They are now so totally divorced from reality it is not funny.
Anyway, stand by for Sven to leap in, point out that the text messaging idea is but one small part of a wide range of measures, most of which have been proposed separately by the Tories (the desparate back-pedalling excuses deployed by 'Dr' Reid today).
There is one thing worse than the perpetrator, and that is the apologist. Just ask Quisling or the members of the Vichy Government.
It's a great idea except for the fact that :-
A)The home office needs to know the phone number.
B)An illegal is not going to pay tax so why should they provide their number to ANY government agency.
C)Once, if the number has been sent the threat to be deported can not be enforced as they will just change their number.
D)It will never work.
This will only help those law abidding travelers who sign up for it.
Reid needs to change a few things
A)Obtain all the numbers of every one in the country.
B)Text them form a Premium rate number "Hurry, your wife is giving birth!!!"
C)Every one will text or call back on Primium rate number "Sorry you have the wrong number M8!".
D)Reid makes sacks of cash then retires.
Who the Fcuk thought this one up? It's worse than the idea to put Wacko Jack in charge of Child care and fatherhood classes!
The Home Office has openly stated that they have no idea how many illegal immigrants are in this country because by their very nature they are impossible to track....yet they've got their phone numbers!?!
This is surely the most inept government in the history of the Western World...?
If they can't manage to get rid of 1000 illegals who were serving prison sentences then what hope is there of getting rid of the rest? I suggest starting on those with legal status who really have no business being here..rip up the Human Rights Act and then..."on your bike...couldn't give a f**k what happens to you when you get home." I also suggest we start with Abu Hamza (who is here legally!)...Any more suggestions?
... the native underclass of obese losers who weren't able to learn enough from their free education to pass the ever easier exams at GCSE level or figure out how a condom works will now be able to deliver pizza's rather than claiming benefits at our expense.
It is my understanding on the BBC news last night that the Home Office could text someone to tell them it's time to leave. However, they also said that visitors had NO compunction to give their numbers in the first place.
I must admit I never saw the bit concerning 'giving them a mobile for free'
