Home Secretary James Cleverly hit out at a migrant small boat stunt at Glastonbury.

An inflatable boat crammed with migrant dummies in orange life jackets was launched into the group on the competition with Banksy confirming it was his art work.

But Mr Cleverly mentioned it was “a celebration of the loss of life in the Channel”.

He informed Sky News: “There are a bunch of people there joking and celebrating about criminal actions which costs lives, people die.

“People die within the Mediterranean, they die within the Channel. This just isn’t humorous. It is vile. It is a celebration of the lack of life within the channel.”

Asked if the boat could have been a commentary on the Conservatives’ failure to stop the boats he said: “Our means to type that downside out has been hampered each stage by the Labour Party who aspire to frame management.

“They know that had they supported us, they voted over 130 times to prevent us taking greater control of our borders, the hypocrisy of the left on this issue is breathtaking and to joke about it, to celebrate it at a pop festival when there have been children dying in the channel is completely unacceptable.”

The stunt came about whereas Bristol rock financial institution Idles had been enjoying on the Other Stage at Worthy Farm on Friday night time.

The boat appeared whereas the group had been performing Danny Nedelko, a 2018 launch which begins with the lyrics: “My blood brother is an immigrant, a beautiful immigrant.”

Banksy yesterday posted a video of the boat crusing by means of the group on his Instagram.
