But it's curious that when Labour proposed a policy to send asylum seekers to Tanzania, the Church of England was mute.
And it's curious that when the EU and UNHCR sent asylum seekers to Rwanda and Niger, the Church of England was mute.
Curiously, only the Tories are 'heartless'. https://twitter.com/JustinWelby/status/1538225138520449024

As we've said repeatedly, the Church of England’s opposition to deporting asylum seekers without any kind of assessment or care is not because the destination is Rwanda.

We would oppose such heartless treatment wherever people were sent.

An appalling and retrograde step for women’s rights and for personal liberty - literally taking the US back in time half a century

The Government has provided TfL with close to £5bn of funding, but by repeatedly playing politics instead of fulfilling his side of the bargain, Sadiq Khan is preventing a long-term deal from being secured.

I am delighted to see Croydon's new Conservative Administration delivering on its planning promises.

Planning Victories in Croydon at last! https://www.chrisphilp.com/planning-victories-in-croydon-at-last/

We’re turbocharging trade with the fast-growing economies of the Commonwealth.

By striking free trade agreements and liberalising tariffs, we are powering growth & prosperity, creating jobs and easing the pressures we all face on the cost of living – benefitting all our people.

Many pensioners are reliant on a free TV licence, which slashes the usual £159 cost to nothing.

So we're making it much easier for older people to apply for or renew their free TV licence – easing the admin burden put on over 75s.

🇬🇧 Our new UK Bill of Rights will better protect freedom of speech and end bogus human rights claims that waste court time and taxpayers money 👇

Every single day, members of the Armed Forces work around the clock to keep the UK and our allies safe.

The Government is focused on growing the economy to address the cost of living, while supporting families and businesses in short term.

The Chancellor has already committed to a cut in income tax, and I am confident that further interventions to stimulate economic growth.

Delighted to join Minister Chaiwut Thanakamanusorn of Thailand’s Ministry of Digital Economy and Society in signing a Letter of Intent on Digital Cooperation between 🇬🇧 and 🇹🇭. We'll work together to support businesses and strengthen our digital economies.

SNP asking about leaving the UK. They have huge a range of domestic powers - over Police, health, education, benefits and can vary taxes. They either don’t use them or use them to deliver worse outcomes than the rest of the the UK. There is no cogent case for separation

The leftists who are celebrating that migrant boats can continue to cross the English Channel have missed an important point.

They have no idea that they are in fact celebrating people smugglers growing their dangerous business AND more lives being put at risk.

Although 86% of people would prefer to buy their home than rent, just 65% are homeowners.

It is right that the Government is making it easier to get on the housing ladder, including through extending Right to Buy to housing association tenants & increasing the housing supply.

I am pleased to hear that the planned strike by Croydon’s refuse workers is no longer proceeding, I know this will be a great relief to residents. Keeping our streets clean is a top priority, and just one part of our journey towards restoring pride in our borough.

The planned RMT strikes will stop pupils sitting exams, patients getting treatment and millions getting to work.

With the median salary of rail workers about 60% higher the national average salary, it is not right that the RMT is holding the country to ransom in this way.

The Judge is right. This is lawful. Australia and the US has operated this policy. Denmark is looking to do it and even the EU has expressed support for this idea in the past. We should deter needless journeys by small boat from France - which is a safe country

This is why Labour - which receives huge trade union funding - backs militant striking unions instead of the wider public who will suffer. Rail strikes will stop pupils sitting exams, patients getting treatment and millions getting to work. I stand with the public on this one
