There aren't many days on which the First Minister of Wales doesn't take aim at UK government policy on Twitter. Following the failure of the Rwanda policy it was suggested that some of the migrants could be given electronic tags, so that they don't abscond from bail. They have, after-all, entered the UK illegally. This was all lost on open borders enthusiast Mark Drakeford who lambasted the very suggestion...
Of course not so long ago the Welsh Commissar effectively closed the Welsh border several times and told, specifically, English people to stay away. What if they too were 'seeking safety and sanctuary' Mr Drakeford? Does this sanctuary of which you speak only apply to foreigners? Or was this merely an opportunity for you to flex your socialist nanny state muscles, an opportunity that no comrade could fail to seize with both limp-wristed hands?
As for treating people with 'dignity and respect'. Was it not only a few months ago that people in Wales who had not received an experimental and potentially fatal Covid vaccine were largely excluded from society? They were treated like second class citizens, criminalised and barred from hospitality. Meanwhile, the compliant ones were forced to present their papers or digital ID in order to participate in society and failure to do so would relegate them to the lowly status of the unjabbed lepers.
Those who may be tagged by immigration officials have entered this country illegally Mr Drakeford. They may well pose a threat to the security and safety of our citizens - as with the abhorrent bombing of the Manchester Arena that cost so many lives. What is abhorrent about looking after the safety of your own citizens? Is that not what you were doing with your over-the-top Covid restrictions?
We strongly suspect it was more likely that you merely leapt at the chance to stamp your socialist authority on the proletariat and when some refused to comply you created an apartheid society. You will undoubtedly be gagging to do so again, especially seeing as Covid restrictions in Wales are 'paused' as opposed to 'ended'.
An apartheid regime Mr Drakeford, really? What would Jeremy say?
