British immigration authorities, who not only refuse to eject muslim terrorists, but pay them hundreds of thousands of £ to support them and their families while they preach hatred, move to deport American Shakespeare scholar because his student visa expired.

A US academic who has been working on preparations to mark the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death in Britain is being held in an immigration cell and faces deportation after his student visa expired.

Paul Hamilton was taken to immigration removal centre 100 miles away from his home after police swooped on the property in Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, and arrested him for being an illegal immigrant.

The 42-year-old scholar, who has spent nine years in the UK and received his PhD from the University of Birmingham in July, had applied for leave to remain in the UK and says he was waiting to hear the outcome from the Home Office.

He also had an open ticket to return to Phoenix in Arizona, something which he says showed his willingness to leave the UK if required.

But, despite allegedly being given no instruction to return to the UK, Mr Hamilton was unexpectedly arrested earlier this month.

He has now spent ten days locked away at the centre, awaiting a court date.

Some 150 of Dr Hamilton’s friends, who say he has contributed £100,000 to the UK economy in tuition fees during his nine-year stay in Britain, have now signalled their support after PhD student Timo Uotinen launched a campaign to help him.

Among those who have signed their support are Professor Michael Dobson, director of the Shakespeare Institute, John Gillies, professor in literature at the University of Essex and Dr Patricia McManus, senior lecturer in media and literature at the University of Brighton.

    None of this is surprising in the land of PHONY Conservative David Cameron. What a complete nincompoop he is. Winnie and Maggie must spin in their graves that he was elected AND re-elected as a Tory.

    Just what we all need, another Shakespearean scholar!! Did it take him 9 years to get his PhD? I read this earlier and one of the comments on the article was spot on when he said that if this guy had come through the Chunnel with the rest of the rapefugees he would have got a visa, an apartment and a weekly stipend.

    This reminds me a bit of the undercover people who were hit with felony charges for the Planned Parenthood videos. Use fake drivers’ licenses and pretend to wish to purchase fetal tissue for exposing such practices at PP? Felony!

    Take highly sensitive, life threatening data as Secretary of State, and put it on an unprotected server? YAWN….
    The world is turned upside down.

    Dude –
    Didn’t Shakespeare write “Death by a Thousand Cuts”? If not, he should have. You doth know to what i refereth?

    Anyhows, Shakespeare did, as you know, write “Romeo & Juliet”. Do you HAVE ANY IDEA how many modern day movies ripped that off? A SHIT TON!! Is that more or less than a metric shit ton?

    But I digresseth. “Beauty and The Beast” and “Phantom of the Opera” are both rip offs of R&J. And POTO & BATB are IDENTICAL!! Just a beast vs. a crazy disfigured guy. SAME STORY!! “West Side Story”, “A Love Story”, “Butch Cassidy and the Sun Dance Kid” and “Deep Throat” are ALL BASED ON R&J. It’s TRUE!!

    VERILY, IN FACT!! Most modern stories are rip offs of Shakespeare stories. So the guy had foresight. You musteth give him thatith. He even gave himself a porn star name! Before porno flicks were even invented!! Although even back then, the theater types were promiscuous liberals, so I am sure they had some pretty good orgies.

    Your Pal,
    PS – Do you have any contacts in Newquay? I was wondering where I left my doll. He name is Mona, and I really would like her back.
