Just under 60,000 refugees and migrants are stuck in Greece after their attempts to head to central and northern Europe were prevented by a cascade of border shutdowns throughout the Balkans at the start of the year.

  • Lucky Greece.

      Put them back on their rafts and let them navigate their way back home or to the gulf states.

    Just send bullets and military reinforcement.

    well, I am only too happy to see the EU shooting itself in the foot – the peasants will this to really offense, and may well be a reason to revolt – then the peasants really will be revolting

    If they aren’t willing to stay in Greece (not that Greece deserves them), where as far as I know there is no war going on, then they aren’t “refugees”. They are welfare shoppers. When is the world going to start calling the mainstream media on this bulls**t?

      They never were refugees in the true sense.

    The EU has to pour money into Greece because of all the illegal immigrants there, yet we’re being told all those immigrants are good for our economies. Ya right. Pull my finger.

    Amazing that there are idiots who still wonder why they keep coming.
