    play nice please.

    Debate the topic, not attack each other. Destroys the thread and ruins it for others if people want to spend time hurling personal insults.

    i dont think anyone hates these people, its that most of us can see what these refugees really are, chancers, scammers, economic migrants.

    Did you know only 1 in 4 apparently come from Syria, most are from third world countries looking for a better life, and whilst I cant fault anyone looking for a better life as a continent we simple cannot afford to economically or sociably allow this to happen.

    Im not attacking you at all, I just want to know why you dont actually comment on what you post? It looks like a story of merit and yet you just copy and paste without any commentary.

    Such a shame, because most people will ignore this and move along, where you could have done your self a bigger favor and created some discussion on what you point is.
