Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse

The human rights lawyers and their tame judges have allowed various criminals and other scum to remain in the UK for various reasons including the right to a family life, when common sense tells most people that the correct judgement should have been bye bye, see you in hell. However a recent judgement has just opened a new floodgate.

A Bangladeshi student has won the right to remain in the UK - after he declared that his love of cricket proved that he was committed to British life.
And there are now concerns that the controversial ruling could open the floodgates for thousands of foreign students to remain in the UK after completing their college courses.
Abdullah Munawar, 23, who has been studying in London, applied to have his three-year student visa renewed in 2010, but was turned down by the Home Office.
However, the accountancy student appealed that ruling, telling the Upper Tribunal of the Immigration and Asylum Chamber that he deserved to remain in the UK because he played cricket at weekends and had also formed friendships with students and work colleagues.
That's right, a love of cricket and a couple of friendships made is enough to turn over a visa refusal and to rub salt in the wound, the judge ruled that the initial refusal of a visa renewal 'amounted to a disproportionate interference with private life that deserved respect'.
In other words someone who has outstayed their welcome can just claim that they have a few mates, like cricket and they have to be allowed to remain and we're supposed to accept this as a just solution?
Mr Munawar now hopes to get a job with an accountancy firm and has plans to take part in an arranged marriage after his imam lined up a potential bride.
No doubt the bride, her family, possibly village and tribe all living in Bangladesh and now with a potential entry visa into the UK as they'll all have a few mates and love cricket.
The comments in the Mail are as ever quite illuminating.
