I'm fed up with the amount of crime that we're importing. I fully support those fleeing persecution etc… but on too many occaisions the UK is seen as a safe haven for those with criminal intent (incl. terrorists).
Asylum seekers etc… should be required to sign up to a new class of citizenship, namely a probationer.The granting of full UK citizenship is discretionary after a minimum period of 5 years and would require the assent of the police (with no right of appeal) . As a Probationer, they will understand that shoudl they be convicted of any serious crime that their rights to UK citizenship would be forever revoked and that they (and their family unit) would be immediately deported, never to be allowed back into the UK. We should take both their fingerprints and DNA and store indefinitely.
