    I personally cannot stand Kishwar Desai, if I have her name correctly. She is arrogant, over opinionated, and considers that her opinions are absolutely correct.
    With regard to alien criminals she is totally wrong, surely the meanest of intelligence can see that it is not right to keep convicted foreigners here at taxpayers expense. They should be returned to their country of origin, and of course they have lost themselves any right to "human rights". Rights have to be earned, and equally can e lost, and convicted criminals have indeed lost their rights to anything.
    "Human rights" have become an industry to keep wrongdoers in the UK.
    And, whilst on the subject, what happened to the human rights of the Dowler family??

    She is wrong about the fact that we have to retain immigrants in this country and in particular ones who are violent criminals and like the African torturers who cannot be returned to Africa. The UK is not Africa's nearers country. It just is the one with the free bank and free lawyers for immigrants.

    I believe she is entitled to her opinion, there is a difference between immigrant and refugee for starters, If immigrants come here under Licence and work Visa`s for example, these could be employments can be terminated when no longer required.
    And no loss of face to Uk justice and quality of life.

    An interesting opinion, however if criminals are deported will they serve a prison sentence in their home country or go free? If we send convicts home and they are freed then there is a strong incentive for foreign criminals to come here because they would then escape punishment if caught. Lock them up punish them and show that we will not tolerate their behavior here.

    Presumably you mean "for destitute asylum seekers"?

    to Melbury75 - I believe you're missing the point..the panel is always comprised of individuals with opinions. Nick certainly had some strong opinions and mostly arrogantly interrupted other panelists at every opportunity! Lady Kishwar Desai remained dignified while putting her opinions and views across eloquently and graciously. Perhaps you are uncomfortable that a person of colour should have the ability to do this. I wonder how you "personally" feel about the opinions and views of Yasmin Alibhai-Brown! Given that the rest of the "tone" of your opinion leaves me in little doubt of your particular prejudices and ultimately that of the general public... "return them to the country of their origin" evocative of a BNP slogan, I would say people like you who conveniently use the current debate, use it as nothing more than another form of covert racism.
