Prats of The Week - The UKBA

'Tis a grey September Monday morning, and therefore an ideal time to award one of my prestigious and internationally renowned "Prats of The Week" Awards.

This week it goes to our old chums in the UK Border Agency (UKBA), an organisation that has already featured on this site a couple of times.

Why therefore am I awarding them a "Prats of The Week"?

Ask Professor John Tulloch (70), who appeared on the front pages as one of the bloodied, dazed victims of the 7/7 London bombings.

The Prince of Wales visited him in hospital afterwards, and proclaimed him an example of the “resilience of the British people”.

The Telegraph notes that Prof Tulloch can trace his British ancestry back to the 14th century, was born to British parents in a British colony. He has a British wife, children and brother. He was raised and educated in Britain from the age of three, has substantial assets and property here and has lived or worked in the UK for most of his life, holding a series of posts at British universities. He even held a British passport.

However, he was born to a British Army officer in pre-independence India. This makes him a “British subject without citizenship”.

Professor Tulloch took a job in Australia and was granted Australian citizenship. Unknown to him, this automatically cancelled both his British nationality and his right to live in Britain. 

Can you guess what happened next children?

Yes, that's right, when he applied to renew his British passport, it was confiscated.
Ironically he was able to return to the UK, where he has held a professorship of communications at Brunel and was head of the School of Journalism at Cardiff University, under a work permit and has spent the majority of his time in recent years in this country.

However, as he is about to semi retire, he has now been told by the UKBA that he can no longer permanently remain here and can only visit for brief periods as a tourist. He cannot apply for naturalisation.

Professor Tulloch would have more chance of staying here if he had been a perpetrator, rather than a victim, of terrorism. Just ask Ismail Abdurahman, a Somali convicted of providing a safe house for the would-be 21/7 bomber, Hussain Osman, who was excused deportation after serving his prison sentence on the grounds that his human rights would be at risk if he was returned to Somalia.

A UKBA is quoted:
It is the responsibility of an individual to check that they will not lose a previously acquired nationality or citizenship on acquiring an additional one.” 
The UKBA, well deserving Prats of The Week!

    I hate this bloody country. All these minions and government peole are OUR EMPLOYEES not our bosses. It's about time we told them all to fuck off - maybe stick them all on a boat and send it off to sail the oceans because nobody else would want them either!!! Bastards

    Why is it they bend over backwards to defend the "human rights" of terorists, criminals and illegal immigrants, but are meticulous in deporting decent people like Professor Tulloch? Their priorities are warped, cockeyed (can I say that here, Ken?) and twisted!
