Penny Mordaunt vows to halt Channel crossings by cutting off fuel supplies and boats


WANNABE-PM Penny Mordaunt will cut off fuel supplies and boats from people smugglers in France in a bold bid to halt perilous Channel crossings.

The leading ‘Stop Rishi’ candidate promised to crack down on sick traffickers upstream – and offered France Britain’s help to guard their borders better against illegal migrants.

She also wants to slash the millions of pounds of taxpayer cash spent putting up Channel crossers in hotels.

The Tory grassroots darling would also stick by Priti Patel’s policy of sending illegal migrants to Rwanda if she gets the keys to No10 – which is hugely popular with members.

The former defence secretary warned that the migration crisis is at risk of getting worse as the world gets more unstable – calling on the world to unite to stop lives being lost to dangerous gangs at sea.

She told HOAR: “We must crack down on the evil and barbaric practice that exploits vulnerable people to arrive here illegally.

“I’ve spent a long time in the Mediterranean mapping migrant routes in the Med and North Libya – we should be doing more to work on what would be in France’s interest in regards to their Southern border.

“The rules governing all of this are completely unfit for the world we live in today – we need a new diplomatic narrative.”
