    Why? I don’t see the two (I assume) Rwandans involved in the Tory concentration camp policy alters the context. It is exactly what I said it was. The casual cruelty and breaking of international refugee human rights is in no way diminished by the addition/omission of a couple of employees in frame. They are irrelevant.

    It was your claim that it wasn't photoshopped or faked that is dishonest. Making a point is fine, but at least do it honestly. I happen to agree about her, but you do your point no favours here.

    To be honest I wasn’t aware it was cropped when I made my post (I’d not read right down the post responses). I still argue the crop doesn’t alter the context so I’ll not retract at all. The optics are the same either way. It is what it is; a UK Conservative Party politician openly laughing in front of a concentration camp that was created by the party at our expense to ramp up demonisation and hate rhetoric towards refugees. An act that is as I understand it in breach of international human rights legislation.

    The fact the 2 useful idiots were cropped out of the shot does nothing to diminish its abhorrent intent/ content.

    The scary thing is absolutely zero ad hominem is required. Just highlighting Conservative Party words, behaviour, policy, incompetence and corruption is all that is required to paint them as the very worst politicians this nation has seen since the days of no votes for anyone bar the wealthy elite, the slave trade etc.

    The thing that I find the most terrifying is just how open they are about what they are doing. The Home Secretary travelling 6000 miles for photo-ops in front of concentration camps, the Party Chairman publicly stating the next election will be fought on a culture war, scapegoating trans folk etc. They are absolute monsters and so proud of it.

    PS I’d so vote for that Pygmy Tarsier.

    Bah. You think you've got something because you're desperate to have something. Doesn't matter if the entire government of Rwanda is up there laughing with her, changes none of the basic facts. She is exporting people to a 'facility' in a third-world country, and she is happy.

    As it been mentioned here that only right wing gammon news was invited on the trip to boot? We really are falling down a rabbit hole here with this, we're really going to let them drag this out until the next GE aren't we?

    I guess you didn't read my comment that I agree about her? :rolleyes:
