Jamaica deportation: will the Tories go ahead after appeal court decision?

Doing a runner: Priti Patel leaving the Commons to avoid a question about the Windrush-style deportation of people to Jamaica (not really, but she did run like a coward when David Lammy asked her about it).

The Court of Appeal has advised the Tory government not to deport 50 people to Jamaica until it has confirmed they have all had access to advice from lawyers.

But will Boris Johnson and his bandits accept that advice?

Consider the way Priti Patel swanned out of the Commons chamber, while David Lammy was asking her an urgent question on the subject.

Former Labour leadership candidate Clive Lewis also demanded that the flight should be stopped.

It is racism, if their convictions are suspect and they haven’t had access to a lawyer. And if the Home Secretary can’t answer a simple question about it.

But as I write this, it seems unlikely the Tories will stop the flight. They think they can do whatever they like, to anyone they feel like. Are they right?

    I’m astonished that this is happening. Is there bad blood between Pakistanis and West Indians in the UK or something? One thing’s for sure, at least the former will be safe with this Home Sec (& Chancellor)…

        Actually I take it back. They won’t be any safer with Patel & Javid in the cabinet. Tories are equal opportunity sadists! No, I’m not racist. I just despise BAME Tories even more than white ones. Y’know, Uncle Tom types…
