This one continues to run despite several desperate attempts to shut it down.
1. It was the evil Labours (Don't you know they hate the Jews too).
This one died quickly as we found out who had implemented the changes, and tweaked the laws that left the Windrush generation in Legal/Illegal limbo.
2. It was the civil servants (Don't you know they're all lefties at heart, golden pensions and paid more than the P.M.)
This one gained massive traction on ConservativeHome, but failed to flyamong any of the mainstream media.
The tories stopped pushing it after it re-opened reporting of May's disciplinary actions against various senior civil servants and border guards.
3. It was only directed against the illegal ones.
See point 1. Lawmakers are a bit like humpty-dumpty, illegal means whatever you want it to mean.
Less mentioned, is that the pub-bores and street vigilantes don't know or care about illegal or legal.
To them it's a sign that "everybody agrees with me - send the lot back".
With the attendant rise in hostility to any visible minority.
My mother in law is 87, her passport expired 3 years ago.
She watches a lot of television especially during the recent snows, and likes to keep up wiht the news.
She has been in a panic, and has made a completely unnecessary passport application (At least she will get a red one).
Her papers are correct, through rather confusing, and we are now stuck in a time limited (This is something new) round of queries with the passport office.
It's a kafkaesque experience for even relatively educated, IT savvy folk with all the necessary papers.
The educated differ from the uneducated as much as the living from the dead. Aristotle
