    Can I apply for asylum? :) I am being persecuted for not liking hot weather. The temperatures are already in high 40s'C!!! I love cold weather and I am being punished!!!!!!

    I do not pray 5 times ;), I am skilled enough :), am not single and not out to 'mingle', am an asset to present country and it's society and I definitely won't live off 'donations'; won't need monetary support to sustain till I find a job. Only I shall need dedicated language lessons.
    :blink:

    Seriously, French would not even allow me to think of seeking a job :D

    @Fox what is the situation in Norway?:agree: Any chance for me? Citing hot weather as a reason for me to seek 'refuge'?

    But @Picard what is it with you French? Can not get your act together? Look at your country being (ab)used with tonnes of 'refugees' whose first point after reaching is to demand same rules from which they escaped and to demand 'money' as their birth right. And then for good measure, the right to impose sharia and burqa as mandatory dresses!

    Terrible, just terrible. It's a blistering 10 C right now (and rainy, but what else is new?):confused:. I'm thinking about asking the Greater Penguin Empire in Antarctic for asylum myself to escape this horrid heat.

    You're welcome to join me though.

    However the good news for you is that Norway is one of the more generous countries when it comes to accepting refugees (controversially of course) with 9 per every 1000 citizens (Sweden takes 14 per every 1000 people). That bad news for you is that many are from Pakistan, so you'll need to go incognito as a Pakistani to gain entry:D. The annual resettlement quota is typically 1200 persons, but subject to changes.

    Conversely Norway has historically been closed to immigration, only opening up within the last 10-15 years.

    Unlike France or Sweden, Norway's immigrants and refugees haven't been much of an issue, though illegal ones are deported and hundred have been sent back to Russia in recent years.

    Picard is not French.

    IMO, you're a refugee when you cross from a war zone, or place of torture, to the nearest safe area. If you keep moving after that you're an economic migrant.

    Europe is finished. Unless of course they start flushing these dumbos out.

    Thanks. I just saw he seems to be a Croat?

    Name was confounding.

    "With you French"? I'm Croatian, just look at my avatar... I chose the nickname because I used to be obsessed with Star Trek, but frankly if people continue to assume that I'm a French based on that, I'll have to change it...

    Don't worry, I'm not sentimental, but I do get annoyed sometimes when trolls go all "you are French, your arguments vs F-35/M1/F-22 are thus invalid".
