Didn’t last long, did it?

Germany is to start deporting Syrian refugees after reinstating EU rules under which they must claim asylum in the first member state they enter.

And Greece is pretty fucked, isn’t it?

Actually, maybe not:

And a longstanding German court ruling means the country cannot deport refugees to Greece, where the majority of Syrians first arrive, because of poor conditions for asylum-seekers there.

But presumably the German courts are just fine with the Greeks themselves having to live in those appalling conditions enforced by Germany?

  1. Germany is to start deporting Syrian refugees after reinstating EU rules under which they must claim asylum in the first member state they enter.

    Does the Dublin agreement not state only that they need to complete their asylum process in the country in which they started it, not that they need to claim asylum in the first member state they enter

  2. I’m sorry but I just can’t see Germany rounding up tens of thousands of migrants, stuffing them into rail cars and transporting them to a camp somewhere.

    Those conditions are not enforced by Germany. Not by the courts, not by the government. Any time the Greeks don’t want more German money, they can default. Which given the Greeks are still running deficits on the order of 5-10% of GDP means they would learn what austerity really looks like.

    It is too late for common sense to have hit Germany. The Germans will be a minority soon enough and their new masters will vote for the immigration policy they like. They need to accept their daughters will end up bearing Muslim children. One way or the other. And they need to learn about the Moriori.

    The Dublin Agreement really only says that a country has no responsibilities towards asylum seekers if they have already passed through a safe country. Only the first country has to process them.

    So, the second country can send them back, but it doesn’t have to. They can choose to accept the claim, if they wish.

    I have a friend who was involved in two asylum claim cases. Both arrived, presented their documents, explained why they were requesting asylum, and answered all questions. They were very quickly accepted, since they could show a valid reason for not being able to return.

    I wonder how many of the current ‘refugees’ could do the same.

  5. I’m with Bernie on this one. Once they’re there the Germans ain’t going to chuck them out. If they try and contain them outside of Germany there will be trouble, the migrants don’t want to be there, and the countries they’re in don’t want them there. The Barren Bitch of Berlin is going to have to grow a functioning pair of testicles if she wants to save Germany. I’m not sure there is the political will to do that.

    This has the potential to destroy Germany, and if Germany gets destroyed the EU goes with it.

  6. Look at Sweden – you will see that country continue to seriously fall apart over the next 5/10/20 years. I wonder if it will be quick enough for the people in the rest of Europe to firstly notice and secondly to do something about it.

    How long until the first Western European failed state?

  7. Aren’t the Greeks entitled to live in Germany and claim benefits etc. as they are already part of EU.
    Might be an interesting way of dealing with a deficit issue by shipping out unemployed people to other away countries

  8. How long until the first Western European failed state?

    I am wondering that it will be Norway. Dunno exactly why, but I get the impression that country has lost its self belief more completely than any other, oil money might be part of why.
