    Silence is golden

    Leaflet through the door last week from Stephen Kerr asking for voters to lend them their vote.

    There was a phone number and e mail address asking voters to contact him with any concerns or issues.

    Thought I'd give him a chance.

    E mailed him saying the lending of my vote depended on the answer to a few things but these 3 questions were the most important to me.

    1. Define a woman
    2. What is your position on assisted dying.
    3. Do you think illegals should be detained then deported or given pocket money and put up in 3/4 star hotels.

    No reply as of yet, I doubt I'll get one and he won't get my vote.

    Got quite a detailed reply written by the man himself it looks like.

    Definition of a woman same as mine.

    Posistion on assisted dying same as mine.

    A wee bit more "flexible" on illegals.

    A little known fact on the flagship send them to Rwanda deal...

    The UK sends deportee plus approx £300k to Rwanda

    In return Rwanda keeps them, sends at least one Rwandan/Congolese settler to these shores and UK gives those individuals settlement cash.

    So far Rwanda has recieved around £240 million and no deportees have been sent there.

    All a bit strange

    Which part do you think that for?

    Here's clause 16 of the agreement

    16 Resettlement of vulnerable Refugees
    16.1 The Participants will make arrangements for the United Kingdom to resettle a portion of Rwanda’s most vulnerable refugees in the United Kingdom, recognising both Participants’ commitment towards providing better international protection for refugees.

    And here's the BBC saying 240 million so far

    What is the UK's plan to send asylum seekers to Rwanda? https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/explainers-61782866

    So you're suggesting the UK is putting each asylum seeker on a plane with £300k (remembering we've already paid an alleged £240million towards their upkeep to Rwanda) PLUS we take one of them in return and treat the arriving Rwandan to asylum benefits, which will be access to the NHS, schooling, housing, benefits etc?

    I need to clarify the 300k as that was stated on Laura Kuensberg show recently and I'll need to go find it but yes to everything else.

    The 240 million isn't for upkeep though that's just a fee. It's all there in black and white and I'm not suggesting anything it's a government document that states it

    Actually here you go....

    UK to pay at least £370m to Rwanda for asylum deal, watchdog says https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-68440653

    On the LK show they actually added that lot up and divided it up by new govt forecasts on how may would be sent and it came to 300k each.

    Also I can't see anything about a Rwandan coming here in exchange for every one we deport there. What would be the point in that? The costs would be the same as the original illegal immigrant.
