No Deportations

There was at least one good thing about the Icelandic volcano eruption that closed Eurpean airspace and that was, it temporarily, stopped deportations from the UK.

Now an Iranian woman gets a welcome reprieve from deportation to Iran.
[Bita] Ghaedi has spoken out against sharia law, forced marriage and human rights abuses in Iran. She has also criticised the regime on TV channels widely available across the Middle East. These actions, along with her public support of the PMOI (People's Mujahedin of Iran), which is opposed to the Iranian regime, are enough to put her life in danger if she is deported, according to Zadshir and her lawyer.

In his ruling, Mr Justice Nicol said that given the "very considerable amount of further information which has been supplied, concerning (in particular) the claimant's association with Iranian opposition groups and the subsequent publicity given thereto", the court should hear her renewed application for judicial review.
Now to get the deportation permanently stopped.

Dave C

I looked up cameron in the dictionary

As Caitlin Moran reportedly said, "Dave Cameron looks like C3Po made of ham". Close your eyes and the image is there. Now, how do I get rid of it?

Vote Labour - if only to keep out the Tories

Thanks to Will I have rediscovered this post from the last election.

Life under a Labour administration is bearable as it gives something to campaign against.
Life under a Tory administration would be so vile that life is despairing for those caught in its binds.

Vote Labour. They're not as depressing as the Tories.
That's my motivation.
