I was not sure whether this was one for the Cricket Gyaff or Politics News - perhaps it matters not, the story remains the same ...

"As a schoolboy in Jamaica, Richard Stewart was told he was British because Britain was the Mother Country. Now, 60 years later, after a life lived in England, including a spell playing county cricket for Middlesex, Stewart is fighting against the system and fearing for his future in Britain. Like so many others caught up in the Windrush scandal, Stewart does not have the necessary paperwork to prove his right to live in the United Kingdom. He has not left the country since 1969 and worries that if he were to return to visit family in Jamaica, he would not be allowed back in the country where he has lived since the age of 10. His case is being dealt with by the Commonwealth Taskforce set up by the Prime Minister at the height of the Windrush scandal and which promised to give him help within two weeks. Months later, Stewart has heard nothing."

So, nothing has changed, then? We're still living in a "hostile environment".
