Getting back to the guy who's being/been(?) deported, the only troublesome part for me is the lag in time between offences and deportation. While he doesn't have my sympathy (I'm pretty much of the 'send crims back where they came from' mentality) I do thinkk that natural justice should include timeliness. Not booting hm out long ago suggests either a cock up somewhere in the past or a political decision being taken now; either way it looks rather poor on the authorities.
Anyway, where's that bloke gone who was calling me a racist on a different thread? (Not that I have a recist bone in my body!) He'd have a field day with some of the comments on here!
