It seems as if Monty Python has taken over the British government without telling anybody, and is ruling Britain according to a governing philosophy of absurdism. I was banned from Britain for saying that Islam had a doctrine of warfare against unbelievers, but just days before that, the British government admitted Saudi Sheikh Mohammed al-Arefe. Al-Arefe has said: “Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood, to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer. Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be unable to prepare to fight.”
And now they are texting illegal immigrants (including who knows how many Islamic jihadists). As Blazing Cat Fur says, “They can text them but they can’t arrest & deport them?” It is hard to avoid the conclusion that the entire British government is a big joke, a put-on, and that John Cleese is soon going to take off his David Cameron mask and reveal the whole thing.
More than 140 complaints have been received by the Home Office and a private contractor over communications sent to suspected illegal immigrants.
A total of 39,100 text messages have been sent by Capita on behalf of the Government as part of a contract to track down a pool of about 58,800 individuals who may not have the right to live in the UK.
Between December 2012 and June this year, a total of 143 complaints were received in relation to texts and other communications, of which 14 were found to have been made in error.
The text message reads: “Message from the Home Office. Our records show that you may not have leave to remain in the UK. Please contact us on 0844 3754636 to discuss your case.”
A Home Office spokesman said: “We are taking proactive steps to contact individuals who records show have no valid right to be in the UK, some of which date back to December 2008. We believe it is right to enforce the immigration rules.
“Out of thousands of people contacted by Capita, a small number have been found to have the right to be in the UK or an outstanding application. Anyone contacted in error has been asked to get in touch with Capita to update their records.”
Earlier this year, the Home Office came under fire for using ads, displayed on billboards carried by vans in six London boroughs, reading “In the UK illegally? Go Home or face arrest.”
David Hanson MP, Labour’s shadow immigration minister, said: “These messages will rightly cause distress and offence to British citizens, many of whom have done much to contribute to our society.
“It is simply wrong for this sort of message to be sent by text, and to be so poorly targeted.”…
