Immigration

This was written shortly after the first general election debate. If it wasn’t paraphrasing it wouldn’t be satire (it might be more subtle, but I was annoyed when I did it.)

After the death there was a “disturbance” which led to negotiations with the detainees. A UK Border Agency official accused them of  “trying to get their point of view across”.

Goodness me, we all know that the election ballot box is the only time it is appropriate to act on your political views.
