Tory MP David Davies, who wants dental checks to verify the age of child refugees, has criticised Lily Allen for having “tears in her eyes” over their plight.
Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme this morning, Davies said people should not be “carried along on a tide of emotion” about the refugee crisis.
Earlier this month, Allen visited the migrant camp in Calais known as the “Jungle” and met Shamsher Sherin, a young boy from Afghanistan trying to reach Britain.
She told the 13-year-old: “It just seems that, at three different intervals in this young boy’s life, the English in particular have put you in danger. We’ve bombed your country, put you in the hands of the Taliban and now put you in danger of risking your life to get into our country.
“I apologise on behalf of my country. I’m sorry for what we have put you through.”
