The Russians are bombing Aleppo causing tens of thousands of civilians to flee to the Syrian/Turkish border. The Turks have been given several $billions to deal with the flow of migrants and to contain them, they are demanding several $billions more. Germany has estimated it will cost them Euros 50 billion (next year)  to deal with the influx of migrants they have invited in. The whole European financial structure will be placed under intolerable pressure as this farce continues and continue it will until breaking point is reached. A breaking point that will be acted upon too late!! The plight of the REAL refugees, those REALLY fleeing the bombs, ISIL et al, is truly heart breaking but WE are complicit in it all. WE are helping perpetuate the war in Syria as much as the Russians are trying to stop it by indiscriminate bombing. WE are still clinging to the belief that we can help oust Assad all the time knowing we are afraid to do anything to antagonise his most powerful supporter.....Russia. Add into the refugee crisis the hundreds of thousands of economic migrants and clandestine terrorists from the middle eastern countries along with the Eastern European economic migrants and and our own Indian/Pakistani yearly influx and we have a recipe for financial and social disaster!! What REALLY pees me off is; if i can see what is happening why can't those who are in power see it!!

They refuse to see the reality because it does not fit into their moronic plans for the future of this beleagured little world of ours!! Their plans do not include looking after the poor and sick in this country, or any other country, since they still believe we in UK are a "World " power, whereas we live nowadays among the "others of  this world . We NEED to be out of EU, and left to look after ourselves the way we have done for so many centuries. UK must also stop all payments to these so called "impoverished countries" who somehow manage to build space exploration and testing modules, not to mention their nuclear capabilities. Let us for a change, look after ourselves, and not these parasitic countries of the world. We work for what we have got, rather than sponge off others. Rant over (for now)

I like (love, more like !)the idea the Polish Foreign Minister has proposed : To form an Army from all the Syrian men arriving in Europe, which could then return to their homeland & fight for their freedom. He thinks it's wrong that tens of thousands of young Syrian men jump out of rubber rafts & don't ask for food, water or clothes but  rather ask where they can charge their smartphones. Also wrong is the fact these same able bodied migrants sit in the town squares of European towns & villages sipping coffee whilst expecting Western Forces to fight for their security. Seeing some of the photos of many so-called refugees leaving the deflated rafts & lifejackets & just littering the beaches, expecting government employees to clear up after them whilst they take "selfies" of themselves and look for the UN supplied phone charging stations ( who paid I wonder ??) makes a mockery of the notion they're dishevelled, traumatised & starving individuals fleeing from a war torn country. Some, I accept, may be, but a greater number seem to be jumping on the band wagon (gravy train) and in doing so, "extracting the Michael". A great idea from the Polish Foreign Minister then IMO - Eligible young Syrian men, "enlist" & fight for your freedom, or be deported. A great solution to  a growing & expensive problem me thinks !

Sitting on the beach reading your comments on what "OUR "so called leaders have in store for us minions and agreeing wholeheartedly with some in fact most of the comments posted when my silence was interrupted,boo you say ,well let me inform of what made my teeth rattle. India has just put into commission 2 very large hovercraft ,and a helicopter for the local coast guard for the area enclosing Calangute/Candalim Goa ,about 20/25 miles of beach ports etc.Not being a naval ship builder I wouldn't hazard a guess on how much these pieces of military hardware cost let alone a large helicopter,and as India has a large coastline you do the maths .Whats he on about ,well we give India about £200million a year for "aid" yet we are cutting our own defence forces to Boy Scout proportions,it just doesn't make sense. We have 2 aircraft carriers but No planes for 4 yes 4 Feckin years,we have armoured regiments driving trucks (for a better word) down to 2 and half squadrons strength from our day ,yes "OUR " leaders know exactly where there taking us.!!!!! Now the Germans have really shot themselves in the foot with the number of "migrants" they have allowed to come into their country,yes help them ,yes feed them,yes protect them ,but for FECK sake all the ones I've seen on the TV news a very large proportion are young men who should be doing their best to free their country from oppression.The Polish guy was right on the ball ,train em and send them "Home"to sort it out .Someone mentioned Turkey ,getting billions from Europe and doing nowt ,reason Russia has stopped it citizens from going there ,and you say so what ,it means that they over 1500 hotels closed through no one going there ,meaning Nobody is spending foreign currency their broke ,guess we're that money for Europe is going ?? If you know the answer send the info to Brussels EU headquarters.Now back to Beeb world service

I agree totally JK, I have thought this myself about these young Syrians coming over in their multi thousands, they SHOULD be defending their own country, and not looking for an easy life in the west, cared for by the tax paying citizens of Western Europe. They are, by their actions so far, unliked, unwanted and over here...Round them up put them all inn teansport ships, tell them they are off to the west, then lock then in these ships until they arrive at their destination......their home country. and if the UN SAY IT IS AGAINST THE LAW, THEN SEND THEM ALL TO UN HQ FOR THEM TO LOOK AFTER. I am fed up of being told that WE must take these "refugees" in by overpaid morons in UN and EU. We need the vote on EU exit now..... And as for call me DAVE saying he will be letting people out of jail earlier than they should be, keeping them locked up at weekends, how many does he expect WILL return on the first weekend after they are released???? He has definitely lost the plot there, they are there in jail to protect us innocents...(well some of us could be innocent...)
