“Your case illustrates all too clearly the completely LAX IMMIGRATION POLICY that exists and has existed over recent years. People like you, and THERE ARE LITERALLY HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE LIKE YOU, COME TO THESE SHORES TO AVAIL THEMSELVES OF THE GENEROUS WELFARE BENEFITS THAT EXIST HERE.Sir Andrew Green, founder of think-tank Migrationwatch, applauded Judge Trigger‘s outburst thus:
In the past ten years THE NATIONAL DEBT OF THIS COUNTRY HAS RISEN TO EXTRAORDINARY HEIGHTS, LARGELY BECAUSE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT HAS WASTED BILLIONS OF POUNDS. MUCH OF THAT HAS BEEN WASTED ON WELFARE PAYMENTS.
For every £1 that the decent citizen, who is hard-working, pays in taxes, nearly 10 PER CENT GOES ON SERVICING THAT NATIONAL DEBT. THAT IS TWICE THE AMOUNT IT WAS IN 1997 WHEN THIS GOVERNMENT CAME TO POWER… The fact that it took nearly two years to process your claim shows how desperate the situation in this country has become.”
“HE IS EXPRESSING A SENSE OF FRUSTRATION WHICH IS VERY WIDELY FELT AMONG THE PUBLIC. And it is courageous of him to do so… I HAVE LOST COUNT OF THE NUMBER OF MAGISTRATES WHO HAVE TOLD ME PRIVATELY OF THEIR CONCERNS ABOUT THE NUMBER OF IMMIGRANTS COMING BEFORE THEM and the difficulties in finding an appropriate penalty, if convicted, when they have no money and our jails are full.”Susie Squire, campaign manager of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, concurred, saying:
“JUDGE TRIGGER HAS VOICED THE CONCERNS OF MANY TAXPAYERS AROUND THE COUNTRY. THEY ARE FED UP WITH SEEING THEIR MONEY DOLED OUT TO ANYONE WHO ASKS FOR IT WHILE ALL THE TIME BEING PLUNGED DEEPER INTO DEBT BY THE GOVERNMENT’S BAD FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT.”McClearley came to England in November 2001 on a visitor's visa, was arrested in October 2002 after it ran out, but claimed asylum and was released while this was being processed.
He then 'disappeared from the radar of the authorities,' like so many others. That such an establishment figure would dare to say it like it is when so many of his ilk have chosen not to do so, speaks worlds for the dire state our country is really in. When the bewigged big shots start sounding like the average bewildered citizen, it’s time the PC Crowd skedaddled before the death penalty is reintroduced for treason!
On 5 August 2009, The Times reported thus:
"A senior judge who described Britain’s immigration system as 'completely lax' IS TO FACE AN INVESTIGATION. Judge Ian Trigger said last week that 'hundreds and hundreds of thousands' of illegal immigrants were abusing the benefits system. The Lord Chief Justice, Lord Judge, has asked the Office for Judicial Complaints to rule on whether the comments were too political. The decision will be made jointly by Lord Judge and the Lord Chancellor, Jack Straw."If a traitorous, PC Champion like Jack Straw is to decide Judge Trigger's fate it looks like yet another off-message truth-teller is for the high jump.
On 10 July 2009, Richard Littlejohn commended Judge Trigger's remark's thus:
"As the judge correctly observed, 31-year old McClearley's case is a classic example of Britain's chaotic immigration system. It not only illustrates the deliberate dismantling of border controls by Labour, but also the near impossibility of deporting anyone who is in the country illegally...
Following his detention, he then played his Joker - the ubiquitous Get Out Of Jail Free card which has allowed countless foreign nationals with no legitimate claim to be here to live in Britain indefinitely... If he's got any sense, McClearley will claim he's a homosexual and will face persecution if he's sent home. Don't laugh. It's worked for another Jamaican drugs dealer. She's just won her appeal against deportation on the grounds that she's a lesbian.
I told you about the case a few weeks ago. The woman - who we're not even allowed to identify on human rites grounds - had a string of boyfriends before her conviction in 2005. But for the past four years 'she has been in a series of exclusively lesbian relationships', the Court of Appeal heard. That's because she's been in an all-women prison. Not a lot of opportunity in Holloway for a booty call from one of the local gangstas... Yet Lord Justice Goldring gave her the benefit of the doubt, saying:
'That is, on its face, cogent evidence she is a lesbian, or predominantly a lesbian. What might have begun as experimentation could have ended with it being her sole or predominant sexual orientation'...
Lord Justice Goldring is precisely the kind of right-on judge to which we've become accustomed under Labour. They all seem to have been hand-picked by the Wicked Witch. That's why the remarks by Judge Ian Trigger at Liverpool Crown Court were so refreshing. AT LAST, HERE WAS A JUDGE IN TOUCH WITH THE REAL WORLD AND PREPARED TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION…
The Lord Chief Justice has now ordered an inquiry into whether the remarks 'extended overtly into the political arena'. If found guilty, Judge Trigger could be reprimanded or even removed from the bench. So much for the independence of the judiciary. Instead of persecuting this honest jurist, he should be promoted.
I'm surprised Judge Trigger hasn't been SMEARED AS A... BNP RACIST. THAT'S THE USUAL TREATMENT METED OUT TO ANYONE WHO TELLS THE TRUTH ABOUT LABOUR.
THE FULL APPARATUS OF GOVERNMENT IS DEPLOYED TO DESTROY DISSENTERS. ENTER THE COUNTRY ILLEGALLY, STEAL, SELL DRUGS, FORGE PASSPORTS AND YOU'LL BE LAVISHED WITH UNLIMITED LEGAL AID, BENEFITS AND SYMPATHY. SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT AND THEY WILL TRY TO RUIN YOU. UNDER NEW LABOUR, THE MOST HEINOUS CRIME ANYONE CAN COMMIT IS TELLING THE TRUTH ABOUT THE WICKEDNESS OF THE PAST 12 YEARS."
