How can we continue to allow people there to live in those appealing conditions? I can't understand we we're not doing something about it as a country. Children are trying to survive in the mud and cold. It's a wonder disease hasn't broken out! There are only 7000 of them! We could easily find room for them in Britain. London may be overcrowded but there are plenty more places to house them. How many houses just need a bit of refurbishment to make them liveable? I'm sure we could do that! There are literally thousands of houses for sale on Rightmove and the same on Spareroom, so why isn't the government buying these places up to house our fellow humans? We could easily find room for 100,000 with what is readily available for purchase and refurbishment. So why don't we do it? We could take those in Calais straight away and solve the issue with France tomorrow. So why don't we?
