A decent man who contributes

I must admit I am appalled at the story behind the Bexhill Observer headline (16/10/15) about Michael Phelan awaiting deportation from the UK.

What the mentality is of the people who are supposed to be running this country, I dread to think.

Here we have a really decent man who has contributed to this country and then we have the thousands who are here just to leech off the hard working tax payers, many of these people coming here with criminal pasts and many with criminal intentions and we see it almost daily in the UK media.

Then what does the all-knowing (and often wrong) Home Office say, they just reel out the old chestnut of ‘no comment on individual cases’.

They say the same when the figures for immigrant crime statistics are discussed.

Why has this country become so afraid of the truth?

We have people coming in who have committed crimes in their own land and then go on to sometimes commit awful crimes here and nothing, totally nothing is ever done about it.

We even hear about people who want to leave the UK and we keep stopping them, what an absolute farce.

We live in a wonderful country let down by our own leaders and spoiled by criminals, homegrown and otherwise.
