So now there’s still some time to fight it, even as the British government makes clear their policy of deporting dissidents to Uzbekistan if they don’t qualify for asylum – knowing full well they will be tortured upon their return.
The process was fast-tracked, which means evidence was ignored and defense had but a week to prepare. Was that a kangaroo I saw jumping by?
The judge’s behaviour was a disgrace, and let me be plain I do have contempt of her court, deep contempt. But she was merely indicative of the general mindset of the “Fast-track”, a disgraceful device by which the government seeks to curry favour with the tabloids by increasing deportation numbers.
Boosting New Labour with focus groups infinitely outweighs the torture to death of the odd dissident.
