“As civilisation becomes more complex, and as the need for invisible government has been increasingly demonstrated, the technical means have been invented and developed by which the public opinion may be regimented. With printing press and newspapers, the telephone, telegraph, radio and airplanes, ideas can be spread rapidly and even simultaneously, across the whole of America.

We are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.

There is no such thing as an independent press- John Swinton

“There is no such thing as a free press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares write your honest opinions and if you did, you know beforehand that it would  never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinion out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone.

The business of journalism is to destroy the truth, to lie outright, to pervert, to vilify, to fawn at the feet at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it, and what folly is this toasting an independent press?

We are the tools of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes.

John Swinton – Toasting at the New York Press Club in 1953 (Journalist)

 

As true today as when it was written, probably, no, inevitably more so.

The cruel and unusual case of Yashika Bageerathi

Image

Yesterday saw the deportation of Yashika Bageerathi from the UK, back to Mauritius in a case that albeit has a sound legal standpoint goes to show that there is a very wide line between what is legally right and what is morally right.

Yashika was enrolled in Oasis Academy Hadley where she was due to take her “A-Levels” (Advanced test in the UK) from May 14th to July 23rd. But on March 19th 2014 she was taken from her family and friends and placed in Yarl’s Wood immigration removal centre. At 21:00 GMT she was taken on board the plane to Mauritius and flown back to her country of origin.

Yashika and her family came to the United Kingdom in 2011 to escape a violent uncle who was physically abusive, and claimed asylum in 2013. As Yashika was 18 her case was to be looked at separately due to her age, the rest of the family would be considered together.

175,000 signatures were signed on a petition to keep Yashika and her family in the UK and her school also battled to save her from deportation. But after “careful consideration” Yashika, a “talented” maths student was ejected from the country.

The careful consideration must have taken into account that the UK is signed up to the European Convention on Human Rights and as such has obligations to meet the basic needs of people living within the country.  They are also signatories to the 1951 Refugee convention 

COULD MORE HAVE BEEN DONE?

The 1951 refugee convention states that a person can be so called a refugee if they need protection from persecution for

Political Opinion

Race, Religion or Nationality

or have membership of a particular social group that puts them at risk of that particular situation in the country they are fleeing.

Indeed women can be classed as a social group as was seen in a 1999 case of two Pakistani women who fled violent husbands as they could not protect themselves.

In Yashika’s case it could have been argued that this is indeed the case. A nineteen year old on her own going back to nothing with no family support and also maybe back to more violence.

Perhaps if the family were deported as a whole this view could be counteracted on that basis. Alas the UK saw fit to remove her before she could complete her exams as she did not at nineteen fit into the protection a child at at school under the age of 18 would have, but they would be removed at a later date.

Conclusion

Rather than the UK immigration service showing that they are getting tough on immigration they seemed to have picked a soft target in Yashika Bageerathi, it’s an easy deportation if you will.  Well documented are the long, protracted cases of Omar Bakri Muhammad and Abu Hamza who have both now been deported from the country.

Are we to believe that these two clerics of hate who preached on street corners about implementing Sharia Law inciting racial hatred have been afforded more protection under UK and international law, than a family and a young lady who just wanted to advance herself and gain qualifications that could have allowed her to attend university?

Are we to now think that illegal immigrants and sexual predators who’s deportation from the UK has been stopped for Human rights reasons are more valid than a girl who wanted to become something more and fit into society to the detriment of no citizen of that country?

If that is the case then the UK is on very shaky ground indeed, they have sullied their name in the eyes of a lady who could have become a great asset to the country, but instead have for reasons of scoring political capital denied someone to further their education and have a solid foundation for a sound future.

Moreover, there are elements of society in the UK that do agree with the way this was handled : Taken from The Daily Mail and Mumsnet

Really?

DV is not a reason for asylum.

A good sob story is not a reason to overturn any legal ruling.

Mauritius is not a 3rd world country, at war or in any other way a dangerous place for this girl or her family. She can finish her education there, it is a relatively affluent, middle class country with free education. It’s political and social mores are based on the UK!

Too much heart rending woe is me isms for my liking.

Oh, Change aren’t asking for anything. It is a hosting site for petitions. I suspect the girl, her family and friends set up the petition. The Americans who own Change have probably never heard of her!

Your country needs you more than we do, good luck and goodbye.

Thus the Home offices ruling that there were “no exceptional nature” to her case had ripped asunder a family who remain in the UK, torn down the aspirations of Yashika and sent her home, alone with no support structure after effectively being locked up in a detention centre for weeks tantamount to a criminal.

She was left in her own words “fearing for her life” asking her mother if there would be someone in Mauritius to meet her off the plane, and also allegedly making her sit eight seats away from anyone so she could not ask for help, and also on twitter from @OAH6thform Yashika was refused food to make her weak, but this is not confirmed.

If her family were going to be deported they should have all been considered together as they are a family, and maybe this wouldn’t seem as disgraceful as it does, but for now we have a young woman who is “really upset and absolutely devastated” alone, without her family and without a chance to complete her exams in the most conducive and comfortable environment possible. This is the cruel and unusual case of Yashika Bageerathi
