The Home Office’s first flight as part of proposals to offshore asylum seekers in Rwanda was cancelled.

The Government can’t blame anyone but themselves, and it is incredibly misleading for the Prime Minister to suggest lawyers who bring legal challenges against the Government are doing anything other than upholding the rule of law.

I believe the Rwanda asylum scheme is cruel, extortionately expensive, and risks making dangerous people trafficking worse. By chasing headlines, Boris Johnson is abandoning British values and pursuing an unworkable plan while failing to improve asylum decision making or crack down on criminal gangs.
