Justice? For whom?

Sometimes I wonder if the powers that be are deliberately trying to cause massive civil unrest in this country so they can step in with a brutal authoritarian regime, remove what few bits of democracy we have left and leave themselves as (very rich) kings of the hill lording it over an impoverished underclass who are grateful that the trains run on time and naughty people vanish without trace*. Other days like today I'm certain of it.
An asylum seeker who raped a woman and dumped her on a rubbish tip when he was 'finished' has been freed despite Home Office attempts to deport him.
Alphonse Semo, 54, was jailed for eight years for the rape and at the end of his term was due to be sent back to the Congo.
However two hours before his flight he was given permission to marry his girlfriend and stay in the country.
Now a judge has allowed the father-of-five to be released from an immigration detention centre.
He has been fitted with an electronic tag and is required to check in regularly with the authorities.
The Home Office is still fighting to have Semo removed but he has applied for judicial review and the case could take the courts years to resolve.
Semo was told three years ago that he would be deported after serving the prison sentence he was handed in 2002.However, a Home Office blunder meant he was granted permission to wed his girlfriend, another refugee from the Democratic Republic of Congo who became a German national, hours before he was to be sent back to Africa.
In any sort of civilised system, the question and various appeals wouldn't even arise, he committed a violent sex crime, was found guilty, he should go. Married or not, his Mrs could go with him if she wanted too (at her own expense) But no, this is the UK today where views which appear to be common sense to me are regarded by the liberal leftist elite morons pervading the various institutions of the state as being somewhat akin to those of Attila the Hun, save only that Attila being a foreigner would have more rights than you or I would. Most of this boils down to Labours introduction of the most divisive and subversive legislation aka the Human Rights Act, which is all about protecting the rights of criminals rather than honest folk. Yes I know the same rights (supposedly) apply to all, yet when the law is used to uphold an injustice and an affront to decency (the rights of the criminal as opposed to the rights of the victim) then there is something seriously wrong with the law. What rights you hold should be equated to what responsibilities you have, in that a law abiding immigrant need have no fear of being victimised or thrown out of the country whereas a criminal immigrant should fear such an outcome as it would be inevitable.
Alphonse Semo should not be here, end of. In any just society he wouldn't, which says a lot about the society Labour created for us.
