Jim and Steve (and others) are right. There seems to be an extraordinary lack of compassion and human sympathy for refugees, Grenfell Tower casualties and this young woman.

Maybe people nowadays are swept along in a tide of Islamophobia, xenophobia and downright callousness. The mob bigotry and racism carry all the ignorant people towards a state of complete intolerance and hatred.
I agree that our country didn't used to be like this. So sad.

I saw on the News just last night some footage of one of these 'camps' in Syria. The children's faces said it all. Pinched, hungry, afraid and obviously suffering. The women looked desperate.
I can't imagine what it must be like to have just given birth, to be weak and ill-fed, having already experienced terrible trauma and seen evil things.
I can only hope and pray that somehow Shamima can be fetched home and helped.
