Director Ken Loach accepts the Bafta award for Best British Film for his portrayal of life in the British welfare system in I, Daniel Blake. He uses his speech to criticise the government for its “callous brutality” and its attitude towards “the most vulnerable and the poorest people” in our society, and particularly notes that the “disgraceful” cruelty now “extends to keeping out refugee children”.
