The increase is being driven by a surge in the number of asylum seekers in the country as well as changes to the way they are housed.

The number receiving their living costs from the taxpayer has increased by 40 per cent since 2015, according to the Home Office data quietly published last week.

Some 56,570 asylum seekers and their dependants were receiving living allowances at the end of June, with the majority also receiving free accommodation, compared with just over 40,000 in 2015.

A record number are still getting taxpayer-funded assistance even though their claims for refugee status have been thrown out.

Despite exhausting their appeal routes, and failing to persuade the courts that they are genuine refugees, they get taxpayer cash because they are destitute and cannot be removed from the UK.

Overwhelming vast majority are economic migrants and have arrived here after traveling through numerous safe countries!


And how many are jihadists planning to do us harm some time in the future?


Those from Africa should be returned to the African Union to resettle somewhere in Africa and those from the middle East should be returned to the Arab League to resettle somewhere there.


The more we allow them to come here and stay, the more will try to come here and stay.


This cannot carry on!

Very few, if any, I would say.  By the very act of running away from trouble they are seeking to avoid harm, not gravitating toward it.  

And there is little justification, other than your personal bias, for segregating Africans and Middle Easterners.  Why not Norwegians?

We don't have any Norwegians arriving here claiming asylum after they have travelled through other safe countries on route here...

Surely there are places in the vast continent of Africa and the numerous safe oil rich countries where they can be given safe places to live...!?


Isnt it the case that they are claiming to be wanting a safe place to live...!?


Or are they just mis-using the asylum rules to bullshit their way into getting a chance to live here in the UK...!?

I don't think so.

To be honest, they should live anywhere they want. I think those who hold your opinion of divisiveness are petutating the disunity from which they are escaping (disagreement -> disunity -> civil war). All they want is a peaceful community in which to raise their families.

What lacks any real, valid basis is your type of racial nationalism.

Plenty of safe places for them to live in countries near to their place of origin.


And that is where they should be going to.

The safe place that comes to mind is the UK. Why look elsewhere?

Pretty much.  There's no NHS, yet.  But at 60, Social Security and Medicare kick in and he can always find Section 8 housing.  Education is free, and hot lunches for the kids, so at least that's one meal a day for them.  They are messing with food stamps, but with the virus, there are plenty of food banks.  Start with the Salvation Army.

Actually he cant, and you know better.

Tommy would have more issues than Ben did in the UK because he doesn't have an American wife.

Government services like food stamps are available to refugees but not immigrants. Tommy could never get classified as a refugee.

He could live with these folks that are so prevalent in your shithole city.

I've had conversations with white people from England who tell me, with a straight face, that they're just fed up with all the immigration -- as though they're not speaking to an immigrant.

It leads me to believe there are only certain types of immigration they're fed up with.

Only white people?

My next door neighbours are Indian, they were heartily  sick of the immigration system too.

As are millions of various shade of Brit, who saw the EU open door policy as damaging to this countries workforce.
When British jobs are advertised in other EU countries and filled before they are advertised in the home country....surely anyone  can see why people who are out of work because a foreign labour force are prepared to work  for far less money (they can afford to because they have far less overheads) object to immigrants flooding in and taking the jobs.

Obviously this peaked a few years ago, especially in the building and catering trades, but people have long memories, which is probably why, when the chance came, the majority of the country voted out ....which has finally, after years, has now happened. cheers

Incidentally Ben, we had this conversation years ago, and I did point out back then that the open door the UK provided to EU residents was one reason why the authorities here drastically limited immigration from none EU countries, which obviously included the US....of whatever colour.

I have found that many immigrants, of any color or race, have issues with a wide open immigration policy. I think they feel they earned the right to immigrate, and resent others that just waltz in and believe staying is in a new country is some form of a human right.

We often see immigrants here on TV moaning about immigration. Razz

But....if people have come here, settled, maybe for two or three generations, worked hard and prospered, (my neighbours are doctors and business owners) I can understand they feel loyal to the country they have dedicated their lives to, paid their taxes, bought their homes in etc etc.

We don't call those folks immigrants. Only people that move here or their children. Except for Native Americans were all kind of immigrants here.

I'm talking about folks born in other countries. They had to jump through hoops (like Ben) and often resent people that use loopholes to avoid those hoops.

I wouldn't wish my struggle to immigrate to the UK on anyone.

And actually, the reason I got my visa is Section 8.

Do you think you should have been able to simply move there and live there, if you weren't married to a UK citizen?

Should anyone? Or should there be a valid reason, like work, marriage to a resident or being a refugee escaping an oppressive regime?

I think countries have the right to admit or not who they want.

We are an island.....what may seem like a pot of waiting gold at the end of the rainbow for some.....results in shortage of all NHS services, housing, jobs, schools, education, etc, etc for the people who live on that island.

Do we want more terrorism here? more people who want to dictate who or what we worship? women to be thrown back into the dark ages because they are inferior to men? the colour of our skin or the way we dress to dictate how others can treat us?

Exaggeration...yep, but open up borders to whoever, whatever and from wherever people want to enter unhindered from, and the second paragraph could become the reality of the future.....the first paragraph is already a reality for millions on this little old island of ours. Wink

I dont know. Travel is different than living and using community funds. I'm a pretty open border kind of guy until benefits are thrown into the mix.

Does Tommy have a natural right to sleep on your couch? Do you have a natural right to refuse him?

I think most countries have decided that they have borders and there will be criteria for crossing them and becoming residents and or citizens.

I dont know.  Travel is different than living and using community funds. I'm a pretty open border kind of guy until benefits are thrown into the mix.

Don't communities have a right to determine how community funds are used? Or, do you have other plans for use of those funds?

Sure they do. But it's not some of sort of natural right as to how to use them.

I can't speak for the majority on what they want to do, only myself. I'm typically a minority on these things.

If it's not a "natural right", what sort of right is it? Natural right is a right you are born with, as a function of the State of Nature. It's another way of saying all people are created equal, and no one has (or should have) a right s/he wasn't born with.

Once you have a community, the amalgam of all rights become community rights. The community, as a collection of individuals, has that same right to use the collective funds just as each individual would.

Any other kind of right is derivative...i.e., a constitutional right derives from a constitution; or a legal right derives from some law; or an economic right derives from a system of economics. Derivative rights depend upon the system adopted, by acquiescence of all concerned.

Here in UK we have tens of thousands of British people sleeping rough on the streets and in shop doorways... While we have tens of thousands of foreigners who have entered this country illegally being put up in hotels and given other flats/housing at taxpayers expense because they said the magic word 'asylum' on arrival, and gave authorities some bullshit sob story...

Are you saying the foreigners are smarter than British people, and can work the system better?  If so, I want them running our shops and factories.

Maybe you ought to be for a swap?  Wink

Remember Europeans trading Africans for cheap guns and other products?

December 2019 it was estimated 280,000 were homeless in the UK, many sleeping rough.

There are an increasing number of foodbanks, 2,000 last year, a 19% increase from 2018,  many more have opened this year.

Many families who need help from foodbanks work for a living but still cant earn enough to  provide enough money for food.

Far too many are abusing a system that is also skewed in their favour.

A fair % of people living on the streets are ex military, who fought for the country and either through circumstance, PTS or other possible mental and physical  health problems, can no longer fit back into a society who seems to wash their hands of them.

Do we want to swap them for potentially dangerous dishonest cheats who are here under false pretences?

I'm for taking care of anyone in genuine need. But then I am a liberal, and liberals are problem solvers, not money-grubbers.

It's really not an 'either/or' situation. A modern country like the UK should be able to care for all who are in serious need. If ex-military people need help, then help them. If immigrants are in serious need, then help them. When you're out of resources, shut the doors.

No matter where your politics lie, politicians spend the peoples money not their own.
And when people who were bred and born here, or have immigrated and made a decent life for themselves and their families, then find bit by bit their finances are stretched beyond limit, they can't get a house or a job, nor a Dr's appointment or a bed in hospital for a much needed op, I guess you could say that for millions of people ...they are out of resources.

The bottom line is the population of the world is too big for everyone to have a fair share of resources and live a comfortable life.
Its not like I could just up and move to Australia, New Zealand, Canada or even the US now that I am retiring age, as I don't have money to keep myself and I am too old now to be of any use, I could pick a house in any of these countries and move in and say I'll do your housework/make myself useful, if you let me live here as one of the family and you take care of me, why should I go to any of these places and not paid a penny in yet expect healthcare if or when something goes wrong....
When everything is free everywhere, maybe unlimited access to other countries will be ok.

Wealth will never be distributed evenly.
A small % of people hold a large % of the worlds finances.
No matter how rich a country may seem, many people will be without whilst others prosper.

If anyone has a solution to that problem I'm sure we would love to hear it.

Yep. That's the real problem. As long as institutions and politicians keep favoring the rich and privileged, there will always be resources. Just gotta find em.

Also, I never said I have the right to take benefits without working.

To clarify my question: Does a government, or any other entity or person, have any natural right to tell me that I must not take another step - that I must not cross an imaginary line - when I have no track record of wrongdoing?

I'm not talking about walking into someone's house and declaring it my home, by the way. I'm only talking about taking up an empty space the size of myself, in buildings in which I am explicitly or implicitly welcome.
