David Cameron: UK to accept ‘thousands’ more Syrian refugees
The UK is to provide resettlement to “thousands” more Syrian refugees in response to the worsening humanitarian crisis, David Cameron has announced.
No figure has been decided but the prime minister said the extra refugees would come from camps bordering Syria, not from among those already in Europe.
Britain, he said, would act with “head and heart” to help those most in need.
He also announced a further £100m in humanitarian aid for those in camps in Syria, Turkey, Jordan and the Lebanon.
Well ain’t that sweet? We get to have loads more Syrians – mix ’em up with our nice collections of other assorted Muslims – AND we get to send £100m to somewhere. Wow! This really is a win-win for the British ain’t it? But I do wonder… Given government inefficiency in all things… Could we get more be-headings and squalor for our 100mil if we bought them on the open market?
In other news, you can get politicians to do anything if you tweet enough pictures of cute dead children. So… Do that.
Hey, if you prefer your reading material in the form of fiction, may I suggest this book…
