Cam­era-shy kosher store

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - Dis­obe­di­ence

blam­ing lo­cal au­thor­i­ties for not be­ing able to take more but they are just mak­ing ex­cuses. It is very wor­ry­ing. I feel very dis­ap­pointed, not for me

THE OWN­ERS of Kosher King­dom com­plained to Bar­net Coun­cil that film­ing for the movie

out­side their store in Gold­ers Green caused dis­rup­tion for staff and cus­tomers. The coun­cil said an apol­ogy had been is­sued for the in­con­ve­nience caused. per­son­ally, but for all the chil­dren who are not be­ing helped.”

He ap­pealed to Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May not to “shut the door” on vul­ner­a­ble refugees.

He said it would be “a ter­ri­ble be­trayal” of Sir Ni­cholas’s legacy “if, as a coun­try, we were un­able to do more than this to help a new gen­er­a­tion of refugees.”

Robert Good­will, the im­mi­gra­tion min­is­ter, said lo­cal au­thor­i­ties had the ca­pac­ity to pro­vide places for only 400 un­ac­com­pa­nied chil­dren un­til the end of March.

Edie Fried­man, di­rec­tor of the Jewish Coun­cil for Racial Equal­ity, said the gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion was “sick­en­ing…

“We are fac­ing a world­wide cri­sis and if Bri­tain can only man­age 350 chil­dren that is pro­foundly shock­ing. Bri­tain is bet­ter than this. We have to show our gen­eros­ity of spirit and not turn our back in a race to the bot­tom.”
