Labour’s shadow home secretary would like to inform everyone how she would treat the country’s laws should we ever have the misfortune to see her in that position:
We will probably never know if any of the Grenfell survivors simply disappeared after their initial treatment, fearing their immigration status would be used against them.
So, simply in order to reach all the people who need rehousing and support to rebuild their lives, it is necessary to offer a full immigration amnesty. This move should be seen as comparable to the assurance, already been given to survivors, that no one will be penalised because they are in breach of local authority rules against subletting the flats.
In both cases, it is a basic humanitarian measure to ensure survivors are not deterred from seeking the support that should be theirs as a right.
So, that’s ‘with complete and total disregard, when she thinks it might benefit some of her fellow ethic minorities’ and ‘with utter lack of foresight as to the potential consequences of telling people already living an illegal lifestyle that arson might get them what they want’.
So, don’t say you’ve not been warned.
