I find it difficult to understand the Home Offices's decision to refuse asylum to guys who have given service to the Military and probably saved countless lives over the years. These guys have risked their own lives and probably their families's lives as well doing what they think is right.

Britain 'inhumane and shameful' over asylum for Afghan interpreters (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2016/05/05/britain-inhumane-and-shameful-over-ayslum-for-afghan-interpreter/)
