Working As Intended, Kamena…

Earlier this year, the government introduced a resident’s test which bars anyone, not a lawful resident for at least a year, from accessing legal aid.

Kamena Dorling, head of policy and programme at children’s charity, Coram, which offers support and assistance to young people, including those in Havering, explained the test affects current and failed asylum seekers.

Yes, no doubt. Isn’t that its purpose?

She said: “The residents test removes legal aid from a group of people.”

“I also think it will affect a much larger group than anyone would agree.”

*shrugs* So what?

The charity had seen a drop in the amount of cases it could help when legal aid support was first removed from certain areas of immigration law under the Legal Aid Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012.

Ah, I see. God forbid you fail to get handouts of taxpayer money to foist more refugees on us, eh, Kamena?

Kamena added that communities could see “increased levels of destitution and homelessness and people going underground.”

But we could also see decreased levels of economic refugees. Maybe ‘communities’ would be quite happy about that?

    I like to hear ” for at least a year” when the theme is immgrants, perhaps stretch that to ” 2 years” to help reduce the defecit.

      Better yet make it 5 years, not just for legal aid but most benefits as well.

      You wish!

      The EU has allegedly said that if the UK doesn’t take its quota of 90,000 ‘refugees’ the EU will stop us from deporting any failed asylum seekers.

      They’re not only closing the borders (due to the peoples’ demand) to keep them out, but also to keep them in. Most people probably don’t realise what they’re wishing for. When the gates close they will find that the Trojan Horse is already inside the walls. The enemy is already within……
