The concerns of a large number of UK inhabitants, and no doubt shared by similar numbers of German citizens and in other EU nations, is whether or not the arrival of so many young and fit Syrians presents a security problem. After all, we do not know the backgrounds or political leanings of these people, nor do we know whether any of them (or indeed how many) are ISIL members intent on infiltrating our countries to render death and mayhem. We are righ to be concerned but can the government offer the asurance that we will be safe? We simply don't know!
Similarly, with Cameron's well-intended back-track of policy this morning, there has been no mention of whom will provide housing for several thousand new arrivals, or where they will go or who will pay for their keep. With local authorities being forced to cut their budgets to the limits, where will this money come from? People are also concerned about an already overstretched NHS that is near breaking point and how this will ever be able to cope with an influx of more people demanding medical facilities. Patients that have already spent considerable periods of time waiting for essential surgical treatment will be wondering whether this is going to extend their waiting times for vital operations.
These are all very genuine concerns that need to be addressed, but at the moment there are no indications that anyone is willing to answer.

I believe this is worth reading.
This child's death was tragic but it was not our fault
