World Refugee Day
Today is World Refugee Day. I know from my postbag that the need to provide compassion, sanctuary and hope to those in this perilous situation is something of great concern to many people in East Renfrewshire. The treatment of refugees, and in particular unaccompanied child refugees by the UK Tory Government is sorely lacking, and my colleagues and I will continue to push at every opportunity for improvement.
This poem by Brian Bilston is worth reading - and important to read it to the end.
