Buy a cat and get to stay in Britain
Just when you thought that the Nu-Labour regime couldn't get any more cack-handed than they are already, they up and surprise you by taking their incompetence to a whole new level.
So it is with the case of a Bolivian whom the government wished to deport. The man appealed to a Nu-Labour body called the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal which ruled that he can continue to bless the UK with his presence because he and his girlfriend had bought a cat.
Yes, you read that correctly: a fucking cat. Some Bolivian has been given special leave to remain in the UK and one of the factors that he offered as proof of a serious relationship with the bird that he is shacked up with is that they have a moggy.
Needless to say, neither the Bolivian nor the cat have been named, presumably to protect their privacy.
