The Home Office rejects Zak's claim to stay, by article 8 of the European declaration of human rights, which guarantees the right to a family life, because "if we really love each other then I'd move to Afghanistan"?!Well, Carina, why is that so unthinkable?
Is the Home Office seriously suggesting that a British Christian woman move to Afghanistan, with a man who is not from the dominant ethnic group, has no family and no livelihood to return to, when our own troops are withdrawing from a conflict that seems ever more intractable?Well, clearly, it's far more sensible that the UK allow the unrestricted import of ever more exotic lovers for middle-class women to choose between, right?
I note your bio reads:
'Carina Crawford Rolt is a community organiser who advocates for changes to the asylum system.'Hmmm, so you aren't exactly a naive young thing experiencing their first brush with the harsh reality of the immigration system, are you?
Which came first, I wonder, the exotic Afghan asylum seeking chicken, or the Open Borders egg?
Clearly the CiF editor is well aware how this column is going to play out, as it bears this legend in the comment box: 'Comments on this post will be held in a queue until they have been approved by our moderators.'
Never seen that one before...
