UK’s Home Office Accidentally Tells British Citizens to “Get Out”

The UK Border Agency has sent what are thought to be hundreds of intimidating text messages to British Citizens threatening them with deportation.

Home Office immigration texts

The has come to light after a British man of a South Asian background was sent a message ”from the UK Border Agency” which told him:

“You are required to leave the UK as you no longer have right to remain.”

Unfortunately for Theresa May’s Home Office — who run the Border Agency — and their contractor Capita, this morning’s Guardian diary reports that the message in question was sent to Suresh Grover, who founded an anti-racism charity. The messages are apparently intended for foreign nationals such as over-stayers, but with at least 200 formal complaints over the texts, the number of messages sent in error to British Citizens is thought to be much higher.

First the racist van — now the Home Office tell British Citizens to “get out”.
