In Whitehall, there is deep irritation at the attempt by Germany to present Britain as a country which does not take its fair share of asylum seekers. In the 2000s, Britain consistently processed more claims than Germany – including 103,081 in 2002 alone. Indeed, there were so many applications that the system run by the last Labour Government almost collapsed under the strain. Around 3,000 migrants are currently waiting at Keleti station in Budapest with many camping outside the main entrance after being told they could not board trains to Germany without valid documents The migrants have taken cover in the underground passage near to the station as they await their fate Between 2006 and 2010, despite numbers in the UK beginning to fall, we still accepted almost 10,000 more claimants over the five-year period than the German authorities. It's also a fact that numbers in the UK are again beginning to rise. Some 32,344 adults and their dependants applied in 2014, the highest annual number since 2004. In the first quarter of 2015, the figure was 7,435. RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next We can’t cope with this tide!
