An illegal immigrant was allowed to stay in Britain because he had a cat, it was revealed yesterday. The unnamed Bolivian was spared deportation after he told a court that he and his girlfriend had bought the animal as a pet. Immigration judges ruled that sending him back home would breach his human rights by interfering with his family life.
The cat ruling was made by immigration judge James Devittie after the Bolivian submitted evidence that claimed joint ownership of the pet with his girlfriend demonstrated he was settled in Britain and it would break human rights rules to remove him.
This HUMAN RIGHTS LEGISLATION has got to be looked at again and if that means we fall out with the E.C., SO BE IT!
THIS COUNTRY IS BECOMING A LAUGHING STOCK.
