I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

This is worth a read: I certainly had no idea this kind of thing was going on.

This is the best way to deal with unwelcome immigrants.

The article says:

His mother was shot dead for her political beliefs. So was his father. He was looked after by foster parents in London until he turned 18. Then he was locked up so that he can be ‘dumped’ abroad. Soon we’ll be doing this to 16-year-olds…

And you think that’s the best way to deal with unwelcome immigrants? Either you’re excessively harsh in your approach, or I’m just a soft-touch. But I wouldn’t allow kids in the country to grow up and then deport them once they’ve acheived that objective. Besides which, why would you let immigrants you perceive to be unwelcome into the country in the first place? And which immigrants do you perceive to be unwelcome? And, as I recall, isn’t this guy an asylum seeker rather than an immigrant?
