Asylum No More

The UK seems to be moving towards having a tough stance on asylum-seekers, and to hell with the consequences. The Independent reports on two disturbing cases (Maud Lennard and Meltem Avcil), and Craig Murray reports on an even more disturbing third case (Jahongir Sidikov). Today I don’t feel proud of being British.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.

One Response to Asylum No More

    This is fairly typical of the governments ‘close the stable door after the horse has bolted’ technique. No matter that the stable door closes on the stallions and the horses fleeing from the storm. No matter that it does nothing about the actual problem, or addresses the actual issues. Just slam the door completely and people might think you’re doing something. I would say the situation with the child benefit cd’s sums up the approach of the goverment just fine and dandy. I despair in fact.
