Just that. And what will be the result?
The end of the European Union as we know it?
This is not a crisis of Greece's making. It feels like panic in the EU loading all the responsibility onto them.
Containment. It's not confirmed to happen yet.
Can we close our borders to Greece?
But at monstrous cost to Greece that is already on its uppers.
It is closed, already.
It is unclear how any financial impact might be shared, Containment is worth paying for.
It all happened too fast. Now it is the responsibility of the EU to house the immigrants, not make them feel unwanted.
Angela Merkel openly encouraged migrants to make their way across Europe to Germany, ensuring that many thousands more would subsequently attempt the crossing from Turkey to Greece (and some die in the attempt). Is she, therefore, going to offer generous support to Greece, which has had to support incredibly high numbers of migrants?
I heard a reporter on the BBC this morning refer to Greece as a "poor gatekeeper" to Europe. I wonder if anyone bothered telling the Greeks they were meant to act as "gatekeepers" to Europe and offered them a few bob for a new gate.
Greece's misfortune to be the obvious point of entry. Combined with what Middlemarch has said about Merkel's initial reaction and subsequent volte-face.
Lufthansa could have picked up migrants directly from Syria and avoided the people having to trek to Germany. Or is this eugenics in action.
You are talking in the past tense as if the crisis is over. It will soon be Spring and the complex multi sided war is going on unabated with little international co-ordination to bring it to an end.
Anyone know what the plan is when there may be five times as many migrants heading for Europe once this winter is over?
So could British Airways who could have brought them to Britain to avoid any eugenics in action. Britain's response seems to be is to leave them there to be murdered by Assad, the rebels or Daesh.
Britain is the second biggest donor of aid to Syrian refugees after the USA.
That is right, but the £1 billion donated is a close match to the £1 billion licensed for UK bombs and missiles being provided to our glorious ally Saudi Arabia.
So Greece is expected to cage the migrants on behalf of its creditors? Not very nice. The EU stinks:vote to leave..
David Cameron didn't give as wide-ranging an invitation as Angela Merkel. I think he said that we would take in Syrians from Syria.
