Dear Ms Braverman,
The Financial Times published this letter from me on 5 October 2020 (no typo, I mean 2020).
Never too late to reply:
Following reports about putting an immigration processing centre on Ascension Island (Report, October 1) I would like to point out that the further out of sight you house asylum seekers the greater the opportunities for abuse by camp guards. If that does not convince, then consider there is zero chance of the UK Home Office running a remote island camp at less than astronomical cost. The only outcome would be a public inquiry concluding with a very long list of “lessons to be learned” — though not by Priti Patel, the home secretary. She will have moved on to greater things.
