London Aliens / Liens

This may not be what the reader would expect for our first dedicated post on the Alien (A-Lein) subject area but it’s worth noting what a 'Lein' is to uncover exactly what the media is talking about when they discuss illegal aliens.

In law, a lien is a form of security interest granted over an item of property to secure the payment of a debt or performance of some other obligation. The owner of the property, who grants the lien, is referred to as the lienor and the person who has the benefit of the lien is referred to as the lienee.

It's all about money, debt and ownership, an a-lien is a person who is not bound it seems by law to pay dues to their newly aquired home country. In the U.K. we have many legal a-liens and they have the ability to not pay taxes - London has become a global tax haven for the worlds super rich.
