Someone Remind These Judges What Country They Are In...

...and which public it is they are selected to protect:
An immigration tribunal decided that Laith Alani, a paranoid schizophrenic, should not be deported to Iraq because it would breach his human rights and put people there at risk.
Alternatively, if he must stay here, let's put him up at the home of the cretin who made the decision:
The Home Office wanted to deport him on his release to protect the British public, but he appealed to the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal (AIT) where a panel led by Lance Waumsley, a senior immigration judge, ruled that he could remain in the UK.
How about it, Lance?

How about you take the risk, instead of the poor bloody long-suffering public? Maybe he can help you with your crosswords...

Excellent idea. There's a few other "M'Lord Numpty" judges who would benefit from seeing the results of their judgements at first hand. Can't see anyone in the Establishment making it happen though - shame.

Tricky. It's not clear from that whether this is more judicial activism or a judge looking at the law as written and realising that the Westminster wankery hasn't given him an option. If, say, the decision is based on some section of some Act which says migrants who enter the country as minors have the right to say then the blame lies not so much with the judge as for all the worthless lobby fodder who only stopped sucking the Whips' cocks for long enough to nod it through having barely read it, much less thought critically about it. In fact even if it is the judge I still blame the bastard pollies for failing to deliver legislation that works, i.e. delivers something that most people would recognise as being something close to justice rather than simply 'the law'. They should be tying the hands of judges, but so as to make sure people like this can't easily be released on to British streets. Fuck 'em all - let him be put up by the MPs themselves. A week in each one's main residence (whatever the fuck that is, natch) and if they survive then the practise they got in fucking staying awake can be put to good use in the House. Failing that kick Alani out or keep him inside.

To quote Penn and Teller, and then there's this asshole. I really ought to be giving slotgob the same benefit of doubt and suggest that the law as written might have been behind that to, but you know what, fuck it.

His email address is not on the net otherwise I would have contacted him inviting him to do just that. So, if anyone knows it... perhaps he'd like to hear what we all think before the nutter gets released and kills someone else in our country?

Yup, that'd work for me too.

"...perhaps he'd like to hear what we all think before the nutter gets released and kills someone else in our country?"

Oh, I doubt Lance troubles himself with the thoughts of the little people, somehow...
