@andypandy What do you think ‘the limit’ has been calculated as being? I work in Wigan supporting asylum seekers (quick google should throw up what I do etc). In Greater Manchester, the figure is 1 per 200. We don’t quite reach that figure in Wigan (not enough cheap housing stock) but we have a very well cohessed community. This does place demands on services, but we manage, helped massively by community/voluntary organisations. I believe the UK can take many more (the issue being the uneven dispersal across the UK to areas of cheap housing whose local authorities are possible already amongst the most stretched).

Your point about violent intervention is utter claptrap. Not only does it rarely work, but most asylum seekers in the UK are not coming from typical war zones. These people usually flood into neighbouring countries in their millions (Jordan, Turkey, Pakistan, Lebanon, Iran).
