“Rwanda Plan Key for Migrant Crisis, but Left Criticize Solutions”
THERE are a lot of people who talk about “the law” who don’t seem to much care for it.
In the past year, ever since then Home Secretary Priti Patel announced her Rwanda migrant plan, the Left in this country has been in overdrive.

The plan is against the law, they say.
Last year, when a plane with a few dozen illegal migrants on it was due to take off to Rwanda, central Africa, it was stopped at the last minute by meddling human rights lawyers and left-wing activists.
All appealing to an anonymous judge in Strasbourg.
As I say, it is interesting because these people who talk of laws pay no attention to our own laws.
They do not seem to think it even a subject of interest that 40,000 people came across the Channel illegally last year alone.
That is 40,000 people breaking the law.
Piece of stupidity
The open-borders Left always tries to pretend that everyone who breaks the law by entering this country illegally from France is an asylum seeker.
They couldn’t be more wrong.
Most have no legal right to be in the UK.
All have travelled through multiple safe countries before heading here.
They come to Britain not because it is the only place they can flee to but because they believe it is the most comfortable country to be in.
As similar border crises in Australia, Europe and America have shown, there is only one way to stop such flows of people.
And only one certain way to make sure that the numbers do not grow.
That way is to deter people.
To make it clear they are breaking the law and that if they spend their time and money trying to break our laws it will be pointless.
That is one of the things that makes the Rwanda plan so important.
It will discourage people from paying smuggler gangs to bring them from France to Britain.
It will encourage them to realise that if they get to our shores they will not stay.
Of course, the open-borders, know-nothing Left has decided that sending people to Rwanda is like sending them to a Nazi death camp.
We already know that the brilliant mind of Gary Lineker got stuck in this piece of stupidity.
He was joined over the weekend by another airhead, radio shock-jock James O’Brien.
I don’t listen to O’Brien’s show and cannot access his tweets.
He blocked me after I exposed his campaign to promote the lies of paedophile Carl Beech.
Fortunately I know one person who is not blocked by snowflake O’Brien.
So I was able to see his weekend “campaigning” in its full glory.
There he posted a photo of Home Secretary Suella Braverman laughing while visiting a deportation facility and claiming she “hopes to deport trafficked victims of modern slavery” to this place.
It portrayed an evil woman.
It is worth pausing to wonder why Braverman gets up the noses of people like O’Brien so badly.
It is because she is not behaving as people like him think she should.
Dare to be an independent or conservative-minded ethnic minority woman and unhappy men like O’Brien will come at you while shouting “feminism”.
As it happens, the photograph in question was doctored.
Specifically, the lefties cropped out the two Rwandan counterparts Braverman was sharing a joke with.
But it doesn’t matter, because truth has never detained people like O’Brien.
And won’t do now.
Happily this doesn’t matter, because the public is on the side of the Home Secretary.
A poll out last week from the Independent (hardly a bastion of the right wing) showed that 42 per cent of the public support this specific plan.
Only 25 per cent oppose it.
That is already a striking difference of opinion.
But what matters most is what happens next.
Because much of the public will be watching and waiting.
If the Rwanda plan (among other measures) works, then the public will reward the Government in the opinion polls and at the next election.
If the Government can stop the mass law-breaking on the south coast then the figures will improve even more for.
And that would be a great thing, not just for the Government, but for this country as a whole.
It would also bring a second benefit — which is that it would show up the Labour Party and others on the left.
As was shown this weekend, these angry activists are not very good critics.
Not even very good insulters.
But what they are even worse at is coming up with answers.
The Government, by contrast, has come up with an answer.
For the sake of the country, we must hope that it works.
