‘Loudmouthed lawyers’ jibe shows it’s the Home Office that doesn’t know when to shut up

Devilish advocate: Priti Patel has set her Home Office against the rule of law.

What unbelievable arrogance from “a government source” – as quoted, we’re told, in The Times.

After the Home Office was forced to withdraw a video tweet referring to “activist lawyers”, that was posted in retaliation after solicitors prevented Priti Patel’s thugs from illegally – mark that word – deporting 23 asylum-seekers without appeal, what did the Tory government have to say for itself?



“There’s a bunch of particularly loudmouthed lawyers and barristers who seem to spend more time on social media than representing their clients.”

This is arrogant disregard of the rule of law.

Perhaps the “government source” who said this should be named and removed from Whitehall to a place where they can do no more harm.

Ms Patel should be rushing to Whitehall, to deliver a grovelling public apology to the lawyers mentioned – who can all be identified very easily – and to the nation.

Really, she should be resigning as she has clearly allowed standards at the Home Office to fall far below what is expected in a government department.

Not only has this matter been a scandal but it has also been revealed that the Windrush Compensation Scheme is being bungled because Home Office officals have an “institutional ignorance and thoughtlessness towards the issue of race”.

Patel is responsible; unlike wealth, this is an instance where the “trickle-down effect” really does work and, as the novelist Henry Fielding implied in the 1740’s, the poison seeps down from the top.

But Patel won’t go. Her kind believe they are entitled to their bare-faced, flaunting immorality.

    I’ve said it before, keep giving them all the rope they will greedily grab, sit back and wait for the self-induced throttling.

    Like the others, Patel believes she is invincible but wait a little longer and their true natures will be undeniable even to their supporters.
