Bananas! A 'Scooby Do-villain' Government running out of ideas
Relaunch Week for Johnson and Co. is just more hollow trite and plagiarised catchphrases from a spluttering Prime Minister
It was several months ago where I said that the ‘Rwanda Plan’ was likely to unravel in the courts. Hopefully it will - and at the very least it’ll be beset with challenges every step of the way.
At least one sincerely hopes that it will.
But there’s something odd going on here. Something insidious.
It’s almost as though the plan was designed in such a way that the Home Office would know that it’d be challenged in the courts.
Whether the matter is taken to the courts and the government wins or loses, seems irrelevant, then. Whether Prince Charles is said to be “appalled” by the plans seems irrelevant, too. They’ve even managed to offend - well, God, it seems, as the Archbishop of Glasgow The Most Reverend William Nolan described the plan as “morally wrong.”
The point, I gather, is that it had to be taken to the courts to begin with.
And this is perhaps one of the more important aspects of the whole travesty - and purported for the purposes of distraction.
It doesn’t matter if they’ll likely have to rip up laws on modern slavery to get it through the legislative process, or even if Rwanda’s own negotiator is explictly stating that Rwanda isn’t being used as an offshore processing centre and rather a place for refugees to be reintegrated into Rwandan society.
The Daily Mail explains it all:
Literally, it seems that the government [and the Mail] has taken a page out of the Scooby Do book of bad policy-making decisions to vilify those in the legal profession - again - by using this as any excuse to say, “...and I'd have gotten away with it had it not been for you pesky, meddling lefty lawyers."
