British Couple Forced to Take in Criminal

This is government at it's finest.

In summary, a British  couple - both of whom have "learning disabilities" and are under the care of social workers - have been forced to take a criminal into their home upon the order of a court because, when he was given house arrest, he wrote down their address as his own (allegedly because he had the permission of the couple's sixteen year-old daughter to do so).  Neither they, nor the police, can get rid of him, because he's been confined to these people's house by the court.

As a side note, for a couple under state care, they seem to have a fairly nice TV.

At least the Brits remembered this man. Has anyone seen him mentioned in the Canadian media?

"Wing Commander 'Dal' Russel"


Wing Commander "Dal" Russel, who has died aged 89, was a highly decorated wartime Canadian fighter pilot whose log book recorded kills in the Battle of Britain and the Normandy invasion; he later led attacks on enemy rail and road transport as the Allies entered Germany and Holland.

Dal Russel: Johnnie Johnson said he exhibited ‘all the attributes of the conception of a fighter pilot’

Russel arrived in England in June 1940 with No 1 (RCAF) Squadron, the first Canadian unit to see action. Flying Hurricanes, it was declared operational in mid-August, and within 10 days Russel shared in the destruction of a Dornier bomber over Gravesend.

every time I read the stories in Western Standard like the one above I just thank what ever Gods may be that I left the country of my birth a very long time ago, and wonder why anyone stays in the great white north.
