Welcome On A Human Level
"Descendants of Chagos Islanders forcibly evicted by the British in the 1970s will soon be able to apply to become British citizens, the Home Office has said."
This was the ne plus ultra of lunacy when Jeremy Corbyn, Alex Salmond and George Galloway used to advocate it. Now, let's see how British citizens could be prevented from returning to the British Indian Ocean Territory. A way to stop them will be found.
The liberation of the Chagos Islands would undo a terrible wrong perpetrated by two previous Labour Governments, and specifically by two supposed "Lost Leaders", Denis Healey and David Miliband.
But what, exactly, would Mauritius do for the Chagossian people? That is not a rhetorical question.
