  2. Murder suspect!
    Started by gsgsgs 19/09/2014

    Why is a Latvian with a murder conviction and a suspicion of under-age sex allowed to be in the UK? EU law says he can, so in 3 years if we have a conservative government will they keep their promise of a referendum on the UK leaving the EU!
