Step forward … two African rioters! Yep, it’s our old friend the “right to a family life” yet again.
The Telegraph can reveal for the first time how the two rioters – who were both made an example of by the criminal courts for their roles in the 2011 disorder – have since overturned the Home Office’s attempts to have them sent home.
One was convicted of violent disorder after rampages involving attacks on shops and cars by a gang in two Home Counties towns, while the other was convicted of burglary for his part in the London riots.
Right, so over a year ago the Home Secretary introduced rules “that made it “absolutely clear” that those who have committed a crime, broken immigration rules or cannot support themselves must not be allowed to stay”, but nothing’s changed in reality.
Ever get the feeling you’re being lied to?
