Today was another shameful day when the UK state sponsored human trafficking project to Rwanda was backed by 320 parasitic Conservative politicians.
What the Conservative political gangsters in the UK have failed to tell the public is that the main cause of the migration of small boats is bad politics and regimes that do not respect the law. There’s no doubt that 80% of those taking the dangerous journey to sea are persecuted by politicians. And here we are, the conservative political class doing the same thing, disrespecting the highest courts in the land, using political criminality to send the most traumatised people to a country that has a history of brutalising it’s own citizens and refugees.
Its very pathetic that the British Conservative party has paid lip service to its compassionate mantra. Therefore, by putting gangster politics before compassion will definitely result in the Conservatives being thrown out of government by the conscious British public.
Despite warnings from his own MPs that the plan was ‘fatally flawed’, Britain’s unelected Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, shamelessly pushed the inhumane and ungodly plan through the House of Commons.
Dozens of rebels backed down at the 11th hour, fearing they would bring down the government if they voted against the Rwanda Safety Bill. In a gruelling showdown in the Commons, Tory MPs, including Suella Braverman, warned that the legislation wouldn’t work – but not enough of them voted against it to torpedo it.
The bill was passed by 320 votes to 276 – a majority of 44. Following days of threats from right-wing factions, only 11 Tory MPs actually voted against it, including Ms Braverman, Robert Jenrick, Sir Simon Clarke and Sir Bill Cash. A further 18, including former deputy leader Lee Anderson – who dramatically quit the party in protest on Tuesday – right-winger Jonathan Gullis and former prime minister Theresa May, did not cast a vote.
Brendan Clarke-Smith, who resigned alongside Mr Anderson because he said the bill wasn’t strong enough, still voted in favour of it. Jane Stevenson, who also quit her role as a junior member of the government to support calls for the bill to be strengthened, also voted in favour.
The backdown came after 61 Tories, including Mr Jenrick, Lee Anderson, Ms Braverman, Liz Truss, Sir Jacob Rees Mogg and Sir Iain Duncan Smith, backed a call to strengthen the bill in vain. After weeks of Conservative “psychodrama”, Labour branded Mr Sunak “in office but out of power”.
Worse for the PM, new polls show most voters don’t think It’ll stop small boat crossings. Rwanda’s Dictator Paul Kagame said he was frustrated by long delays – and hinted he might refund British taxpayers’ money if the flights never took off – as the Tory civil war unfolded in Westminster.
There are limits to how long this can go on,” Dictator Paul Kagame yapped. In his yapping: “The money is going to be used for the people that are going to come. If they don’t come, then we can give the money back”.
The Rwandan regime spokeswoman Yolande Makolo later cast doubt on the remark. She said Rwanda was “under no obligation” to return the money. If there is a request for a refund from the UK, “we will take it under consideration”. She added that this would only apply to a portion of the funds that were specifically earmarked for the support of migrants.
Labour’s demand for the money’s return was a slap in the face to Mr Sunak. The UK has given Rwanda £240m so far, with another £50m due in April.
The government has refused to say how much more it has promised. But it has confirmed there will be annual payments in 2025 and 2026 – thought to be £50 million a year. Shadow home secretary Yvette Cooper said: “Instead of dragging this Tory asylum chaos out any longer, if Rwanda says we can get the money back from this failed scheme, Rishi Sunak should seize the opportunity.”
Ms Braverman, the sacked former home secretary, said the bill was “fatally flawed” and called for it to be strengthened in a bruising Commons clash. She told MPs that two previous Tory efforts to stop the boats had been a failure, adding: “This is the last chance we have for a solution to this problem.
“We’ve exhausted the British people’s patience.” A group of 45 disgruntled Tory MPs met in the run-up to the crunch vote, with one rebel source saying: “There is no-one in the room who thinks it’s going to work.”
But hardliners backed down, fearing that voting against the bill – which declares Rwanda a safe country despite serious human rights concerns – could bring down the government.
The public hasn’t been won over, according to a poll published by YouGov. It shows that 53% of people have no faith that the deportation scheme will stop the boats, while only 28% have faith that it will. And 47 per cent think it doesn’t represent good value for money.
The government plans to recruit 150 judges to hear appeals in a desperate attempt to make the plan work.
Crime victims already face long delays in getting their cases to court, and this has sparked outrage.
Calling it “shameful and shabby”, shadow immigration minister Stephen Kinnock added: “Imagine if you were a rape victim who has been languishing in our broken justice system for years how the Prime Minister’s glib announcement would affect you.”
He said that the Labour Party would be ‘proud’ to vote against the bill, which is expected to be savaged by peers in the House of Lords. Mr Kinnock told MPs the Rwanda deal had “taken on a life of its own” but added that it had only been put forward to save Boris Johnson during the Party gate scandal.
And Ms Cooper accused the Tories of trying to “hoodwink” the electorate by comparing it to the emperor’s new clothes, saying: “People can see through it, the home secretary is just wandering around naked in this chamber, waving a little treaty around like a fig leaf to hide his modesty behind it.” She went on to accuse Mr Sunak of being “appointed but not empowered”.
The former leader of the Lib Dems, Tim Farron, said it was nonsense for MPs to declare that Rwanda was safe, despite a High Court ruling in November that it wasn’t. According to him: “I could declare Blackburn Rovers back in the Premier League and Alan Shearer 30 years younger in a number nine shirt if we’re going to declare Rwanda safe. But sadly that’s not the case.
Alison Thewliss of the SNP said: “This is nothing more than state-sponsored trafficking in human beings. This government is effectively a criminal gang. They are moving people around the world.
The blatant defiance of the highest British courts of law by Rish Sunak and his gangsters is a sign of criminality at the highest level. For heaven’s sake, who doesn’t know that Rwanda is one of the most brutal and evil countries in the world?!
