John Key has announced a special intake of Syrian refugees over the next three years, over and above the existing refugee quota. It’s not much, but it’s better than nothing. So let’s just be grateful, and not play politics over Key’s lack of empathy and absence of humanity.
I continue to be asked whether New Zealand will lift its annual refugee quota. We’re obviously all concerned about events in Europe, but we need to respond in a calm and measured way.
Who the hell do these people think they are? What gives these refugees the right to wash their dead children onto someone else’s beach?
