Accept more asylum seekers and increase support for refugee migrants in the UK: Sign the petition.

‘Shame on your country, that’s something Germans have long lived with. The British tell only gallant tales about ourselves. Now David Cameron has shamed us all, his nasty party turning our reputation nasty.’   says Polly Toynbee.

This governments’ reluctance to provide safety and security for refugees from humanitarian crisis caused by war in Syria has been exposed as totally inadequate when compared with that of many other European countries.   Since 2011 the UK has accepted 7,000 asylum seekers and Germany is looking to accept 800,000 this year. Do we really want this country to be seen as callous, inhumane and totally insular when faced with the greatest refugee crisis this century?   

Our international reputation depends on our showing an example, taking a lead or at the very least taking some form of equal responsibility with that of other European countries.  

If you feel we should be doing more you can have a voice by signing this petition:  https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/105991
