UK Home Office slammed for ‘no hiding place’ immigration tweet

The UK Home Office has been criticised after posting a tweet warning that there is “no hiding place for illegal immigrants”.

The official Twitter account posted several images about the planned Immigration Bill, accompanied with pictures of alleged “illegal immigrants” being forced into a Home Office van.

Several Twitter users responded negatively to the messages.

“You’d fit right in in Germany circa 1936,” said Peter Pannier.

James Schneider added: “How can you make one tweet so nasty and so factually inaccurate at the same time? Congrats.”

Jonnie Marbles, the comedian who attacked Rupert Murdoch with a foam pie during his testimony to the Leveson Inquiry in 2011, simply said: “Christ you’re evil.”

The Home Office account did not respond to any of the criticism on Twitter.

It later added a post including a video of a raid of a “rogue landlord” and the message: “Britain is open to brightest & best but uncontrolled migration has to be dealt with.”
