European Court Gets tough with Jamaican Criminal

A Jamaican convicted criminal who fathered four children by four different women in Britain has lost his legal battle against deportation.
Joseph Grant, who spent 34 years in Britain, argued the decision breached his right to a private family life.
The 48-year-old was deported after a string of convictions for drug offences, violence, theft and robbery.
On Thursday, the European Court of Human Rights ruled his deportation had been 'proportionate and necessary in a democratic society' given his long pattern of offending.

My God!
Has the world gone mad!

A convicted criminal, with many illegitimate children - and a Jamaican to boot - got kicked out of the country (that in itself is shocking enough nowadays), but he appealed to the European Court of Human Rights - and lost!!!!!!!!!

You could knock me down with a spliff.

They'll be using it as an example of how tough they are for the next ten years, hoping it will hide the number of criminals they let in.
