    Morning Frank

    Would you ban genuine refugees too?

    If they had a history of sexual assaults, of course.

    But most of those in Germany are economic migrants, not refugees.

    Are they?

    How would you check?

    In order:

    Yes they are.

    Difficult, I agree. Perhaps a clear explanation of the standards of behaviour expected is needed, given to each, with the warning that breaking this (one could call it a) contract would lead to immediate expulsion.

    The alternative, I fear, will be vigilante style attacks on immigrants in general.

    Because elements in our society will use this for political gain
    I'd wax lyrical on that theme but I'm a tad busy just now

    No, events such as Cologne, Cambridge and (we now learn) several other places make the situation far worse.

    What happened in Cambridge?

    I'm a bit behind what with working again.

    A very concerning mass assault, but let's not pretend that everything is all civilised and fine and dandy with the behaviour of indigenous European males.
    There are 10 rapes an hour in the UK and tens of thousands of sexual assaults and 90% of perpetrators are known to their victims.

    Is anyone pretending that?

    Could be an argument against introducing into the country a large number of young men who appear not to be able to keep it zipped!

    According to this... where ethnicity is known, ethnic minorities constitute 23% of rape crisis services users...

    • Where ethnicity is known, 23% of Rape Crisis services users were black or minority ethnic
