An important manifesto

I have signed up to the Manifesto for Refugees and Asylum Seekers in Wales. Hopefully, my name will shortly appear on their website here.

The Manifesto contains five pledges:

1. Welcome people seeking safety from persecution
2. Empower refugees to rebuild their lives
3. Provide fair and equal access to services
4. Protect children and young people
5. Develop a strong evidence base so as to plan services effectively for refugees and asylum
seekers and to evaluate the effectiveness of policies.
This manifesto is an excellent initiative, and I am so pleased that you have signed up to it.
I hope empowering refugees to rebuild their lives means allowing them to work.

The most absurd thing about the asylum system is that asylum seekers are not allowed to work, they are totally dependent upon the state, at vast expense...
Can I also put in a word for the Swansea Bay asylum seekers group?
