Ms Cooper's odious "we'll take ten thousand..."

How has Yvette Cooper arrived at the number of 10,000 refugees, displaced persons and asylum seekers to be given access to the United Kingdom? : http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/sep/01/yvette-cooper-uk-should-take-in-10000-refugees

Is it not immoral and cowardly for her to pretend that we can choose between the deserving and the undeserving refugees?

Especially as the ones who fight their way into Europe are the rich, connected, pushy refugees.

The poor and destitute have been left behind.

The government's policy is one of very generous aid to refugees in settlements close to their country of origin so that everyone is helped in a fair and equitable way.

This is by far preferable to Ms Cooper's odious "we'll take ten thousand and the rest can go fuck themselves".
