Three high profile men whose words seem consistent

Today on Facebook this image of the Pope’s 2019 Crucifix has been circulating where he has replaced the body of Christ with the image of a refugee lifejacket, with this leader of the Roman Catholic Church stating that every refugee denied entry to our nations or that ends up drowning in the sea is being treated in the same way as the nations are treating Christ. It is clear from the words of the Conservative Manifesto that they were willing to grant asylum and support to refugees although the new MP for Dover appears to have ignored this very clear promise and stated “anyone found in the Channel is immediately sent back to France” with the news of the latest series of refugees who have arrived into our waters and onto our shores. We clearly need a much more consistent approach to the words in the manifesto, the statement by Donald Trump and the position adopted by the Pope than the attitude expressed by Natalie Elphicke. Indeed given that there have been promises made by hundreds of people in the UK to care for people seeking refuge, it is vital that our Government steps up to the line.
