Britain's Religious Leaders Right to Stand Up for Europe's Roma

Kate Allen | Posted 18.04.2014 | UK

Claudia, for example, a woman in her late 20s, was made to live in a small room with her husband, her three sons, her parents and her brother's family - all 11 of them, sharing a bathroom with 30 others. After more than three years of this mistreatment, no alternatives have been offered to their ghastly inadequate living conditions. Imagine if something similar was happening here in Britain.

Last Night's Panorama Wasn't Balanced, It Was Racist

Steve Rose | Posted 16.02.2014 | UK Politics
Steve Rose

This edition of Panorama is merely a symptom of the wider discourse around immigration. A debate so toxic that facts are shouted down in a wave of popular fascism. But it also threatens our relationship with Europe and our right to free movement. On both fronts, we should all be worried about where this debate is heading in 2015.

Sean Axtell

UK concern is paramount because EU countries with stronger job markets like Germany and France will be overlooked in favour of this island for no apparent reason.
