    ^ 20 y/o article, I should probably check that before reading.
  2. This is called debating in bad faith. Risking...

    This is called debating in bad faith. Risking twisting your ankle is not the same as risking drowning.



    Ok, benefit of the doubt. Do you not think this is insane? The idea is apparently to stop...
  3. There's an urban myth that the entire world's...

    There's an urban myth that the entire world's population can fit on the Isle of Wight. I hope that's based on fact.
  4. Yeah, asking what motivates these guys risking...

    Yeah, asking what motivates these guys risking their life to cross the French German border.



    So you think that simply wanting to be here means we are obliged to let them be here? That once...
  5. I mean this is common ground. I agree here. ...

    I mean this is common ground. I agree here.

    But you still don't seem to appreciate where I'm coming from when I point out these people are fleeing France. That's the only word I can think to use...
  6. My point is that according to your interpretation...

    My point is that according to your interpretation of asylum law, there is no mechanism in place to protect a single country such as the UK from being legally obliged to accept the entire population...
  7. I never suggested they do. But in principle, they...

    I never suggested they do. But in principle, they can.



    How much bigger are these countries compared to the UK? Just curious.

    Anyway, good one, you said "haven't acted like cunts" when...
  8. About privilege. Wealthy people get better...

    About privilege.


    Wealthy people get better healthcare than I do, better education, better legal representation, better access to credit, I am discriminated against for being poor in many aspects...
  9. Frankly I find the concept of being proud of your...

    Frankly I find the concept of being proud of your skin colour to be somewhat ludicrous. I'm not proud of having brown eyes. I'm not proud of being right handed. I'm not even proud of my city of...
  10. That historical Persian city of Calais. Is...

    That historical Persian city of Calais.

    Is the UK the only place in the world where they can avoid persecution? Of course not.

    Why should people in Iran be able to pick the UK and be allowed...
  11. btw, Ukrainians don't come here by flimsy boat...

    btw, Ukrainians don't come here by flimsy boat because they are actually asylum seekers, not economic migrants. Therefore they are not motivated to risk their lives to move from France to the UK...
  12. Or put pressure on France to not treat migrants...

    Or put pressure on France to not treat migrants like shit. I love how the onus is on the UK and not France.

    If we open up more ways to get here, more migrants attempt to come here. Eventually we...
  13. Sure, our policy of being a much, much more...

    Sure, our policy of being a much, much more welcoming place for asylum seekers than France, coupled with being an island, encourages people to risk their lives by getting on flimsy boats.

    You...
  14. Don't bother then. I'm not bothering to read your...

    Don't bother then. I'm not bothering to read your posts. I already told you that I wasn't all that interested in law, I was concerned about motivation, yet you're writing essays on asylum law in an...
  15. We're all part of the problem because we can't...

    We're all part of the problem because we can't agree on how to eradicate racism. I would like to completely disregard skin colour, but you won't let me. You instead insist I educate myself. I want to...
  16. You appear to be arguing that all a person has to...

    You appear to be arguing that all a person has to do is declare themself an asylum seeker and they are no longer subject to UK border control laws.

    What's the point of border control if people...
  17. All those people who made anti-Trump noise need...

    All those people who made anti-Trump noise need to keep making noise. Why aren't they? Because they're not anti-racists. They're anti-capitalists.

    Getting rid of Trump didn't solve anything, did...
  18. Chortle. ^ Here's why you're missing the...

    Chortle.



    ^ Here's why you're missing the point. Because of history, you identify someone by the colour of their skin and designate them with the "oppressed" tag. And in the same post you...
  19. You're completely missing the point poop. I'm not...

    You're completely missing the point poop. I'm not discussing what the law says. I'm discussing the motivation of someone who risks their life, and often that of their wife and children, to flee...
  20. We view racism differently because we come from...

    We view racism differently because we come from different countries with very different attitudes towards this matter. Racism here is a daily issue for some people, but it's not driving policy here. ...
  21. The tone of your post was highly sarcastic, at...

    The tone of your post was highly sarcastic, at least it came across that way to me.
  22. This last bit, "breaking international law", this...

    This last bit, "breaking international law", this seems tenuous. I don't anticipate there being any specific international law that refers to the relationship between the UK and the EU. Breaking...
  23. Someone else who fled that hellhole known as...

    Someone else who fled that hellhole known as France eh? Clearly this guy can't be sent back to Iran, and there's absolutely no reason to send him to Rwanda. And I'm not entirely sure why we'd want to...
  24. I mean maybe I'm wrong, maybe it's perfectly fine...

    I mean maybe I'm wrong, maybe it's perfectly fine and I'm just being silly. It's just the context in which it's used, when it's coming from people who oppose racism, against people they perceive to...
  25. I think it's a distasteful word for anyone to use...

    I think it's a distasteful word for anyone to use to describe a white person who is flushed in the face, especially if it's coming from someone who is attempting to oppose racism.
