Seems as though the Guardian, as well as some charities, are getting all hot under t’collar because the Home Office has made inroads into a database showing where EU citizens are supposed to have been sleeping rough, getting their mobile ‘heavy mobs’ into action, and arresting and deporting these characters who shouldn’t be here anyway.
But the best part is the charities are stating that the Home Office’s behaviour demonstrated a “crisis of compassion” within the UK’s political system. It is making an official complaint to the European commission.
This is because the Home Office is following the Law, and moving these people back to whence they came from.
Martha Spurrier, director of Liberty, said: “Vulnerable foreigners have been systematically targeted by a government obsessed with deportation, whatever the human cost. Children have been kept away from schools. Pregnant women and others in need of medical help are avoiding seeking it.
“Now even people forced to sleep on the streets will be frightened to seek support. Who knows where else the Home Office’s poisonous tentacles have reached? There is a crisis of compassion in our political system and it needs to be exposed and undone. The government must come clean and end these secret deals – or we will look to challenge them in court.”
