This is the kind of immigrant we need here

#2
Bloody immigrants, coming here saving our pensioners with their community spirit, work ethic and sense of social responsibility. Taking jobs from hard(ly) working policemen, to boot. We should force him to live on nothing but grandiose benefits so readers of the Daily Mail and Sun aren't ever forced to re-evaluate their stereotypes by actual people.

It's the only language his sort understand.

Except he isn't an immigrant is he?
He's a student here on a temporary basis for his studies. He is also entirely a different type of character to those that many of us are unhappy about.
But then lets not let the technicalities get in the way should we? After all it makes it harder to criticise the Daily Hate readers if we stick to the facts....!!!!!!

Actually, in Togo they tend to necklace muggers/the equivalent, but I doubt whether he had a tyre and petrol handy. Personally, I'd be happy to see some jungle justice in some of the areas of London I unfortunately have to pass through.

You're right, he's not actually an immigrant, but if he wished to stay here then he would be.
I chose the 'immigrant' word to highlight the fact that he'd be exactly the type I'd like to see encouraged to stay. A responsible person prepared to study and support a law abiding society. All too often we seem to see stories of people over here on so called 'educational' visits that commit horrendous crimes and get to stay even longer at our expense under HM's pleasure, then evade expulsion and disappear into the ranks of the great unwashed.
It was nice to hear a story about one of the good guys for a change.

It seems he is one of the good guys, I have no problem with people like that coming here (within reasonable contraints of capacity)
The trouble is we do not differentiate beween those that are desirable and those who are not. Sadly we have hundreds of thousands who are not desirable.

You're right there.
I normally take stories like this with a big pinch of salt, especially in the Daily Mail.
But it reminded me that he's actually on the way to satisfying some of the terms for citizenship.

Yes, he is. He needed a visa to enter the UK, ergo he's an immigrant. The clue's in 'immigration status'.

If you want to get all technical, how about being being so with people who confuse immigrants (like this chap, here for legitimate reasons with HMGs approval and blessing) with asylum seekers? Or who see all immigrants as fitting the narrow stereotype our right-wing media love?

He's an immigrant, cut it which way you like. And he's a good bloke of the type I for one wish we could produce more of ourselves. Try not to get too cross-eyed coping with both concepts at once.

Anyhow, the point is he should acquire sufficient points under said new system to acquire citizenship once the required 5 years have run their course, but doubtless to say, as he has infringed the muggers rights to mug and abuse old ladies, our hero will no doubt be on the next plane home with a deportation order in his back pocket.

Or am I just a bit too cynical?

What a load of shoit!

I'll tell you what's wrong with that picture shall I? Firstly, not only did he assault the other feller and falsely imprison him, he also abused his human rights.

What the fcuk is wrong with this country. The togo bloke should have been banged up. I for one will not accept the validity of people taking the law into their own hands.

We have a perfectly good police service and all the CCTV we need to tackle crime without the have-a-go vigilantes taking it upon themselves to circumvent the judicical process.

Suggest he gets time, and the fcuked off back to his own country thank you very much.

Beat me to it BS heh heh heh!

When the limp-wristed, foreign, jobs-worth at Croydon hear what this good fellow has done, he will be on the first 'plane home'

Why?

In 'Bliar's' Britain, the criminal is KING - the 'good guy' is a 'public-school' educated' 'upper-class', 'over-privileged' twit who deserves to be punished.

Have-a-go hero who locked up mugger of 70-year-old lady in a church.

This guy is in this country doing a degree course and heard the woman's call for help as her bag was snatched. He tackled the man and locked him in a church.
He's only allowed to stay here for 5 years but I'd be happy to see him stay as long as he wants.
More power to him.
Absolutely. We need people like him. Yet I bet that we will spend more resources deporting him than a scumbag.

The dictionary describes an immigrant as somebody who migrate to a country on a permanent basis.
Regardless, this man is here on a non-permanent basis to study. More to the point, that study is his sole motive for being here. Vastly different to those who come here for healthcare and financial benefits from the state.

And the law defines an immigrant as a non-native person entering the UK on legitimate grounds. I do this for a living, recruiting and admitting International Students like this Togo national. In the eyes of the law, they're each and every one of them immigrants.

You're right about him being vastly different from scroungers. I just object to using terms incorrectly and tarring decent people like this chap with an unwholesome and entirely inappropriate brush. If you're against scroungers, thieves and benefits tourists, use those terms - not one which includes far more people who're none of those than who are - and use them against everyone who's of that ilk and not just the ones who weren't born here.

Once tommorrows Daily Mail and Sun find out he's on a student visa they'll start the countdown until he blows himself up on the tube
