    What chartered flights? Even the Rwanda airline wants nothing to do with this.

    Where are all the extra judges suddenly come from? Are you pulling then off other cases like rape and murder?

    No interference from Foreign courts. They’re not foreign, it’s the European court of which we, the UK, are a member.

    Labour keeps voting against the bill! Yes, they do but you have the majority in the house of commons and the Lords. It’s the Tory lords voting against this bill because they have the sense to realise how batshit this legislation is.

    Rant over.

      Given the enormous cost per person and the low numbers of people they are shifting, I am sure they could find an old school chum with a spare private jet lying about that they can hire out for an exorbitant fee.

        I’m actually quite surprised that this hasn’t happened and that they’re going with commercial airlines. I wonder if even party donors are reluctant to get involved.

          Or that it needs to be dragged out so they can say “It’s so sad no commercial company will do it, guess we’ll just have to use my wife’s jet at a 300% markup…”

      I do think that it is fascinating that the only Tories with any kind of morals, and let’s be honest any brains, are the unelected ones.

        The tory party used to be much further left than they are currently, More centre right, and many of those ex MPs are voting against this nonsense.

        Once they’re in the lords they needn’t fear the whip and so don’t need to toe the more stupid party lines.
