The Refugee Crisis

I’ve talked about this in the past, when the first boats were being picked up by the Italian navy, this time last year as I recall, but instead of the disastrous situation with the refugees being attended to, it has grown and grown to a level now unseen in Europe since the second world war.

They should have done their research before going, but that’s just news. Continue reading The Week 7th December, 2014
