is it too little too late? people have been saying this should happen for many years, but the gov hasn't done anything about it. brown taking a tough line on this is far from the blair years, i dont think the comment "We are going to take a far tougher line. I want a message to go out - if you come here you work and you learn our language. If you commit a crime you will be deported. You play by the rules or you face the consequences." would have come out of blair back in the day. i feel this is the right way, but i feel that the age old argument that if they claim that they will be killed in their country, then the human rights act stops us from deporting them? if each of the 4,000 claim that, how many will realy be deported? a few weeks back, i was listening to Jon Gaunt on TalkSport, and he said (not a exact quote) "we need to bin the human rights act, it only helps foreign criminals and terrorist by stopping us from deporting them on the ground that they fear from their life. what about our human right not to live in fear of being blown up every day? if you come to this country, you live by our law or you get deported, thats what the law should be" (he alsy had something along those lines in column in the Sun, at first i wasnt sure but with recent terrorist being jailed here (when they would be executed in their country. meaning we cant deport them) maybe it is time to, maybe not bin, but amend the human rights act so that foreign criminals can be deported with out spending one day in a british prision? if they know that they will 100% be deported back to their country, then they might not become criminals, so then there would be less foreign nationals committing crime?
