Allowing illegal migrant boats to cross the Channel is false compassion

Aug 12, 2020 by

by Harry Phibbs, Conservative Home: The media narrative, as so often, has portrayed the story as toughness versus tenderness.

Jul 30, 2018 by

by Virginia Hale, Breitbart: The British government has admitted that no Christians were taken among the Syrian refugees flown into Britain recently, with the Home Office rejected the handful of non-Muslims selected for resettlement by the United Nations.
