Heard on LGW GMC this morning, fire service reported they were 'removing a stowaway' from Ghana 757. Stand 130 had fire/ambulance attendance and what appeared to be screening around the left main gear, with AFS asking ATC to keep other aircraft away from the area.
To those posters who seem to find something amusing in the death of another. You are a sick pack of ghouls. The poor person obviously was desperate to escape from a rotten life. Hang your heads in shame those who joke about this event and those who allow such trash to be posted.
Old Fella, The problem in the UK is that we were full decades ago. Our country is overpopulated with high unemployment. We cannot afford to pay handouts at the present rate. Unlike many of our huggy fluffs I am prepared to court unpopularity by saying so. As a result I am proud to have been called a racist and bigot for pointing out the elephant in the room which most pretend to ignore.
France, for instance, is much less densely populated but illegal immigrants seem to wish to leave there and come to the UK - I wonder why? Australia may look underpopulated but, as you will know, has a very low percentage of habitable land coupled with a potential water shortage.
Basil I fully understand your situation and I also believe that illegal entrants cannot be tolerated. Our previous PM John Howard had a much more practical approach to the problem than does the present incumbent. That said, I found the so called jokes posted by some others to be in poor taste. I am no bleeding heart as anyone who knows me would attest to, however I find it difficult to see any justification in joking about the death of some poor beggar trying to escape from a rotten life, even if he did try to get into the UK illegally. Cheers.
