The post was made the night before the news broke of the child who had drowned on the beach so this probably had an effect on the way people think towards the refugee crisis that we, as citizens of the blood thirsty UK must share blame for causing.

It's quite simple, we elect war mongers who have destabilised an entire region which was already destabilised to begin with. The fact that previous generations of our people voted for other war mongers who decided where the borders of these countries should lie didn't help in the first place.
Add to this the fact that we love selling these countries weapons and you are simply asking for trouble. Wales is a country of around 3.1 million people. We are a country that has a huge amount of migrants who have come to live in Wales. Some have come for work and others have come because they want to retire here. There are also a huge amount of people who were born in Wales and have decided to move elsewhere, either for work or for a better quality of life.
The people we are seeing on the news are being described as migrants in order for us to associate them with a plumber from Poland, a carpenter from Lithuania or a builder from Ireland. These people are refugees who are escaping an area that we have destabilised. They are not migrants they are fleeing for their lives. Once you are able to differentiate between a migrant and a refugee then the decision of whether to welcome them or not becomes much easier.
