This government has taken a proper grim turn with the language they're using towards the people crossing the channel. It's all a bit nazi.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I dont like how using the term "lefty" in a derogatory way has just been normalised by the PM either. Whichever side of the debate you're on it doesn't really do much for rhe standard of discourse does it.

Well, to be fair to Sunak, Starmer had just had a very good PMQs and he needed to get his backbenchers on-side.

The 21 answer was quite the riposte, however.

They already have, that’s why I’m questioning it. I think it’s someone else who needs to read up. 
 

We still need to get rid of those Billion illegals don’t we 😉

You haven't though.

It's why you keep posing questions that already have answers to them.

Go on lad, use the internet, do your own thinking and research. It'll take a bit of time, but I'm sure you're up to it.

You said they’re working on a new deal. One has been sorted, as I said.  It’s not me who need to look that up

So what happens to a boat full of migrants now then?

Sent straight back to France?

This from the Migration Observatory last week...

The UK has accumulated a large backlog of asylum cases. On 13 December 2022, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak pledged to clear the backlog by the end of 2023.

This briefing note examines what we know about the UK’s asylum backlog, its causes, and its consequences.

  1. Key Points
    • On 30 September 2022, there were around 117,000 asylum applications awaiting an initial decision in the UK, comprising around 143,000 people.
      More…
    • At the end of 2021, the UK had the second-largest asylum backlog in Europe, after Germany.
      More…
    • Despite more asylum decision-makers, fewer decisions were made in the six years from 2016/17 to 2021/22, indicating a decline in the number of decisions made per caseworker.
      More…
    • The time it takes for an asylum application to receive an initial Home Office decision has increased substantially in recent years.
      More…
    • The decline in caseworker decision-making has no definitive explanation, but plausible reasons include administrative issues, and policy changes.
      More…
    • Slow asylum decision-making is financially costly, and there is evidence that it hampers refugee integration.
      More…
    • Proposals to reduce asylum backlogs include fast-tracking some applications and employing more asylum caseworking staff.
      More…

     

    Article includes living costs paid to asylum seekers and the cost of the decline in processing performance since 2016

New legislation, just read the links. I did the hard work for you. 

If you are on about the december deal (I'm assuming you must be) then that seems to be working well for all parties. This is the deal that the Home Office has said does not 'fast-track' any Albanian seeking asylum because of international law. I guess that's why they think we need this new legislation (hence still trying to make it work) which will in no doubt fail, but its a political gamble which if they lose, they win in certain people's eyes.

As has been said,its about the fundamentals of home office work not being done over a long period of time.

It was all there, you just had to give it a once over.

To be fair to @tyldesley_white, Braverman did say there were "likely billions more" who want to migrate to the UK.

So they sorted a deal….. as I said. 
 

We got there.

What’s that got to do with illegals already here? 

Nothing. It was a comment on his mistaken use of "1,000,000,000" instead of "1,000,000" - as I assumed your comment was too. "Pure bants", as your type say.

Imagine being so thick that you believe this shite.

 

I have a sneaking suspicion that she'll be the next leader of the Conservative Party, Sunak will be gone after the next GE, and she'll be in pole position. She knows that what she's suggesting will absolutely never happen, but it plays perfectly to the more "gammony" side of the party and their supporters. Brexit, which got them over the line last time is no longer something they can use, as they've managed to make a bit of a pigs ear out of it thus far (even an ardent Brexiteer like Farage keep banging on that it's a balls up) so their next battle ground is immigration (which they've spent the last 12 or so years absolutely fucking up)
