How should Britain deal with migrants crossing the Channel in small boats? The government’s ideas include expulsion to Rwanda, and housing asylum seekers in barges moored off the Dorset coast. They have been accused both of failing to live up to promises to cut the numbers arriving on our shores, and also being cruel and vindictive towards those who are seeking safety or a better life. So is there a policy that is humane, effective, practicable and, at the same time, legal? Phil and Roger ask Madeleine Sumption, director of the Migration Observatory at Oxford University.
