This is a question Controversial Beliefs

Some mugs still think the MMR injection gives children autism (it doesn't), while others are of the belief that we're ruled by billionaire lizard people. Tell us about views outside the mainstream which people go glassy eyed if you bang on about them (Your grandad's a racist - no need to tell us, thanks)

Only asylum seekers should get benefit money
People born in the UK have won life's lottery. Just being mediocre, getting up in the morning and going through the motions will win you riches beyond the dreams of most of the people in the world.

Asylum seekers aren't so lucky. They've been born into hardship and may well have risked their lives to get here. They the lifeblood of the UK, the least we can do is give them a leg up.

"I like this!"
Yes, I'd much rather have immigrants who have had it so bad as to travel thousands of miles in search of a better life, only to be abused and ridiculed, than the 'career unemployed' who get pregnant with no thought, and expect everyone to provide them a living. Whilst not appearing on Jeremy Kyle, these people are generally the loudest at shouting "bloody asylum seekers stealing our jobs" etc.

(I generalise, I know)

P.S. The start of this message sounded sarcastic. It wasn't meant to be.

Frankly, if you've travelled 7000 miles clinging to the underside of a lorry then you've got the kind of grit this country needs.

Think about it.
That chap's spent 7000 miles hanging onto the underside of a lorry. No sueing the council because his playstation broke for him. A man with proper backbone.

I think we should have at least ten times more immigrants than we do now.
If only to induce an en-masse heart attack in all the indignant dolethieves, cripples and üntermenschen who go on about "their jobs" being "stolen" by people who are actually willing and able to turn up on time and do the job without slacking off.

And if Tory politicians complain about it, you can always say that such a move would privatise the British workforce, encourage competition, and increase the overall quality of work carried out.

That way, they couldn't object to it without looking like massive hypocrites.

Since when has looking like a massive hypocrite been a problem for politicians?
It's pretty much a job description.

You've just stated the official policy of the last three governments.

I think you mean "refugees".
An asylum seeker is someone who seeks asylum. A refugee is someone who is actually recognised as in need of international protection (technical terms here).

Someone in genuine need of international protection has a case to be made. However not all people who seek asylum actually qualify. Unfortunately, a lot of people abuse the system, claiming that they will be persecuted in their own country - when really they're just lying or exaggerating, and the truth is that they're economic migrants. Now I'm not going to get into the whole debate about economic migrants here, and whether or not the doors should be open or closed - but the point is that not all economic migrants have suffered untold horrors, and that there is a tendency to lie in order to be granted status.

(Cue leftie attacks here...)

No I definitely mean asylum seekers, you can tell by my use of the word asylum and my use of the word seekers.
