They’re lucky they don’t live in London.

London hasn't been at war and had their homes razed to ground rubble.

 

These islands are very small normally with a five figure population. Larger more wealthy countries could and should be doing much more though for some odd reason the migrants are not being allowed to leave and effectively 'imprisoned'.

I was talking about the islanders not the refugees.

London is a very big place (though the city itself is very small) but in it's entirety, is no different than any other areas throughout UK in that there are, and always will be, pockets of deprivation.

 

Try a visit to Kew Gardens, a walk in Richmond Park where herds of wild deer roam free, wander down to the Thames and walk along the path to the Barmy Arms opposite Eel Pie Island....both places steeped in serious musical history where the Rolling Stones, The Who, Pink Floyd, Yardbirds, Black Sabbath and many other bands began. If lucky you might even spot Pete Townshend in the Barmy Arms as he lives nearby and sometimes drops in.

 

Even Richmond town centre is pleasant enough to walk around and for all the bad things folk who don't live in London, criticise Londoners for, i was taken by surprise on a crowded bus from Richmond town back to my sons house when a young guy stood up to offer me his seat! Maybe i looked knackered, but that doesn't happen in Cheshire! :-D

110 homicides by stabbing in London 2019 plus all the ones who survived. So maybe you are better off on a Greek Island.

Barely any in the type of areas in London i mentioned j/start. And remember the population of Lesbos, the largest of the islands mentioned, is just 86,000, where Londons total population is 8.9 million. There's no comparison at all.
