Is public support for refugees in the UK dropping? - BBC News
A new poll indicates that support in Britain for taking in more refugees may be sliding. [...] bc people can't personalise the facts and figures. talk is only about numbers. not individual stories! the voices of refugees are not heard proportionately to what is written about "the crisis." ... rather than a task to do because the west has meddled in the middle east since WW1 in its own interest. the west supported the fall of lybian leader gaddafi, the west supported a regime change in egypt. the west looked away in Syria.

"After Me, The Jihad," Gaddafi Tried To Warn The West, But Nobody Listened | Zero Hedge
Before the French Revolution and its Reign of Terror, Louis XV predicted, “After me, the Deluge.” Before being overthrown, Libya’s secular dictator tried to warn the West of a new Reign of Terror, essentially foretelling, “After me, the Jihad.” This was disclosed with the recent release of phone conversations from early 2011 between Muammar Gaddafi and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

Pigs to peerages: Lord Ashcroft’s act of revenge shows British politics at its venal worst | Simon Jenkins | Comment is free | The Guardian
Cameron’s use of the House of Lords to reward aides, cronies and donors might leave even Tony Blair astonished. Why not just sell off titles to fund political parties? [ ie also Michelle Mone, supporter of the No Campaign, got peerage and job at DWP as start-up czar; getting unemployed people to start businesses (self-employment). ] //&! Billionaire Tory donor alleges Cameron conspired to mislead public before 2010 election over knowledge of Ashcroft’s non-dom status - bit.ly/1KrdcET - accepting donations from tax avoiders/evaders is best practise nowadays. //&! So Cameron was young and reckless. Lucky he wasn’t young, reckless and poor - bit.ly/1Oqc8Fg //&! How do you deal with a story like #piggate? A spin doctor’s view - bit.ly/1QvIiNl //&! Live Feed Day 2 - bit.ly/1Ktcyqq - "White House [thinks] it had been “fucked over” on both Libya & Syria." Cameron not getting the votes for full military intervention. [...] Gaddafi’s weapons moved south, arming Boko Haram [in Nigeria].
