Of course they're not all fleeing for their lives. Similarly they're not all scrounging wasters.

The one's who were genuinely fleeing for their lives would, by common sense definition, be terrified & I'd expect them to claim asylum in the first safe country.

If you were being chased & were fleeing for your life would you:

a: bang on the first house door you could reach or

b: run until you found a house that you liked.

For housing perhaps they could repurpose those huge Nightingale hospitals they built because the Oxford buffoon told them to expect half a million dead and we ordered thousands of ventilators soon to be appearing on eBay as aquarium pumps.

i would be sad to see Rita go as she is rarely opinionated and always friendly.....
i do disagree with Sparky 90% of the time, and of course disagree with him on this subject.
we should have an open door, but not an open till drawer, i think they should be cared for as the DPs were cared for after the war, they should not be allowed, free legal aid, and if these lawyers feel the need to represent them i cant for the life of me understand why we should be paying them to do it....
but stay with us Rita, there are subjects and posters i just ignore, and i think you should do the same...

crabbyob, given the vast number of possible  DPs there could be around the world, who seem to prefer the UK to many other locations, at what point would you say enough is enough ?, when we are treading on each others toes, IMO we are already overloaded with non Brits.

No point reasoning with closed minds Mac. Each positive that they know exactly what the problem is, why it's as it is and how it should best be handled. I'm afraid anybody with any other view, no matter how informed, is whistling into the wind and I wouldn't waste what breath I have left.

Well, at least I have admitted I don't have a solution - but disapprove of solutions involving murder

I know z, I'm not naive.  Its the blanket judgements that tick me off.  😔

might this be a good point to ask what percentage of legal Brits were actual brits seventy years ago?

A pretty high proportion. In my circle of friends, family and acquaintances, I can only think of one who wasnít born in the UK. A boy at school was born in Mauritius , but as I knew him from age eleven, he was in the UK from an early age. No idea about his parents.
Donít forget that my mother and her siblings were all born in the UK - all Ireland was part of the UK back then

You'll not get an answer to that question Sparky, I've asked it many times.

However, the immigrant supporters mantra is anyone living in a war zone or in a country where they're oppressed, should be allowed into the UK so we're talking about a few hundred million.

I certainly never met any kids that weren't from white British families.

In fact it was a rarity to see a kid from another part of the UK.
