‘Oo let ’em in?’

I’ve written about our appalling Home Office, with reference to its attitude towards and treatment of immigrants, before: https://bernardjporter.com/2018/05/31/our-unhomely-office/. Here’s a well-researched, insightful and deeply shocking piece about it in today’s Guardian. A long read, but worth the effort. – And we call ourselves a ‘liberal’ country?

The title of this post is taken from the public reaction to the ‘Sidney Street Siege’ in 1911. I’ve written about that too, but I can’t remember where.
