Ed Davey - Ukraine

We should welcome those in need

As the horror continues to unfold in Ukraine, the generosity of our communities is inspiring, with local people willing to open their homes and their hearts.

However, frustration due to the red-tape and bureaucracy that people are facing as they offer support, is loudly condemned by Lib Dems in Teignbridge. The government's incompetence is now made worse by the Home Secretary's attempt to deal with the issue of refugees by sending them half a world away to Rwanda. We need less rhetoric and more action. Lord Harrington, Minister for Refugees, needs to make his mark and take action.

There is a stark contrast between the Government's response to this crisis and that of the Syrians and Afghans. Many refugees are still waiting for help, they cannot be forgotten.

The Government's reaction to this crisis simply does not reflect the compassion seen from the British people, both at home and on the border with Ukraine. Boris Johnson and Priti Patel are betraying refugees and the British people who are ready to welcome them with open arms.

We need to keep pushing the Government to do their bit.

Please help send Conservatives the message that we cannot turn our back on Ukraine.


Liberal Democrats see the best in things. We celebrate diversity and nonconformity and if something isn't working we try to fix it or we fight for reform. We are committed to representing local people and making sure your voices are heard.
