Home Secretary Priti Patel and her Home Office would with today’s rules and laws blocked her own parents from entering the United Kingdom. This means, if the rules that she has set fourth and made into law would make it impossible for her to become a Member of Parliament and Minister. That says something about how draconian the laws has become.
The newest Immigration Bill will make it impossible and illegal for refugees and asylum-seekers, which doesn’t come through resettlement schemes. That means the ones who flee war, famine and political prosecution faces not only lack of protection and neither able to re-unit with their families. The ones helping the refugees and asylum-seekers are also facing the law.
We also know that the United Kingdom, the Tories and Patel has in addition signed an agreement for “offshore” operation in Rwanda. This is all in combination and shows the viciousness towards immigrants in the United Kingdom. The UK who has at one point colonized nations, islands and whatnot across the world. Is now blocking the world from coming home.
Patel and the Conservative Party of the UK is showing it’s lack of tolerance, respect and value of life. As they are so openly cruel, inhumane and so deeply flawed. This is really an attack on immigration, the rights of asylum-seekers and refugees.
That is the plan and aims of this, as they are wanting to have laws to ensure the asylum-seekers and the ones coming can be detained, returned or sent to a Third-Country instead of getting visa or become naturalised into the United Kingdom. Because, with this sort of laws, the UK is legitimately only allow the ones with paper or ability to file it really. Unless, they are allowed through the processing of the United Nations. While the rest can be sent away or be destined to uncertainty in Rwanda. This is how it seems and what they are willing to do.
The United Kingdom is clearly becoming unfriendly and an island fortress. Because, it is really rich to know that the parents of Patel wouldn’t have gotten through this system. She is basically targeting her own and the kind who came before. This would have blocked the Windrush Generation and others who has come to the UK.
That is just showing how the UK has become. This a result of the independence after Brexit, as the European Union (EU) wouldn’t have accepted these rules and neither would the EU organizations. It is just bound to happen and would have become hostile between Brussels and London. Now, it is just London against the world. While the UK has to adhere to the Withdrawal Agreement with the EU. Nevertheless, the UK and the Tories shows how heartless they are.
People thought the UK-Rwanda deal was a just a one-time thing. No, it is a part of system and legality of which the Tories are changing things. Patel and her Home Office just shows what they are willing to do. This is people in need, fleeing and trying to get away to a safe place. The UK isn’t that place, but a new hostile environment.
The Tories, Patel and everyone who aides the London Government right now. Just shows their insincerity and how they are not concerned about the plights of the asylum-seekers or refugees. The UK is showing the world what sort of state it is, as they want to ensure only the allocated or the ones they are abided to keep after international law is getting there. The rest is after own needs and not if people need protection. Because, they can be easily banished or blocked from entry, possibly even arrested or arrest the one giving them shelter. Also, ensuring the asylum-seeker doesn’t try to or is able to bring his-or-her family to re-unite in the UK.
If that isn’t telling and showing what sort of government there is in London right now. Nothing is and its vicious, brutal and inhumane. That’s who is ruling and running the Home Office right now. A sort of person that is making laws, which her own family and parents would have become qualified to enter. If that isn’t saying something. Nothing is… remember that. Patel’s own family wouldn’t get entry or get visa to the UK in 2022. Yes, they came before these laws and such, but it sets a precedence. Peace.
“h. “Relocate” means the removal of an asylum seeker from the United Kingdom to Rwanda under this Arrangement” (Memorandum of Understanding between the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the government of the Republic of Rwanda for the provision of an asylum partnership arrangement, 14.04.2022).
If you ever thought the arrangement between the United Kingdom and Rwanda was for the betterment of humanity or for the justice to asylum-seekers. I hate to tell it to you… but this deal or Memorandum of Understanding only shows what sort of plan is at play. The Tories and the HM Government have ensured the asylum-seekers are sent and “relocated” to Rwanda. So, that they are banished from their territory and only the ones who they request for will be available to return to United Kingdom. However, that doesn’t seem to be a real possibility in this.
I have just taken a few paragraphs and sentences from the MoU between the nations and it states very clear what the objective and the ideals of it is. We can wonder, if anyone will be lucky to return to the United Kingdom or even be considered for a request. That sounds like a stipulation only made to ensure some legal grounds and possibility, which will not be enforced. Since, the agreement is about directly “relocating” people from the UK to Rwanda. Not the other way around…
“The objective of this Arrangement is to create a mechanism for the relocation of asylum seekers whose claims are not being considered by the United Kingdom, to Rwanda, which will process their claims and settle or remove (as appropriate) individuals after their claim is decided, in accordance with Rwanda domestic law, the Refugee Convention, current international standards, including in accordance with international human rights law and including the assurances given under this Arrangement” (Memorandum of Understanding between the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the government of the Republic of Rwanda for the provision of an asylum partnership arrangement, 14.04.2022).
“In order to expedite the process of relocation to Rwanda in a timely manner, the United Kingdom will be responsible for the initial screening of asylum seekers, before relocation to Rwanda occurs in accordance with this Arrangement. This process will start without delay after the prospective relocated person arrives in the United Kingdom and has come to the attention of the United Kingdom” (…) “The United Kingdom will arrange the Relocated Individual’s transport to Rwanda and will ensure that all the necessary authorisations have been obtained from the relevant authorities of the United Kingdom, any countries of transit and Rwanda in relation to the traffic of commercial or chartered flights or other means of transport” (…) “Following a request made by the United Kingdom, Rwanda will take all reasonable steps in accordance with international human rights standards to make a Relocated Individual available for return to the United Kingdom should the United Kingdom be legally obliged to facilitate that person’s return” Memorandum of Understanding between the government of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the government of the Republic of Rwanda for the provision of an asylum partnership arrangement, 14.04.2022).
This here agreement is made to ensure asylum-seekers and people seeking refugee in the United Kingdom can be sent to Rwanda. The agreement specifies that and it’s obvious about that too. There is no denying in that.
We know that the Tories don’t mind the regime and their lack of concerns of their human rights abuses. The Tories don’t mind how the opposition, dissidents or even government critics gets handled in Rwanda. Because, the Tories with this here deal gets to send their unwanted people packing and with a destination in mind. Where they have to take care and find homes for. That is what is in the deal and this here MoU.
They don’t care if the Rwanda Patriotic Front (RPF) is known for silencing, murdering or assassinating the ones who strays from their path. No, that they pay no mind or isn’t concerned about. We know the Tories just want people gone from their borders and sent packing.
This is why the UK is screening them before sending them away. That means the processing will not be happening after that and most likely not return to the UK. This was the plan all along… Rwanda to takeover the burden of the people or asylum-seekers that the UK doesn’t want. Peace.
“And let’s be clear, Rwanda is one of the safest countries in the world, globally recognised for its record on welcoming and integrating migrants” – Prime Minister Boris Johnson (14.04.2022).
It is really weird and out of this world that the British Prime Minister in 2022 says Rwanda is one of the safest countries in the world. What is even more striking is that the Travel Advice from the UK government mentions street crimes does occur and asks tourists to be vigilant (Updated on the 12 April 2022). While you should be worried and concerned about the security situation in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Burundi, as violent armed attacks can happen. Especially, in Nyungwe Forrest and Volcanoes National Park or travel near DRC/Burundi border regions. So, just by reading the own travel advice on “Rwanda” it cannot be seen as safe as he states.
We know that President Paul Kagame rules with an iron fist. He has no mercy and can easily silence anyone. It doesn’t even matter if the individual who has offended him or challenged him is living in the diaspora. The Rwandan government will come after you and take you down. That’s why it’s like the Tories have closed their eyes for this and just praises Kigali.
It is like Johnson doesn’t know how the elections are or how the voices of dissent is silenced. I don’t think he cares and only wants an easy way out. The migrants and asylum seekers can be shipped to Kigali and then left to fight for their own. Since, they we’re dumb enough to go and try to find shelter in London.
Like when he said this: “This is particularly perverse as those attempting crossings, are not directly fleeing imminent peril as is the intended purpose of our asylum system. They have passed through manifestly safe countries, including many in Europe, where they could – and should – have claimed asylum” (Johnson, 14.04.2022).
So, when someone has achieved that and struggled to get to Dover or whatever. What is meeting them is a ticket straight to Kigali and Rwanda. A country of human rights violations and a bloody dictatorship under President Kagame.
For the ones fleeing to safety and to a possible safe-haven, from conflict, famine and destruction in their homes. They are sent to a place of no free press, no free speech and no liberty. In a place of one-man rules all and his words are law. A place where Kagame is the demi-God and you are not even allowed to make political cartoons of the man. Heck, if you compose critical songs or whatnot. You can expect a terrible demise or a sudden death. If you try to compete in an election against him. Expect to lose your businesses, livelihood and become a “criminal”. Because, the state will target you and you will lose everything. That is the price of challenging Kagame.
It’s really weird that Boris Johnson says this about Rwanda. As he continues to praise them even further: “And that is what I think is most exciting about the partnership we have agreed with Rwanda today because we believe it will become a new international standard in addressing the challenges of global migration and people smuggling. So I am grateful for Rwanda’s leadership and partnership and we stand ready to work with other nations on similar agreements, as well as wider reforms to the international asylum framework” (Johnson, 14.04.2022).
He is speaking of this like it is a brilliant idea. It is a reckless and disgusting policy. As he blames other nations for not taking them in. As the asylum-seekers should have applied in other nations of Europe before going to the United Kingdom. While his praising the greatness of Rwanda, which isn’t true. The dying dissidents, the modus operandi of arbitrary arrests, torture and extra judicial killings. Should be a slight concern for anyone transferring migrants and asylum-seekers in dire need.
However, for Boris and his government… this sort of deal and agreement is groundbreaking. Because, he is able to stick this problem on Rwanda and they have to shelter these people. Who comes unannounced and who has dared to flee their respective countries to get into safety on the British islands. No, they are not worthy, only the ones who goes through UN Organizations or the ones who are able to meet the stipulations of the Home Office can get shelter in the UK. That’s how it sounds and the ones coming by boats will be sent on a “one-way-ticket” to Kigali.
You can really wonder what is going on in London. As they are willing to break with humanity and become this cruel. Where they are not understanding the plights and the reasons for why people flee. Take the dangerous trips and try to enter the UK.
No, there is no concern over that and sending the ones fleeing dictatorship, war and famine. Those are the ones your sending to another dictatorship. Such a Noble enterprise of the United Kingdom. That’s how callus and heartless the Tories are these days. Peace.
“The UK’s upfront investment of £120 million will fund opportunities for Rwandans and migrants including secondary qualifications, vocational and skills training, language lessons, and higher education” (The New Times (Rwanda), 14.04.2022).
The Tories and the United Kingdom government has made arrangements that is beneficial for the UK. The UK is paying the Government of Rwanda to relocate migrants, which would have asylum seekers on a one-way ticket to Kigali. The UK government is paying Rwanda to take care of and be responsible for the ones seeking refuge in the United Kingdom.
This is for London to avoid and be able to re-locate asylum-seekers. They are outsourcing the asylum-seekers and Rwanda is sent their for processing. This means that they will not be on UK territory while waiting their cases. They will be sent and banished from the place they are seeking refuge. That is really a despicable move and the Rwandan government is getting financial benefits of doing this. They are doing UK a service to be more hostile against refugees, asylum-seekers and put up a fortress around the British Islands.
Home Secretary Priti Patel has deliberately signed an agreement, which is according to the sentiments of her government and the “independence” of the United Kingdom. A sort of arrangement that would be harder to justify as a member of the European Union. As they are not only sending people to the first “Third Country” of entry in the EU. However, they are sending them far away to a location, which the asylum seeker didn’t try to get to or wanted to reach.
UNHCR defines asylum-seekers: “An asylum-seeker is someone whose request for sanctuary has yet to be processed. Every year, around one million people seek asylum. National asylum systems are in place to determine who qualifies for international protection. However, during mass movements of refugees, usually as a result of conflict or violence, it is not always possible or necessary to conduct individual interviews with every asylum seeker who crosses a border. These groups are often called ‘prima facie’ refugees” (UNHCR – Asylum-seekers).
This is to send the channel-boat crossing migrants on planes and flights from the United Kingdom. So, that they cannot stay on-site or in the nation until their cases are processed.
Patel says this herself about this effort: “This government is delivering the first comprehensive overhaul of the asylum system in decades. At the heart of this approach is fairness. Access to the UK’s asylum system must be based on need, not on the ability to pay people smugglers. The demands on the current system, the cost to the taxpayer, and the flagrant abuses are increasing. The British public have rightly had enough” (Patel, 14.04.2022).
They are not making the system fair, but transferring the asylum-seekers and migrants to another destination. This is a deterrent and a measure of which to scare people from coming. Because, if they come… they will not get into a safe-haven in the United Kingdom, but will instead be at whatever sites and housing, which the Rwandan government is accommodating them with. The UK government knows this and makes the UK less accessible.
The Rwandan government is by doing is a favour and becoming a “modern” Australia. Where the people who is outcast from the UK will come to Rwanda. The asylum-seekers was seeking shelter and a home in the UK. They did not go all the way and try to cross the British Channel to live in the refugee camps of Rwanda or whatnot. Therefore, this is a despicable move and a deliberate act to scare off people. This is showing what sort of solidarity and lack of understanding of the plights of the people fleeing conflict-zones, famine and destruction. Which don’t have the ability or resources to seek visa and stay outside their native countries by regular means. Therefore, the UK is doing this to ensure the asylum-seekers picks other destinations and not travels to the UK. As if they do…
They will take a flight to Kigali and be stuck in East Africa. Which isn’t what they sought after, but what the UK government will do to you. If you dare cross without the right paperwork into the UK. Peace.
The Conservative Member of Parliament and Home Secretary Priti Patel isn’t new to controversy or scandal. She has been in the wind before and had to resign as late as in 2017. The then International Development Secretary held 12 secret meetings with Israeli Prime Minister, Other Government Figures and Conservative Lobbyist. All of this secrecy and breach of ministerial code lead to her resignation in then Prime Minister Theresa May’s time.
Now, in the middle of a downturn economically in the United Kingdom. Not only the economic hardships that has the world as a result of the global pandemic. However, also as a result of the Brexit and Withdrawal from the European Union (EU). The UK is facing much more harder financial and economic realities in the near distant future and even in present time.
That is why a Conservative and a Minister should uphold the highest standard and not misuse its office. As it is a privilege to already be representing the constituents and later get the honourable office of a Secretary position in the Cabinet. That is what Patel should have considered and even thought. However, her own actions just last and the revelation of spending. Shows that she is reckless and doesn’t value her station.
During the last year she has already been saved by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson as he has kept her. In the middle of the scandal, in which, she was alleged to have bullied her staff in the Home Office. There was even a supposed cover-up of a report in which it stated her breaches of Ministerial Codes. This have yet to be released, but shows how far Johnson goes to defend her and keep her in the cabinet.
Priti Patel can clearly do whatever she sees fit. There is other standards for the Windrush Generation and the ones who caught in the scandals concerning them. These folks are just chavs and can easily be replaced. Nevertheless, a prestigious and honourable like Patel deserves her role and office.
That is how it seems. Now she can spend money willy-nilly without any consequences. Can pamper herself. Buy expensive stuff and just use the Home Office for personal perks. There are so many benefits and these wouldn’t even be spent on the ones suffering on Benefit Street. No, she can have luxurious eye-lashes and whatnot. It will be spent on the public’s dime. Because, she deserves it. While school-kids cannot even get a lunch-meal worth eating. Patel on the other hand can go a pub in Oxford and other posh restaurants. It must be splendid to live the life of Priti Patel.
A person who can cause so much self-inflicted damage and still be saved by the Prime Minister. A person that can breach the Ministerial Code time and time again. While others have to take their cross and go. She on the other hand can use a small fortune treating her hair. If not, just have a bargain of a tasty cupcakes.
Priti Patel have a knack for this sort of behaviour. Where she gets into trouble and someone else has to save her. I wonder if Boris Johnson will be able to downplay or even get her out of this. Now it might be different.
Still, I doubt this will cost her the Office. She will be the Home Secretary. When he could bury a report. The same man can easily let her off the hook her too. Peace.
The Home Secretary Priti Patel yesterday (22.02.2020) launched the Blue Passport with the ‘Iconic blue passports return next month’. It is hard to see what there is to celebrate. Other than its an imported Polish passport, which has the colour blue. Like the colour gives the passport unique power.
It is like the United Kingdom is okay with mediocrity. Because of Brexit, they are okay with symbolism. They are okay with a colour scheme on a official travel document over the value it actually has. The UK are losing a lot with the withdrawal of the membership in the European Union. They are losing rights to reside, work and being part of customs unions for the trading of goods too.
Therefore, the whole idea of celebrating that with the temporary status and saying its a victory to get it blue. Is really naive, if not foolish, unless you want propaganda brownie points. Like its a big deal to change the colour of the passport.
The passport only has value as long as it opens up to visa and travelling opportunities. By the ranking of the Passport Index its at the 28h placed. It is also in the Power Rank of the 5th, meaning it is ranking behind plenty of states. This means the colour isn’t all that important.
The Home Secretary should look into why there are 27 passports ahead of the UK and why the citizens of the United Kingdom doesn’t have the ability for mobility like the ones above it. This is the key thing for this sort of thing.
If the Home Secretary doesn’t see that, she is either delusional or not configured her job. However this is how proud she was and it doesn’t make sense.
“Home Secretary Priti Patel said:
Leaving the European Union gave us a unique opportunity to restore our national identity and forge a new path in the world. By returning to the iconic blue and gold design, the British passport will once again be entwined with our national identity and I cannot wait to travel on one” (UK, 22.02.2020).
What would be unique would be to enter new visa agreements and give an edge for the citizens mobility. So, that the Passport Index would be better. Like think about getting it up one Power Rank even.
The Home Secretary Patel seemingly more into symbolism, than actual significant change.

Tories are blue,
