Refugee question thoughts
at 22:53 25 Jun 2022

I received a reply from my MP about the Rwanda deportation policy and in it they claim "Since 2015, over 185,000 men, women and children seeking refuge have been offered a place in this country, which is more than any other similar resettlement scheme in Europe. This includes almost 100,000 British Nationals Overseas threatened by draconian security laws in Hong Kong, 20,000 through the Syrian scheme, 13,000 from Afghanistan, and around 50,000 Ukrainians."

My big question is, do British citizens leaving Hong Kong to come here count as refugees?

Is the headline figure that we have resettled more refugees than any other similar resettlement scheme in Europe remotely true? Haven't Germany alone taken many times that figure?

Is my MP misrepresenting figures or where am I misunderstanding?

Telegraph headline "Rail workers inundate voluntary redundancy scheme ...

Why would workers being keen to take redundancy rather than work under the mew conditions be in opposition to one another? Surely the fact there are many who would rather take redundancy is supportive of the idea that operating the service with fewer staff is not attractive to the staff!

It is almost like they want to misrepresent the motives of the strike action.

Aren't they asylum seekers who have not yet had their case heard? A bit emotive and misleading to describe them as illegal when they have not faced any trial or had their cases heard isn't it?
