There are many ways of determining a person's age. Teeth, bones, hair will give a good indication. And what is wrong with bringing your passport? They were invented for a reason!

The really odd thing that no one explains is why on earth do European countries accept persons of whom they know nothing?? on the basis of stories that cannot be verified at all??

in Sweden, it used to be that if a 'youngster' looked like under 40, he would be classified as a minor. One can be a grandparent at that age. But no questions asked. Because it would be unfriendly to refugees to doubt their story.

Last week I read a report that Austria (?) accepts minors as refugees while they do not know the identity of 90% of them. Nine out of ten have a story and identity that cannot be verified. They Just Don't Know. Yet they hand over the money.

Imagine going to a bank and shouting: Hey give me money, I need it! And then getting away with a lot of it.

IMHO there is no legal ground to support somone with free food, free lodiging, free education and free healthcare if you cannot even determine that they are entitled to that. Yet this is happening, and the difference with the treatment of us lesser mortals could not be more striking.

It won't last, but this has been going on for far too long.
