Quote of the day 9th September 2015

"It is a nonsense to suggest that countries which still hang and flog people should in some way be our moral compass. Our humanitarian response is legally and morally the right one.

Britain is Great because of our values and Britons will rejoice in the fact that we have adopted a very different approach and taken in refugees."

(Sajjad Haider Karim, Conservative MEP for the North West of England, responding on BBC radio five live yesterday to a suggestion from UKIP that Britain should take the same number of refugees as the Gulf states, who so far have not taken any)
