Registrars and members of the public reported more than 9,100 bogus weddings last year but only 90 people were removed, the Home Affairs Committee was told.
Many more go unreported because register office staff fail to tell immigration officials, said borders inspector John Vine. Doesn’t anyone in this country do their jobs properly?
He explained to MPs the route to UK citizenship was a massive worry and along with proxy weddings, where neither bride nor groom has to be present, was the “biggest threat” to immigration control.
Last night Tory MP Douglas Carswell said: “It sounds like it’s happening on an industrial scale, but there is nothing we can do because we are part of the EU.”
No me old ‘china plate’ (mate) it’s nothing to do with being a part of the EU it’s because the government is gutless and won’t stand up to the EU bureaucrats, what are they going to do declare war on Britain?
