An illegal immigrant in the UK is demanding to be flown back to his native country of Algeria at Britain’s expense because the British are too rude:
An illegal immigrant has demanded to be flown home after saying he was fed up with British people – because they are “rude and unfriendly”.
Speaking today, Mokhtar Tabet, 30 – who has been given a home, food and free travel around London – claims his local council has breached his human rights by moving him to a place he does not like.
He was refused asylum in 2004 and is set to be deported.
He said: “The council evicted me from my home in September and moved me to Streatham, which I don’t like.
“The new place is small, and the kitchen closes at 9pm, so I can’t have anything to eat late at night. They have taken away my human rights.”
Croydon Council says it has bent over backwards to help Tabet, who fled Algeria in 2002.
In reality, it’s not that the British are rude and unfriendly to Mr. Tabet; it’s that he obviously has an overactive entitlement mentality that not even the Brits are willing to totally appease:
A spokesman said: “Mr Tabet was accommodated in Norbury Crescent, with Croydon Council paying his rent, council tax and utility bills.
“In July, his landlord gave him two months’ notice to quit the premises, and the council offered him a flat in Anerley Road, which he refused citing its poor state of repair.
“The necessary repairs were carried out and he again refused it.
“He was told that refusal would amount to him making himself intentionally homeless and he would be placed in hostel-style accommodation. He agreed to this.”
Mr Tabet is entitled to return to Algeria at his own expense and admits that he “does not like it here”.
But he refuses to do so and says Britain will have to pay for his travel if it wants him to leave.
He moaned: “I miss Algeria. The English people are not helpful, they are so unfriendly and rude.
“I thought I had made friends in Croydon, but when I ask them for money they don’t give me it, so I know they can’t be my friends.”
What a total freeloader. Mr. Tabet goes to Britain illegally to begin with and, once there, realizes he doesn’t like it and demands that the British government fly him home at taxpayers’ expense. On top of that, he sees friendship as nothing more than a means to financial support. Will this guy’s family in Algeria want him back?
Update: David Vance at JammieWearingFool has more on why Mr. Tabet went to the UK in the first place:
Now it’s worth enquiring as to why Mokhtar came to the UK. Turns out he left Algeria in 2002 after being arrested for refusing to give up his home so the army could monitor terrorist activity in his town. He needed to find a country where terrorist activity was not monitored so closely so naturally the UK came to mind so over he came!
