I have no words left. None. “Priti Patel asked officials to explore the construction of an asylum processing centre on Ascension Island, a British overseas territory more than 4,000 miles from the UK in the south Atlantic, for migrants coming to Britain.”
"Priti Patel asked officials to explore the construction of an asylum processing centre on Ascension Island, a British territory 4,000 miles from the UK in the south Atlantic, for migrants coming to Britain". How is this not parody??
Simpsons Britain: the ludicrous Priti Patel weighed shipping UK asylum seekers to Ascension and St Helena
Priti Patel weighed shipping UK asylum seekers to south Atlantic
