Inspired by Australia’s inhumanity, UK plans to send refugees to Rwanda

The Morrison Model of Asylum,

As broadcast on the BBC ‘s World Service on 15 April, the policy of asylum seeker deterrence is just about moving a problem elsewhere. By creating a policy whereby asylum seekers and refugees who arrive in UK territory without a visa are sent to Rwanda does nothing to address the global consequences of conflict. It simply moves the problem to a developing nation. And what of the needs of Rwandans? “Out of sight, out of mind” strategies have (in Australia’s experience) led to astounding abuse and massive national shame.
