Imagine having to flee your country ...

The Refugee Council, Refugee Action and Scottish Refugee Council, are asking parliamentary candidates to sign the Refugees Welcome Pledge, which emphasises the importance of ensuring Britain continues to protect people fleeing conflict and horrific human rights abuses, as this country has done throughout history.

The Refugees Welcome Pledge:

I pledge to respect the importance of refugee protection, including in wide-ranging debates about immigration, and, if elected, to uphold the proud tradition throughout the UK of welcoming people forced to flee war and persecution and helping them rebuild their lives.

I've gladly signed this pledge.
