Pauline Elizabeth Latham, Conservative Party politician, the member of Parliament for Mid Derbyshire, adds her contribution to the debate on child refugees. How indicative her views are of Conservative government policy on this issue is not clear, but certainly her abhorrent remarks demonstrate a callous and uncaring demeanor to a tragic situation which the United Kingdom government and Latham, chooses to ignore. Latham went on to say that, " if children were living in “rat-infested” shelters with no mattresses in Greece, that was not Britain’s concern.
When it comes to indifference and insensitivity, conservative MP's have few equals.
