Soldiers are intentionally put in high risk situations and knowingly take risks to safeguard the lives of others. Human rights do not change this, however, Article 2 requires that when putting troops in danger the MoD must take reasonable steps to protect them from known risks to life.
Not only is this government responsible for these catastrophic economic outcomes and the plight of millions, but it also happens to be one of the most racist governments that I have experienced as a Member of Parliament in nearly 30 years.
Over the course of the 2016 election campaign, Trump seems to have morphed into the living breathing proof of Nietzsche's assertion that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. Because despite the most recent outrage dubbed, "Pussy-gate", he is unaccountably still standing.
Demolitions do not constitute a long-term and sustainable solution to the crisis and they are not a deterrent to refugees who, by definition, have no choice but to flee their homes. Half of the camp was demolished last year and it has since doubled in size.
Seven-year-olds aren't equipped to cross a continent and then fend for themselves in a makeshift tent. They die, they disappear and all the time smug fasicsts are sitting in their provincial homes posting on Facebook about an immigrant's hoodie looking too clean.
If there is one thing that all businesses crave it is certainty. Yet, Brexit unavoidably generates uncertainty. And whilst Theresa May rightly says it's our job to make a success of leaving the EU, this will be far easier to achieve and much more prosperous to experience, if we send an unequivocal message that Britain remains fully open for business.
Refugees have fled the wars of Syria and Afghanistan and lived by their wits as they dragged themselves across a continent, hoping to be reunited with relatives in countries like Britain and France. And as they smiled at the cameras for the journalists waiting outside the immigration office in Croydon, they would have little sense of the anger and hatred that would be directed at them here in the fifth richest country on Earth.
This is not a problem that any one organisation or sector can solve on its own. We have to work together. And furthermore, this is not just a problem in the UK, but a global crime that transcends borders and requires a coordinated global response.
This should be a proud moment for the UK. This is our chance to show our humanity. I worry about what the children will face if they are brought to the UK and the possible prejudice that might follow.
