PLANS to fly large numbers of illegal immigrants to Rwanda next Tuesday were hit by a legal bomb at the last minute.
Left activists and the Border Force union have thrown flagship politics into chaos with a new showdown in the High Court.
Tories lashed out when it emerged campaigners backed by Labor leader Sir Keir Starmer were behind an attempt to halt the flight and launch a government policy review.
Home Office insiders admitted the chances of the flights taking off as planned are now “very, very slim” and there is a high possibility a judge will order the flights grounded.
The Public and Commercial Services Union joined Care4Calais and Detention Action to stop the flight – up to 130 to Kigali.
About 10,000 migrants have crossed the dangerous canal to get to the UK this year.
Home Secretary Priti Patel ordered her team to work around the clock to prove the plan was legal.
Tory MP Tom Hunt said: “If Care4Calais’ main objective is to take care of this, why on earth are they trying to block a measure that will cripple the evil people smugglers’ business model?”
