We need to act and act now

Judith has today added her voice to calls for the British Government to change its position on accepting more refugees in to the country saying

“We’re faced with one of the worst humanitarian crises since the Second World War, with millions of Syrians desperately fleeing their war-torn country.

“The image yesterday of that poor boy’s body washed up on the beach in Turkey will be forever burnt into my memory. This wasn’t an asylum seeker, a refugee, an immigrant, he was just an innocent young boy, caught up in unimaginable circumstances.

“The UK has a long and proud tradition of providing safe haven to those who genuinely need our protection. We need to act and act now.”
