I was listening to some of the coverage of the continuing refugee crisis on the wireless. They were asking refugees where they had fled from. Thus far, the focus has been on Syria and, in particular, Syrian families.
Actually, we estimate that only between one and three percent of Syrian refugees currently move beyond the countries bordering Syria. What is now apparent, is that there has been a rush of other migrants prompted by the signal that Europe is planning to accommodate them with a mandatory quota system.
I was not surprised to hear so many young men admitting that they had come from the Punjab – what sort of war zone is that?
This is exactly what the Prime Minister warned, about the European mandatory quota proposal.
