messageMalian migrant who climbed four storeys to save a child gets citizenship and job
Posted by Robert Poste's Child 28 May, 2018 14:19

I just loved, loved, loved this news story.

[www.dailymail.co.uk]

It made me wonder, does the UK have a fast track for migrants who demonstrate outstanding citizenship, courage, loyalty or otherwise exemplify UK values - so not just the wealthy or those who have a job lined up? I think it would be a fantastic way to reward people who deserve it, model good citizenship and create new role models.

What does anyone else think? It's got 'Harry & Meghan' written all over it.

Glad you've learned the error of your ways, RH.

Flockerspotter, have you ever said anything kind or supportive on this forum? I only ever seem to see digs which looks like you're trying to stir things up. Maybe I'm wrong.

Amazing video and brilliant outcome for all concerned - apart from the father who is in a wee bit of bother for leaving a toddler home alone.

I can't understand how the child clung on for so long.

Brilliant outcome, as Ilona says, and I hope the child's father is suitably punished.

ETA: Don't think he was a toddler, apparently he was four. Child not father, obvs.

Have to say as someone who can be to the right of Genghis Khan, certainly Kubla Khan anyway that this is a fantastic story and has gone viral and the great news is he is assured of a place in the Country and has secured a job as a Fireman so well done Mamoudou Gassama smiling smiley

What are UK values? In this age of Brexit I just see a whole lot selfishness and idiocy.

We don't have any in the same way as one of the Countries in The UK...that pesky England do not have any Culture to call theor own and preserve.

Which is a shame because almost every other Nation on earth does have a Culture...

We'd have given the guy an MBE then Theresa May would have accidentally repatriated him to the wrong country.

I've no idea either but I believe they're in the citizenship test. Queuing must be in there, and saying yes, thank you, the food's lovely, when the waiter asks then complaining about it all night.

A lot of the 'facts' being tested in the citizenship test have been found to be erroneous!! Maybe that's the basis of the British values we're all searching for ...

Personally, it really drives me up the wall to hear politicians trying to adopt a British version of the American Dream.

I feel dirty, I opened the link. I am now tainted.

Not that it wasn't heroic. I could have done without the side bars of scantily dressed young ladies/women/females/XYs

With all the negative press about illegal immigrants which reduce them to something less than human, it's a great story of a real human being who is a real hero. Makes me think that many, if not most, of the people who risk life and limb to get "somewhere" other than where they currently live, deserve more than hostility, and certainly more than many, if not most people, who come to their natural citizenship because they were born to the manor.

I guess some immigrants are good, and some are not. You know... just like the rest of us!
