Sturgeon Plays Politics with Syrian Refugee's, Solution Settle Migrants in Hungary and Poland

Politics / Immigration Sep 05, 2015 - 01:53 AM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

Nicola Sturgeon, leader of the Scottish Nationalists has jumped on board the criticise David Cameron bandwagon for not doing enough towards the Syrian refugee crisis and is now demanding that many more tens if not hundreds of thousands of refugees be housed in mostly England whilst announcing Scotland is willing to take in 1000 refugees as a first step.


"As first minister of Scotland I pledge that I will ensure that Scotland does everything possible to help this refugee crisis.

"I will be far from the only person reduced to tears last night at the picture of a little boy washed up on a beach. That wee boy has touched our hearts.

"But his is not an isolated tragedy. He and thousands like him whose lives are at risk is not somebody else’s responsibility; they are the responsibility of all of us.

"So, yes, I am angry, very angry, at the ‘walk on by on the other side’ approach of the UK government. I implore David Cameron to change his position and change it today. And I pledge as first minister of this country that we stand ready to help offer sanctuary to refugees who need our help."

However, just as the economic case for an Independent Scotland in the year following the independence referendum has been shown to be delusional SNP propaganda, then so is Sturgeons demands for England to open the flood gates in regards to the european migration crisis.

Crude Oil Price Forecast 2015 and 2016

Oil Price Crash and SNP Independent Scotland

Nothing illustrates the magnitude of the potential catastrophe that was the SNP's economic programme for an Independent Scotland (I.S.) than its reliance on an oil price well NORTH of $120 so as to turn Scotland into the promised land of milk and honey, the picture being painted was of an Independant Scotland (I.S.) of a paradise on earth, not that far removed from reality then that which the Syrian I.S. paints for the worlds gullible muslims that crave a fast track to paradise.

With every dip in the oil price SNP propaganda responded with the price drop being just temporary instead as we have seen a year on the economic collapse of an Independent Scotland would have been spectacular even worse then that of Bankrupt Greece. The SNP's Economic Baldrick-esk Master Plan for an Independent Scotland that was wholly based on reaping huge rewards from North Sea oil export tax revenues where SNP propaganda had convinced many Scots to Vote to effectively commit economic and social suicide by voting in last Septembers referendum that came close to achieving the catastrophe on the basis of propaganda implying upwards of £9 billion in North Sea oil tax revenues that would be raised to finance Scotland's budgetary black hole, which in the fever pitch of the campaign had reached the heights of £11 billion so as to exaggerate the degree to which Scotland could prosper and fill the void left by the withdrawal of the English subsidy that currently amounts to £9 billion per year.

Even the Governor of the Bank of England stepped in at the start of this year by warning "the Scottish economy was heading for a “negative shock”.

The problem with SNP economic propaganda is that it was based on a oil price being well NORTH of $100 per barrel, however a sub $50 oil price does not just mean that an Independent Scotland would have made half the forecast tax revenues i.e. £3.5 to £5 billion, instead the reality is that an Independant Scotland today would be forced to bear COSTS in support of a collapsing oil industry, just as the UK government has stepped in to support the Scottish oil industry to the tune of £1.5 billion. So an Independant Scotland would today have a negative cash flow from North Sea oil of about -£1.5 billion a year and it is this that illustrates the magnitude of the catastrophe that Scotland only just missed by a whisker if they had fallen for SNP nationalist propaganda.

Disparity in Population Density

Sturgeon In the wake of Germany's announcement to take upto 800,000 refugees this year has put added pressure on David Cameron and the UK government to change their stance on refugee migration that continues relentlessly as demonstrated by coverage on the broadcast press.

David Cameron in response has already signaled he is caving into the pressure by now preparing to settle several tens of thousands of refugees into mostly England.

However, the growing hysteria in the mainstream press and blogosfear masks the fact that the population density of England is several orders of magnitude greater than any other major european nation as the table below illustrates based on House of Commons, UK and EU statistical agencies data.

  Population Density / sq km New Migrants to Match England's Density
England 419  
Holland 408 .45mill
Belgium 370 1.5mill
Wales 258 1.8mill
Germany 226 68.8mill
Italy 205 62.6mill
Poland 130 85.6mill
Portugal 116 27.4mill
Hungary 108 28.8mill
France 105 197mill
Spain 94 161mill
Romania 89 74mill
Greece 82 44.3mill
Scotland 67 32.5mill
Bulgaria 66 38.8mill

What stands out from the table is the overwhelming disparity in capacity to accommodate migrants, especially for depopulated eastern european nations many of whom are demonstrating ZERO inclination to offer asylum to refugees despite having exported many millions of their own people westwards. For instance Poland would need to experience an influx of 85 million migrants to equal the population density of England.

Meanwhile the finger wagging Germans could allow 68 million migrants to settle in Germany and still be less densely populated than England. Whilst France would need to increase its population by near 200 million! Even a constantly bleating Greece would require a 44 million jump in its population to equal the state of over crowding in England.

Whilst Nicola Sturgeons Scotland, rather than letting in 1,000 refugees would need to let in 32.5million migrants, increasing the population six fold for Scotland to equal the population density of England, which once more shatters SNP propaganda that do not match reality.

Therefore the migration crisis debate needs to seriously take into account the huge disparity in population density that has brought public services such as health, housing and education in many areas of southern England to the brink of collapse, something that works in the interests of Scottish nationalists whose primary objective is to sow chaos throughout the UK so that they can convince ordinary Scots that they are better off being Independent from an over populated collapsing UK.

The obvious solution to the migration crisis is for the migrants to be settled in the depopulated eastern Europe with Hungry being a good starting point as it is a primary transit route and could easily accommodate several tens of millions before reaching the same level of population density as England and then there is the mega empty space called Poland that could take 85 million and still not be as densely populated as England. For instance 4 million Poles have recently migrated westwards therefore Poland could easily be repopulated by the 4 million Syrian refugees.

Saudi Arabia and the Illusion of the Muslim Brotherhood

Germany, a christian nation is going to let in an estimated 800,000 muslims whilst the home of Islam, Saudi Arabia is deaf, dumb and blind to the suffering of fellow MUSLIMS and thus will not let a single refugee cross its borders. How can Saudi Arabia be an Islamic country when it does not care for the lives of fellow muslims? The answer is it is not, instead Saudi Arabia has shown itself to be nothing other than being run by a crime family that uses Islam as a tool to perpetuate control over the worlds brainwashed muslim masses to slavishly utilise to its advantage.

It's time for the worlds brainwashed muslims to take the red pill and wake up!
