Scotland has welcomed more Syrian refugees than any other region in Britain since Downing Street vowed to take in 20,000 displaced people, government figures show. The stats also reveal Britain has taken in a mere 8 percent of this quota to date.

The data, which was published on Friday by the Home Office, exposes a sharp imbalance in local authorities’ acceptance rates of refugees across the country.

The figures reveal a total of 1,602 people have been housed under Downing Street’s Vulnerable Person Resettlement scheme (VPR) to date.

Scottish authorities resettled 610 refugees, housing 68 in Renfrewshire and 53 in Edinburgh. Coventry, in the English West Midlands, was the most welcoming council, resettling a total of 105 Syrians within six months.

Of London’s 33 boroughs, just Islington, Barnet, Camden and Kingston-upon-Thames took in refugees. No local authorities in north-west England – including 10 spread across Greater Manchester – accepted any.

Some 171 refugees, meanwhile, were accepted by local authorities in Humberside and Yorkshire.

Welsh councils accepted 78, while Northern Ireland accepted a further 51.

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, Home Secretary Theresa May’s constituency, failed to accept a single Syrian refugee.

Likewise, Watford Borough Council, where the Home Office minister responsible for resettling refugees, Richard Harrington, is based, had a zero acceptance rate.

Meanwhile the Scottish homeless are left on the streets. Kranky overcome with Merkelism

The plight of the Scottish homeless is a total disgrace to the Sottish nation! Charity starts at home!

Sympathy for the real Scottish people that do not wish to be invaded,but the ‘experts’ never mention the amount of more…
I’m sure the people of Leith(Edinburgh) and Govan(Glasgow) will be delighted.

Not that the Scottish MP’s will care. They of course live in Morningside(Edinburgh) and Kelvinside(Glasgow).

Are there many refuges in Westminster?

Sympathy for the real Scottish people that do not wish to be invaded,but the ‘experts’ never mention the amount of people living in a certain area of usable space,it will all hit home when everything begins to shut down because it cannot cope,this is the continuation project for millions more to join the millions already here most do not work or want work,that’s work paying into the system, outbreeding is the end game for them paid for by silly infidels.

    Meanwhile we Brits get bumped down the housing ladder, face longer queues for the NHS and wages are undermined by this criminal drive imposing mass immigration.
