Mind boggling

I’m glad that Lloyd Bogle’s ‘plight’ has ended. He now has a visa to return to his ‘home’ in England. The Jamaican, who went to England as a boy, came back to ‘visit’ Jamaica and was ‘stranded’ here. It’s utterly bizarre that the media could use such terms and seemingly not bat an eyelid.


It’s a bizarre aspect of our love of migrating from our homeland that we should not think it odd that a countryman returning to the country of his birth can find himself distressed to be unable get ‘back home’ abroad.
