Herefordshire Council will discuss the potential resettling of least 125 refugees in Herefordshire over a period of five years when it’s (sis) cabinet meets next week.Because it's not really the voters of Herefordshire, is it?
The council and its partners have successfully resettled 95 refugees in Hereford between 2016 and 2019.
The families have been welcomed by local people and have made a positive contribution to their local communities in a variety of ways.None are mentioned, strangely... Wouldn't you have thought they'd have examples?
Are there any clues as to what these nebulous 'positive contributions are? Well, yes, actually. They are buried in the alternative options.
1. Not to make any further commitment to the refugee resettlement scheme at this time.
This option is not recommended as participating in the scheme broadens Herefordshire’s diversity, supporting economic and community growth and resettlement has been successful, suggesting little reason not to extend further.There you have it. That's the 'positive contribution' they make, according to the good burghers of Herefordshire. They aren't those awful white Christian voters....
Well, voters of Herefordshire, you know what to do, don't you?
