We must rediscover the humanity of 1945 | The Times

I know I’m seen by some as a soft hearted liberal and if so good but we really do need to start to remember that these are people not ‘swarms’ and that that poor toddler found on the beach in Turkey is only one of thousands. I wish I could say that the British government was showing leadership but wishing is about all they’re doing…wishing this would all stay the other side of the Channel…it won’t.

Some days it really saddens me to be a human being.

I’ve shared this article from The Times for you to read:
