Hamad’s fast track to Eldorado: Sudanese migrant who was in Italy five weeks ago is now in UK – family to follow

A Sudanese migrant rescued by the Royal Navy in the Mediterranean Sea and dropped off in Italy just five weeks ago has already made it to Britain.

Hamad Said, 22, was given free passage on trains across Italy, France and all the way to Calais, where he jumped on a lorry to England.

His journey of more than 2,000 miles from Sicily to Birmingham cost him just €76 — around £53 — as the French and Italian authorities simply waved him through.

    I’ve got an idea for a new reality show (we need more of them; they’re great!) along the lines of Race Across the World, only this one starts in Africa …

    Ah, the benefits of being a member of the EU never cease.

      I wonder if he’ll get reimbursed the £53 on his first welfare cheque or if he has to file for travel expenses?

    Hopefully, Hamad will stay in the UK.
    At least, until Harper is defeated.
    Then he can come to Canada and bleed us dry.
