Soldier faces deportation and jail

#1
He volunteered to fight for Britain. Now this soldier faces deportation and jail... all over a speeding fine
Sapper Poloko Hiri could be sent back to Botswana
The UK Border Agency claimed speeding offence was a sign of 'bad character'


He has served in the British Army for four years with an ‘exemplary record’, but Poloko Hiri has now been ordered out of the UK – because of a speeding offence.
The 32-year-old from Botswana has had his application for citizenship rejected by the UK Border Agency who claimed the single offence was a sign of ‘bad character’.
Officials ruled the soldier should be bracketed with murderers, rapists and drug dealers – ordering him to quit the country by next Friday.
It is a decision that effectively leaves Sapper Hiri stateless as he faces certain arrest, prosecution and up to 25 years in jail if he returns to Botswana which deems enlisting in a foreign army a criminal offence.
His case has left the Government accused once again of ‘betraying’ the military, following round after round of spending cuts.

‘exemplary record’ means **** all. I've got an exemplary record despite having a charge sheet as long as my arm including 18 days in pokey.

Not another one! When is this ridiculous state of affairs going to end? The rules need changing now.

So presumably running down kids, robbery, rape (and **** knows what else) is considered to be 'good character'? Because they don't seem too bothered about deporting the shit that perpetrates that kind of 'offence'.

Get the speeding **** on the next plane out, after all the foreign rapists, junkies, terrorists, nonces, poppy-burners, muggers, conmerchants, granny-bashers, drug-dealers, gangstaz, etc. By the time we send him back, he will be about 90.

Illegal immigrants in Newhaven Connecticut recently won a lawsuit against their employer who paid them less than the minimum wage, they can't speak English, receive free medical care (just by turning up at the Emergency Room at Yale-Newhaven Hospital), free legal representation courtesy of Yale Law School, free/reduced rates at Connecticut's State Universities, they pretty much have immunity from arrest courtesy of the dingbat Mayor. Life is good in a country where the President regards illegals as heroes!
The young man from Botswana should've bypassed the UK and headed straight here, as an African-American he would be pretty much first in line for any freebie going, ask Obama's aunt!

So basically its fine for an employer to import illegals pay them shit wages.
Hmmm

UKBA should be disolved as unfit for purpose or some such load of bollocks.
Serve in the Armed Forces make a mistake and its the high jump for you sonny.
Enter illegally, drive a car with no licence, insurance or mot, kill a young girl, don't stop and the judges let you stay because of some human rights bullshit.
God you've got to love this country, Hammond or whoever the sec of def. is this week really ought to have a word in UKBA shell-like.

Things like this worry me deeply, mrBee is not a British citizen but serves queen and country and has been to the sandy paradise that is afghanistan. UKBA charged us £1000 for his probationary 2 year spousal visa to remain they will then charge us £2500 for his indefinite stay next year. But what really worries me is MrBee who has done all his schooling and university here was and is a lads lad. You name it from urinating in the street to the odd bar brawl he has done it. He is not a 'bad' man I am terrified they will refuse him stay for such minor things! In which case it will then involve lengthy eu court appeals and human right fights :(

UKBA are all over universities at present requiring triplicate signing in. They are trying to compete with the Indian civil service for paperwork. Judgement is not important it seems.

You'd have thought we were gang masters when we employed a GP from Pakistan. The chap went to medical school here, trained as a GP here but had to go back to Pakistan until the nasty men interviewed my boss and he was approved as a gang master.

The speeding fine was for driving 80 mph in a 50mph zone on the M1 at 0130 in the morning. No doubt many others on this site have driven on the M1, A1M, M4,M25 when they have long stretches of road works for 9+ months but leave them unmanned for periods when they shift the workforce round but leave the speed limits up and the cameras. No doubt it was a clear stretch and the gyt thought it was OK but didn't realise the cameras were on -oops! There you go, £100 fine and penalty points so his car insurance goes up and he keeps his nose clean for 3 years and they come off. This is just the UKBA trying to keep there quota up by expelling an easy target ie one with a settled address and family, unlike the Iraqi/Somalia/Afghan/Romanian etc with serious sentences for murder et al, drugs, prostitution, serial offending but have uman rites lawyers paid for by legal aid who let them stay on here to offend more. This country's admin really stinks!
