BBC News - Theresa May to give judges new deportation guidance Dispute between Ms May and judges over deporting foreign crims. (Mods feel free if there's already a thread but I couldn't find one) It seems to me that, not withstanding the fact that paragraph 2 of Article 8 allows for due process of law to override the right to a family life anyway, the judges are also ignoring the fact that deporting a convicted criminal would only deprive him of a family life if his family were unable to leave the UK with him and if it was the UK government who prevented his family from doing so. Clearly we aren't doing that. If the family CHOOSE not to leave the UK with him, it's not US depriving him of a family life. The criminal is still entitled to a family life, just somewhere else. I'll tell you what - though I might have to take it to the NAAFI - I'm even prepared to start a charity to raise money to help the unfortunate families to travel with the criminal. I'll call it the Foreign Unfortunate Criminal's Kin - Overseas Flight Fund - although we might just have to abbreviate that to an acronym on the wristbands.
