There are human rights. And there are EU human rights. And never the twain shall meet.

A Bangladeshi immigrant who stabbed her baby with a kitchen knife has won the right to stay in Britain so that she can have contact with the child.

The Home Office sought to deport her when she completed her jail sentence, though by that time the family courts had given her the right to see her daughter under supervision. She had claimed that deportation would breach her right to family life under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights. The Home Office’s appeal against the decision was unsuccessful.

The woman, who cannot be named, arrived in Britain in September 2007 after marrying her cousin in an arranged marriage the year before. She spoke no English and had never been to Britain before but joined him in a flat in Tower Hamlets, East London. Their daughter was born in June 2008.

Let’s see. 1. Muslim 2. Arranged marriage 3. Tower Hamlets 4. Crime 5. Unable to deport. Yup. Everything on the checklist is checked.

At what point does a parent lose the right to a family life under the EU Convention? Seizing children from homeschooling families is fine. But a woman who stabs a baby has the right to maintain contact.

Her husband left her alone with the child and came back to discover her stabbing the girl in the stomach. He grabbed the child and his wife was overpowered by his brother. The Old Bailey was told that the woman left a 1½in stab wound on the child’s body and that she would have died if the thrust had not caught one of her ribs.

The judge accepted that the woman was in “emotional turmoil” and jailed her for five years. In July 2011, while still in prison, she was granted access to her daughter by the family courts.

And as long as the UK stays in the EU, this insanity will continue.

    The U.K. is traveling further down the road towards dhimmitude…

    She had claimed that deportation would breach her right to family life under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.

    Muslims only use Infidel rules and laws when it is convenient to do so…she should have been deported on the same day as her release from jail…

      England is in deep decline. Their ultra leftist immigration policies and idiotic PC rules are destroying a once great nation.

    Well if they stab each other enough isn’t that a self correcting problem in the longer run?
