Patel refuses to explain herself after Home Office wipes 400,000 police records

Priti Patel and the police: let’s hope one day they arrest her.

Isn’t it suspicious that the Tories keep wiping government records when they’re in charge?

The Home Office is building up a particularly strong reputation for this – first deliberately torching UK residence permissions of the so-called Windrush generation in order to provide an excuse for Theresa May (and her successors) to deport them…

And now deleting 400,000 police DNA, fingerprint and arrest records under Priti Patel.

Patel has said the deletions were a result of “human error” during a “routine housekeeping process”.

Funny how these human errors keep happening to Tories, though.

The arrogant Home Secretary refused to attend Parliament to give an account of her department’s behaviour.

This should come as no surprise. She never takes responsibility for her mistakes.

Look at the time she was trying to deport people (including victims of the afore-mentioned Windrush scandal) and was foiled by people she subsequently described as “activist lawyers”.

Her words apparently induced someone to enter a solicitor’s office and attempt murder on staff members.

The incident would not have happened if Patel had not uttered her inflammatory words.

But she has never shown any contrition for it.
