    This person has committed a criminal offence by entering the UK illegally. His 'punishment' is an approved asylum application, one that he should have made in the first peaceful country he 'escaped' to, together with all the benefits that go with it. Why? Why are his actions not criminal? Why is he allowed to stay? And what message does it send out? Make it to Britain any way you want, and you can stay entirely at our expense. I'm sure no others will try this as it obviously doesn't work. And yet our own citizens are denied things they need, like housing. Is this right?
