Solving the Migration Crisis
“We’ve all seen the pictures. With every dinghy that arrives in Dover, the scale of illegal immigration into the U.K. becomes concerning. With it, the scale of the solution required to solve this problem also increases in magnitude.. Of course, Britain has always been a safe haven for those blighted by conflict and division. We have proud record of operating a humane and safe asylum system, designed to protect those fleeing genuine persecution and war. Havering has welcomed many Ukrainian refuges into our community and rightly so. However, the system has been abused by those who are not genuine refugees under any reasonable definition of the term or international convention. In particular, a well-organised and potentially dangerous Albanian mafia have established a base in Northern France and have facilitated the movement of 12,000 Albanians illegally into Britain. Yet there is no War in Albania – a state which, remarkably, is an accession country to join the European Union! Free market liberalisation has brought wealth and prosperity to our country ever since Mrs Thatcher’s reforms for the 1980s, but the rise of social liberalism, without an understanding of responsibility, the decline of the family unit and polices that have led to uncontrolled immigration have not helped to create a better society for working people . The liberal metropolitan governing elite who feel instinctively comfortable with accepting large scale immigration and regard the debate about stopping it as merely a ‘culture war’ are not in touch with what the vast majority of the British people think. I do not believe we cannot simply sit back and pretend that some subjects are too difficult to discuss for fear of upsetting people. This is one of those topics. Rishi Sunak and the Government must show that they understand how most British people feel and take action to protect the interests of our country.
On 24th November 2021 alone, a girl aged 5 and her teenage siblings were among 31 people who died after their dinghy sank in the worst maritime disaster in the Chanel for 30 years. The journey is not only illegal – it is also not safe, and puts all the power in the hands of people smugglers and people traffickers. Our government need to act – and fast! To solve the migration crisis, the British Government should adopt a radical approach. We need to urgently review our relationship with the European Convention of Human Rights by repealing the Human Rights Act. This would allow our parliament to take back control from foreign judges and give Ministers more power to introduce new laws in the British National Interest. We must reform the Modern Slavery Act to close any legal loopholes which are currently being exploited by gangs and people traffickers, whilst at the same time negotiate more Rwanda style agreements to provide a deterrent. The people of Britain losing patience. There is no time to waste, Prime Minister!”
