Polski Sun signals hope?

"The trouble with the world is not that people know too little, but that they know so many things that aren't so" said Mark Twain and it rings very true to me when I think about the migration debate all around the world. Last week I read a very bizarre story in the Sun about 12 people who lived in the attic of an empty house in the Midlands, and how new tenants were scared when they discovered them. What was interesting to me is that these 12 people who subsequently disappeared were labelled as 'Kosovan' and 'Illegal'. How this was established it is not known, but it was reported. Two days after this story, I thought I was dreaming when I saw the Sun in Polish. Finally, a group of migrants have been recognized as a market. There is hope.
