A man whose wife died as a result of an NHS blunder has lost his right to remain in Britain, in what a coroner described yesterday as an "extraordinary" decision.GREAT BRITAIN'S NHS IS HELD PUT AS A PARADIGM OF EXCELLENCE. IT SUCKS. AND THE BUREAUCRATS OF THE NHS AND THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT ARE JUST AS BAD AS BUREAUCRATS EVERYWHERE: THEY SUCK.
Arnel Cabrera, 39, came to Britain from the Philippines in 2003 to join his wife, Mayra, a theatre nurse, who worked at the Great Western Hospital in Swindon.
But a year later, Mrs Cabrera died at the same hospital after she was given an epidural during the birth of the couple's child which was mistakenly injected into her arm. The baby survived.
An inquest returned a verdict of unlawful killing and found the NHS trust had been guilty of gross negligence. Now the Home Office has told Mr Cabrera he has failed in his bid to remain in the UK.
David Masters, the Wiltshire coroner who presided over the inquest, said yesterday: "This is extraordinary. In view of the verdict reached at the inquest I find it difficult to appreciate how the Home Office has reached this decision."
In its letter of refusal, the Home Office said Mr Cabrera had "not established a family life with his son in the United Kingdom". It added: "As his son remains in the Philippines there are no insurmountable obstacles to his family life being continued overseas."
THIS IS WHY WE WANT TO HAVE THE SMALLEST GOVERNMENT POSSIBLE: GOVERNMENT SUCKS.
