she is spot on, but who is going to listen and make changes, seems politicans and lawmakers care nothing for the publics view, but only altruism or they are just scared.

...the apposite words there being 'in power'
Indeed bednobs. But if you read my posts you will see that their power is severely restricted by the international treaties we have signed. Without addressing whether those treaties remain appropriate and fit for purpose (and taking action if they are not), it doesn't matter what power they have.
Unfortunately, when the future of such treaties is questioned, the usual suspects throw their arms into the air and act as if the government is suggesting slaying evey first-born child.
12.58 That won't stop the boats, you can talk until you are blue in the face on the subject, they will still keep coming until you take direct action. And before anyone asks what I would do, I don't have a degree in law in the UK or anywhere else in the world. And it don't look like she has, or her team of lap dogs.
> She also delivered a stinging rebuke to those who dismiss people alarmed about immigration as 'idiots or bigots', arguing that the 'failure' of multiculturalism was evident from the streets of Paris, Brussels and Leicester.
Most of the immigration in the UK is legal immigration. So what is Braverman saying ... if we need people to come to the country and work, but multiculturalism is failing, then who can we employ - white, Christian, English-speaking places? Like where ... Australia and Canada? But that's where people are actually leaving the UK to go to!!!
They may get more votes by doing the right thing but they also make powerful enemies if they have the cheek to stand up for our nation rather than bend over backwards to comply with demands to just talk about doing something. But ultimately it is the only reasonable path to stick up for oneself, ones nation, ones people.
Around a dozen Tory MPs, including ministers, have complained to the chief whip about Suella Braverman's recent speech on immigration and refugees.
And that is why nothing will be done about this problem. There is a small, but very vociferous and influential group of people who believe that this country must accept allcomers. The cost seems irrelevant to them and the effect that such large numbers of people arriving without the proverbial pot to pee in seems to be similarly unimportant.
This influx (not only to the UK but to the whole of Europe) is beginning to cause serious problems and these will only worsen because it is simply not possible, nor desireable, to accommodate these people and provide the services they will require. There was nothing devisive, offensive or incorrect about Mrs Braverman's speech. But I fear she is banging her head against the wall because there is no collective will amongst politicians to address the problem.
