Nick Thomas-Symond, the shadow house secretary, says that it’s “shameless” for Priti Patel to be speaking concerning the “damaged” asylum system, as she is going to in her speech this afternoon. (See eight.47am.) In an announcement he says:
The British folks will see by the house secretary’s shameless feedback a few ‘damaged system’, when the system has been overseen by the Tories for a decade.
That is but extra proof of how missing in compassion and competence the Tories are.
