Default Would you take in one or more Syrians to your home?

Time to shit or get off the pot now m8s. Who here would do this?

Put me down for a big fat No btw.
If a programme was put in place by the government whereby you could take in one or more Syrians claiming refugee status to your home would you?

Yes or No.

I have a few spare rooms, I've thought about this a bit and yes I would if I had full access to their backgrounds and if they had a child the same age as my daughter. I think it would be a wonderful example for her of how good she has it.

Not a hope.

I wouldn't leave any stranger live in my gaff, I don't see why I should treat someone differently just because they are a Muslim or a refugee or whatever.

Do you really think it would be because they are muslims?

I don't propose to do it, I propose whoever has selected my house for them to live in does it.

Full access to their backgrounds?

Like a reference from their previous landlord or what?
