Priti Patel will hire private jets to send illegal migrants to Rwanda after ‘woke’ airline chiefs refuse to run flights

PRITI Patel will hire private jets to send illegal migrants to Rwanda because “woke” airline bosses refuse to run deportation flights.

The Home Secretary has been warned her bid to protect borders could be hit by the threat of protesters targeting any firms taking part.

So charter flights could be used to take migrants trying to sneak into Britain to Africa for processing.

Insiders even claimed Border Force chiefs may have to acquire their own plane for the route in the long run.

However, that risks sending the price tag for the controversial policy even higher.

Britain is already handing Rwanda £120million to offer a safe haven.

Last night a top Whitehall source said: “Just like when we try to deport foreign national offenders, we know that some woke commercial airline executives will bend to the social justice warriors on Twitter.

“Because of this, we need to look at options of chartering flights.”

But furious Tories last night urged commercial carriers to toughen up.

Ipswich MP Tom Hunt hit out: “What is this — British Wokeways?

“The majority of British people want to control our borders and support the Rwanda scheme.

“Any airline that refuses to take part should be named and shamed. I for one will avoid flying with them.

“I want an airline to fly me from A to B, not virtue signal.”
