Europe Is Facing a Clear and Undeniable Refugee Crisis

On the humanitarian side, there's inspiring, exciting leadership, not mostly from governments or even charitable bodies, but individuals, people getting together and saying that they're not going to tolerate desperation, suffering and want, but are going to take individual action to provide refuge... Sadly, if predictably, the British government falls into the other pole of reaction to the crisis, with those who'd deny the reality of the need for refuge, who pull up the drawbridge of a peaceful, prosperous country and turn their back on desperation, fear and need, leaving the children to drown.
