I am fed up with all this pussyfooting around over how few Syrian refugees we as a nation can take. If York is truly a City of Sanctuary, then we should take the moral high ground and offer home to as many Syrian refugees as we can.

How to pay for it? I personally would be happy with a surcharge on my council tax for this good cause. It’s better than many other things we already pay for!
