1932

Any one who heard Fergal Keane’s reports from Rwanda, any one who read Season of Blood, would, I hope, be forever haunted by accounts of what happened in that country during the 100-day period in 1994 where c. a million people were mutilated, massacred, hacked to death.  Before this sickest of deals, even a Tory MP said Priti Patel’s behaviour  would be “a resigning matter under any normal administration”.  Johnson’s is normal government. It plans to deport vulnerable people  to a regime that persistently uses surveillance, intimidation and violence to suppress dissent.
