Video: May refuses to answer what she is doing to bring back #Windrush wrongly deported

Amid the justified fury about Theresa May’s decision to lie to MPs and the public about the decision to destroy landing cards that would have prevented ‘Windrush generation’ migrants being harrassed and even deported by the Home Office – and the BBC’s decision to cover for her – one important passage of today’s ‘PMQs’ appears to have gone unnoticed.

Immigration Minister Caroline Nokes admitted to ITV earlier this week that some ‘Windrush’ people had been wrongly deported from the UK. But there has been no mention from Theresa May, Amber Rudd or the government about any plans to identify and locate those unjustly-treated people – or about bringing them back.

Today, Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn asked Theresa directly what she planned to do about it.

Her response was long. It was convoluted. And it avoided any actual answer:

Comment:

If Theresa May had any plans to find and bring back wrongly-deported people, she would have said so.

Instead, she denied knowing of any specific instances and pointedly failed to provide a single word about any planned actions to find them and put it right.

  1. How often can she get away with blatant lying. There was a time when even Tories would fall on their sword if caught out in a lie. Thatcher changed all that and this lot are taking it one step further

  2. Make an emergency order for all to have the right to remain, get that bloke his cancer treatment for free – he has paid into NHS all his life, bring anyone deported back and pay compensation you heartless Tory Bastards! “Bring the Boys (and Girls) Back” – Freda Payne

  3. There must be a dozen ways of confirming how long these victims of an incompetent establishment have lived in the UK.
    Tax, NI, medical records, school records, dental records, employer records, utility bills, council tax, banks, driving licence, court fines, voters roll, solicitors, marriage records, neighbours, police records – for a start.
    The government has the authority to have these searches and the ones I haven’t thought of carried out.
    Leave it to the Home Office alone and they’ll take months if not years.

    Irritating that May had that pat answer ready today – got to anticipate her answers better to pull the rug out from under her.
    People we follow & admire on Twitter etc. are doing a great job already but is the leadership making as much of some of their talents as it could?

  4. So what is the greatest crime? attacking a sovereign State against International Law, thereby becoming a War Criminal or lying to Parliament?
