a reply to: SprocketUK I hope because of my belief system or the fact my experience with immigration has not been as negative as others

This video has no source. I can't tell what is happening or where. The earth belongs to people, all the people. I found that Germany stopped taking refugees in and started sending some back.
This is unproven hysteria. Sounds similar to conservative fears of Mexicans in the US.

Do feminists upset you? That's a shame.
Ok, let me give it to you straight faced ... you think the refugees should be "welcomed".
I do, most definitely. Thankfully the Scottish Government does too.
The Scottish Government has repeatedly called on the UK Government to play a part in a co-ordinated European response to this emergency humanitarian issue and has agreed to take a fair and proportionate share of refugees in Scotland.
Following today’s comments by the Prime Minister that the UK will take 20,000 refugees by 2020 which will be funded through the UK aid budget, Humza Yousaf, Scotland’s Minister for Europe and International Development, said: “As made clear by the First Minister at last week’s emergency humanitarian summit, Scotland is willing to take our fair share of refugees to help some of the most vulnerable people in need.
“We welcome the Prime Minister’s shift in attitude and late recognition that the UK has a role to play as an important first step. The 20,000 refugees over five years should not be seen as a cap or an upper limit and we must also play our part in responding to the crisis on the southern European coast line.

You don't provide help to your own homeless, but want to give it to foreigners ... hypocrite.
Don't I? Are you sure about that? Really sure?
The people who really need our help, are still in the middle east ... getting beheaded, because they don't have the means, or the money to pay smugglers to smuggle them to Europe.
The UK is taking Syrians directly from refugee camps, one thing that I find myself agreeing with David Cameron about. What is it you're concerned about specifically? That the 'wrong' people are getting in? Healthy ones? How dare they be healthy.
The news made me angry, watching thousands of people men, women and children WALKING across Europe to find a place of safety.
There is poverty in Europe, of course there is. We live in a place where greed is King and human misery is an unfortunate by-product of keeping the rich rich. It is not the refugees' fault and we should not turn them away.

4 million people did vote UKIP as their democratic right and got 1 MP and Liberals with nowhere near that amount of votes got 8 seats. The Green Party even got 2 seats. On Remembrance Sunday UKIP were the only party who were not allowed to lay a wreath because of certain rules that say a party has to have 6 MP's. So the leader of 4 million people wasn't allowed to lay a wreath. You mean that democracy, yeah right!a reply to: woodwardjnr
