Labour united in having no answers
SIR KEIR Starmer thinks he has the luxury of sitting on the fence as the Tories tear themselves apart over Rwanda.
This is not just the arrogance of an opposition leader confidently measuring up the curtains for Number 10. It is a dereliction of political responsibility.
As we reveal today, the Left-wing government in Denmark have shown that migration is a core issue that no party can afford to sweep under the carpet.
Their Immigration Minister Kaare Dybvad Bek puts it perfectly: “If you want to be a party of the working class and middle class, you have to ensure that migration has a manageable level.”
Their policies have sent asylum admissions plunging in Denmark — even as they surge in Britain.
But Labour, which opened the floodgates to uncontrolled migration, is a million miles from forming its own credible alternative to the Rwanda plan.
Why does Sir Keir think he can carry on ducking an issue that is key to his voters?
As Danish MP Rasmus Stoklund says: “The part of society that bears the brunt of unchecked migration is the working-class population.”
Meanwhile, rebellious Tory right-wingers are also planning to derail Tuesday’s vote on the Rwanda Bill.
They must put their opposition to one side, heed the PM’s appeals for unity and back the bill.
Voting it down would only light the fuse for Tory self-destruction.
KEMI Badenoch last week warned of the “epidemic” of children who are being told they are transgender.
The Equalities Minister admitted she was “traumatised” by what was happening to pupils amid fears that schools are being swamped with LGBT propaganda.
At the same time leading charity Brook, which last year received nearly £7million of public money, is recommending that teachers wear transgender badges and insists that “transitioning is almost always a positive process”.
The phrase comes in educational material offered by the charity. The question is: who in government is monitoring this irresponsible advice — and why is nobody trying to stop it?
Shamefully, the Department of Education’s long-promised guidance to schools on gender issues has been repeatedly delayed.
It needs to be published as a matter of urgency.
