After living and working in Britain for the last 30 years, former Kent and Worcestershire fast bowler Hartley Alleyne was ordered deported to his native Barbados last year. He appealed the decision and has just been granted a deportation review.
No guarantee that he can stay in Britain – only a review.
Frankly, on hearing stories like this I think “What’s the use of being associated with Britain any longer?”
On some days, I could support a the concept of Barbados as a fully independent republic…
… except, of course, if the current lot of crooks get to define, establish and administer said republic.
I’ll remain a reluctant “small m” monarchist for now.
