In a new video from the Home Office page on Twitter, a new video was launched showing Priti Patel witnessing the arrest of alleged people traffickers being arrested.
In the video, Priti Patel said: “it’s vital that we smash up these criminal gangs. Inaction isn’t an option.”
Though this video has been put out, and I’d like to be confident in Priti Patel’s words, inaction on our southern border continues.
People traffickers earn tens, if not hundreds of thousands of pounds a day to supply boats and access for migrants to enter Britain illegally.
The old mantra needs to be used here. We need action on our southern border crisis, not tough words on a video. Once people see action, confidence may start to rise in the Priti Patels words.
