Get over it, lady!

She should be sent back to Pakistan from the UK asap.
A 7ft 2ins Pakistani woman is to live in Britain on benefits after claiming asylum because she is 'too tall' to return home.

Zainab Bibi, 33, claims she faces constant persecution and ridicule in her own country over her height. She has lodged an asylum claim with the Home Office and has already been granted a two-year visa to remain in the UK.

Miss Bibi, who in 2003 held the title of tallest woman in the world, plans to live off benefits and take advantage of free NHS healthcare.

So teach her a jump shot (I know I know, it's tough to hit the jay in a burqa, but, hey, hoops not easy).

Aw, Fred, don't be so hard on people. It may well be truly horrendous for her in a traditional society like Pakistan. It's not like she chose to be extremely tall. And at 40 pounds a week in dole it's not like she's in UK for the money.

Anyways, once her diabetes is stabilized she may well be able to improve her english and work.

I'm not saying she should have an automatic right to stay in UK, but I do think that her case probably merits consideration; at first glance lots of claims are more frivilous than hers.
