For the first time, I am feeling ashamed to be British.

It shames me to know that my Government is so reluctant to admit those fleeing from war, destruction of homes and livelihoods and the medieval savagery of a brutal enemy.

Are we still a Christian, compassionate country?

I don’t think so.

For those who possess a Bible, I commend the reading of Matthew’s Gospel, Chapter 25,v 41-45.

Very salutary words.
