Would anyone on this forum be prepared to make room in their Lewes home for a refugee/s.

I've read today that the marine population has halved. So maybe that could solve the crisis.

Disappointing response so far. I would have expected a few volunteers.

According tp the Guardian, accommodation isn't currently required by the refugees recently shown on TV. Rather, accommodation is needed by any of 200,000 refused asylum seekers currently in the UK. So there is a need but not for Syrians.

Seeing as Daesh is a chaotic creation of various intelligence services including CIA, Saudi and Israel (who are surprisingly cooperative with each other,)it is no coincidence that those countries are rather keen on border fences while using western media to criticise Europeans who point this out.
Interesting how little media interest in the clashes in Dover.

There are lots of people already here who would love to live in Lewes but cannot find anywhere they can afford. If you have a spare room, and don't mind sharing your home, you could really help someone. And add modestly to your income. And, probably, enrich your life experiences. Don't forget to tell your insurance company though - they will want to know.

Why the "Don't forget to tell your insurance company though - they will want to know" Why would an Insurance company want to know that you had a friend staying in your home? Is it for when the 'migrants or immigrants' build a Bonfire in their shed to heat their Pot Noodle?

Fairmeadow - my misunderstanding. I thought the required accommodation was free of charge?

Yes it will be the new talking point of the Islington dinner party set, to boast how many refugees you have in your shed.

You don't have to tell your insurance company when you have guests, but you would invalidate your home insurance if you were to charge, e.g. under the rent-a-room scheme or for a lodger, without telling them. Read your policy small print for the details. Incoming migrants/refugees, and plenty of current UK residents, need somewhere to live, not somewhere to camp for a few nights
