    Default New Lie - New Incompetence

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/5074124.stm

    Thousands of immigrants have received tax credits they were not entitled to, BBC News has learned.
    Officials decided they did not need to prove they were eligible. All they needed to make a claim was a national insurance (NI) number.

    But on 1 June it emerged that thousands of workers suspected of being illegal immigrants were given NI numbers.

    Between April 2003 and December 2004, 2,700 families were wrongly paid credits by the Inland Revenue.

    The credits each could have been worth more than £10,000 in some cases.

    Overpayments to families have averaged £1,000 a year so if all the 2,700 families had claimed for the whole of this time it would amount to millions.

    No wonder they are flooding here in their millions. Get an NI number, get £10K each in tax credits they never paid in the 1st place.

    What a country.
