My question to the leaders' debate
On Wednesday Anselme Noumbiwa was deported back to a country he fled from, fearing for his life after being tortured by his local tribe. In 2008 Jacqui Smith claimed it was safe to send gay Iranian asylum seekers back to a country that would kill them for their sexuality because they could "be discreet". Under the veneer of tempering anti-immigration feeling in this country, what will you do to better protect legitimate asylum seekers from being sent back to their worst nightmare?
