“This phenomenon is partly a consequence of the “Arab Spring”, which has seen thousands of persons escaping from repression, social unrest, or even civil war” so writes the EESC.

The truth is different: Acc. to the UNHCR, June 2012 , the UK´s asylum seekers come from: Iran (2,477); Pakistan (2,418); Sri Lanka (1,756); Afghanistan (1,271); Eritrea (797), China (778); Nigeria (732); Libya (722); Sudan (688) and Bangladesh (616).

What is not told is that citizenships are being quickly bestowed on these immigrants - wherupon they are “europeans” - in Denmark called “new-Danes” - although they do not speak comprehensible Danish or know Danmarks-demografianything about Danish culture which they despise.
