Nick Thomas-Symonds – 2021 Comments on Priti Patel Refusing to Appear in Commons

The comments made by Nick Thomas-Symonds, the Shadow Home Secretary, on 18 January 2021.

It’s an abject failure of leadership and dereliction of duty not to grip a crisis that has seen 400,000 records deleted and criminals set to walk free.
