Isn’t this an interesting turn up for a Brexiteer

So, a mate is now an asylum seeker. Isn’t that an interesting turn up, seeing this all from the other side?

Given that he does actually have a case it should work out OK. There’s also always the fallback of the spare bedroom and what the fuck do you mean paperwork? Wrong country currently for that to work and he might be shocked by the career path of the one person we do all know in the right country.

But still, fascinating really….

  1. I’ve often wondered whether a person who is hassled by the UK government for over-exercising his free speech could successfully seek asylum in a country with more robust freedom-of-speech laws, such as the USA or Sweden.

  2. So, a mate is now an asylum seeker. Isn’t that an interesting turn up, seeing this all from the other side?

    Nowt wrong with asylum seekers. It’s “asylum seekers” and other prettied up descriptors for floods of illegal migrants used by leftoid handwringers that’re the problem. It’s mostly the leftoid handwringers that are the problem.

    . . . he might be shocked by the career path of the one person we do all know in the right country.

    Not just the mistletoe dangling today.

  3. my betski, Novo White Russian- thinks someone else should get a look in someday, therefore persona non grata.

  4. I can, in some respect, understand why we have so many (as PJF describes them) “asylum seekers”. I contrast the haste with which the authorities land, house and finance them with the way an acquaintance of mine was treated when he went by the “official route”.

    He is gay and fled his native middle-eastern country when he was “outed” and started to get some very unpleasant threats. It has cost him and his partner a bloody fortune in Foreign and Home Office fees and lawyers fees – we’re looking at well in excess of £10K – plus the astonishing level of buggeration-about, delay, repetition of paperwork (probably due to our “Rolls Royce” Civil Service losing the stuff) and the fact that although he’s highly-qualified he was not permitted to work until all the hoops had been jumped-through, which took years!. Crazily enough he actually received job offers from both the Home Office and his lawyers during his time in “purdah”.

    Best of luck to your mate. He’ll need it!

  5. He’s not being stupid enough to apply in the UK. Although he’s making his spending money by appearing on the BBC which I think is fun. But then he is a journo, that being one of the reasons for moving swiftly out of the home country…..
