Because he has a specific agenda, and is motivated to mock and disrespect anyone with whom he disagrees.

Mate. Are you watching the news?

They are refusing to be fingerprinted in Hungary and instead chancing it with yet more people traffickers.

Would you take their word on it?

Because tbf, if someone leaves a place with just the clothes on their back after their village has been wiped out, chances of authorities verifying background checks on people isn't really feasible.

And if you would accept a reference from a landlord then surely that could be easily forged, right?

Even if they completed all these imaginary background checks Spanky is on about I think it would still be a no from me. I'd say they wouldn't be too happy about sharing a couch with a dog.

Full access to their backgrounds.



That's a classic.
Don't automatically attribute your own base instincts to others Gary. I wouldn't want access to their backgrounds just some basic checks.

A lot of them are yes, but a lot of them are also making their way to the camps and allowing themselves to be processed properly. Don't believe everything you see on "the news".

He has no agenda whatsoever; he is just bored and hoping the ball. Lamps has been doing it for over a decade. Pick a topic people feel strongly about and argue against it.

As an answer to the poll; I have space and I would take people in, but I would only take in a family or the elderly. Those 24 year taxi drivers should be fighting Isis.

Yes. It would be challenging no doubt, but doable.

I don't think it will happen though.
