We now have a new Prime Minister and Cabinet. We voted to leave the EU. The future is a book still to be written. I very much hope we welcome genuine refugees fleeing conflict in their own lands.
I wish the new PM well, but it is a VERY long time go that I voted
Conservative! Leaving the EU and still remaining good friends with our
European neighbours will not be easy.
As I have said before, we
like the idea of free trade but not free movement of people to our small
island. We already are crowded with a high population density. Unlike
Germany with a falling population we do not actually need people.
course, genuine refugees fleeing conflict are always welcome. We
welcomed Hugenots, German Jews and others in the past and I hope we are
still a welcoming place for those fleeing trouble in their own lands.
Most British have always welcomed refugees. I remember being at school with a boy from Hungary in the late 1950s. I hope he soon felt at home.
