Iranian migrant ‘fed up’ of Manchester demands return

A man has been arrested after telling police he has “had enough” of Manchester and has demanded to be returned to Iran.

The migrant described as “very angry” walked into a police station on Monday and made the claims after a decade in the city, police said.

    Grant him his wish.

    Real Brits don’t exactly have a choice, now do they?

    Another angry failed supremacist. Not sure this reflects well on Manchester though: “The City so Bad even the Totalitarians want to Leave”.

    Dude probably wants a free ride home and will come back later.

    Before the border tightened up somewhat, Mexicans used to turn themselves in before Christmas to be deported back home in time for the holidays. Not permanent.

      I strongly suspect you are right.

    Manchester has gone downhill since BBC moved a few thousand staff to Salford Quays.

    WTF alert:

    “The man was later de-arrested”

    How do you de-arrest someone? Do they have a secret time machine?

  • And the problem is….?

      I wondered about this at first too.
      In England you do need a passport to legally leave, as well as “permission” from the UK government (usually a perfunctory measure provided by their passport control while you are on the way out).
      Maybe it’s the same in Canada, but here in the States, you literally can walk through an uncontrolled one-way turnstile gate and be in Mexico with no challenge from anyone, even the Mexicans.

      It’s possible that he’s lacking one or both of those, or he’s just a flaming idiot that wants a free ticket.
      In any event, they need to get rid of him.
