UK set to criminalise illicit refugee crossings....

I thought the word Conservative covered that ?

We also have to remember that not really sorting this 'crisis' is a great ploy for distracting frothing of The Shires, from the awful behaviour of the present government in other spheres.

Processing asylum claims efficiently so that the majority (80%) whose claims are eventually allowed, can get on with living and working here legitimately - is not nearly such a provoking a headline for the populist press is it??

So instead just mess about putting some UK plod on the other side of the channel, rather than sorting out safe routes, accepting our fair share of refugees as we agreed to, and process claims properly and swiftly.

Brilliant bit of victim blaming by Cruella....

Asked who was to blame for the backlog of cases at Manston, Braverman said she did not want to “point the finger of blame” at any home secretary.

“I tell you who’s at fault, it’s very clear who’s at fault, it’s the people who are breaking our rules, coming here illegally, exploiting vulnerable people and trying to reduce the generosity of the British people – that’s who’s at fault,” she said.


And she's a lawyer? They set the bar low these days....

Yet in her responses to the committee she admitted that, unless you are from Syria, Ukraine or Afghanistan, the *only* way to seek asylum in the UK is by reaching UK soil - which her government refuses to accomodate.

It’s quite clearly the UK Gov’s fault, nobody else’s.

The Tories are consummate liars.

It was a Tory MP who asked the questions.

Select committees are so much better at holding the Government to account than the debating chamber, where they just avoid the questions.
