UK: Belfast judge deals Rwanda plan blow, rainbow lanyards out

From Nine To Noon, 9:45 am on 16 May 2024

UK correspondent Matthew Parris joins Kathryn to talk about a ruling from a Belfast judge that the plan to deport illegal migrants to Rwanda wouldn't apply in the province. Government minister Esther McVey has taken aim at civil servants, saying they should be banned from wearing rainbow lanyards - is this a new battle in the culture war? The shipyard that built the Titanic and is contracted to build Royal Navy ships could be shuttered in Belfast, while future ships could be built in Spain. And the tiny beachfront ice cream hut that's on the market for £1.5m.
