The state of the UK

Post by Scot Dutchy » Wed Jun 17, 2020 6:50 am

As I have maintained the UK government has not got a clue who lives within its borders. This official acknowledgement of that fact.

Home Office 'has no idea how many people are in the UK illegally'
A new National Audit Office report has exposed gaps in evidence for key aspects of immigration policy


The government’s policy of making life intolerable for people who are suspected of illegally entering the UK is yet to show that it can persuade them to leave, Whitehall’s spending watchdog has found.

The National Audit Office said that Home Office officials admit that they have no specific evidence to show the “compliant environment” policy – the successor to the “hostile environment” that led to the Windrush scandal – encourages voluntary departures or fosters compliance with visa and passport conditions.

In a report issued on Wednesday, auditors also pointed out that the Home Office has not updated its estimate of the size of the illegal population for 15 years, and that nearly two-thirds of immigration enforcement detainees are released from detention without removal.
All based on estimates. :fp:
In Europe countries have some form of registration which while being not 100% does give a far better picture of who actually lives within their borders. Many also have some form of ID cards.

Air Force One for Boris? RAF plane for VIPs gets a union jack makeover
The prime minister’s plane, also used by royalty, is getting a new paint job costing £100,000 plus

The RAF VIP plane used by Boris Johnson and senior members of the government to travel around the world is to have its grey livery repainted red white and blue in a makeover estimated to cost more than six figures.

The Union Jack-inspired paint job for the Voyager aircraft comes two years after the prime minister complained about the dullness of its former colour.

When foreign secretary, Johnson said: “What I will say about the Voyager, I think it’s great, but it seems to be very difficult to get hold of,” before adding: “And also, why does it have to be grey?”

Downing Street confirmed that a Johnson-inspired makeover was under way, while defence sources added that the plane is being repainted at a specialist secure hangar run by Marshall Aerospace near Cambridge.

What a clown:

Johnson's global Britain fantasies offer little distraction from school meals own goal
The PM said there would be no U-turn on free meals but along it came, thanks to Marcus Rashford

hings fall apart. So what would you do? The Office for National Statistics has just announced a rise in unemployment of 600,000, with many more expected to be out of work in the coming months. The economy has tanked by 20%. The UK has turned into a world leader in coronavirus deaths per head of population. The Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has just skipped past the defence of Grant Shapps and Thérèse Coffey to set up the prime minister with a tap-in own goal on free school meals. You’re also worried that Harry Kane will now enter the Brexit talks and nutmeg you with an extension to the transition period.

Ordinarily you would expect Boris Johnson to do nothing. Partly because he’s naturally lazy and the idea of leaving Downing Street to sort out the chaos brings him out in a cold sweat. But partly also because Boris is at his best when he says nothing at all. He’s yet to find a situation that he can’t make worse by opening his mouth.

On this occasion, the prime minister chose to deal with the ongoing shitshow by going to the Commons to make an entirely unnecessary statement on his proposals to merge the Department for International Development with the Foreign Office. Just imagine. You’re in the middle of the worst global health pandemic for 100 years, the economy is falling apart all around you, children are going hungry and the most important item on your agenda is an entirely pointless departmental merger that no one except a few Tory ultras was calling for.
The problem for the UK is that the opposition is no better.

The problem with illegal immigrants is they break all kinds of laws.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

No wonder. "When Mexico sends its people, they're not sending their best. They're sending people that have lots of problems, and they're bringing those problems with us. They're bringing drugs. They're bringing crime. They're rapists."
So you talk about mobs and the working classes as if they were the question. You've got that eternal idiotic idea that if anarchy came it would come from the poor. Why should it? The poor have been rebels, but they have never been anarchists; they have more interest than anyone else in there being some decent government. The poor man really has a stake in the country. The rich man hasn't; he can go away to New Guinea in a yacht. The poor have sometimes objected to being governed badly; the rich have always objected to being governed at all. Aristocrats were always anarchists. - G.K. Chesterton

Legal immigrants don't have a lot of luck in this country either...
The Home Office is being investigated over whether it breached equality law when it introduced the “hostile environment” immigration measures that caused catastrophic consequences for thousands of Windrush generation residents living legally in the UK.

As part of a drive to end the “systemic and entrenched race inequalities that exist in our country”, the Equality and Human Rights Commission will use its legal powers to examine whether, and how the Home Office complied with the public sector equality duty, when it implemented tough new immigration legislation aimed at making life extremely difficult for undocumented illegal immigrants.

The EHRC will assess whether the department considered the likely impact of its policies on the Windrush generation, particularly in the wake of warnings from legal charities that many in this group had no documentation and were consequently likely to be badly affected by the new policies.

Thousands of people who came to the UK entirely legally in the 1950s and 1960s found themselves wrongly classified unlawful residents, in the wake of tightened immigration legislation introduced when Theresa May was home secretary.

As a result many lost their homes, were sacked from their jobs, or were denied healthcare and in extreme cases, some were detained and deported. An independent review into what went wrong, the Wendy Williams Lessons Learned review, published in March, concluded that the Home Office demonstrated “institutional ignorance and thoughtlessness towards the issue of race”, and prompted an apology from the home secretary Priti Patel...

I thought illegal immigration was a human right in the UK...

Ya, I guess the US isn't the only country that treats illegal immigrants differently. Can you accuse the UK government of separating families? Kids in cages?

And all because of the laziness of the UK government. Just get a proper registration system. It saves so much.
