    All I have to say about this, that in the 60’s. & 70’s all Guyana’s crimes were choke. & rob. Where do you supposed that the Guyanese folks got contaminated with the so call sophiscated world of. North America, look what’s happening in the US with the crazy lions and their right to bear arms, even in England, so I am not saying that what they do is ok, but guess where they got all this rubbish bin behavior

    deportation should never be an embarrassment…for the individuals concerned should obey the laws of their adopted countries of residence…
    if I wish to go to TIMBUCTU I must make it my business to understand the culture/politricks/laws of that country…if however I visit these countries as a tourist….I must also expect to be treated like a tourist….not as a common criminal…or in some cases an “alien”.
    economic migrants should be treated as such … even welcomed more as
    they usually only wish to work and pay their taxes….better themselves and their lives…..once they are accepted for whatever reason they should be treated with equal fairness by the authorities even with a qualifying period of “good behaviour” !…the world has changed is changing and will change.
    Skills that are needed in some countries may be in “shortage” in another.
    I support the movement of goods services and people as in EUROLAND
    but opposed the closed shop approach to “trade” …
    As a trade unionist I fought some long and hard battles in the workplace
    in UK Royal Mail not only with management but also within my own union.
    I even refused to allow a deduction of my union fees to go towards the LABOUR
    party or any political affiliations…..my convictions were strong.

    Economic migrants are a “loss” to their country of departure
    A “gain” or “profit” to their adopted countries of entry.

    Especially the 18-25 YO age group…

    BRAZIL will prosper as more than half of its population is in that category.
    INDIA will also prosper for a similar reason.
    CHINA will not for the opposite reason…


    CHINA discourages baby booms at their peril.

    1.1 babies per couple will only lead to “stagnation” economically
    Parents must be allowed to make the decision on how many children they wish
    to have….the state should encourage or discourage but not control.

    sorry I strayed from the DEPORTATION but it is a political issue more than an economic one that individuals are sometimes deported.
    I always try to seperate the subjects in my discussions
    but sometimes fail to do so unavoidably.

    BORDER controls are a neccessary evil between countries that I hope will one day be a lesser evil….as per the EUROPEAN idea….
    I SUPPORT THE IDEA 100 % but its time scale must also be monitored.

    It is not an overnight decision but a gradual integration of the peoples of our beautiful planet …my vision…

    as per BOB MARLEY s “one world one love” song comes to mind.
    a legend of a man
