The Immigration Farce


The Immigration Farce

Michael Ogundimo

 I am not sure whether he intended to or not but Olufisayo Ogundimo may have helped to make legal history. 

He has just won an appeal against deportation in front of my old friend Sir Nicholas Blake, President of the Upper Chamber of the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal.  An able advocate before he became a judge His Lordship once appeared in front of me, on the old Immigration Appeal Tribunal.

Mr. Ogundimo is a convicted Nigerian narcotic trafficker, and is anxious not to be sent back to Nigeria.  After notice of the Home Office intent to deport him he decided to have another child, or maybe that just happened accidentally.

Either way he successfully used Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights to overturn the deportation decision.

This has upset the Home Secretary, a rather silly woman, with respect, named Theresa May.  Aware of the political damage the Coalition Government’s failure to control immigration was causing she got the House of Commons to approve a fatuous change in the Immigration Rules.  She claimed this would curtail the impact of the right to family life in Article 8.

Mr. Ogundimo and Mr. Justice Blake have now exposed that claim for the hollow sham it was.  I am not by the way criticising the learned judge’s decision.  He was quite right to give priority to Article 8.  That is because it has statutory force, thanks to the daft Human Rights Act 1998.  A statute trumps an immigration rule any day.  I would probably have been forced to give the same decision, although I might with respect have used different language.

The only way round the problem is to repeal the Human Rights Act 1998.  That the Coalition will not do.  It is a sacred cow for the Liberal Democrats and a repeal bill would break up the Coalition.  David Cameron is also pro-EU and he won’t get rid of it either.  The ECHR is a Council of Europe instrument but it is linked to the EU, both by treaty amendments and in intelligence terms.  The ECHR and Treaty of Rome were drafted by agents of the same agency, the DVD.  For the UK to pull out of the ECHR and scrap the Human Rights Act would be a significant political statement.  It would send a signal that we are on our way out of Europe.

Mr. Ogundimo’s successful attempt to impose himself on the UK against the wishes of the House of Commons is bound to increase the political pressure on Cameron and the Coalition.  Cameron is headed for a heavy defeat in this week’s crucial by-election at Eastleigh in Hampshire, caused by the conviction of former Lib Dem Cabinet Minister Chris Huhne for perverting the course of justice.  We Tories are in a desperate competition with the United Kingdom Independence Party for 2nd place.

My guess is that Cameron will be forced out by the end of May.  The Coalition will break up and there will be a General Election.  The new Tory leader will be a Eurosceptic, committed to withdrawal from the EU.  He or she will have to be, in order to end the split on the right.  The Eastleigh by-election is proof of the damage that split is doing.  A once safe Tory seat cannot be won because of the number of voters switching to UKIP, even in a seat where the sitting MP was convicted of being a perverter and is looking at some jail time.

Eastleigh has been in the headlines before by the way.  Its last Tory MP was found dead in the middle of a sex game with another politician, although the other guy’s role was hushed up.  GO2, the German operation in London, used his involvement to blackmail him, forcing him to support EU membership. GO2 has assets in Special Branch, who were involved in the clean-up.  It’s usual procedure to call them in when one MP hangs another in the middle of a sex game.

Mr. Ogundimo can take pride in the role he has played in helping to bring down the Coalition Government and getting the Human Rights Act repealed.  Unfortunately for him that will remove the last remaining barrier to his deportation, although the new government may be sufficiently grateful to send him home business class.


Author Details
Michael Shrimpton is a barrister, currently suspended of course, called to the Bar in London in 1983. He is a specialist in National Security and Constitutional Law, Strategic Intelligence and Counterterrorism. He has wide ranging connections both in Western Intelligence agencies and amongst ex-Soviet Bloc agencies. The late Generaloberst Markus Wolf, of the Stasi and DVD, was one of his contacts. Michael has earned respect in the intelligence community for his analysis of previously unacknowledged post-WWII covert operations against the West by the German DVD organization based in Dachau, near Munich, Germany, and its British, French and American client agencies. These continue to the present day, as politicians and the media are too nervous of standing up to them.

Michael was formerly an Adjunct Professor of Intelligence Studies in the Department of National Security, Intelligence and Space Studies at the American Military University, teaching intelligence subjects at Masters level to inter alia serving intelligence officers. He has represented US and Israeli intelligence officers in law and briefed in staffers on the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Joint Congressional Inquiry into 9-11. In the wake of that murderous attack he addressed panels on terrorism in Washington DC and Los Angeles organized by the respected Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs. Fellow panelists included a former head of Special Operations Command and a former Commander of the US Atlantic Fleet.

Michael’s active assistance to Intelligence and Law Enforcement agencies in the Global War on Terror produced some notable successes, including the exposure of the Abu Ghraib ‘hood’ photograph as a fake. His work on strategic intelligence took him to the Pentagon and he has also met with senior advisors to the President of the Russian Federation, in Moscow, in November 2005. He participated in the Global Strategic Review conference in Geneva in 2005 and was a speaker at both the Intelligence Conference (Intelcon) in 2005, and the Intelligence Summit in 2006, each at Crystal City.

In 2006 he was flown out to, and flew off from, the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65), as part of the US Navy’s Distinguished Visitor Program. She was then working up her air group off the Eastern Seaboard of the United States, before operational deployment to the Persian Gulf. It is comparatively unusual for a foreign civilian to complete a carrier landing and launch cycle.

Michael’s ground-breaking, 700 page intelligence text “Spyhunter: The Secret History of German Intelligence” was published in England by June Press in April 2014. It features on a number of intelligence syllabuses, as does intelligence analysis prepared by Michael, e.g. on the brutal 2003 assassination of British weapons scientist Dr David Kelly CMG.

In their unlawful raid on Michael’s home in Wendover, Buckinghamshire in April 2012 Thames Valley Police officers seized the manuscript of Spyhunter and all of Michael’s onshore backups. Publication was only possible because the draft had been backed up offshore. The police hung onto the seized copies long after it was decided not to use them as evidence.

In November 2014 Michael was convicted at Southwark Crown Court by a tampered-with jury panel on two bogus bomb-hoax charges. Prior to bringing in the police the British Ministry of Defence, after consulting with the Cabinet Office, destroyed their recordings of Michael’s initial contact and qualified intelligence briefing re a DVD operation to target the Opening Ceremony of the 2012 Olympics using a stolen Russian SS-N-19 warhead.

Happily the NSA intercepted both Michael’s call to MOD and their call to him (on a number he had provided) and the intercepts are now in the hands of MI5.

As Michael’s distinguished Veterans Today colleagues Gordon Duff and Ben Fulford have confirmed on this website, his intelligence briefing to MOD was substantially correct and two warheads, both off an SS-19, were recovered by the US. After inspection the Department of Energy estimated their yield at 20KT.
