Anyone watch the Graham Norton Show last night we didn’t see it all, Mrs W and I tend to flick around the tv programmes whilst we drink our cocoa before going up the wooden apples and pears ‘stairs’ to bed.
Anyway I digress, the show had been on for a bit as Norton had obviously finished speaking to Kenneth Branagh, his first guest. I don’t think Branagh spoke again during the rest of the show probably just as well as he seemed to spend the rest of his time with a silly smirk on his face and his hands making the official sign language sign for female genitalia. The things people do to amuse themselves when they’re bored.
Not a bright idea to employ illegal workers.
UKBA officers visited three stores owned by the Idea Bright DIY chain, two on Fulham Road, London, SW6 and one in New Kings Road, on Thursday 12th January 2012, questioning staff to check they had the right to work in the UK.
Two men aged 34 and 21 were arrested for working in breach of their student visas at the New Kings Road store, while a 26-year-old man was also arrested for working in breach of his visa at the store at 672 Fulham Road.
At separate premises at 772 Fulham Road a 22-year-old man was arrested for working in breach of his student visa, while a 29-year-old was arrested for obtaining leave to remain by deception.
All five Indian nationals are now in detention awaiting their removal from the UK.
Idea Bright Ltd were served with notices telling them that they face fines of up to £10,000 per illegal worker unless proof is provided to the UK Border Agency that the correct right-to-work checks were carried out. Serves them right should have gone to the Job Centre for their staff.
