First of all, well done Charlie Skinner. A family man who, single handedly, apprehended a drug dealer who had set up business in the house next door to him. The dealer has been sentenced to six years but, it turns out, he's an ilegal imigrant who has been on police bail since November last year, having been found in posession of another stash of drugs. So he's been plying his trade and ruining people's lives for the last seven months, (and who knows how long before that,) when he should have been on the first plane out of here when first arrested, and sent back to whence he came. What fate would have awaited him there? Don't know, don't care. Instead, we, the law abiding tax payers of this country, have first had to pay for his trial and now his food and keep for the next six years. With the economic climate in this country being the way it is, I think someone at the Treasury should sit down and compare the cost of all of that against the price of an air ticket.
