Good enough when they want something!

The recent controversy surrounding the discovery that the British taxpayer is footing the bill for a family of former asylum seekers from Somalia who are living in a luxury town house in London reminds me that it’s exactly 50 years since the colony of British Somaliland became independent. David Cannadine – BBC Point of View column

I’ve always found it funny how, despite a nation wanting and receiving independence from our previous British colonialism, years after the event many still hanker after what they have lost. What surprises me even more is; once the UK has been told to feck off, we still provide support to all and sundry who come bleating at our door… Funny old world?
