LONDON – After months of controversy and obstruction, the British Parliament final evening accepted the regulation that permits unlawful migrants to be deported to Rwanda with out the potential of return. The lengthy recreation of “ping pong” is over: that is the identify of the political recreation between the House of Commons and the House of Lords, with the friends of the Kingdom repeatedly rejecting the regulation by proposing amendments which have been then rejected by the deputies and so forth.

In the top the Lords, who’re nominated and never elected by the residents, needed to bow their heads and settle for the need of the deputies “representing the people”. Great satisfaction for the prime minister Rishi Sunakwho had pledged to “stop the boats” of migrants touchdown on English coasts at any price.

“Enough now, no more prevarication, no more delays,” Sunak mentioned yesterday, stating that MPs wouldn’t go residence till the regulation was accepted. Parliament will stay in session till evening. Without ifs and buts. Flights to Rwanda will depart.”

First flights to Rwanda in July

The first flights to Rwanda are expected to depart in July – although it is unclear which airlines will take on the task, with even RwandAir having refused fearing damage to its reputation.

Today or tomorrow the law should receive the “royal assent” necessary for its entry into force. King Charles III will have to sign it despite himself: the then heir to the throne in 2022 had in fact defined the proposal to send migrants to Rwanda as “scary”.
