Quote from: Josquius on September 16, 2023, 02:52:00 AMhttps://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-66804798A day or two olds news but a big political happening of the moment is labour announcing an actual sensible policy to asylum seekers.Hopefully they'll go in hard on how the tories are all about impractical performative cruelty rather than actual practical solutions.As expected however the tories are all over the word EU even being mentioned. After recent years I'm worried but hopefully people aren't so thick as to fail to realise we can't just pretend Europe doesn't exist.

Or even just waive passport and visa requirements?It appears to me this proposal is designed more to square the circle of holding onto voters who want to waive asylum seekers in and those who are squeamish about unfettered immigration.
