Oct 26, 2019 by

by George Carey, Telegraph: War in Syria has reignited. Once again refugees fill its roads in need of our compassion. Yet those from the “wrong faith” won’t find it from the British Government.

So when the authorities got wind of this the responded by scrapping the scheme. This led to...
