Why Lord Kirkhope, a Conservative peer, opposes the UK’s Rwanda policy | The InnerView

Lord Timothy Kirkhope is no friend of the Labour Party, but is aligned with them on one major issue.
He says Rishi Sunak’s Conservative government's policy of sending asylum seekers to Rwanda is wrong and does not align with international conventions.

The UK politician has served as a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) and held various senior positions within the Conservative Party.

With migration at the forefront in the run-up to the election, Kirkhope reflects on the politics surrounding immigration in the UK, the impact of Brexit and the rise of populist nationalism globally.
