    In an interview Dominik Tarczynski was questioned by the BBC host as to why Poland was not honoring an agreement by the EU to take in their quota of “refugees”. Tarczynski reminded his host of how democracy works and that leaders should respect voters.

    “Well, basically because people who voted for us they said no,” Tarczynski said. “The previous government had this agreement and now Polish people said no, we don’t want to have this threat in Poland … and we have to respect them.”

    “We have to remember that this agreement was signed by the previous government and now the situation in Poland is completely changed,” he added. “We have to listen to our people.”

    The BBC host would not give up: “Except, if you look at it from the other side, this agreement was made by Poland not by internal Polish politics. You can see you can see how that is being seen from outside. People will say, well look, we don’t care about bickering inside Polish politics. The country has agreed to take its fair share of asylum seekers and that’s not happening.”

    “It’s not not about eternal politics,” Tarczynski responded, “it’s about the situation in Poland, in Europe, in the world. How many terror attacks you had in London?”

    His British host clearly had no words, as Tarczynski continued: “I’m a lawyer, they are not refugees they are immigrants. There is a legal difference between refugee and immigrant. Refugee is the person who flees to the first safe country, not flying throughout the globe looking for the social and better life, so we are not talking about refugees.”

    The BBC host interrupted Tarczynski throughout the interview to try and prevent him from making his valid arguments, but had little luck.

    “Angela Merkel was looking for a cheap labor force, and it turned out that part of this workforce was the cause of terrorist attacks,” Tarczynski said earlier in an interview with a Polish magazine.

    He has been a fierce opponent of the forced relocation of immigrants to Poland. The European Commission has warned that it wants to impose sanctions on Poland because of the decision of the Polish government.

    But the PiS politician has remained firm: “We will not pay any penalties because it is formally impossible. In order for such a sanction to be introduced, it must be applied unanimously. And we know that none of the member states have fulfilled the commitment that the European Commission is now demanding. Only 12 percent. Those who were to be deported were accepted in other countries. I am talking about deportation, because the word “relocation” does not reflect what we are talking about. Any sanctions would have to be imposed on all Community countries.”

    He added that the word “solidarity” was abused in the European context. While being an important notion, Tarczynski said: “We can only talk about it when the Germans start explaining the lack of solidarity in [the gas project] Nord Stream 2. Solidarity can not work one way. The Germans started this madness and now they seek help from others.”

    He said that is why it was not about solidarity, “but about getting rid of the danger that the Germans increasingly see”.

    Britain’s population surged by more than 500 000 in one year with net migration accounting for 62 percent of the population rise, according to fresh figures from the UK’s Office of National Statistics.

    The growth in population is centred London, more than doubling that of the North of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

    England’s population alone has risen to over 55 million for the first time, with the UK’s population growing by 538 000 in the year ending June 2016.

    Public services meanwhile are being stretched to breaking point.

    Authorities in France have also been forced to convert former low-cost hotels around the country into temporary migrant housing as the strain on public services begins to show.

    Existing reception centers have only 40 000 available places, while the applications for asylum have doubled.

    The closure last October of the notorious ‘Calais Jungle’ where some 8 000 people from Africa and the Middle East lived temporarily while attempting to get to the UK, has exacerbated the situation.

    The low-cost housing scheme called “Prahda” (Program for reception and accommodation of asylum seekers), and is being run by the housing ministry.

    According to French weekly L’Express, some of the accommodation converted for migrants will be in budget Formule1 hotels, 62 of which were bought by the French state this year. The weekly said authorities have estimated that it would cost at least 5,000 euros to convert each room.

    Stéphane Dupont-Ferrier, mayor of Fontanile, told L’Express: “Ninety-six people is an enormous number for our town of 2 800 inhabitants. It risks bringing trafficking and prostitution”.

    Thierry Cozic, the socialist mayor of Arnage complained that “contrary to common sense” a “refugee” center will be built almost next to a tourist complex. France is already suffering from a downturn in tourism after the spate of terror attacks.

    A 0.8 per cent drop in visitors has cost the Paris area 1.3 billion Euros, which is a 6.1 per cent fall in takings from 2015, Le Figaro reported.
