Sunday morning

‘Mistakes’ by Home Office in case of Haywards Heath dad facing deportation.


 The Government department which wants to deport a fatherof- three has admitted mistakes were made with his visa application.

Australian Phil Sommerville faces being shipped out of the country, leaving his British wife and three children behind in Bolnore Village, near Haywards Heath.

A Home Office employee has now admitted there were “several errors” in letters sent to the family – including spelling their surname wrongly, incorrectly recording dates and erroneous visa restrictions – giving the impression the application “was not carefully considered”.

The Coalition's new policy: Blame the immigrants.


It is not dog-whistle politics when you can hear the xenophobic klaxon. We, the black, the migrant, can’t call it “racist”, as the definition of the word has been taken away from us. What is “racist”, is the hatred of the other, based on their biology, their skin pigmentation. Apparently it is not racist to the deny the basic humanity of those who were not born in the same artificial nation-state that you  happened to find yourself in. We are instructed that “racism” is the murder of Stephen Lawrence, but not the state-orchestrated death of Ama Sumani, a Ghanaian woman who had children in Britain but was sent to die because of a bureaucratic oversight. Nick Griffin is showcased by liberals as the epitome of the politics of “hate” but apparently there is nothing hateful or racist about the murder of Jimmy Mubenga and treatment of asylum seekers.

UK's confused immigration policy: Britain puts India on high-risk list after laying out red carpet.


The high-risk list proposal comes on the heels of sweeping immigration reforms announced by the UK government. Over the past few months the UK has unveiled a series of steps to clamp down on non-European Union immigrants. These include strict measures against landlords renting homes to illegal immigrants and charging non-European migrants to use the National Health Service. Potential immigrants from outside Europe must also earn at least £18,600 to bring their spouses to the UK.

Slight but important correction here : The rules apply to British citizens of whatever origin, including those native-born. Yet again the press is missing one of the key points about these iniquitous rules.
The rules are so bad no sane person can quite believe them.
