Strong beer. And passionate poetry in aid of our Roath Brook Trees Campaign at the stalwart & their generous staff. Hearing of arrogant youthful raindrops’ dialogue with wise trees, of loss, of hiraeth - and the mystery of the ice sculptor solved...Diolch

Replying to @DavidLammy
Can you invite the PM too since it’s her policies that led to this scandal?

This is really wonderful news. I’m so happy Sylvester now feels able to go by his own name and is no longer in hiding in his own country. I have invited Sylvester to Parliament to tell his story, and I have invited the Home Secretary to attend the meeting and listen to him.

To be totally honest with you, I would have preferred work to ensure that our immigration policy is fair and humane a while ago. Ideally before my constituents were detained by the Home Office, kicked out of their jobs and threatened with deportation. But maybe that’s just me.

If I was Home Secretary I'd have resigned over the Windrush scandal itself, resigned a second time for misleading Parliament about the existence of deportation targets, and then resigned a third time for misleading Parliament about not knowing. A disgrace.

Let me correct your typo for you I know you find it hard sometimes. “British citizens” is spelt “British citizens”, not “illegal immigrants”. Happy to help and all the best. David

So far they've tried to blame Home Office officials, immigration enforcement staff, Labour ministers, successive governments and (in letters to me) the fact that Windrush children didn't get their status sorted before 1971 (they didn't need to - they were citizens). Any more?

I don’t buy this fake Brexiter concern for immigrants. They fought the most disgusting anti-immigrant EU referendum campaign and now want us to believe they are the champions of immigrants. That is certainly not how my community - one with a proud history of immigration - sees it

I am disgusted and appalled by the case I have just received. My constituent arrived from Jamaica in 1964 aged 6. He has shown me his letter from the Home Office telling him that he will be deported despite having a National Insurance card from 1974 & NHS documentation from 1964.

Home Secretary, you are mistaken. The Windrush children were British citizens when we invited them here 70 years ago, as a direct result of colonialism and empire. Their British citizenship is theirs by right and is not something that your Govnt is now choosing to ‘offer’ them.

Home Secretary just said Windrush children can become citizens if they want to be. They were citizens when we invited them 70 years ago. Their citizenship is theirs by right, and was taken away by your government, not something that your government is now choosing to grant them.

The buck stops with the PM on this one - there’s no running away from it. She can try and blame her successor, the last Labour Government and so on but all roads lead back to her

The Tories knew about the devastating consequences of their 'hostile environment' policy but pushed ahead anyway, destroying lives in the process. As I said earlier today, there is something rotten at the heart of this Government.

Last week’s “unintended consequence” defence now lies in tatters. Yet more evidence of wilfully ignoring the human cost of the hostile environment and dismissing warnings in a race to the bottom pandering to far-right anti-immigrant sentiment. Innocent people paid the price.

Time to speak up for those who gave so much and asked for so little.

Emails coming in constantly with horrendous stories from Windrush Children. Threats of deportation, people refused re-entry after a holiday and unable to return home, people unable to attend their parents' funerals. Absolutely appalling. I am raising each case with Home Office.
