Enforcement Begins at Home (Office)

|

The Telegraph reports on anti-immigration efforts in London:

Five illegal immigrants were arrested yesterday while working as cleaners in the Home Office department responsible for removing illegal immigrants.

PM Tony Blair reassures that this will all be worked out in '07, when identity cards will be issued, "electronic border controls" will kick in, and Brits will sleep soundly in the knowledge that the janitors cleaning Whitehall bathrooms have pledged loyalty to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second.

  1. …Brits will sleep soundly in the knowledge that the janitors cleaning Whitehall bathrooms have pledged loyalty to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second.

    Yes, but tourists will still be running wild in the streets. …using public facilities at will. …with no one to clean them but those who have pledged loyalty to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second!

  2. electronic border controls???? What borders? It’s an island!

  3. Do we know there ain’t none o’ them illegals scrubbing the White House toilets?

  4. Yes, but tourists will still be running wild in the streets. …using public facilities at will

    As a tourist, I’ve found both England and Europe a bit lacking in facilities, public or private.

    I find the US system of privately owned fast-food restuarants to be the most bladder-friendly, modesty-friendly, and safe systems I have experienced, in an urban area.

    Or were you talking about something else, Ken ?

    They’re rebuilding Hadrian’s Wall to keep the Scots out.

  6. So it’s The Week of The Wall. Why hasn’t Bush proposed putting a wall up around Iraq to keep all those damnedable terrorists out?

  7. Mr. Prime minister, will you join me in congratulating my constituents in Ipswitch on Carlyle for not having any immigrants at all on their football team?
