The left’s secret prejudices against the Rwanda plan are helping evil traffickers get rich while more migrants die
WHAT are the Left’s secret prejudices against Rwanda?
Why are Labor and Liberal Democrats and hand-wringing churchmen railing against the subterfuges of illegal migrants?
The African country’s high commissioner in London acrimoniously accuses them of “outdated and backward” views of his country.
The liberal-left fantasy that the migrants in small boats are all destitute, frightened refugees seems increasingly ridiculous as some throw stones at the police and others refuse French aid in the middle of the English Channel.
But the narrow-minded, knee-jerk resistance to any solution is even worse.
It just guarantees evil traffickers get rich while more migrants die.
The BBC’s massive public funding has always made its urge to compete with commercial firms an obscenity.
And its relentless expansionism has done immense damage.
Check out the news website that helps ruin local newspapers.
Now it wants to enter the US market and produce news for liberals in order to steal ads and clicks from the New York Times and others.
It insists its commercial arm foot the bill.

We sympathize with top trans cyclist Emily Bridges — though she doesn’t do herself any favors by calling the verdict “genocide.”
In a difficult situation, rightly deviated from the greatest injustice.

The economic problems of the world are due to Covid and the invasion of Russia.
But here, EU fans are wrong to blame Brexit, even staff shortages, even though our population has increased by 606,000 in the last year.
Since we left the EU for good at the end of 2020, every day has been marked by Covid and war, leading to sky-high energy prices and food inflation.
Germany, the engine room of the EU, is on the ground.
Our economy is still growing.
Brexit is demonstrably not the problem.
