Is This The Way . . . .

"Is this the way to Amarillo? No, Great Britain!"

A semi-political post/rant today on a very topical thing - the Afghan Hijackers allowed to stay in Britain! Basically ( BBC News Website ) some Afghans (people, not the dogs) hijacked a plain and landed at Stanstead Airport, which is Britains third busiest airport. There were about 160 hostages. That is one hundred and sixty innocent people caught up in the middle of this horific ordeal.

Why did this happen? Well, the hijackers wanted asylum in Britain. So nothing was really heard of this until this week when some out of touch Judge decided to say "yeah stay in Britain until its safe for you to go back to Afghanistan"

I quite like The Suns front cover today which basically says ...

"Come to Britain and get money, a house, benefits, NHS, all you need is a gun and a plane"

Sadly this is true. Our incredibally fluffy country seems to be a great place for people to come and sponge! Now I have no problem if asylum seekers come to Britain, and do the outrageous thing (sarcasm) of applying for asylum like the tens/hundreds/thousands of others do.

Hijacking a plane, holding loads of people hostage for FOUR days is not the way to do it. I think it is absolutely disgusting that such people are allowed to stay in Britain until it is safe for THEM to go home!!! Lets talk about safety shall we then . .
Did these hostages feel safe held on a cramped plane for four days with guns to their head? I doubt it, I certainly wouldnt! Would you?

Ok another view point then, what if myself and my fellow bloggers decided to hijack a plane and land claiming asylum in Afghanistan as it was not safe for us to return to the UK due to it being unsafe as PSD were after us all for "bringing our forces into disrepute" would we be granted asylum? Hell no, we would be coming home in a box!

I do wonder about our country sometimes! its all very politically correct which yeah fair enough it is needed in moderation, but I swear it will be the downfall of our once wonderful country!

Sorry for having a news story/political post but I was not sure what to write about this week! As always please do leave comments about how you feel on this topic!

How did they get on the plane anyway with guns?
There are many many more questions to be asked.
Yeah, kick them out of the country but to where?
fly them back over? one or two at a time... too many and if they all kick off...
