Letter to Stella Creasy — my MP, 14th September 2015.
I’m so glad that you spoke with such passion and positivity last week about our ability and obligation as a country to take refugees. Thank you — and for your part in the debate about Yarls Wood.
You say the question is a moral one and I agree — will you therefore act in parliament to highlight and address our complicity in the root causes of this crisis — our support of the arms trade and our contribution to the causes of global climate change?
Of the many possible actions we can take, these seem the most pertinent this week:
Congratulations on your strong campaign for deputy, and I look forward to an opposition in Parliament fighting with renewed vigour against austerity.
