I did a small post on the immigrant saga at Byron Burgers last week, but the Today BBC bunch brought it out again this morning by interviewing one of the deported ‘illegals’ in Brazil. Now the theme of the piece was all about the harsh and ‘underhand’ manner in which these clowns were trapped; how terrible it was that someone who was ‘paying taxes’ was shovelled onto a plane, and kicked out.
This clown accepted that he had a fake Italian passport, and a faked NationaI Insurance card, and was thus working totally illegally, but his ‘beef’ (pardon the burger bun pun) was with the underhand manner in which Byron Burgers planned the ‘illegals’ takedown, with stories of a ‘staff meeting’ and ‘health and safety’ concerns about rare (cooked, that is) burgers. Just imagine, a British Company taking steps to comply with the law, incidentally avoiding a huge fine: and with apprehending a bunch of thieving (I use the term deliberately because they stole the jobs from legally-entitled people) chancers who knew they were breaking the law, but went ahead, fooled the company by the use of forged and faked documents, and laid themselves wide open to immediate deportation.
But the best part is where the solicitor gained full agreement from the Beeboids presenter, that it was so, so terribly sad that the Borders Agency had stooped so low during their enforcement of the LAW; a point worth noting that all the Unions who were demonstrating were keen to publicise; that the Borders Agency were just wrong, and harsh, and just plain nasty: and so misunderstanding of these people; who only wanted to work in Britain!
Aand these people state that they represent all that is best in Great Britain!
