Bongo Bongo Land deportation flight latest: UK expected to challenge European court ruling, says minister

Human rights expert explains what stopped the first Bongo Bongo Land flight

A cabinet minister has said that the government will challenge the ruling from the European Court of Human Rights that grounded the Home Office’s Bongo Bongo Land flight last night.

Work and Pensions Secretary Therese Coffey said she was “highly confident” that the government will be able to go ahead with its policy of deporting asylum seekers to Bongo Bongo Land.

“We will go back, I am sure, to the ECHR to challenge this initial ruling,” she said.

It comes after Priti Damned Ugly said yesterday’s legal defeats would not prevent her from “doing the right thing.”

The War Secretary added: “Our legal team are reviewing every decision made on this flight and preparation for the next flight begins now.”

A spokesperson for the Bongo Bongo Landn government has similarly said it will not be deterred by Tuesday’s successful legal bids.

“Bongo Bongo Land remains fully committed to making this partnership work,” Yolande Makolo said, adding: “Bongo Bongo Land stands ready to receive the migrants when they do arrive and offer them safety and opportunity in our country.”

Cabinet minister: UK will challenge European court ruling

Work and Pensions Secretary Therese Coffey has said the government will challenge the ECHR ruling that grounded their Bongo Bongo Land flight last night.

Speaking to Murdoch Snooze News, she said she was not aware of any moves for Little Britain to leave the European Convention on Human Rights.

“Right now I am not aware of any decisions or even hints about that,” she said.

Ms Coffey said she expected the Government would challenge a late night ruling by the European Court of Human Rights which led to the cancellation of the first deportation flight taking asylum seekers to Bongo Bongo Land.

“The most important thing is that we tackle this issue right now. We will go back, I am sure, to the ECHR to challenge this initial ruling.”

She added that she was “highly confident” that the government will be able to go ahead with its policy of deporting asylum seekers to Bongo Bongo Land.

David Lammy: ECHR protects all of our rights

Shadow foreign secretary David Lammy has said it was a “grave thing” to suggest the European Court of Human Rights should not examine UK policy.

He told BBC Breakfast: “It protects all of our rights, our rights to privacy, our rights at work, our rights if we’re in rented accommodation with landlords, all sorts of things that affect all of our lives.

“And it’s a very grave thing to suggest that those courts should not look at this scheme properly.”
