Comin’ over here stealing our jobs, all claiming benefits for their 15 kids in Bongo Bongo Land, speaking foreign gibberish…This seemed to be the battle cry over Middle England during the general election, oh how much has changed over the past four months.
All it takes is a photo of a dead child and suddenly the gates are open. With hundreds of thousands calling on the government to allow thousands more refugees into the country.
Now perhaps you are saying to yourself but surely before the election the debate was about immigration? Which is true. Immigrants come to Britain to work and settle, they are entitled to work, they pay taxes and create jobs all whilst adding diversity to the cultural miasma that is Great Britain. Refugees don’t. They don’t come to Britain to work, they have no right to work, can’t pay taxes and are an active drain on the exchequer and whilst they do still add diversity to our nation, they’ve come to Britain because they literally have nowhere else to go. Their homes have been bombed, their towns levelled and their lives thrown into turmoil, all to subjugate the wills of genocidal mad men and violent fundamentalists.
Now I’ve always been pro immigration, the benefits are astounding, new fashions, new cuisines, new music, new entertainment and new cultures, not to mention new taxpayers. But in light of recent revelations about this humanitarian crisis it is this writers opinion that more should be done in support of refugees, the United Kingdom has a moral obligation to help those in need, as the sixth wealthiest country in the world we should be both splashing the cash to help out but also looking at the root causes of this issue. Many may ask what right Britain as a nation has to interfere in the disputes and politics of other nations, but when so many are asking for help and asking for asylum, what right does Britain have to bury its head in the sand.
So to all asylum seekers who are comin’ over ‘ere…get em in.
