Why not just go the whole fuckin hog and build a new penal colony on South Georgia?
Why not Abbot's old home.
It's got form as a penal colony.

Priti Patel has called the asylum system “fundamentally broken” and promised new laws to deny asylum to those using illegal routes to enter the UK, causing dismay among human rights groups.
I'm no expert, but I think I see a legal problem here.Apparently so does Patel herself.
Patel suggested the government expected to hear legal challenges on the new approach, saying that those “well-rehearsed in how to play and profit from the broken system will lecture us on their grand theories about human rights”.
"Grand theories" like "this is what the law says", perhaps.

Followed by the most risible bit of all.
“If at times it means being unpopular on Twitter. I will bear it,” she said.
Am I missing something here, but how can this end in anything but the Home Secretary losing very badly in court and costing the government a fortune in legal fees? Is there maybe a period where she can illegally kick people out before the law catches up?

"Well-rehearsed" is another goody. ie looking up the law.
"...and I would have gotten away with it were it not for those darn lawyers!"
