    (i) the person is suspected of committing a crime that carries a prison sentence in the foreign country of more than one year.
    I feel there's a flaw here - what of crimes which are recognised in certain countries but not in our own? For example, Iran criminalises homosexuality, drinking alcohol, and leaving Islam - all of which are punishable by death.

    Until this legislation clarifies such matters further, I can't vote in favour of it.

    I guess next election other parties can justifiably claim that UKIP submitted a bill to disqualify non-British citizens from being in the human race.
