Nick Thomas-Symonds responds to Priti Patel’s Tory conference speech
Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to Priti Patel’s Tory conference speech, said:
“The Tories talk about a broken immigration system, but they have been in power for a decade and are the political party that broke it.
“Recent experience suggests they have not learned any lessons at all, with unconscionable, absurd proposals about floating walls and creating waves in the English Channel to push back boats and sending people thousands of miles away to process claims. The truth is the Tories are devoid of compassion and competence.”
