There seems to be a kind of insanity that has overtaken much of the British political and media elite class. Was it because Tolga Binbuga was a Turkish Muslim that Judge Evan Ruth came to the ridiculous and quite spectacularly insane conclusion that “the likely association of Binbuga with this north London gang is a good example of his integration into one of the less savoury aspects of UK life”? Was Ruth afraid of appearing “Islamophobic” if he ordered this serial criminal deported? Was he afraid that this deportation would provoked a violent response from Britain’s Muslim community? Or is Evan Ruth’s head so filled with nonsense about “diversity” and “multiculturalism” that he can no longer do anything close to thinking straight?
“Turkish criminal is allowed to stay in the UK after judge rules his GANG membership shows he is ‘socially and culturally integrated’ in Britain,” by Chris Dyer, Mailonline, April 9, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A Turkish national convicted of a string of offences was allowed to stay in the UK after a judge ruled his gang membership showed he was ‘socially and culturally integrated’.
Tolga Binbuga was convicted of a string of offences including robbery, burglary, assault and a criminal damage.
He was also jailed for a year after pleading guilty to burglary in 2013 after he stole a Mercedes car key along with £3,000 worth of electrical goods from a house in Enfield, north London.
The 29-year-old came to Britain when he was nine and never applied for UK citizenship.
Binbuga was also convicted of cautioned for drug possession and shoplifting.
He joined the north London-based Get Money Gang which the Met Police say are the second most dangerous groups in the country.
When the Home Office tried to deport Binbuga his lawyers appealed saying he was a ‘home grown criminal’, according to the Sun.
In 2016 Judge Evan Ruth ruled Binbuga’s gang affiliation proved he had ‘socially and culturally integrated’ into British culture and he was allowed to stay in the UK, the newspaper reports.
Judge Ruth said: ‘It is a sad and unpleasant fact of life that, in various parts of London, gang culture is an accepted and widespread part of life for many young people.
‘In my view, although it is a sad and unpleasant conclusion, the likely association of Binbuga with this north London gang is a good example of his integration into one of the less savoury aspects of UK life.’
That decision was overturned by the Home Office under appeal in 2017 with judges finding Judge Ruth had ‘erred in law’ by stating that gang membership showed a level of socially integration.
Judges ruled there was no compelling reason to prevent Binbuga’s deportation.
The ruling stated: ‘Membership of a pro-criminal gang shows a lack of such acceptance [of cultural integration]. It demonstrates disdain for the rule of law.’…
