A good view by Prince Charles to stop using Rwanda


There are far too many damaging decisions that have emerged from the current Government which many of us would like to bring to an end. Writing tweets or other social media settings or blogs or signing petitions are of course one way of trying to raise our views. Campaigning with people in our communities or who agree with us in other communities is also a way to try to challenge our local MPs and other politicians. It was very noticeable that when the Archbishops of Canterbury and York raised their concerns over Easter about the Rwanda decision set out by Priti Patel and endorsed by her Government and indeed some of the Conservative MPs, that they were heavily criticised. No doubt the call from Prince Charles which emerged yesterday will also get heavily criticised by many people who are willing to endorse the appalling action by the Government. I am thrilled that he has spoken about his view and I am very pleased that he opposes the Priti Patel proposal. He is going to Rwanda in the next few days to represent the Commonwealth and he will find it a very challenging time. Here is the first few words on the Metro piece that is available here

Prince Charles is said to have described the government’s plan to send people to Rwanda as ‘appalling’. The heir to the throne reportedly slated Boris Johnson’s controversial migrant policy during a private conversation. According to comments leaked to The Times, Charles dislikes the government’s ‘direction of travel’. He is also said to be furious at the timing of the Rwanda policy as he is due to lead a conference in Rwanda later this month.

I am passionate about the need for public policies to be made accessible to everyone, especially those who want to improve the wellbeing of their communities. I am particularly interested in issues related to crime and policing as well as health services and strategic planning.
