The UK government's proposed scheme to relocate and evaluate asylum seekers arriving through "unauthorised" routes in Rwanda has received strong criticism.
Critics have described it as a distraction from ongoing scandals and an attempt to incite legal action for culture war purposes.
The scheme has been slammed by the UN for breaching international law, and it is suggested that systematic cruelty has long been fundamental to the UK's immigration and asylum system.
The UK government's proposed scheme to relocate and evaluate asylum seekers arriving through "unauthorised" routes in Rwanda has sparked backlash across the political spectrum.
While some view the scheme as a distraction or means to incite culture war, others are concerned about the potential breach of international law and cruelty within the UK's existing asylum system.
The UN has spoken out against the proposal, and the Archbishop of Canterbury and Labour Leader Keir Starmer have both criticised it for ethical and practical reasons.
The Byline Times suggests that the proposal harks back to post-imperial policies and could become a disturbing reality if implemented.
Overall, the proposal has received widespread criticism and is likely to face significant opposition in parliament and civil society.
