The hostile immigration environment Theresa May set out to create when she was at the Home Office was regarded by some ministers as “almost reminiscent of Nazi Germany” in the way it is working, the former head of the civil service, Lord Kerslake, has said.

So much for 'oversights' and 'clerical errors'........

Do give it a rest.

As far as I see it this is a combination of two things:

1. Administrative cock-up in the 70s leaving the Windrush dependents without documentation proving their right to remain (I'd have gone further and granted them all citizenship, but that's just me)

2. May's adoption of an aggressive environment for illegal immigrants - that, in my opinion, is a completely correct policy. illegals should be feeling unwelcome and under threat of deportation, and there should be at least some level of responsibility on employers to ensure the people they are hiring are legal residents. The point is that (as in 1) these people should not be showing as illegals

If 1 hadn't happened, 2 is not an issue.

It seems there are attempts from all over the place to make this party political, whereas it's been an issue, unaddressed by any side, for over 40 years, it's just more robust policing of illegals has brought it to the fore and it should hopefully now be addressed (finally)

Yep. Good post.

 


Optimistic as ever

Excellent post. The real issue here is a bad decision made in the 1970s by the government that has only come light now because of the crack down on illegals.

The lesson to be learned is that people (not their fault) should not be allowed to settle in this country without proper documentation. We need a robust policy for EU Citizens post Brexit.

We want a policy that is fair, easy to implement and understand. We must make it clear that every EU citizen who wishes to stay must register. We must bombard TV, Radio, Newspapers and social media explaining their rights and how they can apply for residency. The policy should be so good that in 10 years time if someone claims they didn't register because (insert reason) that a judge will say that is on you and not the government who did everything in their power to tell people to register.

However I am not brimming with confidence the Home Office does not have a good track record.
