…between shit and syphilis.
I really don’t know why criminal run to the media to bleat about how hard done by they are, and I really don’t know why the media cuddle up to them.
Take the case of this stabby woman being deported from Australia for her crimes and how upset she is she won’t be able to see her kids.
More than 4000 kilometres from her children and with no idea when she will see them again, Kelly Bradnam sits in limbo.
The mother of five, who moved to Australia from Christchurch as a 16-year-old and is now 43, has spent more than three months detained at the Yongah Hill Detention Centre near Perth.
Before being sent to jail on a charge of unlawful wounding, Bradnam lived in Brisbane with her children, three under 18, and extended family.
Kelly Bradnam with her family, who were all born in Australia. Bradnam is facing deportation back to New Zealand after spending time in an Australian prison.
She served 10 months of her three-year sentence, before being released on parole. She breached her conditions after being caught drinking alcohol, and was sent back to jail to serve a further sanction period.
But four days before her release date earlier this year, she was told she would be sent to the Perth detention centre and likely deported back to New Zealand.
Bradnam is one of scores of Kiwis caught by a December amendment to the Australian Migration Act that will make it more likely non-citizens will have their visas cancelled if they are sentenced to jail for 12 months or more, or found guilty of child sex offences.
Figures provided by the Australian Department of Immigration and Border Protection reveal that since the law change, 175 New Zealanders’ visas had been cancelled. Of those, 35 had been sent back home.
Out of the 175 Kiwi scumbags being deported they pick this stabby tart as their poster girl?
No sympathy for her, about the only place other than the Sunday Star-Times that she will find it is in the dictionary between shit and syphilis.
