Winter is coming. The immortal words of House Stark from Game of Thrones and i suspect soon to be one of the most quoted lines in Lib Dem history.
Tim used it whilst talking about the Refugee Crisis, saying:
“Winter is coming and the risks and hardships faced by those seeking sanctuary will only increase.
If you are shocked by the pictures on our TV screens today, just think how much worse they will look when the snows come to the Balkans.
If we don’t act now, many more will die.”
Whilst i don’t want to detract from the importance of what Tim was talking about it does however make a brilliant opening to the edited highlights real of Tim Farron’s speech to the Bournemouth Conference. The Full speech will soon be up to view and once it is we’ll post a link to it.
p.s. If you haven’t already done it please make sure you sign the Independents Petition on Change.org calling on David Cameron to allow Britain to accept its fair share of refugees in Europe. You can also make donations to numerous charities such as Oxfam, Médecins Sans Frontières or the Red Cross which are doing all they can to offer life saving aid and support to refugees in Europe and the Middle East.
