Just one-in-five voters believe that Rishi Sunak’s Government will fulfil its promise to “stop the boats” crossing the English Channel, according to an exclusive poll for the Byline Supplement.
The Home Secretary, Suella Braverman, this week announced a new law that will effectively ban anybody seeking refuge in the UK, unless they qualify for a small number of government approved schemes, such as those set up to take in people fleeing Ukraine and Afghanistan.
The new law, which has been described by the UN as a “de facto” ban on seeking asylum in the UK, is designed to deter the growing numbers of small boat crossings in the English Channel.
However, our new poll, conducted by pollsters Omnisis this week, finds that only a small minority of voters still believe the Government will actually meet its promise.
