After reading the article I see what you mean. After years of service he gets treated like that! They should pay his family compensation for all the stress and financial problems caused as a result!

I agree Tony, This chap has British Citizenship, and the Border Control wish to Deport him, Where to? he is British, so will he be deported, then let back in as he is a Brit?. My advice to Cameron, GET OFF YOUR AR*E AND SORT IT. or are you so out of touch you don't even know about it. Time the Home Office got a grip on things like this, and laid some ground rules. Jim.

But the trouble is that the old saying that "Rules are for the obedience of fools, and the guidance of wise men" is being increasingly left in the dust. There are too many little people, who care more about showing their immediate superiors how good they are at following the "rules" than showing any humanity towards those involved. Until these "jobsworths" are weeded out, and slung out (and their bosses with them,) and society begins to care a bit (actually a lot) more, things will never change. There was a recent case, reported yesterday on BBC South, how a girl, in a special needs school, reported (twice) that she'd been raped by one of the boys, and she was expelled for breaking a school rule about not having sex on school premises. Definitely, the inmates are now running the asylum.

Edgar. Amen to all that. When I'm in charge, the firing squads will be working 24/7. When I listen to the stupidity of the way the Police act these days I could spit. We've generated a country of bufoons. Andy

Agreed with Andy,we are forced to house people who should never be given the privilege of living here and have to suffer the fools in charge.

Just to rub salt in the wound, today it is announced that another 5,000 soldiers are to go, at the same time that Camercon starts muttering about hunting down Islamic fundamentalists and terrorists. Who is going to do this I wonder?, perhaps volunteers as part of his "Big Society".
