Tactically Irrelevant, But Strategically Important

One thing that's being missed in coverage of the Learco Chindamo case has been the precedent set by the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal. Yes, as an EU citizen, this pond life can't be exported anyway, but now our friends on the Left has established as a legal principle that even non-EU murderers can't be deported, if only they've had the nous to bring their family over with them. Again, to return to a point I made earlier, in so far as the Left opposes deporting even murderers, in what sense do we not have a de facto open borders policy ?
