The migrant crisis engulfing Europe is likely to last for 20 years, the government minister in charge of Britain’s international response warned on Thursday.
Justine Greening, the Secretary of State for the Department for International Development, said the humanitarian crisis in Syria was such that many refugees would be unlikely to return home in two decades.
It came as the European Union predicted that the worst of the crisis is yet to come, with three million people arriving by the end of 2017. It said the economic boost many had hoped for is likely to be negligible.
A negligible economic boost?
Mass immigration means a cheap labour pool that’s all, follow the money.
