Brighton and Hove Liberal Democrats

Incompetent Home Secretary's latest inhumane proposal!

April 14, 2022 12:52 PM
Priti Patel has proposed sending asylum seekers to Rwanda for processing. B & H liberal Democrats echo the description of politicians who describe the idea as "evil and inhumane". How can a civilised country choose to send such people all the way to an African country for processing.
According to the Guardian newspaper "Andrew Mitchell, the Conservative MP for Sutton Coldfield and a former chief whip, said the new approach was "globally unprecedented" and raised questions around how it would work and how the government would safeguard human rights."
B & H liberal Democrats call for Home Secretary to be sacked. Australia abandoned the policy of sending refugees abroad as a failure. So how does Priti Patel think it is going to work? It is one more example of just how incompetent a Home Secretary she is proving to be and calls into question why she is allowed to continue to hold office.
