On Wednesday, Parliament will vote on whether to close the Dubs scheme, which allows unaccompanied child refugees to enter Britain. When established, this scheme was supposed to take in 3,000 kids; it’s done less than a tenth of that, and closing it now would be shameful.
I just wrote a brief letter to my MP to that effect:
Dear Mark Harper,
When I think of British Values, I think of decency, kindness, and especially a concern for the most vulnerable. The Dubs amendment was a fine example of what it means to be British; the prospect of ending the scheme that it establishes makes me ashamed. Please vote on Wednesday to keep the Dubs scheme open.
Dr. Mike Taylor
If you agree — or indeed if you disagree — you can very easily write to your own MP via the WriteToThem website. It takes about three minutes.
Please consider it.
