Goodbye to our D-Day Veteran :(



Sorry for lack of posts updating the HMRC sham but we've just lost a family member who was very dear to us. He was at D-DAY, 6th June 1944 from day 1. He was a giant of a man and l'm not talking about him being over 6ft. He had integrity, morals and lived to a code of honour that included compassion. He would and did help anyone.

l took him back to Normandy once for the 65th anniversary of D-Day and it remains a wonderful memory. Him and his comrades were a pleasure to be with ... and entertaining too. They all loved to have a pint, smoke and chew the fat. They're all gone now.

As a measure of the man, there is one incident that sticks in my mind. We all have silly fears about something or other whether it be spiders, snakes etc. His was dogs but when he saw a dog drowning in a dock .... he jumped in and saved it!

l could and should write more but can't do it now.

He'll have a full military funeral and deservedly so. l'm going to miss him each and everyday!

Goodbye warrior!

"In the eyes of the Tribunal the review letter contained several preconceptions, prejudgments and non-sequiturs"

"the absurdity of this reason is demonstrated by simply stating it"

"We therefore find that Mr Sked misdirected himself as to the Policy in carrying out the review and his decision is therefore one that no reasonable review officer could have arrived at."

... commonly known here at N2D as 'Skeds' ... that is to say these are Judges comments regarding UKBA Review Officer Ian Sked's reasons for rejecting peoples appeals against seizures.
