It's official. So now give it a rest once and for all

Asylum claims fell by more than a fifth to just over 10,000 for the last quarter.

_40194417_asylum_0504_gra203.gif


So, let's make it crystal clear for the last time:

- We're not being 'swamped'
- Asylum applications are falling
- Labour has the issue well under control despite claims to the contrary by the racist brigade.

So change the fucking record already.
Beep boop. I'm a bot.

    Also, a lot of asylum seekers from Kosovo, and Iraq have been voluntarily going home in recent months. But that is not reported!

    Personally I think the more the merrier. Without Indian Hindus coming over around the 1950s we wouldn't have a Diwali celibration in Leicester. Do remember to come, it's great :)

    I hope this reflects a better world that we live in - fewer claims should = fewer reasons to make a claim.

    Furthermore, here are the top ten nations where applicants came from:


    Somalia: 1,000 applicants
    Iran: 725
    China: 615
    Zimbabwe: 545
    Turkey: 460
    DR Congo: 405
    Pakistan: 405
    India: 385
    Iraq: 340
    Afghanistan: 285

    Every one of those countries has been ravaged by war and/or has a history of serious human right abuses and political violence.

    Hardly 'bogus'.

    Hardly 'spongers'.

    More misrepresentations from HMGov

    maybe this ties in with Moxon/Hughes fiasco whereby would be asylum seekers from E. Bloc were rushed in on no real checks in Romania/Bulgaria, so instead of being here as asylum seekers they are here as supposed legal immigrants

    We'll never really know now

    I'm quite surprised that Sudan isnt in the top ten, but then I'm guessing no-one involved in that can afford to get here.

    is it selective vision or something far more sinister?

    read Aladdin's post properly, please.

    just because a pop group isn't in the top 10 doesn't mean it isn't in the top 40.

    come on, attention to detail, please.

    So change the fucking record already.

    frothing about posts ppl hadn't even made, tut tut

    No, why are 1,000 applicants making it here from Somalia across at least one continent of safe countries?

    I think we should be told:D

    because almost all of them stop in neighbouring countries, ie millions and by the time you check for asylum seekers this far away, its reduced to a trickle

    and also cause these people do want futures, and in france/germany's case, our economy is outdoing them and we dont have large unemplyment and we have less benefits

    Do you think people walk here from Somalia?

    No

    When you are on a boat or plane the notion pof borders becomes irrelevant, thus people get spread out, what wrong with that, don't think we should take our fair share?

    Oh poor ladymuck. Her mission is not going too well...

    I was wondering earlier what your most likely 'response' would be. I see that I got it right... When everything fails, blame the government of lying or getting the figures wrong.

    You must really be getting very desperate at BNP towers aren't ya? :D

    Because the UK has one of the oldest Somali expat communities in Europe. Bit like Brits going to Oz.

    Our fair share should be zero by the dismal 1951 Convention as they cross one or more continents of safe countries?

    Debatable, more like the Tories didn't stem the flow fromf Horn of Africa in late 80's

    Nothing like Brits going to Oz, we didn't offer assisted passage nor do we vet immigrants as in Oz

    Debatable? not at all, there have been immigrants from Somalia in Cardiff (Tiger Bay) for several generations. A lot of Brits go to Oz due to having a link (social and historical) there in the same way that people from Oz come here, its a common thing with migration.

    Debatable, you've no reason to suppose there was a knowledge of or connection between the large nos of Somalis leaving late '80s and the small no in cardiff

    UK originally colonized OZ, set up it population quite unlike the cardiffset up
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    I'm saying there is a historical connection that has existed with this country for some time, just like Britain and Austrailia. You asked originally why they came here and not other places in Europe, I am giving you a reason. End of.
