Refugees should be welcomed with open arms 

I write to express my horror at the European response to the grotesque experience of our African and Middle Eastern brothers and sisters and, hopefully, to rouse some compassionate anger on behalf of terrified refugees who are risking their lives and those of their families by feeling that they must flee across desert without guarantee of water, or by sea without the guaranteed safety of seaworthy boats, and - worse still - no international, legalised compulsion placed upon the limit of passengers which such craft may carry.
