I haven't yet seen the news reports myself, but I hear on the grapevine that five Nigerian cleaners have been arrested for immigration offences … as they arrived for work at the Immigration and Nationality Directorate at the Home Office.

You just couldn't make this up.


[update] Ah, finally the BBC have picked up on this.

Tony Blair says he wants all overseas criminals convicted of serious crimes to be deported immediately.

Horses and stable doors come wearily to mind; so do babies and bathwater, sledgehammers and nuts. But wasn't it ever thus, with this government?

Speaking of doors – please shut the door of No. 10 behind you tomorrow, Mr Blair, after the voters have turned off the lights.
