No room at detention centre

Posted: May 29, 2011 in British jobs for British workers

IlieJohn Vine, independent chief inspector of the UK Border Agency (UKBA), says operations have been cancelled or delayed because immigration removal centres were too full. Mr Vine raised his concerns following a short-notice inspection of Croydon’s local immigration team.

UKBA officers had planned to undertake six operations during the day of the assessment. But four of these visits had to be cancelled due to a lack of available detention space allocated to Croydon’s team.

Of the two operations that did go ahead UKBA officials were unable to enter the first property but were granted access to the second address. There, officers found five people but no arrests were made after they were found to be living legally in the UK.

In that case why didn’t they carry out another ‘op’ as space must have been available to carry out the first two raids.

Mr Vine had given the UKBA 24-hours notice of his intention to observe the team during a single day.

Apparently new detention space are to be opened in Harmondsworth, in West Drayton, and in Morton Hall prison in Lincoln.

If they were slicker in deporting illegals there would be plenty of available detention places.

Update on killer cucumbers

IlieThe death toll in Germany from an outbreak of E.coli caused by infected cucumbers has risen to at least 10.

The cucumbers, believed to have been imported from Spain, were infected with a severe complication of E.coli called hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS).

Officials in the Czech Republic said the cucumbers may have been exported there, as well as to Austria, Hungary and Luxembourg.

Remember to do your bit to save lives, buy British cucumbers.
