The United Kingdom is doing more than any other European nation to help Syrian refugees

Is the British civil service knifing the Conservative government in the back through deliberately inept PR handling of the Syrian refugee crisis?

Under the Conservatives the United Kingdom is doing more than any other European nation to help Syrian refugees and yet none of this is getting publicised.

Instead, the UNHCR representative publicly attacks the British government - despite the UN operation round Syria being largely funded with British money.

It is time for some serious ass-kicking (as the Americans say) - the UN needs to be told they must start being more appreciative of the United Kingdom in front of the press.  The UN also needs to be told to improve conditions in the camps so refugees do not want to leave.  Otherwise we will take the money away and set up our own camps, using private contractors (and we have a total foreign aid budget of £11 billion to do this if we want to).
