2022-05-23 0 By

Two million Ukrainians have fled the country, and most European countries have offered to take them in.While other countries have opened their doors to Ukrainian refugees, Britain has put up barriers to stop them.Britain is slowing the admission of Ukrainian refugees through an inefficient bureaucracy.Even when refugees arrive in the UK, they cannot work until they are granted official refugee status.The British can give the Ukrainian president a standing ovation in parliament while shutting out his countrymen;Britain can take fruit pickers from Ukraine, but not its refugees.(Cover of The Spectator, March 12
