CRIME: They should have returned home first

Re: “Robbers put behind bars for ten years” (Spalding Guardian, January 30).

Well down on their luck, sleeping rough, jobless, and drugs – how low can one get?

Well there’s hundreds of thousands of British people who are down on their lucktoo. These men should have gone back to their home land before they found themselves homeless, jobless, in debt and on drugs – that’s about as low as one can get.
