Illegal immigrants, enough’s enough!

Posted: January 22, 2011 in Broken Britain

It’s about time our government had the testicular fortitude to refuse entry into the UK to lorries caught with illegal immigrants on board. Don’t tell me it can’t be done under EU free movement of goods laws because our Customs and Excise have been, for years, seizing vehicles and goods from returning holidaymakers for having gone over the limit of allowed tobacco and alcohol. So much for free movement of goods.

IlieAnyway at 07:40 on 7 January UKBA officers at Calais, checking vehicles bound for Dover, examined a Romanian registered freight vehicle with a Romanian driver heading for Redditch.

A detection dog alerted his handlers to the presence of some stowaways in the back of the lorry. Officers then boarded the trailer and found five people hiding among the load of mixed goods which were en route to Redditch. All the stowaways were identified as Eritrean nationals.

Another five wanna-be illegals, hiding in a lorryload of Peugeot car parts headed for Coventry, were prevented from entering the country after being sniffed out by a UK Border Agency detection dog.

At 8am Wednesday 13 January UK Border Agency officers at Calais, checking vehicles bound for Dover, examined a Polish registered lorry with a Polish driver. All the stowaways were identified as Sudanese nationals.

Two foreign nationals, hiding in a lorry headed for Birmingham, have been prevented from entering the UK after being found by a UK Border Agency detection dog.

At 05:45 on Monday 17 January UKBA officers at Calais, checking vehicles bound for Dover, examined a Lithuanian registered lorry with a Lithuanian driver. Once again a sniffer dog found stowaways this time men hiding among the load of mixed goods which were en route to Bordesley in Birmingham. The stowaways were identified as Eritrean nationals.

Six would-be illegal immigrants have been prevented from entering the country after UK Border Agency officers found them hiding inside a lorry load of sugar heading for Polegate in East Sussex.

The Vietnamese men were found in a British registered lorry at Calais port on Friday 14 January when officers were alerted to their presence by Ben, a three-year-old sniffer dog.

Five would-be illegal immigrants have been prevented from entering the country after UK Border Agency officers found them hiding inside a lorry bound for Exeter.

The men, all from Eritrea, were found in Calais after officers working in the French port were alerted to their presence by Lola – a body detection ‘sniffer’ dog. Officers searched the Polish-registered lorry and found the five men hiding alongside its load – a chocolate making machine.

Only a caution for illegal immigrant fraudster

Malasian, Foo Hoo Lim, who had overstayed his visa by several months, admitted using cloned credit cards in Mothercare, Maidstone, on Wednesday, January 19.

The 64-year-old tried to buy £500 of gift vouchers on three cloned cards, each of which was declined. He returned a short while later to try again but this time was detained by police, who seized the cloned cards.

Police discovered Lim had already spent nearly £1,000 using the credit cards on a Mulberry handbag in Fenwicks, Canterbury.

This is what happens when government league tables become more important than children’s education.

A primary school head teacher of Shoreham Village School, Kent has been found guilty of “unacceptable professional conduct” after she changed pupils’ exam answers in May 2009

Frances Fish “extensively and systematically” altered test papers, and some children’s entries were declared null and void.
She changed answers on 32 papers, on subjects including English reading, English spelling, science, maths and mental arithmetic.

After finding her guilty, the committee imposed conditions on Mrs Fish’s continuing right to teach, which ban her from managing or administering external examinations, tests or assessments of achievement or attainment.

Mrs Fish, head teacher at the school from January 1, 2007 until her resignation on August 31, 2009, was responsible for administration and management of the Key Stage 2 tests, taken by Year 6 pupils.
