A Mrs. Poshteh arrived in this country as a refugee claiming she had been tortured and imprisoned by the Iranian government.
Maybe she was; maybe she wasn't.
However, that's not really the story.
She decided that the only place she could live was the salubrious Royal Borough and hounded the Council into finding her accommodation.
|NORLAND RD NOT POSH ENOUGH!|
The Council refused, quite rightly, to back down and Mrs. Posheh wasted tens of thousands of pounds of our money fighting the Council all the way up to Supreme and European Court of Human Rights.
Rightly, both Courts rejected her stupid claim.
The Dame thinks of the Ugandan Asians who arrived here penniless.
All left substantial businesses behind in Uganda.
Most had just the clothes they stood up in.
Most are now part of the business and professional fabric of the UK.
They would have been ashamed to have behaved in the way Mrs. Poshteh has.
