A young man appeared on Good Morning Britain this morning with a letter ordering him to leave the uk within 10 days or be jailed.
He was born and reared in the uk and is as much a uk citizen as Theresa May!
Now it transpires that it was an error which was "apologised for" in a curt email from the Home Office.
This country is run by a clown government and a Home Office that is totally incompetent.
These are the people who are negotiating our exit from the E U. God help us!

an error, errors are made.
Mistakes happen - that's why they put rubbers on the end of pencils.

One instance of human error does not automatically guarantee that the entire Home Office and Government are incompetent.

Don't get me wrong, there are powerful arguments to back up that viewpoint - but this instance is not one of them.
Tora and I cross-posted, but clearly he sees this the same as I do - an error, nothing more than that.
" this Country is run by a clown government" ,
Have to agree with you Needawin.
there you go needawin, soul mate for you!
Surely this was a mistake by a civil servant.
"Errors are made" "an error nothing more than that"
What a load of Rowlocks ! INCOMPETENCE is the word you were
looking for!

If that was the word I was looking for, that is the word I would have used - it wasn't so, I didn't.
"the home office" is made up of just people. the people that write the letters are probably lowly, poorly paid admin staff. Someone pressed the wrong button, that's all
"This country is run by a clown government..."

And your proposed alternative would be...?
Errors/mistakes are made, no big deal - I wonder if such tolerance is exhibited every time one is made and regardless of its weight.
Knowing something is wrong is not the same as being responsible for coming up with a solution.
Maybe it was indeed an error................or someone employed in the Home Office who cannot resist seizing an opportunity to create dissonance. Be the same individual who "grants" citizenship to criminal illegals no doubt. Question is... who is taking this toerag down? The civil service is riddled with disaffected 5th columnists. How else could you explain the constant repeat of both twisted scenarios?

Lol that is the second funniest thing I have read today!

I, and everyone else who has posted, had made no inference that the error was unimportant.

The importance of an error is variable, but errors still happen.
"Knowing something is wrong is not the same as being responsible for coming up with a solution."

I'm not suggesting the OP should be responsible for coming up with a solution (though as, presumably, he is part of the UK's electorate, it could be argued that he is). I'm simply asking what alternative he might propose. It's easy to say "This is no good, that is rubbish, they are useless". But it doesn't make for a very fruitful debate.

"//The civil service is riddled with disaffected 5th columnists//

I'd share in your amusement were such a suggestion not so plausible.
It's likely that this wasn't due to some pen-pushing jobsworth Home Office official. I would wager that this was down to a miskeyed entry into a database on their mainframe.

The government handles millions of records about all of us, and computers don't make mistakes. Coders, developers, systems administrators and testers make mistakes.

Sometimes these mistakes come to light in cases like these.
I am still waiting for the letter sending me back to the lands of my immigrant grandmother....I love France...of course the other grandmother was foreign but she stayed put in Wales.
needawin, You don't seem to understand that, regardless of the flavour of government, the Civil Service is the Civil Service. Nothing changes with elections.

Tell Gulliver that will you. She's over-excited. Jumping on your wonky bandwagon has done that I expect.
