Hard to imagine you might come (legally) at eight years old to live in a country (UK), then years later be put on a plane back to the country you left as a child, classified as an illegal immigrant, but that's what happened in Great Britain!

The Windrush scandal TV drama: 'People will be up in arms when they see this'

A new BBC film, Sitting in Limbo, recounts the story of Anthony Bryan, who was sacked, arrested, detained and threatened with deportation, before the government apologised. The reporter who broke the original story talks to his family and friends about the years of misery they endured.

I am the son of an immigrant. I was born here in the UK so I am properlyy British. 

When the Windrush generation arrived we were an overtly racist population. It seems that is not in the past tense after all.
