    You couldn't just start out with inviting 50,000 refugees, for starters? You had to invite a million. And even after that debacle, Merkel still did not want to curb her immigration impulses.

    It is unexplainable to me, except for some quirky explanation like the above.

    The low birthrate and falling number of working age people in Germany might have something to do with it? They needed more workers to pay their pensions, and once they started letting them in, they couldn't easily stop. I thought Cameron's plan to take refugees directly from the camps was much better than letting them come across the border uncontrolled.

    Merc is a political vampire.

    It's going to take a stake through her atheist heart to get her out of government.
