Killer of student goes free

Posted: July 27, 2010 in Broken Britain, Law & Disorder

It seems human life in the UK is getting cheaper by the day

IlieA student whose careless driving killed a trainee barrister on a pedestrian crossing has escaped imprisonment.
Foysal Ali, 24, drove through flashing amber lights, speeding at up to 37mph in the 30mph zone striking Victoria Johnson, 23, outside Mile End Tube station.

Miss Johnson had crossed the north side of the highway, came to the pedestrian island in the middle and then made to cross the highway. She had started to cross that part of the road after the green man to pedestrians had begun to flash. Mr Ali hit her while the lights to motorists were still flashing amber, he should have been “proceeding with caution” until the signal changed to green. He was unable to warn Miss Johnson of his presence as his car horn did not work.

A jury at Snaresbrook crown court unanimously convicted Ali of causing death by careless or inconsiderate driving following an eight-day trial.

But Judge Alan Pardoe, QC, said: “Having heard all the evidence, the sentence will not be immediate custody.” He ordered pre-sentence reports and bailed Ali until next month.

Ali was earlier cleared of a charge of causing death by dangerous driving on the direction of the judge.

To change the subject

IlieTwo immigration offenders have been found at businesses in Devon following raids.

UKBA officers went to the Mogul’s Palace, Dartbridge, Buckfastleigh, entering the restaurant at about 1730. One member of staff tried to flee, but he was caught by officers covering the exits.
After immigration checks were made, it was revealed that the 30-year-old Bangladeshi man had stayed in the UK illegally after his visit visa had expired. He was arrested and taken to Torquay police station for further questioning and remains in detention. Steps are being taken to remove him from the UK.

Officers then went to Royal China, 143 Queen Street, Newton Abbot, entering at 2000.

A 43-year-old Chinese immigration offender was found on site and arrested, although he was not employed at the business. Checks revealed he was a failed asylum seeker who had not left the UK as required when his claim for protection was turned down. He was also taken to Torquay police station and remains in detention. Steps are being taken to remove him from the UK.

Mind you removing these illegals has just got harder;

Mr Justice Silber has ruled that a Home Office policy allowing fast-track deportations to “maintain order and discipline” was unlawful because it could deny failed asylum seekers the chance to see a lawyer. The policy allowed migrants considered to be potentially violent or whose presence in a detention centre was thought to pose a risk to others to be deported almost immediately.

It followed a legal challenge by a Medical Justice, a charity working with detainees in immigration centres, which argued that the practice breached the human rights of people facing deportation.

Lawyers for the charity argued a hearing at the High Court in London last month that the policy denied people basic access to justice by preventing last-ditch challenges against removal.

How long before do-gooders complain about this?

In June 2010 the government announced plans to introduce compulsory English language tests for all non-European migrants applying to come to the UK to join or marry their settled partner.

The UK Border Agency have announced that these plans will be implemented from 29 November 2010. From this date, any migrant who wants to enter or remain in the UK as the partner of a British citizen or a person settled here will need to show that they can speak and understand English, by taking an English language test with one of our approved test providers.

The new rules will apply to anyone applying as the husband, wife, civil partner, unmarried partner, same-sex partner, fiance(e) or proposed civil partner of a British citizen or a person settled in this country. They will be compulsory for people applying from within the UK as well as visa applicants from overseas

ToffTory/LibDim are cutting benefits of long term unemployed but they are doing their best to create more unemployment.

IlieAction to protect thousands of Scottish defence jobs has been demanded after it emerged military chiefs are looking at axing the UK’s entire fleet of Harrier aircraft in a cost saving measure.
The government has made it clear it intends to cut defence spending by about 20%, and it has emerged that a weekend meeting of the UK’s new National Security Council debated either cutting all the 36 Harriers currently operated by both the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force or the RAF’s entire 132-strong Tornado fleet.

The decision to cut the Harriers, saving about £1 billion, would have dire implications for the future of the two new aircraft carriers currently being built on the Clyde.
Lopping £1 billion off Foreign Economic Aid would save that money at a stroke and save jobs too! Maybe it’s just me but doesn’t charity start at home?

    I can’t help wondering if the English language tests will concentrate on the need to know certain phrases……..you know the important stuff like ‘benefit office’ and ‘bigger council house’.
