And I'm waiting for when, as you say, Scotland can do whatever the fek it wants.As I said, I’m not so much in favour of it as you think I am. But anyone who tells me that I cannot decide on the destiny of my own country can fsck right off.

Pleased to see that asylum is finally being blocked for people who have travelled through safe countries.
Ministers have quietly changed immigration rules to prevent people fleeing war or persecution from claiming asylum in the UK if they have passed through a “safe” third country, prompting accusations of a breach of international law.
From 1 January, claims of asylum from a person who has travelled through or has a connection to a safe third country, including people coming from EU member states, will be treated as inadmissible.
Nice move from Priti Patel. I think she admitted somewhere that her parents might not have been allowed under current immigration rules.Finally? It was announced last year.

There hasn't been any traction at all though.Finally? It was announced last year.
BoJo government motto is 'Can I be stupider than a x-grader' so that is not a problem.Possibly, but it might also make the UK look stupid if it’s judged to be illegal under international law (which a few commentators feel it is) or requiring an agreement with the prior safe countries to accept returns (post Brexit will France be all that amenable to the idea?).
Could argue that as the UK no longer has access to EU funding to process asylum seekers (including housing them, etc, until decision are made) as part of the Dublin Regulation, it may even be easier to send them back to where they came from (the EU). Also, I imagine our mandatory quota for the number of refugees we HAVE to take in every year falls away as we're no longer a member state?Possibly, but it might also make the UK look stupid if it’s judged to be illegal under international law (which a few commentators feel it is) or requiring an agreement with the prior safe countries to accept returns (post Brexit will France be all that amenable to the idea?).
