Amateur boxing chiefs will discuss this week whether female boxers must wear skirts at the London Olympics.
The Amateur International Boxing Association (Aiba) has previously asked boxers to trial the skirts to help spectators distinguish them from men.
At the European Championship in October, Poland and Romania were the only nations to do so. How insulting is that, what are they saying female boxers are so ugly they look like blokes?
All seven of Aiba’s commissions are meeting in Thailand from 18-22 January. A final decision is expected in July. That doesn’t give much time to complain, boycott or make the organisers look silly by the women boxers wearing miniskirts and suspenders.
Unemployment going up, that’s hardly surprising.
Two illegal workers have been caught at Café Mela, 22 Foregate Street, Worcester takeaway following a UK Border Agency raid on 11th January 2012.
They sealed all exits before questioning the staff and checking their immigration status.
Two illegal workers were identified. Both were Bangladeshi men. One had overstayed his visa. He was arrested and taken into immigration custody. The other illegal worker was escorted off the premises as he is currently on immigration bail.
Four illegal workers have been arrested after a UK Border Agency raid on the Prithi Raj, South Street, Lancing at 5pm on Thursday 12th January 2012 to carry out checks on staff working there.
Four Bangladeshi men were arrested. A 25-year-old had entered the country illegally while the others, who were aged 35, 37 and 39, had overstayed their visas.
The 25-year-old and 39-year-old were found with forged residency documents and initially gave false details to officers.
Restaurants in Pontypool and Merthyr Tydfil both face large fines after six illegal workers were found there by the UK Border Agency.
Acting on information received, UK Border Agency officers went to Qmin, High Street, Merthyr Tydfil -formerly called the Zeera- on Thursday 12th January 2012.
Immigration checks on those present revealed that two men, aged 20 and 31, had stayed in the UK illegally after their visas expired while a 36-year-old man had entered the country illegally.
The three, all from Bangladesh, were arrested and remain in immigration detention pending their removal from the UK.
On Friday 13th January, that was an unlucky date for the illegal workers, officers visited Jewel Balti, High Street, Pontypool, where three more illegal workers from Bangladesh were found.
Checks revealed that a 31-year-old man and 33-year-old man had overstayed their visas, while a 25-year-old man was working in breach of the conditions of his student visa.
The three were arrested and taken to Ystrad Mynach police station. They were later released and must report weekly to a local police station unless they ‘scapa flow’ and find illegal work somewhere else.
I wonder if there is a website somewhere out in cyberspace just for illegal workers maybe something like http://www.illegaljobs.com. Gor blimey stone the crows, when I wrote that made up website name a link came up on my WordPad asking me if I wanted to open the link and there is in fact a website already called that; something to do with getting jobs in Canada. Can you Adam and Eve that?
