200 asylum-seeking children go missing – Tory MP says they should not have come to UK illegally

A new low: Jonathan Gullis (the unmasked bearded man in the background) [this is a stock image].

At Prime Minister’s Questions, Labour MP Tulip Siddiq drew attention to the fact that, despite the UK being considered a safe haven for vulnerable children, there are 200 unaccompanied asylum-seeking children missing from UK hotels.

Rishi Sunak’s comment that the government needs to end the use of hotels for unaccompanied children, “and that’s what government plans will do,” was sinister enough – he meant the plan to stop asylum-seekers from getting into the UK would ensure that fewer will be here in need of housing.

But from the backbenches, Tory MP Jonathan Gullis apparently shouted, “Well, they shouldn’t have come here illegally!”

That’s Compassionate Conservatism for you: let children go missing – kidnapped? Made into slaves for criminal gangs, for purposes that one flinches from considering? – because they should have stayed at home, possibly to be exploited in similar ways by their own countryfolk?

One can only agree with Peter Kyle: The Conservatives have found a new low.

And here’s Mr Kyle’s tweet:

Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

    Hey Jonathan Gullis the refugee children did not enter the UK illegally rather your fascist tory fake government are the criminals because they refused to ensure these children’s security and welfare.

    Gullis is an example of the cruel and callous mindset of the fascist tories in power who continue to claim they are ‘compassionate and fair!’ Except their ‘compassion and fairness’ only extends to stealing our public money via their so-called VIP routes and ensuring the cronies don’t pay taxes on their extortionate wealth!
