Pa­tel’s Priti com­i­cal re­sponse

- Priti Patel

EV­ERY time another pre­car­i­ous dinghy of il­le­gal mi­grants ( 6,300 by this route so far this year, and count­ing) ar­rives in Dover, Priti Pa­tel or one of her Home Of­fice un­der­lings pops up to in­sist ac­tion is al­ready be­ing taken to halt the flow.

And ev­ery time, I’m ir­re­sistibly re­minded of that Iraqi in­for­ma­tion min­is­ter nick­named “Com­i­cal Ali” as he in­sisted his boss Sad­dam was fully in con­trol, at the same time as Amer­i­can troops were clearly vis­i­ble pour­ing into Bagh­dad in the back­ground.
