Ripping Up Our Traditions

July 7, 2021 3:08 PM

The Liberal Democrats have condemned the government's new "Borders Bill".

Lib Dem leader on the London Assembly, Caroline Pigeon, commented: "This Anti-Refugee Bill is another truly nasty piece of legislation from the Tories, ripping up the UK's proud tradition of providing sanctuary to refugees."

Brian-PaddickLord Brian Paddick, our Spokesperson on Home Affairs in House of Lords, responded, "Totally agree - if you're a desperate refugee fleeing war and persecution there is currently no legal route to enter the U.K."

He added: "Currently the only Home Office legislation worse than the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill is the Nationality and Borders Bill.

"Both undermine British values & human rights."

"Lib Dems will fight these sickening laws at every opportunity."
