Refugees not scroungers

Have your say

I fully agree with Charles Napier (September 4).

It is wrong to label most of the migrants as scroungers. I would go as far as to say that it is insulting to people in genuine need.

They are after all refugees fleeing the terror of ISIS and as such a little compassion would not be amiss.

My thoughts are, if the western world had gone in to help them in the first place then they would never have needed to come here at such risk and in such distressing circumstances, especially heartbreaking where the children are concerned.
