Which countries in the world take in the most refugees? Clue: we're not one of them

With the immigration debate once again in full swing, it's worth noting that far from being over run by asylum seekers, the UK does not feature in the top 10 countries taking in refugees.

Indeed there is only one EU country that does feature in the top 10- Germany, which takes on nearly 4 times as many as us (589700 vs. 149765)

Food for thought.
