Good Morning Britain’s Adil Ray mocked for asking MP ‘would you send Jesus to Rwanda?’

Adil Ray surprised Good Morning Britain audiences on Monday after asking an MP whether he would send Jesus to Rwanda in light of the government’s new refugee plans.

Last week, it was announced that Boris Johnson and Priti Patel had set out widely criticised strategies to fly refugees who cross the Channel in small boats more than 4,000 miles to Rwanda.

The scheme has been widely condemned, with the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby deeming it ‘ungodly’.

Adil wasted no time in questioning Minister of State for Business, Energy and Clean Growth Greg Hands on the matter and, in light of the Easter holidays, roped Jesus into the discussion.

‘Mr Hands, here we are celebrating Easter this weekend, the life and times of Jesus Christ, who was himself a refugee,’ Adil began.

‘Under this scheme, your government’s scheme, if he arrived in the UK today, Jesus will be sent to Rwanda. Is that right? Would you send Jesus to Rwanda?’

Mr Hands was clearly taken aback by Adil’s line of questioning and let out a little giggle, prompting the presenter to criticise him for ‘not answering’ it.

‘I’m sorry, I think it’s a ludicrous question,’ Mr Hands then said. ‘We’re 2000 years later and over 28,000 people have made an illegal journey from France to the UK, between two entirely safe countries, 27 people have died. It’s 2000 years after the Easter story.’

Adil soon dropped the Jesus link, but that didn’t stop viewers from ridiculing the line of questioning online.

‘Adil Ray saying that if Jesus was alive he would have been sent to Rwanda is a bloody awful comparison,’ one fumed. ‘Where does this moron get his stupid comments from?’





‘“Would you send Jesus to Rwanda?” What a ridiculous question. This interviewer is an idiot! Both interviewers are shouting aggressively. Why should I watch this rubbish!’ another slammed.

 The UK’s proposal to send migrants who arrive in Britain unlawfully to Rwanda has been deemed ‘unacceptable’ and a breach of international law, the UN’s refugee agency said.

The Government announced its plans to provide failed asylum seekers, including those crossing the Channel in small boats, with a one-way ticket to Rwanda, where they will have the right to apply to live in the African country.

The scheme had come under sustained pressure to stop asylum seekers making the perilous journeys.

Good Morning Britain airs weekdays from 6am on ITV.
