Pride's Purge

(not satire – it’s the Tories!)

Teenage A-Level student Yashika Bageerathi was forcefully separated from her mother and deported alone yesterday.

No doubt aware of the strength of local feeling on the issue, Yashika’s local Tory MP David Burrowes had called for the Home Office to stop her deportation saying they were “far from compassionate” and that it was “compelling she should stay”.

Funny that.

Because just over a year ago, Burrowes was full of praise for the coalition’s new hardline on immigration and saying the government’s stricter immigration controls would “improve the integrity of our immigration system“:

Local MP welcomes new immigration controls

Is that the bitter taste of regret or just the sickly smell of hypocrisy I detect from Mr Burrowes?


Please feel free to comment.
