The UK Government’s Rwanda Scheme has been declared unlawful by the Supreme Court. A huge blow for Rishi Sunak’s Government.
Will our Government get back the millions of pounds we paid up front to Rwanda ?
What next ?

Would it have been a deterrent ? Those interviewed in France trying to get small boats to the UK said it wouldn’t stop them ! There seems to have been the possibility that some of the asylum seekers would have been returned to their home countries and where they would have faced ill treatment and maybe death. ‘A substantial risk of harm.’
How much would it have cost to keep the asylum seekers in Rwanda.?
Then there was the question of the reciprocal agreement to have ‘a portion’ of Rwanda’s difficult to settle and vulnerable refugees here in the UK. ( Section 16 of the agreement ). Maybe it would not have been such a good idea.

Well you can't pin it on Suella as she is no longer in the Cabinet. It's Lord Cameron's problem now.

These offshoring schemes rarely have the desired impact and cost a fortune, as we have found to our cost, both to our Treasury coffers and our reputation. Neither, as we also found out last week, can you hold people in indefinite detention in those off shore facilities just for trying to seek asylum, prisons really.

I think it is the new Home Secretary’ James Cleverly’s problem now assisted no doubt by Lord Cameron.

You are of course correct, Lord Cameron is just the Foreign Secretary and I assumed he would have the diplomatic task of smoothing things over with Rwanda, Cleverly is the Home Affairs guy and was Foreign Secretary, not sure which part of this mess he would prefer.

Lord Cameron as Foreign Secretary will undoubtedly have to smooth things over with Rwanda. I wonder what Cleverly will come up with to stop the boats ? I think he will be more measured in his approach in comparison with his two female predecessors.

The PM remains committed to stopping the boats. The UK has already paid the Rwandan Government £140 million pounds for the Rwanda Plan proposal. What a shameful waste of money. It was never going to work as a deterrent. Personally, I am not comfortable with ‘off-shoring’ even though I am aware some of the people arriving on the boats are economic migrants. In amongst them will be some of the most vulnerable people in the world seeking asylum.

Unlawful it may be, and i always thought the scheme was horrific, but as a deterrent, it would have worked very well.

Imagine how few asylum seekers would want to come to the UK knowing they were likely to be shipped off to Rwanda!

He better be quick , don't forget the 8 million a day on hotels ... I hear they are looking for another country to send them too ? Russia has plenty of space ... Now that would deter them ...B)
