The plan to send asylum-seekers to Rwanda has been ruled unlawful by the Supreme Court. The judgement backed an Appeal Court decision that the policy is unlawful under Britain’s Human Rights Act, which incorporates the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) into British law.
As the Conservative party implodes with perpetual infighting, it is obvious for all to see, Rishi Sunak is not serious about solving the problem of the ‘boat people’ arriving from France. Furthermore, the Rwanda plan wouldn’t have diverted even a fraction of the migrants arriving on our shores. Sunak is a cunning, barefaced lying, ruthless globalist!
The Far-left and the courts have taken the view that if someone calls themselves an ‘asylum seeker’ then they must be an asylum seeker. So, they must be protected by Britain’s Human Rights Act, the ECHR, the 1951 UN Refugee Convention, and many other laws.
Firstly, these so-called ‘asylum seekers’ are overwhelmingly economic migrants. They have passed through many ‘safe’ countries to get to the UK. A genuine asylum seeker is under an obligation to seek refuge in the nearest safe country.
Secondly, you may have noticed that the economic migrants (posing as asylum seekers) arriving in boats are all men. Where are the women and children? The Far Left expect us to believe that these ‘men’ are fleeing war, suffering persecution, or living in such intolerable conditions that they just had to leave behind the women and children!
Thirdly, we know that some lawyers are now under investigation for falsifying documents and boasting about how easy it is to manipulate the asylum-seeker process by telling lies.
It is clear what needs to be done. Time and time again, the courts have thwarted any attempt to take back control of our borders.
Therefore, we need to leave the ECHR, and some laws need to be repealed. For example, Section 31 of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 was based on Article 31 of the UN 1951 Refugee Convention. This piece of legislation states that refugees who come to the UK have a statutory defence against certain immigration offences related to document fraud and illegal entry.
Repealing Section 31 is a necessity if we are to control our borders. Many other laws need to be repealed. However, I don’t think that Rishi Sunak has the backbone to stand up to the Far Left. I saw him recently on TV talking about how “we must make sure we meet our international obligations”. How about our national obligations to protect our borders?
