Denmark looks like it has had a good idea. And there’s not many times you could say that.
Over the past three decades there has been a growing number of immigrants to the liberal Scandinavian nation. And with the immigration has come tension.
At the last count-and that was seven years ago- there were 476,059 immigrants representing 8% of the population.
Politicians from both sides have responded to the community’s concerns with ever more stringent rules concerning asylum seekers. Now the Danish parliament has backed a controversial law -neither Brussels or the UN like it- which would allow immigrants to be sent outside Europe as their applications are processed.
While Denmark would pay for the transfer and the cost of the migrants staying in the third country the host nation would carry out the processing. That way much needed employment and money would go to the suggested nations of Egypt, Rwanda or Tunisia.

There is a suggestion that even those with successful claims after being exported they will not be allowed back into Denmark to enjoy refugee status but will have to stay in the host country.
Why don’t we do something similar?

Not so. As the migrants told the High Court they didn’t enjoy being cooped together claiming the conditions gave many of them covid.
To avoid these tensions why doesn’t Home secretary Priti Patel adopt the Danish idea.
We do a deal with another country to take the hundreds illegally making their way across the Channel. I suspect the idea of going to Rwanda and waiting for a visa may put off some of these illegals. What do you think?
This is a problem that will not go away. It needs a bold solution. The Danish have it. We should steal it.
