This disgusts me.

"A teenager who fears being subjected to female circumcision if she is returned to Sierra Leone has failed in a legal bid to seek sanctuary in the UK.

Zainab Fornah, 17, was refused asylum in 2003 and the Court of Appeal in London backed the decision on Thursday. Asylum seekers must come from a social group fearing persecution, but it was decided women facing genital mutilation did not fall into this category."

When we said we wanted you to cut down on immigration Tony, we didn't mean that you should start sending genuine people back to the fucking slaughterhouse. I am so deeply and thoroughly ashamed and outraged and at a complete loss as to what to do. The system, once again, lets down another kid.
