Lord Dubs: ‘Someone has to speak up for people who risk their lives

Posted on December 25, 2021

When Lord Dubs saw children being carried wrapped in blankets out of small boats in Kent he was instantly taken back to the moment he arrived in Britain on the Kindertransport having fled the Nazis at the age of six. “What it made me feel is terrible pain for the people who are fleeing,” says the 89-year-old Labour peer. “People must be pretty desperate, having traveled so far anyway, to risk their lives in this way. It made me feel dismayed that our government is not enabling them to be safe.”
