Can the compassion explosion brought by the refugee crisis stop a UK war on Syria?

WHAT an extraordinary week. After years of poor displaced people always being “migrants” and never “refugees”, of our elected representatives calling them “swarms” and our professional trolls calling them “cockroaches”, only a few months after 4 million voted for a party whose only real principle is “never let them in”, a sudden geyser of compassion has erupted.
