has been forced by the government, via the courts, to accept the boat people as guests.
As many of the boat people have lived for long time in filthy camps in France, they are used to them! So we should not deprive them of the environment, they are used to!

Wider issue is that until processed through the Asylum system these people are not allowed to work/claim benefits nor Rent any property.

these kind of things are often another example of the hypocrisy of human beings. There are many examples of people who will post and say things online about human rights etc, but it seems that a lot of these people are only ok if its dumped in someone elses area. Bring it to their own backyard, and its a totally different story. Not just the asylum seekers, but things like the travellers, the races/relgiions that could be a problem, the ex criminals being housed, the druggies. It seems they all have to live somewhere, but so long as its somewhere else, thats ok. Not many will admit to not wanting them anywhere near them, but a lot are thinking it, whilst saying different.
