Singer allowed back in Britain for Tolpuddle Festival
Thursday 14 July 2011
Singer Maureen Lum will join this weekend’s major Tolpuddle Martyrs’ Festival after all despite her “shameful” deportation to Australia 10 days ago.
However, she has now travelled all the way back to Britain after being forced to obtain the required piece of paper and rebook her flight.
Labour MPs condemned her deportation yesterday as a “shameful incident.”
A group of 26 MPs led by Tony Lloyd put down a Commons early day motion slamming “ridiculous” rules which require amateur performers to have a formal entertainment visa to enter Britain.
South West TUC regional secretary Nigel Crossley said: “This sorry saga demonstrates how harsh and brutal this country seems to be becoming.
“It could be blamed on ridiculous red tape, but seems to me to be part of a co-ordinated government policy to make Britain a less welcoming place.”
Festival organisers are expecting a bumper turnout this year.
The need to revive the Tolpuddle Martyrs’ spirit to fight against today’s wage race to the bottom is continually implied in Neil Gore’s We Will Be Free! Here.
