By BI: Where are all the Syrians? Do you see any in the photos here?
Newly-arrived Muslim freeloaders are being taken on ‘jollies’ paid for by £100,000 of public money to zoos, theme parks and even the beach in an attempt to help them ‘integrate’ into British life, it has emerged. Since 2009, a refugee support group has been treating dozens of Muslim migrants to days out at Thorpe Park, Whipsnade Zoo, the London Eye, Brighton beach, and pricey resorts.
UK Daily Mail The revelation was met with dismay by campaigners, with on MP saying: ‘Some of my constituents can’t afford to take their children to some of these places.’
Tory MP Andrew Bridgen told The Sun that those who played the Lottery would be ‘disappointed if it paid for asylum-seekers’ jollies.’ Among the other jaunts that asylum-seekers enjoyed courtesy of The Hillingdon Refugee Support Group were trips to the British Museum, the Cutty Sark and week-long adventure holidays.
The latter saw 16 to 21-year-olds who arrived ‘unaccompanied’ to the UK enjoy a week of climbing and canoeing paid for by the charity, which received £399,545 from the Big Lottery Fund in March.
Photos of Muslim invaders on other days out to the Tower of London, which costs an adult £22 to visit, and Surrey’s Thorpe Park (up to £49.99) also accompanied the support group’s newsletters. In one, after a visit to the £500-a-night Grenville House Outdoor Education Centre in Brixham, Devon, the charity wrote ‘everyone enjoyed the trip… we shall certainly be looking to visit next year.’
The trip to Whipsnade was described as a ‘summertime favourite’ that migrants ‘always enjoy’, while ‘good fun was had by all’ at a day out to an ice rink. However, Steven George-Hilley, of the Parliament Street think-tank, said the ‘jollies’ made ‘Britain look more like Butlins’.
On its website, the Hillingdon Refugee Support Group, which also receives funding from the Hillingdon Community Trust charity, says the trips are designed to ‘build confidence’ for Muslim economic opportunists and ‘enable their integration pipe dream into British society’.
A spokeswoman for the Big Lottery Fund confirmed that the refugee support group was awarded £399,545 and that £91,372 had been paid out to date. She added: ‘The funding is for young Muslims (many of whom lie about their ages) without families who have recently arrived as alleged refugees.
Three more charter flights arrived in the UK this week to help fulfil David Cameron’s promise to help Syrian refugees, which he has described as ‘our moral duty’. This latest batch means the Government has met its target of resettling 1,000 Syrians in Britain by Christmas. (WHAT Syrians?)
On the island of Bute, off the West of Scotland, 15 families have arrived, but this has created tensions. Islanders are divided between those who’ve welcomed the migrants and those who angrily accuse the London government and the local Argyll And Bute Council of keeping quiet about the newcomers until they turned up in their midst.
