“We've got standards in this country, of the sorts of values that we expect from those who have the privilege of coming here.
"I think it’s right that we uphold those standards, that’s the basis on which we make decisions about unacceptable behaviour.”
Not my words but those of Jacqui Smith – the British Home Secretary.
This is the woman who has cheated the British tax payer out of thousands of pounds through her expenses, even charged for a sink plug and her husband’s sex movies. She is also responsible for the debacle over the Ghurkhas – well the list goes on and on.
So when the British public makes a decision about unacceptable behaviour she’ll be out on her ear. Needless to say Gormless Brown says she is doing a good job!
By the by Ms Smith made the comments after banning US shock jock Michael Savage from entering the UK. Have to admit that before now I have never heard of him – and have never listened to his show – which I doubt Ms Smith has either.
Should he be banned from Britain? Savage is not to my taste but to put him on any banned list let alone the “16 least wanted” is ridiculous – but then so is Ms Smith.
There was a time when Britain was the home of free speech. Ms Smith shames us – but there is nothing new there!
