Beautiful December

Now, when the garden awaits the return of spring
Now, when the silence is deep and blue
Now, when the winter has cast her spell again
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Here, where the snow is as soft as a woolly lamb
Here, where the nightfall is deep and blue,
Here, where the stars are so bright, you reach for them
Beautiful December, Beautiful December

Child, may you sleep in gentle peace tonight
Dream of songs that rise on silken wings!
When you wake, enchanted by the snowspun light
Sing the songs that came to you in dreams,
Your beautiful December dreams

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.
