On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

Denial over immigration feeds a growing inhumanity

The article states that: "We are indeed swamped. By stories about immigration. Someone somehow has decided that stories about immigrants are top of every news agenda at every hour."

Or is this just the UK? Or just Europe? In India, the headlines don't talk about immigration or refugees (maybe because many are trying to immigrate out to countries like the UK).

What is very disturbing however, is how there seems to be a "politics of denial over immigration" that "is feeding a growing inhumanity." Or has it always been like this?

"We are in an epidemic of “othering”. By this I mean it is becoming acceptable to speak of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers not as human at all but as kind of infection, an infection that multiplies and then demands school places for its children."

What do you think is happening.
