QUOTE (Humza Yousaf, SNP Minister for Europe @ 13th September, 2015)
We welcome Ireland’s decision to opt into President Juncker’s expanded EU-wide relocation scheme and call on the Prime Minister to follow the Irish example and also opt in to help our neighbours and European partners cope with this humanitarian crisis. The UK has a moral obligation to help some of the most vulnerable people that are coming to Europe seeking protection. We cannot turn our back on innocent men, women and children.

Nothing to do with the upcoming EU referendum.

It highlights a major difference between Scottish and British Government policy regarding cooperation with the EU on a defining political situation not only for the Union but also the UK's place and role within it.

The two Governments both advocate a Yes vote to remain, but this disagreement reveals the serious difficulty that the UK Gov can have with EU Politics and I also think it adds to the overall debate.

Would the SG be as welcoming if Cameron turns around and says OK take take as many as you want, but it comes out of your block grant. Would the SNP welcome this responsibility if that also came with the responsibility to pay for it, what budgets will be cut or taxes raised to fund it. You also have the knock on effect of people who are affected by taxes or cuts voting for someone else. you see as a YES voter i welcome the SG having this responsibility because i believe if you want to talk the talk you better be able to walk the walk as well.

The SG policy is slightly irregular, because as well as stipulating it will take precisely 10% of the UK influx it is arguing that the UK should be opting into the EU plan, which would greatly increase the 10% amount currently expected.

I think that the answer to your initial question is YES, going by what the Minister had to say, which I welcome and you don't, going by everything that you're saying. biggrin.gif

No i dont welcome it, for one the money is far better better spent at source, and another opening borders will create a rush and cause more deaths as people attempt the crossing. There has been many more childrens deaths since Alan Kurdis picture was seen around the world but there has hardly been any news about it. If the SNP want this responsibility then the people more likely to have new 'guests' are the ones in poorer neighbouhoods where their support seems to be gaining, with power comes responsibility and their focus should be on the people here. So give us the powers and let them use them, it will stop all this politicking crap and force them to put up or shut up...

In the manner of media and political exploitation of the "hand wring and heart rendering" use of images for cheap manipulation of excessive artificial emotional imagery, I would like to make the following points. Whereas the deliberate image of a toddler being taken from the water dead, it was a calculated use of death to re-enforce a desired opinion. There was little that was not journalistic disrespect for the dead. Up till now (2015) 247 have died on Australian beaches and rivers.

Three toddlers were killed in accidents in their own drive ways this last month or so. Australia for some reason unbeknown to any is accepting 12000 Syrians on top of what it already took and is already taking. There is talk in circles beyond the reach of input or advise of hosting the influx on small rural communities and even individual households. (this has already occurred in Italy where vacant houses of jailed persons have been given out to those arriving in Italy). Nowhere will the politicians, anxious only for kudos at the future ballot box, ever take into account the hopes and desires of the overruled voiceless minions that make up their constituencies. And as far as the dictators in Brussels are concerned; be told be very told.

So sad.
Almost a happy/safe family then tragedy.

"A three-year-old refugee from Iraq died at a welcoming party shortly after he arrived in Germany, having undertaken a 3,000 mile journey across Europe.

The boy, who has not been named, was playing on rope hanging between two large flower pots.

One of the pots fell over as he played, crushing him.

He was attending the party with his parents and nine-year-old brother in the town of Eschweiler, in the west of the country.

The party was organised by local residents and aid groups for newly-arrived refugees. The boy and his family had arrived in Germany just four weeks earlier, after having made the long and difficult journey from Iraq."

This one didn't make it.

A four-year-old Syrian girl's body washed up on a beach in western Turkey on Friday, state media said, just weeks after images of drowned Syrian toddler Aylan Kurdi shook the world.

The yet-to-be identified girl was found lifeless on a beach in the Aegean town of Cesme in Izmir province after a boat carrying 15 Syrians to the Greek island of Chios sank, the official Anatolia news agency said.

It said the Turkish coast guard rescued the remaining 14 Syrians, including eight children, from the inflatable boat. The girl appeared to be the only casualty.

Telling tales of woeful tragedy does no one any good or service. Thousands more die in Africa from starvation and disease on a daily basis.

If it was a vote to join the EU, the result would be a resounding No.

He may be right, but let's hope we answer the actual question in a similarly emphatic manner!

'Yes, please.'

Then maybe we'll see the back of him too.
