Fracking hype!

Posted: June 28, 2013 in British jobs for British workers, Environment, Law & Disorder

This is the publicised scare,

“Britain could face a return to Seventies-style power rationing to prevent blackouts.The disturbing news came amid warnings that the country may not be producing enough energy to keep the lights on by 2015.”

This scare is because,

“Britain could see a repeat of the North Sea oil boom after it was confirmed that vast deposits of gas lie beneath much of the country. Ministers said ‘today is the day that Britain gets serious about shale’ gas after revealing resources are many times greater than estimated.The British Geological Survey has estimated there may be more than 1,300trillion cubic feet of shale gas under the North of England alone. Industry experts claim even if only 10% is recovered – more than all of the gas produced from the North Sea – it will be enough to power Britain for 50 years.”

and all this hype of power cuts and return of boom times is to counter opposition to Fracking.



Anyway, back to illegal workers being caught

S&A_bakTwelve illegal workers have been arrested following an operation by Home Office Immigration Enforcement officers in Cheatham Hill, Manchester. On the morning of Tuesday 25th June officers visited S & A Bedding on Honey Street.
Checks were made on the immigration status of staff which revealed twelve Pakistani men aged between 20 and 68 working illegally at the premises. Nine of the men had overstayed their visas and three of them were working in breach of their visa conditions. All the men were arrested and are currently detained pending removal from the UK.

Meanwhile in Wales

Eight men are in detention awaiting removal from the UK after they were arrested by in Bridgend, Swansea and Port Talbot.
Officers raided Natraj Tandoori, Wyndham Street, Bridgend, on 23rd June as they entered the building, two men tried to ‘Scapa Flow’ (go), one was caught by officers covering the exits, while another was found hiding under a bed in upstairs accommodation.
After immigration checks were carried out on the pair and on others present, five men from Bangladesh were found to have no right to be in the UK. Three had over-stayed their visas while two were found to have entered the country illegally.

Earlier the same day, officers raided Cinnamon Kitchen, Hollywood Park, on Aberavon Seafront. Two men attempted to leg it from the restaurant’s kitchen, perhaps they are Olympic contestants who didn’t return to their country, anyway they were caught by officers. Checks revealed that the pair – both from Bangladesh – were immigration offenders. One had overstayed his visa while the other had entered the country illegally.
An 8th offender was arrested by officers when an Afghan man was detained at an address in Rheidol Avenue, Clase, Swansea. Checks revealed he was a failed asylum seeker who had not left the country when his claim for protection was turned down. Those arrested were taken to Neath and Bridgend police stations for further questioning. They have since been transferred to immigration detention to await removal.
