The voices should be heard and an explanation with a legit apology is owed. The "fatherless" children were never without fathers, but the fabrication from the UK gov decided to make lies and twist stories so they have an "excuse" to deport these hard working father figures. So answer it

Thanks for adding your voice.

Regardless that the sailsman had or had not committed any criminal offences, their family should have had the rights to be notified of their happenings.
The impact Peter and those other families had suffered, an apology is nothing but the least!

For all the children left without a Dad. Good enough to fight our wars and supply food, but not allowed to stay here in the U.K.
