Suella Braverman’s tough words on Rwanda show she means business
Finally a flying start for Suella?
There is no doubt about Suella Braverman’s determination to deport migrants to Rwanda by the summer.
The interior minister’s harsh words yesterday show that she means business.
She says she’s closed loopholes and “nothing is off the table” to get the planes flying.
This is a shot across the bows of the left-wing lawyers who have repeatedly thwarted their plan.
It is also a warning that the government is not afraid to take on the European Court of Human Rights.
There has been a significant change since the last attempt failed.
In December, the Supreme Court ruled that the plan was lawful and did not violate the UN Refugee Convention or human rights law
Encouragingly, Rwanda also says it is “ready”.
The African nation proudly says life there will be a privilege, not a punishment.
If this scheme works, two things will happen.
First, it will crush the deeply evil human smuggling industry.
Second, it will encourage other countries like Denmark and Germany, which are already studying similar systems, to follow suit.
Of course there will be howls of moral outrage.
But Rishi Sunak knows the outcome could make or break his premiership.
And is there anything more moral than putting a stop to the traffickers?
It’s sprayback time
THERE are few sights more annoying than streets defaced with pointless graffiti.
The shameless spray can vandals cause damage in the millions.
They corrupt entire neighborhoods and turn them into seedy crime hotspots.
Strict new rules forcing yobs to clean up their artless doodles within 48 hours of being caught could make a difference.
Ordering these anti-social thugs to quickly clean up their graffiti could be a first step in tackling street crime in general.
Railway bunglers become loco
YOU would think rail bosses could be busy improving their terrible train services.
But ridiculously, they’ve found time to jump on the woke bandwagon and order employees to use gender-neutral terms like “traffic cop” instead of bank officers.
How does this help commuters fight fare hikes, cancellations and strikes?
We wonder what happens to employees who do not comply with this dictate.
Will they be platformless?
