Braverman’s migration failures: highest-ever number enter UK despite her closure of legal routes

Speechless: challenged to explain how a teenage refugee from an African country might legally gain asylum in the UK, Suella Braverman had nothing to say.

More than half a million people entered the UK from abroad in the year to the end of June – and Home Secretary Suella Braverman had a meltdown in a Parliamentary Committee when she was forced to try to explain the legal routes for refugees to do so.

So the highest annual migration into the UK since World War II has happened at a time when it should be impossible.

Here’s a news report:

Prime minister Rishi Sunak has said that his main priority is to help Home Secretary Suella Braverman stem the flow of migrants into the UK (despite the fact that they are both, themselves, from families that migrated into the UK).

But they also want to present the UK as a welcoming place.

The latter objective was blown to dust – by one of Sunak and Braverman’s own Conservative Party, Tim Loughton, in the Commons’ Home Affairs Select Committee, when he asked her a simple question.

The best commentary on it that I have found comes from Novara Media:

This is a government that is trying to do two mutually-exclusive things – and failing at both.

    What a surprise – not – there are no ‘safe legal ways for refugees to enter the UK!’ In other words fascist xenophobic and racist little england refuses to even allow any refugee to legally enter the UK!

    Well done fascist tories for implementing ‘no refugees welcome here in the UK!!’

    How many individuals have migrated from the UK to other countries during 2020/2021??? Unsurprisingly there is no focus on the numbers of individuals willingly leaving sinking little backwater known as UK!!!
