The UK and PM Cameron have particularly been unwelcome to the idea of helping refugees from Syria and other countries, all of whom are currently flooding into the EU. Most of these refugees try to get to Germany, but plenty are happy just to get into safety somewhere. Germany did sound like a good idea, because it is a great country and the people there are truly trying to help. On their way the refugees go through many countries and some of them, like Serbia, have a very sympathetic approach and help them on their way through. Others, like Hungary, build walls. The UK does not need walls, the channel is there to hinder any hapless people from entering our country, but why did all these people start their exodus and why do they go to Europe and not to their fellow Muslims?
First of all, these fellow Muslims did kick them out, second of all, they openly declared they are not accepting anybody – similar to the initial stance the UK had. Unfortunately for most, people die who do not go on the exodus and people die during the mass migration, the sorrow is immense and the sights are getting more horrible by the day. These people need to be helped and there is only one thing all of us can do here, namely help. Solutions are scarce, but for now implemented is anything that is available, considered even the less immediate solutions.
One Egyptian billionaire, Naguib Sawiris, offered to purchase an island from Greece or anybody who offers a viable place, in order to settle these people there even temporarily. Ideas come up, where so called ghost villages and towns, such as Aragon in Spain, abandoned places that were either never rebuilt or simply have lost most of their inhabitants due to inner migrations, be populated by the newly arrived families, at least for the time being until a global solution can be facilitated. There are such places even in the UK, for instance Martinsthorpe in Rutland, North Rona, which is an abandoned Scottish Island, Samson, which is an island of the Isles of Scilly or the military training villages in Norfolk, which used to be regular villages until the WWII.
