    I went into Banbury town centre yesterday lunchtime and saw a couple of Home Office Immigration vans with a couple of officers wandering around paying particular attention to one of the many nail shops that have sprung up, obviously staffed by people of south east Asian appearance. Apparently I missed the excitement as they swooped later on and raided all these shops, with "people being rugby tackled in the street" to quote the pub landlord.

    There was a rumour about prostitution, but I think far more likely is it was just people working illegally doing the nails of the people of Oxfordshire.

    Where am I meant to get my nails done now? Oh wait, I never have being a man and all, but what did women do before there were nail shops staffed by illegal immigrants?
    Will work inside IR35. Or for food.

    Which is ultimately the problem. Fewer people willing to pay into the pot who are allowed to. Similarly there are more people prepared to shop on the grey and black market; drive through Cheetham Hill on the A56 on a Sunday afternoon and you'll see several dodgy shops selling knocked off and/or snide clothing and trainers.

    who are paying business rates so the council should police them. don't blame the public. If there is a shop on the high street then its reasonable to assume its legit, a bloke selling out of a suitcase not so much.

    Of course they have closed the old people's homes & trading standards so they can build ugly bus stops as a memorial for their incompetence.

    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Can't imagine how

    EU’s passport fraud ‘epidemic’ – POLITICO

    ROME — Europe’s trade in forged and stolen passports is so out of control that the U.S. has given five EU countries until next week to act or risk losing visa-free travel rights.

    The threat comes in response to growing alarm over the rising number of lost and stolen documents in the EU, which has doubled in five years. The number of forged passports in the Middle East is also a rising concern. Interpol has data on 250,000 stolen or lost Syrian and Iraqi passports, including blank documents.

    American and European security officials speak of an “epidemic” created by a spike in demand from asylum-seekers — and from terrorists like those who carried out the Paris attacks last November, two of whom were carrying counterfeit documents.

    You've clearly never been down the A56 through Cheetham Hill on a Sunday. These shops have the equivalent of bouncers on the doors!
