Yes, the ultimate destination. Streets paved with hold. Every single one of these migrants is simply on their way to the UK.
The way this evolved, it was Greece and Italy's problem initially, so no decisions were made by Europe at the start of the influx of migrants because Europe as a whole didn't need to decide anything. Stage Two then became, that Angela Merkel foolishly, without any authority of the German people to say it, said they could come to Germany.
