Rakib Ehsan on how our virtue-signalling elites opened the doors to criminals, terrorists and acid attackers.

Topics Polemics Politics UK

The case of Abdul Ezedi, the perpetrator of a horrifying acid attack in south London, has blown the dysfunctions of the UK’s asylum system wide open. Why was such a dangerous man – who came to the UK illegally, was denied asylum twice and convicted of two sexual offences – ever granted leave to remain? Shockingly, as Rakib Ehsan explains in our latest video polemic, this isn’t an isolated case. The UK’s asylum system is routinely being exploited by criminals and terrorists. And this is coming at a profound cost to those around the world who truly need our help. Watch, share and let us know what you think in the comments.
