Vernon's initial response to the ongoing refugee crisis


Like the rest of you, I am appalled and deeply upset by the current refugee crisis. I agree that our country needs to do more to help and support refugees who are suffering in the most serious humanitarian crisis since the end of World War II.

At last the Government are offering some help and support but there is still much more to do. Clearly we should play our full part in welcoming these asylum seekers and providing the accommodation that they so desperately need.

I have signed The Independent's petition urging David Cameron to accept Britain's fair share of refugees seeking safety in Europe. If you would like to add your voice to the campaign, you can sign the online petition at
