    Hello Joe wake up! Not a good message to be sending out. Probably would have been a better President 20 years ago when he could remember things.

    The old law made it illegal to assist asylum seekers for gain. The new law removes the words 'for gain'.

    Ah mate whenever I think of Sir Nicholas that clip comes to my head and makes me cry.
    I’ve got his book on my kindle that I really should read.
    If we had more Nicholas Wintons in the world it would be a far better place. He really is my all time hero

    In a day and age where it seems wrong to be able to distinguish between a man and a real man, well, here we have a real man.

    Not for everyone mate and it was a pretty complex procedure ….. he forged a lot of documents to get the kids out. The man was an angel in human form.
    I cried when he died

    He was a great man and philanthropist but to suggest, as Strolls original post does, that he was acting against government, equivalent to a modern day people trafficker, is nonsense. Winton was able to succeed with the aid of the British government, that was already operating a system of kindertransport for kids.

    Compare this to the organised criminal Albanian and Iranian gangs that are making millions by sending (mostly) male economic migrants across the English Channel in flimsy boats that have already caused some deaths.

    Well, they don't compare.

    What the trafficking gangs do was already illegal. Why the need to remove the words 'and for gain' from the Bill?

    I'm not familiar with this Bill, but presumably we all will be when it's debated in Parliament. A guess - asylum seekers must come into the country legally. The front door not the back door. If someone helps an asylum claimer to come in illegally (unlike Winton who did it legally), pushing in front of the queue, then that act will also be illegal.
