Meanwhile, cuts in social care for the elderly are causing soaring deaths.

Daily Mail: Just 34,000 migrants out of 1.2million to arrive in Germany in the last two years have found work, government reveals

Of course, if we did not finance radical Islam to replace dictators like Gaddafi, Assad and an elected Egyptian President, to replace it with something even worse and allowing ISIS to take Iraq after taking out Saddam, we could instead use foreign aid to encourage secular education and literacy in these countries so that the huge number of illiterate individuals being radicalised can instead have the ability to think for themselves and maybe lead normal lives and be prosperous in their homelands, building a middle class that can construct the civil society that can be the only replacement for dictatorship, that is simply a virus that fills the void? Meanwhile, Europe has a major housing crisis cause by mass migration whilst social welfare is shifted from our most vulnerable citizens.

The Christmas award for longest sentence , while at the same time ironically berating those from other countries for their lack of education goes to .... (opens gold envelope) ...Libby!😉

Couldn't resist that. Even "liebour"'s party political broadcasts aren't that long.

A long sentence indeed, but it lacks a long word. 'Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious' could be inserted anywhere in it without anyone thinking it odd.

The point is that the cost of educating them in their own country would be vastly cheaper than giving them welfare here. It would also be cheaper than raining bombs on them and many times more humane. It would also help us with our housing crisis alongside the beneficial effects to everybody (except the elite) from reducing taxes and government debt over here for all the bloody wars.

You mentioned Gaddafi. So Killary Klinton just HAD to bomb Libya because of its lack of democracy and education?

She bombed Gaddafi because he was setting up an independent system that was competing with the Anglo-American's attempts to dominate Africa. In part, their partnerships with China to extract oil, but also attempts to sort out a gold backed African monetary system, but the west even managed to steal his gold. But there was a lot going on and the headlines are a smokescreen. We will find out the real reason, 80yrs after the event, once the papers are declassified after all those involved are dead. That is the wonderful thing about Wikileaks, it is giving us real time access to leaks that usually take a couple generations to be exposed.

Of course, I was not referring to what drove the wars, but how one would avoid jihadism and the flooding of Europe with literally millions of illiterate people who will overwhelm our ability to home and care for our own and them. That instead of bombing them we could have funded education, etc. because an educated population would clearly move on balance towards enterprise rather than such destructive activities. Of course, those behind the military do not want these people literate and productive for they may be a threat to their dominance.

The whole thing is a screw mess that is no good for anybody.

Much truth in what you say @5. @6, the US military screwballs have given us jihadism directly by supporting the folks who gave us 9/11, no explanation in terms of level of education is necessary. Much of this is facilitated by the western propaganda machine known as the media, owned like everything else by the plutocrats.
