Let Trenton Oldfield stay in Britain

I happened to be at home when Trenton Oldfield staged his protest at last year's Boat Race, so I was able to share Lord Bonkers' thoughts on the matter with my readers.

Because so many people were googling his name that afternoon, that post rapidly became one of the most-read ones this blog has ever had. And after that no one read it because Oldfield had been deservedly forgotten.

But the Home Office has not forgotten him and, after serving two months in Wormwood Scrubs, he has been ordered to leave the country.

It his hard to disagree with Oldfield's words:
"It feels to me that this is a very vindictive decision, very political and very much an overreaction."
He should be allowed to stay.
