Or yours.
Sturgeon is taking the piss, and it's getting boring.


Well I must be taking a piss as well! The Unionist way of dealing with child refugees is at best disgusting.

What on earth does 'the Unionist way of dealing with child refugees' mean?

Cheers.
As for 'unionist parties' though... they do have a spectrum of ideas on immigration and how to deal with child refugees.
It's a very unfortunate term that's polluting Scottish politics right now.
We can do without it, polarising, unhelpful, dishonest.
Sturgeon says she'll take one in, magic, that's only 349 to house;)
Oh Yvette Cooper too, so that makes it 348.
Let's not hold our breath though:(

Forgive me if I'm wrong, spoke to Eilidh Whiteford a couple of weeks ago and I had thought the intention was that Scotland would take them all of the children. To save children is never unhelpful imo and I know that is your opinion as well.

No, saving children isn't unhelpful, that would be an odd thing to think.
If you spoke to an MP and got it from them that the 350 are coming to Scotland then it must be true.
Haven't read that one though.
Is there an article or something saying so?

No that was just in conversation at a music for kids thing I was involved with. But will have a look for something more definite later.

This seems to be article that best describes it, the 350 was supposed to be the minimum and many thought and hoped that nearer 3,000 parentless/unaccompanied children would be taken to these shores.

The first duty of the government of any country to its people is to protect its borders. It is what makes a country a country.

No-one knows who these angry young migrants actually are. Child refugees? The ones I saw were angry single men in their twenties and thirties demanding access to the UK. Somehow they were counted as "children" because they didn't have families with them - which means we can be flexible about their age until they are into their thirties (ie. can still call them "children"). And they were not refugees in England or Scotland either. They were groups of mostly passportless migrants in (mostly) France and in various places across Europe.

The vast majority of refugees fleeing from Syria are a result of US and UK deliberate destabilisation of Syria. Those refugees have been created as a direct result of our nurture, financing and logistical support of the Proxy Armies of Al Quaida, ISIS, Jabhat al-Nusra and Al Nusra Front headcases. Most of the Syrian refugees are in camps in Jordan, Turkey and Lebanon. They would like - ASAP - to go back to their homeland, homes and farms as soon as British and US-backed ISIS murderers stop bombing their homes and cutting their children's heads off.

Places like "The Jungle" were simply the logical end-point and dumping ground of people traffickers who could not get their charges across the last twenty miles of The English Channel because they had no legal documentation for them and they had no right of entry. Simple. Lily Allen felt so guilty about it that she cried for the TV cameras. It was so sad. I don't feel sad or guilty.

yes I'm sure that's likely to be 100% true.
