The Windrush Generation – Some of them are being treated appallingly

In recent times I see my country acting in ways that make me deeply ashamed of it and this is another sad and worrying example of us turning on our own people as the powers that be seek out scapegoats for our increasingly everyday racism.

Channel 4 has the story on its web site – see link above

What really gets me about this is that instead of regularising the paperwork each time one of these seemingly unregistered (and there could be 50,000 of them!) cases comes to the surface some of the poor people involved have been locked up. That’s no way to treat people we invited to our country no matter how or why the law was changed regarding them in 1971. They are British and should be helped to resolve any paperwork issues from generations ago without the need for them to be locked up and threatened with deportation.

If we can be so intolerant towards our own people what on earth does it show about how we are treating modern day refugees! What on earth are we coming to in Brexit Britain?
