    The Tories hit new LOWS with the Windrush situation

    Just when everybody thinks the Tories can't get any worse they do with treating the Windrush people with the threat of deportation , what an utterly morally repugnant government they are and what a nasty , racist piece of work Theresa May is as this lands right on her desk as home secretary.

      The whole saga is an utter embarrassment. Is that what May meant in her Citizens of Nowhere speech?

      I agree. This is a dreadful situation.

      This 66yr old man came over, by invitation of the British government, with his parents, aged 9. He left school, qualified as a special needs teacher. He has been here for 56 years, but since Theresa May changed the rules in 2013, he lost his job. His father worked for the Post Office.

      Braithwaite is one of an emerging group of people who were born in Commonwealth countries and arrived in the UK as children who have discovered half a century later that they have serious and hard to fix immigration problems. Lawyers working for people in this situation say the level of documentary proof required by the Home Office is extremely high, with officials requesting to see a minimum of one, but preferably four, pieces of documentary evidence for every year spent in the UK. Often GP surgeries and schools that might have been able to provide documentary proof of their residence have since closed, and records destroyed.

      Braithwaite was distraught at losing his job. “I had a good rapport with the children. The head said I was an asset to the school, but the HR department said I was illegal because I didn’t have a biometric card,” he said. A biometric card is a residence permit issued to non-British residents, with details of their immigration status. “I had no idea what a biometric card was. I had no idea there was a need to naturalise.”

      He began attempting to untangle his immigration situation in 2016 when he first understood there was a problem. When it proved difficult to resolve quickly, he lost his job in February 2017. His lawyer said Home Office records showed he had the right to be in the UK, but officials repeatedly failed to issue him with documents to reflect this.

      The latest letter from the Home Office, sent this month, told him he needed to provide further documentary evidence to show he was in the UK before 1973




      This is as bad, if not worse,

      Fundraising efforts to help pay for cancer treatment for Albert Thompson (not his real name) who is in a similar situation to Braithwaite, raised more than £24,000 in five days. Thompson arrived from Jamaica as a teenager and has lived and worked in the UK continuously for 44 years but was denied NHS radiotherapy for prostate cancer last November.

      There is a petition for these people to be treated fairly by the Home Office. It's called an Amnesty, but an amnesty implies a pardon, when they have done nothing wrong!

      I am ashamed of my country.

      Absolute disgrace.

      I really, really want to vote May out.


      Sadly comrade Corbynski is far, far worse.

      I have to say that shamefully I'd never heard of Windrush until now. My shame of not knowing about it is nothing to the shame the government and in particular May should feel for destroying peoples lives. Exactly what purpose are the government now cracking down on these people that have spent most of their life here learning, working and contributing to society and the tax take ( something you would think the money orientated Tories would love ).

      There aren't words to describe the disgust I currently have of May.
      The devil whispered in my ear : "You're not strong enough to withstand the storm."
      I whispered in the devils ear : " I am the storm."

      It's exremely rare that I agree with anything you write on here but this time I do !
      Shameful treatment.
      My definition of an intellectual is someone who can listen to the William Tell Overture without thinking of the Lone Ranger.

      My definition of a sad git is any Palarse fan who has posted more than 100 times on NSC.

      If you applied the criteria to yourself, could you provide evidence of UK residency for the length of time these people are being asked to provide.

      I know I couldn't.

      So that probably means that I'm now unemployed and not entitled to NHS treatment.........

      Tories out!
