UKIP's Nigel Farage blasts Cameron for stopping Christian refugees from reaching Britain

Last month the Prime Minister agreed to let 20,000 refugees from camps in and around Syria into the UK over the next five years.

But Mr Farage slammed the move, saying: "Basically what Cameron has done pretty much excludes any Christians from coming.

"I just feel that the Christians are being ignored."

Last month the Prime Minister agreed to let 20,000 refugees from camps in and around Syria into the UK over the next five years.

But Mr Farage slammed the move, saying: "Basically what Cameron has done pretty much excludes any Christians from coming.

"I just feel that the Christians are being ignored."

The MEP added that accepted 4,000 refugees is an "irrelevant fact that when you consider that 640,000 people settled in Britain last year".

He also blamed the the European Union's migration policy for the crisis, which has spiralled out of control in recent months.

According to Breitbart London, he said: "We all talk about the photograph of that boy dead on the beach [Aylan Kurdi], but we should be seeing 3,000 photographs like that.

"There are 3,000 people who have died... and EU policy is responsible for it.

"Australia has incurred massive criticism but people have stopped drowning and that's worth thinking about."

Kurdi, a three-year-old Syrian boy, drowned with his brother and mother while trying to reach Turkey last month.

The shocking image sent shockwaves around the world and some say it forced Mr Cameron to tackle the spiralling crisis.
