Sorry your wife's dead - oh, and you're deported
First up, a bunch of incompetent, disorganised fkwits in Swindon somewhere kill a woman by putting an epidural anaesthetic straight into her blood stream (it's a local anaesthetic for Christ's sake, it would have shut the nervous system down), and lie to the widower before being forced to tell the truth. They kept it - in it's ordinary, unremarkable packaging - right next to the regular saline.
Now it turns out that the husband was here on his wife's work visa (she was a nurse) and the widower and new baby are being deported back to the Philippines at the end of the month.
Uprooting these people now they are settled and at this appalling time is not the action of a civilised society. The Coroner has appealed for leniency. I hope it's given. At least I hope he's here to see justice done in the ciminal courts.
