On last night’s BBC Question Time one audience member took the government to task on the new migrant bill.
Rishi Sunak has announced plans to permanently bar asylum seekers who arrive in the UK on unauthorised small boats.
Robert Jenrick was rolled out last night to defend the government’s plans
The audience member wasn’t having it: “It’s actually not about whether it’s going to work or not, because as stupid as Suella Braverman does sound when she uses words like ‘blob’ or ‘wokerati’ or whatever nonsense she wants to spout, that’s not what they’re trying to do.
Don’t pay tax
“This isn’t even about the actual scheme itself. They’re forecasting to the next election. They can’t run on their governing record, there’s sewage in the rivers, inflation is through the roof, living standards are beyond the floor.
“They can’t run on individuals or personalities. They have ex-chancellors who don’t pay tax. They have another ex-chancellor who knew the currency was going to run, so he told his former employers to bet against it.
“So what do they have left? What they have left is division and this is all this policy is about. They are trying to sow division by casting it as us, the people in Britain, against people who want to come here. And it’s really sad.
“I have faith that people are not are not going to buy it … this also just fundamentally betrays that the conservatives don’t think the way that we do because we think compassionately.”
