The Transport Secretary is indeed lying. International law does not require asylum seekers to apply in the "first safe country".
Today Grant Shapps lied about the 27 people who drowned in the Channel by falsely accusing them of breaking international law. Hi @grantshapps. Your words in the wake of this tragedy are an immoral disgrace.

every stated advantage of NFTs, dismantled by the very people shilling them: - they were stolen - centralized platforms blacklisted them (they can't be resold), based on the former owner's word - the former owner still uses the avatar they lost, insisting it's still theirs really
