Sir Ed Davey criticises Government’s Rwanda ‘vanity project’ as Home Secretary visits Kigali

Liberal Democrat chief Sir Ed Davey mentioned the Authorities’s coverage of deporting individuals who arrive within the UK illegally to Rwanda is a “self-importance challenge” for the Residence Secretary. Suella Braverman arrived in Rwanda’s capital, Kigali, on Saturday. She is travelling with journalists from GB Information and PA Media, the UK’s nationwide press company – however Sir Ed claimed “the free press” had not been invited to the go to. “A failure to ask the free press to scrutinise her coverage means she ought to pay for the entire journey herself,” mentioned Sir Ed, “not on the expense of the taxpayer.”
