I would be so impressed …

I would be so impressed if the British Government put aside considerations of who is responsible and who is not; and whether the French or the British government is to blame for the mess; and if it resisted the barracking of the British right-wing tabloids, with their odious slurs against children in Calais; and if it just did the RIGHT thing.

The RIGHT thing would be to ensure that in the aftermath of the closure of ‘the jungle’ every child who was in that dreadful camp is offered safe and secure accommodation and the chance to grow up in a safe and secure environment.
