    it's starting to sound like a Yes Minister script they rejected as so far fetched no one would ever believe it.

    I'm not locked in here with you, you are locked in here with me.

    Breaking News: Windrush Generation Immigration Landing Cards Found

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5640647/Arrival-records-tens-thousands-Windrush-generation-found.html

    So the records were available after all where they should be found - the National Archives.
     
    This is turning into a Home Office farce.
    Not quite. The NA files are landing ledgers, not cards.
    Clarity over quantity.

    No .. the landing cards were destroyed. These are Board of Trade records.

    Going forward lots of personal information will have to be destroyed due to GDPR rules and the right to be forgotten. And the twat at the National Archives rant has convinced me that all my data will be destroyed when I die. He and his chums aren't getting it.

    This is scandalous.
     The woman is 81 and the Tories have destroyed her life.
    This damage cannot be repaired.

    Interesting. If you check other articles she's been in Jamaica since 2009 - when Gretel arrived at Tilbury Docks in East London, aged 24, all those years ago, she had a Jamaican ­passport with a stamp inside giving her indefinite leave to remain.

    But that document was stolen in a 2006 burglary at her house in Lambeth. She applied for a new one and her daughter Pauline ­Blackwood immediately filed a police report.

    The authorities told Gretel she would not be given a UK passport and if she left Britain she would need to apply for a visa on her new Jamaican passport.

    This was on Labour's watch after which it would simply have been a procedural civil service matter so I doubt it was ever brought to May's attention.

    And .. her children have tried to gather the evidence of her residency on her behalf but at every turn, they say, they have been blocked. It took a year for Pauline (daughter) to get a meeting with a Lambeth council (Labour) director who promised to help as they hold her housing records but she claims nothing has happened.

    Total incompetence at all levels from Tory run Home Office top Labour run Lambeth Council.

    Chosen a left-wing paper for balance.

    It doesn't reflect well on the UK but neither Labour nor the Tories come out of this well. It was Labour that wanted ID cards to help control immigrants and access to services like the NHS.

    I was against ID cards until I experienced their use overseas. Wholly support them now, if you aren't up to no good they are a great idea and would help out greatly with things like NHS abuses and benefit fraud. 

    As you were on the OP though, May is still an idiot.

    .....and what to my wondering eyes should appear.....      nothing.......

    That's an insult to the many idiots who are actually harmless. Hopefully she'll be gone next year ...
