad.
According to retired NATO Secretary General Wesley Clark, a memo from the Office of the US Secretary of Defense just a few weeks after 9/11 revealed plans to "attack and destroy the governments in 7 countries in five years", starting with Iraq and moving on to "Syria, Lebanon, Libya, Somalia, Sudan and Iran." In a subsequent interview, Clark argues that this strategy is fundamentally about control of the region's vast oil and gas resources.
whatever regime comes after" Assad, it will be "completely" in Saudi Arabia's hands and will "not sign any agreement allowing any Gulf country to transport its gas across Syria to Europe and compete with Russian gas export
Your politicians like all 'power hungry' politicians were caught in the
glare of *power* like all politicians thinking they would swim in the
same pool as the 'big fishes' only to find they end up as insignificant
little tiddlers with no teeth in a pool of 'sharks' .... BIG MISTAKE!!!
The cracks are beginning to show ... a split is inevitable the only thing
in doubt is how long will it take.
