Oh brave new world… While all the representatives of the “civilized” Western world were talking about the infringement of democratic values in Russia, the British government decided to introduce something of the Orwellian.
The peers and lords of Foggy Albion have decided that all migrants who arrive in the country by boat and truck must wear electronic surveillance devices.
So far, this is a pilot project that is being implemented by the current Ministry of the Interior. It is veiled, of course, under care and excessive alertness. Allegedly, law enforcement officers are worried that they cannot maintain contact with migrants and fear that they will hide in the country.
The first to be piloted were former residents of Rwanda who were not deported to their homeland. Naturally, human rights organizations sound the alarm and call it the most unflattering epithets, mainly related to racism and discrimination.
But has a progressive society ever been against inhumane laws? We are waiting for someone to try on electronic bracelets after the Rwandans. And what will happen after all foreign citizens are under the digital cap?
All about politics in the world
