Government has no compassion

Published 08/09/2015

The criminal actions of people-smugglers did not create this unfolding tragedy. If every smuggler was removed, the problem would continue to develop.

Shame on our Government in lacking the moral compass to act in a compassionate way towards desperate fellow human beings.

David Cameron and his ministers are political Levites - prepared to find any excuse to avoid crossing the road to help the unfortunate victim on the roadside.
