"David Cameron's decision to bring 20,000 Syrian Refugees to the UK is a bold statement. However, this announcement does raise some questions that must be addressed by the Prime Minister. With gross UK immigration hitting 630,000 last year, the number of people deciding to settle in the UK is the number one concern of the British people. The thinking behind a major policy statement like this needs to be transparent so that the British people can fully understand the implications of what is being done in their name.
"The Prime Minister must consider these points:
1) There are 1.8 million people in the UK on the social housing list. How does the Prime Minister determine who gets priority over whom? Will Syrian Refugees be considered to be a priority over other families on the waiting list?
2) 9,000 British Servicemen are currently homeless in the UK. After considering housing Syrian Refugees, will the Prime Minister consider housing the 9,000 men and women who have fought for this nation?
3) Will each refugee within the 20,000 limit have the ability to bring families over with them and will this 20,000 number be an extension on top of the 30,000 Asylum applications made to the UK per year?
4) Will the Prime Minister consider acting upon those economic migrants applying for asylum as well?
"This is a grand statement from the Tory Leader but the job of the Prime Minister is not only to have a heart, but to have a head too.”
