With the absent EU trade India will be looking to seal deals with UK and I simply find it hard to believe that that won’t involve skills sharing and immigration from India.
Maybe Sunak will invite Indians here and then she can fly them back in the night on a big plane with ‘CUNT’ written on it

The racist Brexiteers are going to love that!

I was reading something the other day that Starmer will win the next election and try and fail to make Brexit work. Come the 2030 Election (or sooner), the Tories will stand on a rejoin the EU platform. Stranger things have happened.

He is absolutely wholeheartedly part of Johnson’s catastrophic administration, and the fact that he resigned second does not remedy that.

The Home Secretary travels 19 miles in a Chinook helicopter to visit that refugee camp which the govt outsourced to drug dealers.

Don't want to get into trouble here, but does anyone else think that our last two Home Secretaries (both Indian ladies) are completely OTT regarding immigration? Suella Braverman has said that seeing a flight take asylum seekers to Rwanda is her “dream” and “obsession”. :shock:, Pritti Patel agreed that if the new immigration laws had in place in the 1960's, her parents wouldn't have been allowed to reside in the UK., but their approach seems fanatical, almost racist.

Almost racist?

Actual fascists in positions of power, its disgusting.

Well they really are whining today - as though it wasn't all their fault!

Strikes unfair at Christmas says Tory party chair Nadhim Zahawi
Strikes play into Putin's hands, he says.
He tells the unions to negotiate, while the Health secretary refuses to dicuss health service pay.

Yet more complete shambles.

We need a general election.

Rishi Sunak is working on introducing a cashless society. If that happens here, life ain't worth living.

It's part of The Great Reset masterplan. I don't have a particular link, I read stuff like that all the time.

Recent Tory policies are certainly leaving a lot of society without cash.

Suggestions abound that NHS workers could be banned from striking. Presumably they should be satisfied with a clap on Thursday nights.

Get ready to join the barricades.

Furthermore, I consider that we need a general election.

The question I always ask with the 'banned from striking' thing is... how is it enforced? If everyone goes out, they can't sack everyone, can they? They're not in a position where they can sack anyone, let alone everyone.

It's all empty threats. Or, if not, it is impotent and will fail spectacularly.

I suppose the idea is that any striking nurse (for example) will be in breach of their new employment contract if this legislation were to be passed.

I see many problems upstream however... How do you get workers to sign these new contracts for one? The government would be creating a whole pile of potential flashpoints. Presumably these contracts would have to be negotiated with the unions to make them legal. It's a minefield but Sunak seems intent on picking a fight.

I think their strategy is one of waiting until perhaps someone dies as a result of industrial action (in their view of course) and thus public opinion (which is I think marginally in favour of the strikers as things stand) swinging against the strikers.
