Simon Heffer today describes Jean Charles de Menezes as 'a docile Brazilian immigrant'.
An immigrant is someone who has a right to be here by law.
As I collapse with ennui over my keyboard -
FOR THE THOUSANDTH FRICKIN' TIME, HEFFER, JEAN CHARLES DE MENEZES DIDN'T HAVE PERMISSION TO BE HERE!
WHICH MEANS HE WASN'T AN 'IMMIGRANT'!

The family of Giles Van Colle, murdered by Ali Amalzadeh, have been awarded £50,000 compensation against Hertfordshire Police for failing to protect him.
Mr. Van Colle's father is reported as saying,
"We are the innocent victims of a catastrophic failure of an essential public service. We remain distraught at the way we have been treated.
"The ugly truth, which we finally learnt in June last year, is that Giles's death was preventable, had Dc Ridley been properly trained and carried out his job properly".

And one would be very interested to learn the precise immigration status of one Robert Ademunwi, the perpetrator of a fraud on the public purse so immense it managed to far surpass even Joy Henry's titanic efforts.
He committed the fraud while working as a 'trouble-shooter' in the Budget and Data Management Division of the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister - a post he obtained by falsifying his qualifications.
