Do you not think that the UK and France should be taking in thousands of refugees and granting them asylum. I know there is still the problem of logistics and the sorting out the genuine asylum seekers from the others.
At the moment the refugees who are coming across in small boats are paying a lot of money to do this. Germany is accepting the boat people who have paid these vast amounts of money to be transported. In order to be able to pay the amounts required many are from professional occupations such as doctors, engineers etc. . Therefore it is Germany's gain.
We are merely taking in refugees from camps in bordering countries
