Tonight (5.30-7pm) there is to be a VIGIL in Glasgow by people who want the British Government to behave like this is a CIVILISED country and allow a family from Malawi to stay here rather than deporting them to face separation and misery. Auntie Caron is among those attending and I will be there IN FLUFFY SPIRIT!
Glasgow is happy to welcome to Ms Florence and Ms Precious and we all should be too.
There are LOTS of good reasons for letting them stay, but I only need ONE: Great Britain is BETTER because people want to come here.
People want to come here because we have VALUES, values of generosity and hospitality to those who are in need, values of welcome to those who want to contribute to our society.
Let's not make this a mean and nasty place.
Please lend your support as well.
