Greece warns that tens of thousands of migrants cannot be bottled up on its territory

Greece has delivered a stark warning on the eve of an emergency summit over the migration crisis, declaring that it cannot stop tens of thousands of people from crossing its northern border and travelling onwards in Europe.

Nikolaos Toskas, the Greek minister for public order, told The Telegraph that Europe was deluding itself by believing that refugees could be bottled up in his country.

The European Union will convene an emergency summit with Turkey on Monday amid signs that a deal is close. Under this proposed agreement, Turkey would take back all economic migrants presently in Greece – generally defined as all non-Syrians – in return for the EU accepting refugees directly from its camps.

    Your idea is perfect, it’s Occam’s razor! Furthermore, last time someone “invaded”my space, I was not inclined to feed them.

    afflicted with a severe hunger and fear of starving. ”

    Europe is lost. The tragedy for us is that instead of strong leadership, Canerduh has the suspected FAS useful idiot at the helm. 🙁

    Europe is trying to decide whether it wants to be strangled to death, or to be stabbed to death. Both lead to death, but one method may take longer.

      Yes!. Seems to be working for the Australians. Arrest the captain/organizer and send the rest back with just enough food, water and fuel to make it back home.

    The Shame of all this bullshit– is that nobody is going to give a damn about real refugees-
    Ever Again.
    Thanks Islam.

      No, the shame of this is that Europe is being destroyed forever — Greece is being destroyed. Refugees, real or otherwise, count for nothing compared with this.

    If Greece spent one louzy week sinking these boats —-all this shit would end.
    It is all going to come down to people killing each other—
