How many more will die before the Tories reopen safe, legal asylum routes?

Channel migrants: this photo is obviously not of anything that happened today (August 12, 2023) – but Tory policies are putting people like this in danger every day.

Another day, another Tory tragedy. Six people have died in the Channel – and it could be argued that the Conservative government caused the deaths.

Here’s the story:

There’s a lot of right-wing lunacy circulating on the social media. Never mind that. There’s only one question to be asked and it is this:

How many people would have died today if there was a safe, legal route for people to claim asylum in the United Kingdom?

I think you know the answer is none.

Not only that, but there would be no criminal gangs making money from suffering like we’ve seen today, because there would be no demand for them to help people get across the water.

So these words by Suella Braverman…

… are meaningless.

Bear the following in mind also:

It is Conservative policy for the crossings to continue, for the criminal gangs to make money from the people on the boats, and for some of them to die.

    Of course it is fascist tory policy for the crossings to continue because inevitably refugees will die and the fascist tories will cheer because it ensures ‘those nasty non-humans have been kept out of pristine xenophobic and racist little england!’

    As you know, the very sad answer to your question is “As many as they can get away with”.
    The Right-Wing Media are preventing Public Outcries by Stoking the same Fear, Hatred and Division that was also done in Germany from the late 1930’s.
