Really, that would be your first guess?

My first guess would be the conditions, safety and language.

For example, Lebanon's refugees population is estimated to be 19.5 per cent of the total population, and includes at least 1.5 million Syrian refugees, and estimated 83% of who are living below the extreme poverty line. You can totally understand someone wanting a better chance than that.

Well if language plays a role, forget Denmark. Danish is impossible.

They deliberately made it difficult to discourage immigrants.

Have you been to France? If I were an asylum seeker and When I got to France I saw how France had developed an immigrant underclass, I’d carry on walking too.

So the UK is a better place to come as an immigrant?

For the vast majority It's not.

It has an international reputation for being so. Whether or not that reputation is justifiable or still the case is debatable.

For all the issues we have with integration, take those and put them on steroids and that’s France. Plus we have a more flexible labour market and everyone speaks English.

If those things are important to the person, then in a word, yes.

3% of Migrants attempt to settle in the UK.

you're* Their*

It's more sad that state education has failed you and I'm not just talking about your poor spelling and punctuation sadly :(

I walked through Croydon 4 weeks ago, walked through the walkway to the Whitgift Centre and saw 4 or 5 people sleeping rough in the subway coming up to Lansdown rd, I feel ashamed if I see it in Canada, downtown Montreal or my home town of Croydon.

I sat outside having a beer at the Bedford next door to the home office, the ques were unbelievable. The people were looking at us, and I could only imagine what they were thinking. Sometimes I think CR is right where we need to change how we do things with regard to our fellow human beings seeking a better life just wanting the privileges we enjoy and take so much for granted through an accident of birth.

As for the racist accusations on here,nah, when you turn the debate into name-calling, you have just stopped the debate and made sure no one is going to think after you may have a point.

I have no issue with the UK accepting an number of people who are fleeing countries where their lives and freedoms are in danger, but how many of those trying to cross the channel are in that category?

Yes it is because neither france nor the UK has offered and facilitated inbound flights full off asylum seekers (unlike the leader of Belarus)

No one really cares about these people, including those meaninglessly posting RIP.

Oh look at the morally superior one FFS. How do you know that those who posted RIP were being meaningless and don't care?

I think I’m correct in saying that France already accepts more than four times as many asylum seekers as we do.

How is that fair? Is this your post Brexit vision for global Britain? Are we pulling our weight? I’m not surprised the French think we’re taking the piss.

How is it their responsibility to police every km of their vast coastline to ensure that nobody gets in a boat over to the U.K. who have explicitly told the rest of Europe that we want to be responsible for our own borders?

The problem with your first paragraph is, if, they are deemed not genuine, what happens to them. Also most, if not all, have no form of identification and it is therefore all but impossible to determine their true identity

You may call it being a realist most reasonable people will not.

Family links is one that springs to mind.

We’re much more likely to find out true identities if we process closer to the places we have bombed, before they’ve handed all their documents to the smugglers/slave traders (assuming their documents survived our high explosives).

We can’t moan about the very effect we voted for. We!=me, I didn’t vote to treat humans like vermin.
