Today, On TalkRADIO, Mike Graham went on a rant about the state of Britain, saying currently “we are living in a country where you can come here illegally, but it’s illegal to leave”
Mike Graham then passed that question over to Nigel Farage, who said: “It’s a 5,000 pound fine if you leave the country, if go to a Calais to load up your boot with wine and you haven’t gone for a proper business reason, you can be fine. 5,000 quid”
Doesn’t this get to the had fact about where we find ourselves as a country? We have been told we’ll get a £5000 fine if we leave the UK without a good reason, yet if someone crosses the English Channel illegally, currently they can stay in the UK till further notice even if they test positive for Covid.
Nigel Farage continued talking about immigration and exposes what Priti Patel missed in her speech. Nigel said: “We’re still signatories to the European convention on human rights, and all the while we are, that law is superior to our own law. And so it’s literally going to be impossible to start deportations on any serious scale.”
“I’m Priti Patel didn’t even mention that fact once in the house of commons yesterday. But it’s okay. It’s okay because we’re going to get tough. So all the backbencher’s chair, the newspaper editorial, they’ll say, isn’t it wonderful and conservative voters can rest easy in their beds.”
“And we see this again, and again and again, ever since she became home secretary back in my summer of 2019, it’s almost as if the rhetoric of her statements rides in direct proportion to the number of those illegally living in the United.”
We will soon see if Priti Patel is telling the truth about coming down hard on this crisis when summer is in full swing, and the migrant boats continue to cross the channel. Will the boats be turned away? We will soon find out.
