- Do I suspect an American influence here?
- If it is true that Ms Hirsi Ali had knowingly and deliberately falsified her documents for the sole purpose of procuring asylum – even if ‘Iron Rita’ had found a legal loophole that would allow the Somali-born woman to stay – why has ‘Iron Rita’ mentioned this in the parliament?
- Why has ‘Iron Rita’ changed her stance?
- Should Ms Hirsi Ali be given access to that loophole and if successful – permitted to remain indefinitely?
- What signal that would send to those law abiding genuinely persecuted applicants in the rest of the World?
Notwithstanding the fact that I champion equality of access, information and treatment for all those disadvantaged – I certainly do not take kindly to those who take the p**s out of the benevolent countries or (in more polite language) bite the hand that feeds. For me – being firm but fair – is being just that.
