One Britain's most popular radio hosts has lambasted his government's response the Ukrainian refugee crisis. Nick Ferrari the radio station LBC called the situation "a disgrace". The UK has two visa schemes running to help refugees relocate the UK. The government said it had received 79,800 visa applications Ukrainians and had thus far issued 40,900 visas. However, a paltry 12,000 refugees had arrived Britain. Poland has taken nearly 3 million refugees and Germany has taken 300,000. The UK's neighbour Ireland, with a population one-twelfth that of Britain's, has welcomed over 20,000 refugees. The UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel has apologised what she called the "frustrating" situation.
Nick Ferrari did not hold back his criticism of his government's response. He called the whole government to be fired. He said: "It's an absolute scandal....This is beyond comprehension. How can this level incompetence survive? Sack the whole...lot them." Mr Ferrari was particularly irked the visa application process, which includes Ukrainians wanting refuge the UK having to fill a 51-page online application form English. He also castigated the government its mountain of red tape. Over 200,000 Britons have applied to accept a refugee into their home, but excessive bureaucracy means applications are rejected if a home has a garden pond. Many say the UK's visa schemes are set to fail.
