Suella Braverman is absolutely right in appealing the Rwanda verdict – there is not a moment to lose when lives are at risk

The verdict in Rwanda is bizarre and dangerous

There has been a lot of hysteria on the left over the Court of Appeal blocking Britain from deporting illegal migrants to Rwanda.

But enthusiastic Labor MPs have failed to focus on what actually happened.

Lord Chief Justice Burnett said there was “no real risk” that Rwanda would wrongly send migrants back to countries where they were being persecuted as there were no relevant agreements.

However, the other two judges ruled that there was a risk and concluded that Rwanda was not a “safe third country”.

On this narrow point alone, the court pressed the pause button on Rishi Sunak’s plan.

In today’s Sun on Sunday, the Rwandan government lays out its arguments – it denies it would ever send migrants back to their home countries.

“We are a trusted partner of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees,” the government says.

It emphasizes that UNHCR and other international organizations “have recognized our exemplary treatment of refugees” and “not one” has been sent back to their home country.

Rwanda even founded the world’s only Afghan girls’ boarding school.

Therefore, it is far from clear on which facts the two judges of the Court of Appeal based their damning verdict.

The public has every right to be angry and confused at this bizarre legal tussle, which goes against the will of Parliament.

Mr Sunak and Home Secretary Suella Braverman are absolutely right to appeal this verdict, which should go to the Supreme Court as soon as possible.

Every day this plan is foiled is a day the evil people smugglers continue to profit from their deadly trade.

And as the weather improves, the number of migrants willing to attempt the perilous crossing of the English Channel is sure to increase.

When lives are in danger, there is not a moment to lose.

On the right way

FOR millions of Britons, a car is an essential part of life.

But motorists are being pressured at every turn, from sky-high gas prices to green trucks blocking the roads.

So it’s good news that the competition regulator is likely to create a new PumpWatch website.

This means that drivers can finally compare the petrol prices in their area – and avoid rip-off gas stations.

It’s a big win for our Keep It Down campaign and will help bring real money back to people.

That’s what ministers should focus on – and not crazy net-zero measures that only drive up prices.
