I just give up. What on earth is the point in working and paying taxes? Because I have to I guess. But some folks have an easier life. Davodreza Asasbahi-Gotti is a 37 year old Iranian who came to Britain in 2002. He lives on benefits and has his housing bills paid for via benefits. And he has now committed 40 crimes in the UK including theft and assaulting a police officer. He was set to be thrown out in 2009 but claimed it was (you guessed) a breach of his human rights … it “would breach his right for respect to private and family life.” But then it turned out that he did not – as he claimed – have a wife and two kids living here at all. That was a lie.
And so now his lawyers (paid for on legal aid ‘natch) are claiming that it is a breach of his human rights to stay here as he is a drug addict and suffers from depression as a result of “developed adjustment disorder” – whatever that is.
So to summarise. He arrived in the UK illegally. He has lived off your taxes for more than a decade. He has repeatedly lied to stay in the UK. He has committed 40 crimes and been convicted. He has never worked and is a drug addict. And yet…
He remains in the UK costing taxpayers tens of thousands of pounds via benefits, legal aid and by committing crimes. He contributes nothing to the UK and we still cannot throw him out. As you go to work tomorrow just remember that more than a third of your pay packet is going to fund this sort of nonsense.
