Who wants free stuff!
It comes as serious splits emerged in Angela Merkel’s Government over how to divide economic migrants from genuine refugees fleeing war-torn countries.

However Mrs Merkel said the proposal would only work in certain cases, and would “not help for thousands and thousands of refugees”.
