Calais will be written on whose heart?

The Cameron government was never keen to get involved in the migrant crisis. Having finally been shamed by the Dubs amendment, to recognise the urgent need of unaccompanied kids in refugee camps, we did make a commitment, to accept 20,000 Syrian refugess by 2020. Progress so far? Pathetic. We've taken in 20 children in the last three months while, as Amelia Gentleman's Guardian article makes powerfully clear, the crisis I urgent - young kids, vulnerable and terrified, are in need of immediate rescue. But from here on, any politician who wants to drag their feet over immigration issues, can point at the Brexit result, and say there's a mandate for raising two fingers to the rest of the world. Put Britain first. Take back control. It's going to take a lot to get over this.
