Establishment racism: Non-verbal black teenager who has never left UK detained at immigration centre

Priti Patel: it seems she’s so racist, she will merrily try to deport black people, even though they are UK citizens. She just won’t carry out the proper checks.

This is beyond This Writer’s ability to comment. The level of racism displayed by the UK authorities in this story is off the scale:

A woman has described how her 17-year-old black British son was found at an immigration detention centre after going missing while being treated for psychosis.

The boy – who is non-verbal – disappeared from a hospital in Kent, where he had been sectioned under the Mental Health Act, on 7 April. Two days later, he was arrested by British Transport Police (BTP) at Euston on suspicion of fare evasion, before being detained by Immigration Enforcement near Gatwick, despite being British.

“It’s just horrific,” the boy’s mother said. “Because he’s black they just assumed ‘let’s pick him and put him in a deportation centre’.”

When the boy was returned to the hospital, his clothes contained Home Office documents that incorrectly stated his name and date of birth, and recorded his nationality as Nigerian.

“How do they know he’s from Nigeria, when he doesn’t even speak to them?” the woman said of her son.

The boy is a British citizen and has never left the UK. His mother said he would not have been able to say his date of birth properly, and would never have said he was from Nigeria.

James Wilson, deputy director of Detention Action, which works with people facing removal, said unaccompanied minors or children under the age of 18 should not be in detention in the first place. “In theory detention should be an absolute last resort, rather than an early step you would go to,” he said.

This is a prime example of how Priti Patel’s Home Office treats UK citizens, isn’t it?

Let’s consider the Home Office’s comments on this case…

A Home Office spokesperson said: “We rely on information provided by our policing partners when an individual is referred to Immigration Enforcement. In this case, the individual declared himself to British Transport Police to be an adult male. Police nurses assessed him and raised no physical or mental health issues.”

Yeah, but did they? Really? a non-verbal 17-year-old?

I have a doubt about that.

I don’t think the person declared himself to be anything at all.

I don’t think nurses assessed him in anything like an adequate way.

do think that this case reveals serious failures in Home Office procedures.

And I think it is Priti Patel’s responsibility to sort them out.

But I don’t think – for a single minute – that she is in any way capable, or responsible enough, to take the necessary steps.

Patel is trying to use Liverpool terror bomb bid to strip YOU of YOUR HUMAN RIGHTS

Priti Patel: if she really wants to stop terrorism by people from foreign countries, she can do something about it right now. What she’s actually trying to do is strip YOU of your hard-won human rights.

Home Secretary Priti Patel has said the suspect in the Liverpool suicide bombing was able to exploit the UK’s “dysfunctional” asylum system – a system that she runs.

Oh, but wait! Apparently this was because he came to the UK in 2014 – when former prime minister Theresa May was Home Secretary. So it’s all her fault!

And we know that May forced Patel out of her cabinet when the current Home Secretary was found trying to operate her own foreign policy with the apartheid state of Israel, back in 2017. So there’s no love lost there.

It all seems like a burst of frantic ass-covering to This Writer.

And I’m not the only one:

The fact is that the Tories have been in charge of the immigration and asylum system for 11 years and have talked tough about it all the way through.

If a terrorist was allowed to stay in the UK for seven of those years – when he should not have been – then that is the responsibility of the current Home Secretary who has failed to correct the faults of previous incumbents.

If they were honest, the Tories would admit that they are trying to make us accept their sick plan to destroy UK human rights.

They say repealing the Human Rights Act would make it harder for illegal immigrants to stay in the UK – but they don’t admit that it will also remove all the other rights that protect us.

For the gory details, see what This Site has published about it here and here.

The vast majority of the rights you will lose have nothing to do with illegal immigration, asylum or terrorism.

But you can rest assured that the vast majority of you will be harmed by their loss.

Will Priti Patel’s new immigration Bill put her in conflict with the Queen?

The Queen: she has given the RNLI a Royal Charter to rescue anybody at all whose life is in danger on the sea near the UK. If Priti Patel wants to criminalise this activity, it seems likely that she will come to grief.

It’s a thought that would make a normal UK minister pause – but Priti Patel is not normal, and I mean that in the most unkind way possible, so This Writer is keen to see how events unfold.

Patel’s draft Nationality and Borders Bill, clause 38, potentially criminalises rescuers of asylum seekers if they are deemed to be “facilitating” their arrival in the UK.

Clause 38 amends the 1971 Immigration Act offence of assisting an asylum seeker, increasing the maximum sentence to life imprisonment, from 14 years, and removing the words “for gain”, which previously limited prosecutions to paid people smugglers.

This is potentially very bad news for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, which has vowed to continue rescuing anybody its crews find to be in danger at sea off the UK’s coast – no matter what their legal status may be.

This is in line with International Maritime Law and with the United Nations’ Safety Of Life At Sea (Solas) convention.

Crews could face imprisonment for life, according to the legislation.

The Home Office has said the Bill is intended to target “ruthless people smugglers” and organisations like the RNLI – and individuals – would be allowed to continue humanitarian rescue work.

But if that is the case, why amend the law to criminalise all rescues rather than merely those carried out “for gain”?

So, as George Peretz QC states, “Mere assertion doesn’t cut it.”

Here’s where it gets really interesting, though: The RNLI is mandated to carry out its rescues by a Royal Charter issued by its patron – The Queen.

That’s why it has the word “Royal” in its title.

The charter means the RNLI is permitted to rescue anybody whose life is in danger on the sea off the UK’s coast – by order of the Queen.

Does legislation by the Commons have authority to override that?

I don’t know. I think Patel needs to re-write her bad law to avoid finding out.

I wouldn’t want to be in her shoes if she tried to force the issue.

Let’s call Priti Patel’s immigration Bill what it is: The Anne Frank Law

Who thought that, decades after fighting a war against the people who caught and murdered Anne Frank, the people of the UK would vote in a regime that would do the same?

“Tories have introduced an Anne Frank law, that means if someone hid Anne Frank in their attic [in the UK] today, they would be prosecuted as a criminal.”

It is not a good day to be #JacobReesMogg

Rees-Hitler: he lacks the moustache but his attitudes are in line with the Nazi dictator.

What a prize-winning public school chump.

Jacob Rees-Mogg tried to be down with the kids by quoting England football anthem World in Motion, but instead only demonstrated that he was up his own nationalist rectum.

The comment from Russ Jones on Twitter was entirely deserved:

And the humiliation does not end there for nanny’s boy Jacob.

He also went on the record in support of Priti Patel’s new anti-Immigration law:

This is the Bill that could send members of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution to prison – for life – if they even try to save the lives of refugees in danger of drowning while trying to cross into the UK.

It is the Bill that turns the UK into a full-on Nazi country because

Clearly Rees-Mogg is the anti-Semite in this situation. Priti Patel is the anti-Semite for pushing this Bill through the Commons.

They are clearly both racist to the core – and he’s a hypocrite too:

Never mind her antics: Priti Patel would have DEPORTED members of the England football team

Priti Patel: this is a more accurate representation of the image she should have had on her shirt.

Priti Patel really has a nerve.

Only a few days ago, she was saying she saw nothing wrong with racist football fans booing the England Euro 2020 squad for ‘taking the knee’ before its matches.

That was before Gareth Southgate’s team won a place in the final, of course.

Now look at her:

Just wait until somebody tells her that her idea of good immigration law would have denied eight of the 11 team members their place in the team she now supports so fanatically:

As it is, she seems intent on criminalising the Royal National Lifeboat Institution with her proposed new laws to stop us saving refugees from death. Get your head around this:

Here’s the relevant part of the legislation:

That’s right – for seeing somebody in desperate need and saving their life, you could be imprisoned for the rest of yours under Patel’s (and her boss Boris Johnson’s) dictatorial, fascist regime.

Perhaps the worst indictment against her is that she can’t deny that her proposals would have outlawed initiatives like the Kindertransport that saved hundreds of Jewish children from Nazi death camps by bringing them to safety in the UK before the outbreak of World War II:

I wonder how well that plays with her friends in Israeli politics?

Of course, that law hasn’t been enacted yet, so we can all enjoy this:

Final word:

So much for Patel.

If you want to admire a political figure who supports the England team in an honest way, here’s the Left’s Grace Blakely:

Pidcock nails Patel over racist Tory system that criminalises immigrants

The BBC’s Politics Live had a little discussion of the incident in Pollokshields, Glasgow, when two men facing detention ordered by Priti Patel’s Home Office were released after residents turned up en masse to help them.

It seems Patel is planning to expand her detention facilities. Why’s that, then?

Patel’s Orwellian newspeak only highlights the Immigration Bill’s Tory racism

Smug: Priti Patel’s parents arrived in the UK when the country had a working immigration policy; under her new Bill, they would never have got in – because they’re foreign, don’t y’know?

“We’re ending free movement to open Britain up to the world”?

What utter, dribbling, gibbering stupidity!

Priti Patel means: “We’re closing the UK to anybody who isn’t rich.”

Skills don’t come into it.

That’s what the minimum income demand means.

An individual’s value to society won’t matter.

Just ask BAME workers at the NHS.

And it’s bare-faced hypocrisy from Patel, a daughter of immigrants:

https://twitter.com/ToryFibs/status/1262459642514456578

Of course the Tories are already victimising migrant workers in the UK – they charge such workers £624 to use the NHS, even if they work for the NHS! Seriously!

 

Perhaps an effective way to present the message would be to show how Ms Patel’s message would come across if it was transferred to one of her other responsibilities:

Tories create sweatshop Britain with zero-hours increase and immigration cut

Sports Direct was roundly criticised for its use of zero-hours contracts. Employers often plead poverty but aren’t these chains big enough to provide proper jobs?

It seems the Tories have succeeded in their long-term plan to ensure that working people are forever living in fear, by making their employment so insecure, and the benefit system so draconian, that they must take any work they are offered, no matter how low-paid.

This seems to be the fact at the heart of this week’s revelations that, although employment figures remain high, the number of people on zero-hours contracts – and therefore unsure that they will be needed for work, let alone paid, is at an all-time high.

It seems 970,000 people are now on zero-hour contracts – that’s an increase of 74,000 in just three months.

They don’t get sick pay or holiday pay.

They can never be sure they will be able to feed their children or pay the bills.

And they can’t just sign onto benefits in between bouts of work because there’s a five-week wait for Universal Credit and any work done may disqualify them.

Peter Stefanovic lays it all out here:

And now we learn that “low-skilled” (by which I think she means “low-paid”) immigrants will be banned from entering the UK by Home Secretary Priti Patel.

This means working people already resident in the UK will be expected to take up the slack, taking part in seasonal work like picking fruit and vegetables and being cast aside after that work is done.

Ms Patel reckons the UK’s eigh million “economically inactive” people can be pressganged into doing this work.

Both statistics quoted by Donwyn here are more or less correct.

But “economically inactive” doesn’t mean “unemployed and seeking work“, and that’s an important difference.

These are people who don’t need to work – so why should they lift a finger to fill gaps in the employment market now?

Of course, employers may find that there simply aren’t enough “low-skilled” workers to go around, on the low pay that they offer.

The excuse for low pay has always been that it was all the employers could afford.

If they start going out of business, I suppose we’ll know the truth of it.

Personally, I think working people will be expected to take on two or three jobs at a time in order to make ends meet.

It’s the ‘sweatshop Britain’ that Margaret Thatcher always wanted.

Oh, Colin! Losing freedom of movement through EU airports is EXACTLY the Brexit you voted for!

Poor Colin Browning! He clearly seems to have voted for Brexit without having the faintest idea how it would work.

For example: leaving the EU means UK citizens no longer have the right to freedom of movement between EU countries and their own.

Officials had warned before Brexit happened that this could lead to long queues in airports like Schiphol, near Amsterdam.

But that seemed to have passed over Colin’s head as he tweeted the following, without a sign of irony:

You can see for yourself the number of replies he has received.

But you really need to read a few. You can find them by searching the Twitter hashtag #OhColin.

There are a lot along these lines:

How about this? See:

Trouble is (for Colin), this is the Brexit reality:

This has been confirmed by Schiphol’s official Twitter feed:

But there are some there, it seems, who still can’t avoid joining in:

But there is a downside and here it comes:

and

https://twitter.com/pgchipperfield/status/1228391387932090369

Fortunately that’s not true.

But there are millions of them out there.

And they’re all in line to have surprises as nasty as that experienced by Colin.
