Political prospects

Have your say

With all this clamour to bring war- torn people from a conflict zone to Sheffield it strikes me that certain politicians are falling over themselves, not only to help but also to raise their own political and public profile.

Take a bow, Isobel Bowler!

If we are giving succour to those suffering from bombardment, what about the poor folk of our twin city of Donetsk in Ukraine?

Here’s a conflict that’s been running for a few years now but Sheffielders haven’t heard a peep out of local politicians or any condemnation of this conflict. No clamour to help these people, we’re supposed to have strong ties to. Why not?

Clearly helping Syrians is more politically right on and can’t do your political prospects any harm.
