    Racism is “the will of the people”. You get what you vote for, sheeple.
    The Home Office said those detained included people convicted of manslaughter and rape, and all of them had their cases "fully reviewed" to ensure there were no legal barriers to their removal.

    It said Mr Crawford was convicted 10 times for a total of 22 offences, including the burglary.
    I have a modicum of sympathy for the guy, as a career criminal in Jamaica he's going to find out what hard justice really means. Thankfully I wasn't one of his victims. But I do think I'm smart enough to know that if you commit serious crimes in a country of which you are not a citizen, chances are they are going to send you packing.
    Are you seriously suggesting we need to keep them here, and out on the streets (until they commit another crime, for which they will cost the taxpayer untold amounts of money) for some insane reason you may or may not wish to share?
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...

    Didn't send Rolf Harris back (nor Johnson for that matter, remember he was still an American citizen when he admitted to drug taking)
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Is "drug taking" listed as a "Serious Drug Offence that warrants a custodial sentence of 12 months or more"?

    Thought not.

    The maximum sentences for possession of each class of drug are:

    • up to seven years in prison or an unlimited fine (or both) for a Class A drug
    • up to five years in prison or an unlimited fine (or both) for a Class B drug
    • up to two years in prison or an unlimited fine (or both) for a Class C drug

    Sentences can increase if you are dealing drugs or supplying them - even if it's just to friends with no money changing hands.

    Agree about Harris, he should have been deported. Johnson wasn't convicted of anything. And I believe this law only covers serious crimes, Johnson wasn't a dealer (according to his version of events iirc).

    Don't ask me a mountain of questions
    When there is only one answer to it all
    Do you love me, really love me as I love you
    It's the answer to everything if you do

    Don't give me a million excuses
    When I am waiting with my arms open wide
    Do you love me, really love me as I love you
    It's the answer to everything if you do

    If there is someone else, some other place who holds your heart
    Tell me now, truthfully, before we start

    Don't act like you misunderstand me
    When there is simply no mystery to it all
    Do you love me, really love me as I love you
    It's the answer to everything if you do
