Windrush scandal caused by ‘30 years of racist immigration laws’ – report | Windrush scandal | The Guardian


Exclusive: legislation has been designed to reduce the UK’s non-white population, according to leaked government paper

============================================

Unfortunately this report does not surprise me as we have had reports after reports that there is institutional racism in many of our UK organisations, some of these organisations are masquerading as police forces, but the higher echelons in those forces did not fully agree.

But ‘Windrush’, even after all the atrocities their descendants went through under ‘Slavery’, they were still prepared to come to the UK in the 50s when they were asked to help us in our ‘hour of need’ to find that many in the UK resented them coming. But, even after that they did what they promised to do and worked exceedingly well to help the UK and when they could afford to they brought their families to the UK and they to did all they can to help the UK while having to undergo extreme and very ugly racism attacks.

When they came they were British citizens and did not need official papers to travel to the UK, just as we didn’t need papers to travel for where they came from, many from the West Indies were an extension of the UK throughout the UK, they were British citizens as anyone was and still is in the UK.

They were fairly content in the UK and so didn’t apply for formal recognition as many others who were actually born in the 4 countries of the UK did not. Only those who wished to travel outside the UK applied for passports and these were the lucky ones for they did have then formal documents to show they were UK citizens.

But due to immigration laws passed while they were residing in the UK, and the attitudes of some in the Home Office and certain Government Ministers it came that officially they couldn’t easily prove that they were British citizens, even though if these Home Office officials and Government Ministers were bothered to check employment records the proof was there.

So, many were illegally classed as being here illegally, which was so wrong. They trusted the UK and that trust was severely broken.

Many were even illegally deported to a land they left many years ago to help the UK, where what roots they had there were no more, they were deported to be on their own as their friends were near them in the UK.

It makes me so ashamed to say I am British,  and those who allowed this to occur should be made accountable, perhaps even shipped off to lands they don’t know and don’t know anyone.

It was and still is a scandal which should not have occurred or been allowed to occur.

The UK owes everyone who was caught up in this scandal and everyone should be recompensed immediately not in weeks, months or even years, but immediately.

The various UK Governments concerned and the Home Office Officials need to pay for causing this scandal, but ‘lessons are not learnt’, no they never are, for to learn there needs to be a willingness to learn and that is not there, so other scandals occur, evacuation from Afghanistan to name but one and more are still to occur. It is abuse of power and no caring.
