Paying up yet again?

The authorities should protect anyone living here from violent attacks but I find it disturbing to read that we taxpayers may be facing yet another bill:
THE Home Office could face a multi-million-pound compensation bill after an asylum-seeker launched a landmark court case, claiming a decision to force him to stay in Glasgow breached his human rights.
This family is being allowed to live in Britain at taxpayers' expense. There are plenty of poor British citizens who would like to move to parts of the country where crime levels are perceived to be lower. I don't think there's much chance of any of them winning a "multi-million-pound compensation" should they fail to get the government to pay for a move.
