We would like to hear from people still in Afghanistan who feel they should be in the UK


A whistleblower at the UK Foreign Office has revealed that thousands of emails from people in Afghanistan related to requests for evacuation were left unread.

Raphael Marshall, a former desk officer, estimated that up to 150,000 people applied for evacuation, but that fewer than 5% of those got any assistance.

We would like to hear from those in Afghanistan who got in touch with the Foreign Office to request evacuation. Do you feel you should be in the UK?
