Rishi Sunak’s respect for the Supreme Court is non-existent

Rishi Sunak and his priorities: he appears to be apologising for getting them all wrong; if only that were true!

Rishi-washy Sunak has been talking to the nation. What a shame the content of his speech was so disappointing.

He started by saying that while he did not agree with the Supreme Court’s decision that deporting unexpected migrants into the UK to Rwanda is unlawful, he respected and accepted it.

The rest of his speech went on to demonstrate that he neither respects nor accepts the court’s decision.

Instead, in defiance of the court’s ruling that Rwanda is not a safe destination for refugees, he said he would introduce “emergency legislation” that would enable Parliament to “confirm Rwanda is safe”.

That means he intends to pervert the system in order to produce a false outcome; the court has ruled that Rwanda is not safe – it is not going to become safe because of a law change here in the UK.

He said he expects flights to Rwanda to start in the spring of 2024. This is to disrespect and deny the Supreme Court’s ruling that flights to Rwanda should not happen at all.

He said the government will “engage with a process of reform” with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) – but he would “not allow a foreign court to block our ability to get these flights off”.

For the record: the European Court of Human Rights was created to enforce the European Convention of Human Rights, a treaty drawn up in the aftermath of World War II, largely written by British civil servants and lawyers, which protects civil and political rights.

It is literally a product of the UK legal system and calling the ECHR a foreign court is highly debatable.

Sunak also said the “British people’s patience can only be stretched so thin” – and “they expect the boats to be stopped”.

The words of this politician stand on their heads!

He says he respects and accepts the Supreme Court’s decision, then outlines how he disrespects and denies it, and intends to circumvent it.

He says the European Court of Human Rights is foreign, denying the fact that it enforces a convention that was mostly written by UK lawyers.

And he says the British people’s patience is being stretched, and the British people expect the boats crossing the Channel to stop – but he means his own patience is stretched, and he expects the boats to stop.

It’s lie after lie with these phonies.

    For an in-depth look at Rwanda’s recent past Do Not Disturb: The Story of a Political Murder and an African Regime Gone Bad by Michaela Wrong (2021; 4th Estate, London — ISB: 978-0-00-823890-2) is well worth a read.

    It certainly doesn’t suggest a country where refugees are in any way likely to feel any safer than where they may have originally come from.

    Fascist carpet salesman Sunak and his fascist tory party believe one law exists for them and a totally different one for us peasants and refugees!

    Fascists create new laws in order to justify their dictatorships and carpet salesman Sunak is doing the same. He claims to be speaking/acting for majority of individuals living in UK but he doesn’t he merely speaks/acts for his fascist tory rabble who hate refugees.
