Celebrities condemn ‘brutal’ government plan to send migrants to Rwanda

Celebrities have condemned the government’s “brutal, stupid and harmful” actions in Rwanda amid an ongoing legal battle to deport migrants.

The plane, carrying several persons to Rwanda, was halted on Tuesday night after a last-minute intervention by the European Court of Human Rights.

Comedians Frankie Boyle, Simon Brodkin and Sue Perkins were among those to comment on the controversial policy.

“The flight to Rwanda on the anniversary of Grenfell says everything about the direction we have traveled over the past five years,” Boyle wrote on Twitter.

Fellow comedian Nish Kumar also hailed the news of the canceled flight as “wonderful” and “unbelievable”, sharing tweets from refugee action group Stop Deportation.

After news of the halted flight, Deborah Frances White, host of the Guilty Feminist podcast, said: “Amazing.

“Imagine the emotional toll of the already suffering souls being put on that plane and then disembarked. Are they still in custody?”

Brodkin, known for his political-themed pranks, joked: “The Rwanda deportation flight was delayed for the sixth time.

“Priti Patel vows never to use Ryanair again.”

Perkins described the announcement that the government would go ahead with its decision to deport the migrants as “shameless.”

“Today, the government was the first to put forward the most brutal, stupid and harmful responses to the problems they created,” she wrote.

“That’s where xenophobia and ‘sovereignty’ get you; breaking international law and sending asylum seekers to Rwanda.

“Shameless, a lot of them.”
