Sir Keir Starmer admits Labour’s small boats plan could open the door to more asylum seekers from the EU

Labour leader discusses small boat returns deal with Brussels

Sir Keir Starmer, the leader of the Labour Party, has revealed that his plan to address illegal channel crossings could potentially lead to an increase in asylum seekers from the European Union. In an interview with Trending In The News, Sir Keir expressed his intention to strike a small boat returns deal with Brussels, which would allow for the return of small boat arrivals to the EU countries they originated from. However, this would also require the Home Office to accept a share of asylum seekers from the EU.

Keir Starmer responds to criticism from Rishi Sunak

Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, criticized Labour's approach to tackling illegal immigration, stating that it could result in an influx of 100,000 euro migrants. Sir Keir countered this accusation, stating that the government is resorting to propaganda and maintaining that he is not currently discussing a returns agreement. He emphasized that negotiations would need to take place separately, and as the leader of the opposition, he is not in a position to engage in such negotiations.

Sir Keir Starmer vows to combat people smuggling trade

Last night, Sir Keir Starmer pledged to address the issue of illegal immigration by cracking down on the people smuggling trade. In an article for Trending In The News, he proposed a "Security Agreement with Europe," which would involve collaboration between British intelligence agency GCHQ and European crime fighters Europol to monitor the activities of criminal gangs. Sir Keir plans to present this idea during his forthcoming meeting with French President Emanuel Macron in Paris.

Cabinet Ministers criticize Labour’s plan

A number of Cabinet Ministers have expressed their opposition to Labour's proposals. Rishi Sunak argued that Sir Keir Starmer had previously voted against the government's "stop the boats bill" and claimed that Labour's plan could potentially result in the acceptance of 100,000 EU migrants annually. Immigration Minister Robert Jenrick also condemned the proposals, referring to them as a "recipe for even more illegal migration."
