There needs to be balance in things like this. Unfortunately some of the liberals really forget what's important at home. Britain has a history of a solid military and it's a shame to see it cut down. Also they need to remember their own. Eventually if you don't take care of your own you won't be able to care for others.

Why aren't the North Koreans rising up against their rulers? It took a long time for the former communistic countries in Europe to get rid of their totalitarian governments, why? It took a long time for the South American countries to get rid of their military juntas, why? The Cambodians couldn't get rid of Pol Pot until Vietnam intervened militarily. The list goes on and on

So we can read about historical events and learn, but why reading about things when not learning a damn thing? That is a waste of time
No but rather than opening the floodgates by letting them wander around Europe at will they should be rounded up, put in camps (I suggest as close to their origin as possible) and held until they can be sent home.
This should be done in conjunction with an active plan to stabilise the country of origin.

There is an old adage "people get the government there deserve" so if they are prepared to be chickens then don't be surprised when you find a fox running the roost.

I agree with that.

The problem with Cameron is, he is so weak kneed its unbelievable. He reminds me of Neville Chamberlain and his appeasement policy towards Hitler. I hated Thatcher with a passion, but she would never have allowed this BS and PC in UK to get where it is.

The majority of the refugees are in camps around Syria, and now they are leaving them because the NGOs and UNHCR don't have any resources to provide for them anymore.

A plan to stabilize the country must contain something similar as the Marshal plan after the Second World War so it will not create a power vacuum. The Arabic world can do much more, it doesn't need to be the West nor the Russians.

The situation reminds a bit about 1945, but then it was the Jews walking around and nobody wanted to have them in their countries.

This is nothing like 1945 where the majority of the migration were people either trying to go home or being expelled from their homes in the case of Polish and Czech Germans, the Syrians etc. Flooding Europe are simply running away.

The Jews already had homes in countries at peace as they were ethnic Europeans yet chose to invade the Middle East.

There are something like 5.5 million Palestinians in refugee camps since 1947 and no one says a word yet the Syrians go walk about and it is a global crisis.

No, nobody wanted the Jews to return to where they came from. They had lost their homes and never got any compensation or new homes.

There are Palestinian who fled to Europe from these refugee camps, especially from Lebanon. They are here and they have been here for awhile now.

This is not correct. Most of the refugees from WW2 never made it back to their original homes. ~12 million Germans fleeing the SU were settled in West Germany, this was actually the largest refugee crisis in history. They certainly didn’t originated there but came from Germany’s eastern provinces or were ethnic Germans. The USA’s Marshal Plan put these people back on their feet by providing money for them to rebuild. As for the Jews nobody would take them in and by that time their homes had been reposed. They had no homes to go back to.

Somewhat irrelevant as I simply stated there are 5.5million Palestinians in refugee camps that we have happily ignored since 1947.

The Palestinians fled the refugee camps in the 1980s, so saying they have been ignored is incorrect.

The current crisis, maybe use something similar as how Sweden did back in 1945, go down to Europe and bring Jews to Sweden. But this need to be coordinated with other European countries so we can avoid the trafficking of them, which is rather dangerous for them.
