The first year of the scheme will be funded with money from the overseas aid budget and the Government has already allocated £129 million to help local authorities with costs for the remaining years.

But it is unclear where the rest of the £589 million will come from.

    And in the meantime the Arab Gulf States refuse to take in any.

      They know better.

    Just look at that poor little boy.
    Picture him with a hot dog in his mouth and a bomb around his waist.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Who cares? It’s other people’s money. This is the country they want.

      Europe’s fate was sealed the moment the Communist Manifesto hit the streets.

      • Hard Little Machine

        Every generation, occasionally every other generation Europe experiments with a new kind of fascist totalitarian genocidal bloodletting. They had the crusades, the 30 years war, anarchism, Marxism, fascism, Communism and now Islamism. It really doesn’t matter what it is as long as they have a chance of exploding in flames and various war crimes

        • Clausewitz

          I wouldn’t include the Crusades in that list. That was just a natural reaction to Muslim expansion, despite what the delusional leftist reconstructionist may think.

            They managed to mass murder more Jews than anyone else.

    We certainly owe it to all of them because we are white and in my case I am even more guilty of everything because I am a white cisgender able-bodied male!

    • Shebel

      So, you obviously have nothing in common with Justin.

    • I am so proud of you!

      • Liberal Progressive

        I am so proud of myself to publicly admit my inherent evilness by birth to while male privilege.

  • This is madness.

      The Scottish Police will be knocking on your door shortly.

  • Shebel

    Pretty soon being WHITE in the Western World will be like —
    being an ALBINO in Africa.

    • Alain

      I think that point has already been reached.

  • moraywatson

    More like a billion pounds every year, for ever. Plus another billion pounds per year for each generation of progeny. If you must assuage your liberal guilt trip, don’t import this culture into our society, instead make it safe for them to stay close to home, with customs they do not offend.

    “But it is unclear where the rest of the £589 million will come from.”

    The magic money tree, just like every other expenditure.

    • Alain

      I have had no success in locating a source of those money trees. I am still looking since I really would like to plant some on my farm.
