Refugees and immigrants are NOT welcome here in the UK

31 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 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?

I agree with your anti immigration views.
Another problem that needs addressing is UK businesses that has China making products destined for the UK.
These greedy business owners who want China to make their goods so they can get greater profits at the expense of British people.
This appalling behavior does the following: China becomes economically richer. Gives them a strong military, because of greater spending power. Fuller employment to the Chinese. It also gives them free technical knowledge. They have to have the knowledge to make the items. I'm not talking about mundane things such as pots and pans, but technical products.
This attitude of getting the Chinese to make our products, also puts this country at the mercy of China. If China for some reason stopped the products from being sent to the UK, what alternatives are there to have these products as the factories don't exist here for most things we need.
These greedy business owners should be heavily fined for not having the means of production in this country. Heavy tariffs should be imposed immediately to 'wake them up'. Their concern should be for the people of this country and the country itself. Stop being greedy bastards and do the right thing. Look after the people here, not in China.

I work for large multi national oil companies (self employed). I was given a short term placement on the East coast at a large gas terminal. One of the other gang members suggested a night out in Great Yarmouth, OMG, not the place to be after dark, I can honestly say that was scary. The place is a dump with lots of immigrants roaming the streets, drunken fights, and the constant wailing of police sirens. Two pints and we all went back to our hotel away from the place. Ive been to loads of places around the world while working, but that was not a pleasant experience. I now read in the press that £50 million of drugs was found there washed up on a beach, say no more.

It's about time the leaders of this country talked about what they will do for the NATIVES of this land instead of pandering to the newcomers every need! It's true to say not all Muslim's are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslim arnt they!!! The normal people ,the small people have had enough and soon the people with money, ie TV stars and the like who don't have to live next door to them will have there comupance !!! And the little people will vote for there own and that will be the inch we need!!!

Here's a tip, If you've got a few bob tucked away and are totally sick of the UK, move to one of the countries that all these immo's are coming from, cause all their crim's will be here and given human rights protection by the UK/Euro do-gooders.

Get things and your numbers in perspective. There are far more migrants on the move at the moment or wanting to move than all the great migrations in the past: more than Genghis Khan's terrible hordes, more than the Goths, the Ostrogoths, the Visigoths, the Slavs, the Celts, the Teutons, the Normans: far more than all the Africans that moved to Europe at the end of the Ice Age, more than all of Islam's horde in the 600s, much more than all past movements of people. The problem is numbers. There are far too many.

Male migrants from Syria aged 18-65 should be compulsorily recruited to serve in an army to liberate their lands from ISIS. For this work they should be paid some monies to support their families which should be housed in refugee camps in Turkey and/or Jordan or Lebanon. The moment any lands in Syria are successfully liberated, the people should be returned home from the camps. Boots on the ground? this is where they should be recruited from.

Immigrants. I don't want their labour. I have just been rejected by an immigrant so-called craftsman [probably unqualified] concerning the fitting of a Honeywell room thermostat for our heating system. I was told by the fitter that I was too fussy, too specific regarding my requirements. I wanted a proper formal quote including VAT, and a specific time regarding their attendance to do the job. Who do these people think they are? They wanted £75 per hour for their labour. What a joke! Crooks IMHO. Fitting a thermostat is relatively unskilled labour.

Today, David Cameron diverts £12bn to fortify against terror. The bill will be met by cuts in UK welfare and public spending. I must admit, even this figure has taken me by suprise. I now fear tax increases will be imposed much sooner than even I expected. The Governments borrowing has risen this year dramatically, which in turn now means the UK is even more in Nation debt. Make of this as you will, but soon the BoE will vote an interest rate hike, and when that starts it will enevitably continue.

Seems ironic that so many people sitting on their high horses shouted down UKIP and Farage (at the last election) when he clearly predicted these very dangers about immigration. And now these people at this very moment are whinning about terrorists and the dangers to their own life styles. This is typical of the short sighted morons that the UK holds, "I'm OK jack" until things start to affect themselves. Well Folks, It's too late, because the problem is now so big it's coming this way for sure. Here's one final thought for you, where's this Government going to get the money from to counter this massive terrorism problem when they say they have to cut Public finances to the bone.... Watch out for income tax raises.
