Refugees and immigrants are NOT welcome here in the UK

44 comments  Add a comment

This is going to sound a little harsh to some, but I'm of the opinion that we shouldn't be opening our arms wide and welcoming in thousands of refugees and asylum seekers. As far as I am concerned they are most certainly NOT welcome here and whilst I understand they are going through a particularly difficult time at the moment, I think that we should put the citizens of this country first in this instance.

My view is that rather than deal with the aftermath of some problem - and let's be frank, we're talking about the spread of conflict and the group that calls itself IS, we should be tackling the root of the problem and eradicating it properly. I'd rather my tax money was spent on removing IS properly so that these people can rebuild their country than rehousing them over here. Also, one of the problems with taking on refugees is that once the crisis is over, they're unlikely to go back home again. The people of Germany, who can perhaps be forgiving for trying to atone for the sin of their fathers with a great act of kindness may well regret the decision to take in so many people years down the line. Whilst on the subject of IS and the people who fight for them. If anyone here wants to go well we should let them. We'll take them out with the next drone strike too!

Refugees Regarding immigration in general including so-called economic migration, I'm not really in favour of that either unless that person is moving here to take up a worthwhile employment or to fill a much needed position such as a doctor, nurse, or scientist. By the way, when I say worthwhile I don't mean minimum wage cleaning staff as I know full well that many unscrupulous employers in this country would rather employ cheap immigrant labour than employ someone who is resident here and may know a little bit about their rights.

In summary, close the borders to the hoards looking to exploit our welfare system, get out of the EU (that's a no-brainer) and get some hardware and manpower in place to help these people deal with the problem instead of going for the sticking plaster solution!

I think the government can send help to those immigrants and refugees without bringing them to the UK. People from the UK paying their taxes so UK citizens must always be the priority.

IMMIGRATION CANT BE STOPPED, The Germans couldnt get over in the 40s hardly a one, but here we are 2021 and are boarders well arent boarders, ok then cant stop it, SO with every one that enters the UK, our WHO budget is cut by 100k per immigrant to fund each one of them, we pay too much to the WHO less than Germny and are pensioners sit on pensions the lowest in europe.

we bits have no more say in our own country the government would rather listen to the mass immigration people that they welcome here in the boat loads than listen to
its own people, our country is been taken over by these immigrants and no one can see what is happening here or don`t want to, it is not rocket science for god sake what is wrong with our government they are supposed to be highly educated people
they need to take their blinkers off and step up for their own country, I really hope
when the next election comes round we all stay at home and don`t vote what is the point ? then they just might know how the British people feel about the disastrous
way they run this once beautiful country of ours. Right now i would rather go back
to the 50`s when people never had so much, but there was one thing we did have
was happiness playing on our streets and you could walk on the dark streets in those days where you could leave your doors open too but all that has gone.
We dare not go out at night any more how sad is that for a country most people envy
please please government get your act together and give us back our beautiful country

at little harsh!? we shouldn't be allowing any in! its that simple and any that come here asylum or not should be shipped out immediately! its that simple! if someone sneaks in to your home you don't let them stay! you take a bat to their head! we ahve been getting invaded for decades now! when I was in my early 20s and was very naive indeed I was friends with a girl who's father was very high up in the southern ports management and he would often say what ever the media state are flooding in times it by 10 at least! I have watched over the last few decades our country change for the worse. I have been in and around no go areas and been threatened for just walking down a particular street not knowing the area! this includes cities such as Manchester, Bradford (of course) London.... the list goes on, I keep my self to my self and im not a small chap so really find it strage to be threatened for no reason, also over and over again by different groups to the point where i ahd to go in to a poilice station to find refuge!

The uk mass immigration is part and parcel of the ruling classes plan to put these immigrants in place to for through a coical scoring system similar to china and keep the masses at bay, also to sow division not only between religions and cultures but also between our selves with people being pushed in to either left wing or right wing camps depending on why the support something! I support deporting ALL ILLIGAL immigrants every single one! and doesn't matter when they came here! I am in favour of controlled immigration, much like if I wanted to go live in another country I would have to go through the proper channels make sure I had a high enough paying job to support me and my family and not leach off anyone else. also I would have to adopt the local culture, if I didn't like it then I wouldn't go!

No more please! Our way of life is being eradicated. Instead of them mixing with us and our laws, we are supposed to bow to their ways, over 120 different cultures and counting. When do the British people get a say we have to put with them. Sick to death of this. Why can't they go to neighbouring countries? Oh sorry, no freebies.

I know this is quite an old gripe but I would like to re-iterate Mark Darks comments, my god we could actually live in the same town. We are saturated with immigrants and some (especially the illegals) are being ferried up from the South Coast whilst awaiting to see if asylum is granted, and if and when they are refused they are taken back down South to be deported, how much does that cost the tax payer and why is it happening? We have had them housed in our local hotels whilst they wait for their free housing. We have more mosques being built along with a super mosque which is being extended along a road that cannot accommodate the traffic, why was it given the go ahead? I’m fed up, my home town, the town I have lived in most of my life is not my town anymore, it’s unrecognisable. Finding a restaurant or takeaway that isn’t Halal is impossible, and drug/violent crimes have escalated to a point where drugs are opening and brazenly sold in broad day light, although I’m not saying all immigrants are drug dealers. So what can we do about it, absolutely nothing as you come across racist and who can you turn to to air your concerns? I’m not adverse to people coming living here but it does seem that certain towns take in a disproportionate amount of asylum seekers why are they not evenly distributed across the country?
