The recent overwhelming flow of illegal migrants across the English Channel is the result of a government trying to deal with the crisis with its hands tied behind its back.
Consider this: for all the criticism the Tories have faced for converting a huge barge to accommodate newcomers, it’s not even big enough to handle Sunday’s total on its own.
Rishi Sunak claims he is reducing the numbers.
But once the channel was calm enough, 616 surfaced in one day.
A barge can accommodate a maximum of 500 people.
Workers claim the problem is our broken asylum system.
It’s the sheer volume that comes because they know they won’t face deportation.
A deterrent will work.
They need to know that they cannot enter and stay illegally.
That they be flown out quickly to safe facilities in Rwanda.
The Migration Act must become law quickly.
OUR editorial above will give the bright-eyed London Mayor Sadiq Khan a fit.
Even referring to illegally arriving migrants as “illegal migrants” is banned by his staff’s crazy new language regulation.
Alongside the predictable annihilation of “men and women”, “asylum seekers” become “asylum seekers”.
What is the difference?
Who does it really help?
From London and Wales we can all see how Labor would govern Britain.
Squats for every fashionable occasion.
We strictly monitor our language and much else to avoid imaginary insults from the supposedly oppressed.
This is where the forces of the Labor Party would flow. And our taxes with it.
THE SNP must think the voters are stupid.
Hardly a day goes by when they don’t call for the suspension or sacking of a Tory MP over an unproven allegation.
When her own ex-leader Nicola Sturgeon is actually arrested as part of a fraud investigation, the rules suddenly change.
Sturgeon will not even be suspended as a member because, according to SNP boss Humza Yousaf, “it is so important that the presumption of innocence is preserved”.
Let’s see him fight for that noble principle next time a Tory or Labor MP is anonymously indicted.
Roo, are you?
The smug House of Commons committee that found Boris Johnson guilty is now gripped by full blown megalomania.
The idea that it should be beyond reproach is absurd and Orwellian.
Whatever you think of the ex-Prime Minister’s Partygate behavior, there is no denying the unfairness of his assessment by Labor MP Harriet Harman, who vociferously condemned him on Twitter.
No MP should risk parliamentary criticism for calling the court a “kangaroo court”.
Not while Britain still values freedom of expression.
