When, and more importantly, how is dependant on the situation.By definition these are "get up and go people". Providing a conduit to allow this type of person to be removed from a population, biases the remaining skills and abilities. In fact, permanently removing the next generation of leaders and organisers, ensures that the country will always be weak and vulnerable. This is a dictators dream.I was in an African country under threat from its neighbour, it had to impose strict punishments for attempting to leave. The people I spoke to knew that the liberal asylum laws in UK etc. would destroy them as quickly as the bombs and missiles aimed at them.

Why is this a good policy? Because it allows lawyers to make money from the taxpayer. Money that would have kept the asylum seeker living safely in Britain for several years. Making lawers rich is what out justice system is for. Max Moseley 60,000 GBP. Lawyers 884,000 GBP.Now, if we shipped out out the lawyers to Darfur that would be a result.

The one still used by BBC World is way better, as they haven't "fixed" something that was not broken! No listening again 2 hours after the PM show today as "the audio stream is not available at this time". Never happened with the lately "old" player! By the time I might hear the show, I probably won't care. I do believe that I'll quit the bleeding daily email also, as it is bleeding useless. Cheers.

Let them work at whatever needs doing for minimum wage for five years. If after that time they've proved to be useful, law-abiding people, make them full citizens, otherwise deport them regardless.We could also do this to young ne'er-do-wells born here. ;o) Fri 25 Jul 2008 16:37:14 GMT+1 nikki noodle http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2008/07/darfur.shtml?page=0#comment0 The future of the three states of the Darfur Region of Sudan to the west, is not unconnected to the history of civil war between the Southern States and Khartoum.I met one of the south's negotiators fifteen years ago, who had then been involved with setting talks in progress for two decades.There is expected to be a referenum on the future of the South in the next few years.It may be that, until that time, the least worst solution would be not to pass/fail asylum seekers - but rather to offer temporary asylum status to Darfuris.
