London is not paradise but it is hell for me

I came to Great Britain illegally in look for of a better life and to find paradise, but the reality turned out to be far removed from what I dreamed of. I end up in place that it's called little Punjab in London, homeless and hopeless migrant.

I left my Country five years ago to come to Europe and my main goal was to reach England because of large Indian community in London also back home England seems like paradise. I paid $10 000 to smugglers to bring me to London and it was wrong investment. My parents had to sell their house and borrowed some money from family members for me to come to Britain to find better life and work to pay back their money. Now I know it's impossible for me to pay back that money that I owed my parent and some of family members. I can't even tell them that I wouldn't able to pay back that money, I cut all contacts with them, I preferred for them to think that I'm dead in Paradise.

We end up in Hell of London

Is this paradise? Homeless and hopeless

I'm in hell of London I thought I was going to paradise to England, I did realise that I'm worse than a dog in England . Back home in India my friends and family members are believing that I'm living in Buckingham Palace instance I'm living under bridge in M5(Motorway) amongst rats, rubbish, etc as you can see on images.

Back home when we saw pictures of Buckingham Palace. We thought that everyone in Britain lives in Palaces what ignorant and naive person I was and now I'm paying the price. If there's hell I'm already there, now I'm in limbo I can't go back home because I'm shame to return to India without money to pay back my parents also smugglers told me to destroyed my passport before entered UK to avoid deportation.

I never thought been an illegal immigrant can be so difficult in Britain, me and my fellow Indian don't have any documentation that reason we can't work. Every day we go in car park outside Southall train station in west London standing like prostitutes for someone to pick us for very cheap labours. Last week I managed to work for someone for all day for just £10 and minimum wage rate in Britain is £6 per hour, people even exploited us because we don't have document that justify we can work in England. I don't see myself as illegal immigrant I become to believe that I'm an animal because only animal can live like this.

British people came to India occupy our country, colonised us and robbed our resources, we never say British people were illegal in India then why I'm called an illegal immigrant! I'm not going no way I come to reclaim what British people stolen for us for century! But I don't think so I'm able to get back our gold but I'll be happy if they could give me document for me to able to work even like a cleaner.

I did posted my story because I want people back home in India and around world to know that England is not paradise, back home I was living like a human being despite we didn't have so much. Also I didn't posted my story to My Continent social networking to discourage people to not come to Britain but to alert others to be prepare mentally and physically if you're willing risk all to come to Britain as illegal immigrants. It's tough here even if you've documents most immigrants ended up cleaning toilets, dish wash in restaurants, pick up fruits or vegetables or become a criminal if you can support hard jobs. Like one who are qualified for some government benefits end up living for rest of their live stucking in government benefits that mean you can't support yourself, you're on bottom of society.

One thing is puzzling in my head, how come a dog can live better than human being? How come a human being can be left to sleep under bridge in winter cold of London but an British dog or cat can sleep in house? Only because a piece paper must say that you're legal in Great Britain! Is a dog or cat has documents saying it is legal UK?

Moreover, two men who were working in slaughter house of pigs were find guilt for mistreatment of animal before pigs are slaughtered for beating them with baton and stubbing a lit cigarette on pigs. It was caught in secret camera that it was placed from Animal rights' group; they will be sentenced at Westminster Magistrates court in London. Where are human rights if I'm sleeping under bridge in cold weather of London, no food, homeless? Are animals have more right then illegal immigrants in Britain? Are we having our moral wrong as human being!

This is My Story. Jagdeesh


Illegal immigrant

Your comments


This's the reality of West World. I can feel your pain but when you're illegal in Europe or USA a dog has more rights then illegal immigrants. It's good to come out and tell your story may be it will help others to know the true about life in England.

I always want to go to live in England. It's a dream for many young Ghanaian. The hype of modern world and it's easy to succeed in Britain. Now I can see the reality of life over there. It's not paradise. People are living worse then me and I'm in Africa,I do house and I do have job, nice weather.

I was deported five years ago from Britain. I was a illegal immigrant in London. Life was tough working with another person documents to try to survive in London. But now I'm happy in India and I do have my own IT company in Dahli. Paradise is place where you're happy it doesn't matter where?

It's so sad but it's the reality many people from the 3rd world are living overseas, many are mislead & take decisions they regret later; but No need to blame those who colonized, let's all learn from JEWS after what hitler did to them organised & came up with solution to their trouble, why not us?

People in Luanda don't believe anymore in this type propaganda, immigrants who are leaving in Europe or in America they have good live. Some many Angolans returned home from portugal and others European countries they look like their arrived from Third World countries. Nothing better than home.

Your story is so helpful for those who plan to migrate abroad without clear purposes. I do think that the thing we mostly need from developing countries is EDUCATION, trainings. Once we get it, we have to come back home to develop our own countries with what we've learned. I'm from DRCongo.

It is better to stay in ones country and find solutions to local problems, since the new government came in, the treatment of people from outside the European Union has become unbearable. So if you have the opportunity to visit, do that and return home, please don't sell everything to here.

People live under the bridge at their own choice in England. It is a kind of mental instability. There are several homeless shelters, and it's not about status before you are welcomed, but such people prefer to sleep under the bridge for fear of deportation. Justice + fair play is I TREASURE in UK.

Why anyone is supporting this author is beyond logic. He came to Londob illegally therefore paying the price for it. He's not a refugee or an asylum seeker. If he was naive enough to think he can just go in and land a job without legal documents, that pretty much states why he would be unenployable.

Why is it such a horrid thing for England to have standards in regards to skilled migrants? Those who are supposed to be "highly" qualified will not need to fear if they have to resit their examination or whatever test they have to undergo. If they are good, they will pass. Otherd will complain.

Person who don't love his own country,how you ca expect other's to acccept you.All migrant people,any where in the world,always accepted as labour class and third catogary people only.Once their requirement of labour fulfilled they will always through you out on one or another reason. Mukund .

I'm also an ilegal immigrant in the USA and my life is not as bad as yours but you are rigth, dogs and other tipe of animals have more rigths then me. I know that I broke the law when I crosed the border and I also know that for being elegal in this country I am destine to do cheap labor.

It must be hard to be in this situation but many British citizens are poor, homeless and without family. This is a small country and with the best heart in the world, there is not room/resources for everyone who wants to live here. India has much wealth but it doesn't reach those who need it.

A question for you. Where do you see yourself after 2years? under the bridge? then go back to india. You have made a mistake and you have to correct it now. best is to makeup a story to tell to your family and go back.

London is hell for English people. It is OUR city and yet we are outnumbered by jobless migrants or worse - migrants taking our jobs and the social security cash our forefathers built up. English people are increasingly hating and resenting immigrants legal and illegal. England is full up. Stay away

Britain is completely intolerant of immigrants - especially MUSLIMS but also Africans and Asians. They are trying to clear the streets and bridges of the bodies that make the place look untidy. Cockroaches have more rights in Britain than unwelcome immigrants to our Land.

The British who work/live abroad do NOT go illegally. We don't expect the State to support us, we don't sleep on roads or become beggars and we do NOT tear up our passports. If you arrive illegally, you do NOT exist in that country. UK Citizens have their own problems without worrying about you!
