I havent blogged for weeks because I have been working on an article which is linked here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1qr98DlhMv_YXJVRVdQS0VlMEU/edit?usp=sharing about the UK’s cruelty towards asylum seekers. It has been a hard task. The article attempts to understand the cruelty in order to make suggestions about what to do about it. First though I had to establish the case that the UK system is cruel. Sadly that wasnt hard.
And it still amazes and upsets me each time I encounter another detail about the extent of the cruelty. If you find the article useful or it strikes a chord in you please distribute the link as widely as you can. I hope one day enough people will get behind this cause so that we learn to welcome genuine asylum seekers into our country and give them our best possible support and a safe haven.
