Six immigration offenders are due to get the elbow from the UK after a UK Border Agency operation at registration offices in Gretna, Langholm and Moffat.
A two day operation that took place on 9th and 10th October investigated weddings scheduled to take place at the registration offices.

At Gretna, two Pakistani men, a 21-year-old who was due to be married to a Lithuanian woman and another aged 33, who was acting as a witness to the marriage were both arrested.

Also at Gretna a 22-year-old Pakistani man was arrested as he planned to marry a Polish woman.

In Langholm a 23-year-old Pakistani man was arrested as he attempted to marry a Polish woman.

In the operation at Moffat a 32-year-old Nigerian woman was arrested as she attempted to marry a Lithuanian man. A 23-year-old Indian man who was acting as a witness to this was also arrested.

All those arrested were found to have overstayed their visas and five of them had travelled to Scotland from the Greater London area for the ceremonies.

Is this what our elderly and vulnerable people are having their benefits cut for?

Downing Street David Cameron has announced a £50m package of events to mark the centenary of the Great War. Children from every state secondary school will travel to the First World War battlefields as part of events to mark the centenary of the Great War.

Isn’t this what history lessons are for? Are you telling me that the government is going to fork out the cost of group passports, coaches, fuel and ferry prices for a dozen of so coaches for every secondary school in the country or are hard up parents going to have to find the money.

The last time a Weller grandkid went on a trip abroad it cost her mum around £20 and they live close to a ferry and were going no distance the other side so that price had no huge fuel costs included. How much will it cost for a round trip to the battlefields starting from Carlisle which will have to include an overnight stop somewhere?
