You may have been reading about the Home Secretary’s embarrassing blunder over the ‘criminal can’t be deported because he had a cat’ myth.

You could try to do the ‘why do we believe these things?’ analysis for yourself on this one – though you will need to assume some racism or at least xenophobia in the people who keep it going.

Footnote: why are these people so worried about human rights that they have to use lies to argue against them?
