British political parties announce support for the idea of accepting Syrian refugees

The main British political parties have stated in unison their support for an initiative which would accept Syrian refugees into the country who are fleeing the conflict in Syria.

The leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, Nigel Farage, has also said that he would grant asylum to refugees who are fleeing the conflict in Syria.

Farage added that western countries had a duty to provide a safe sanctuary for the refugees.

The British government has previously refused to allow asylum to Syrian refugees, arguing that it is better to provide them with financial aid.
