Backlog Britain is hitting Newcastle Central hard with long waits for responses, passports, asylum decisions etc. Yet Home Office is spending over £100million on its Rwanda policy, as inhumane as it is workable. I told the Home Secretary she needs to fix her Department not hide behind refugees!

As always the Home Secretary wouldn’t take responsibility, claiming Covid is why asylum seekers are stuck for years in bureaucratic purgatory with no decisions. This isnt true. The HO’s figures show decisions within 6 months dropping since 2014, to 40% in 2018, and 23% in 2019.
