During a recent episode of Question Time, Suella Braverman’s Rwanda migrant plan faced a significant setback as it failed to garner any show of support from the audience.

Host Fiona Bruce, broadcasting live from Exeter, posed the question of whether the audience supported sending people to Rwanda following the Court of Appeal’s ruling.

To the government’s dismay, not a single member of the audience raised their hand in support.

“Good on you” Remark and Applause

Panelist Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s response, saying “good on you,” resonated with the audience and sparked applause.

This further highlighted the lack of enthusiasm or agreement with the proposed plan.

Acknowledging the Complex Problem

Social care minister and MP for Faversham and Mid Kent, Helen Whately, acknowledged the complexity of the issue and expressed the desire to welcome people while understanding the challenges they face in their home countries.

She noted that although asylum seekers may have crossed several safe countries, their origin countries often present extremely difficult living conditions.

Court Ruling and Government’s Response

The setback for the government’s Rwanda plan came after senior judges ruled that the African country was deemed “not safe.”

In December, the High Court rejected legal challenges to the policy brought by individual asylum seekers and the charity Asylum Aid.
However, in a significant ruling, the Court of Appeal, by a majority of two to one, declared the policy to be putting asylum seekers at risk and deemed it unlawful.

Prime Minister’s Disagreement and Planned Appeal

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak expressed his strong disagreement with the Court of Appeal’s ruling and announced the government’s intention to seek an appeal in the Supreme Court.

This indicates the government’s determination to pursue their proposed Rwanda migrant plan despite the current setback.

Conclusion:

Suella Braverman’s Rwanda migrant plan faced another blow as it failed to gain support from the audience during a recent episode of Question Time.

The lack of audience endorsement, coupled with the Court of Appeal’s ruling deeming the policy unsafe and unlawful, presents significant challenges to the government’s proposal.

While the government plans to appeal the decision, the current lack of support indicates the need for a reevaluation of the proposed plan and a deeper understanding of the complex issues surrounding migration and asylum.
