Phil Woolas: Government got it wrong over Eastern European immigration

Another day and another mistake from an incompetent New Labour minister....Mr Woolas said the accession of Eastern bloc nations to the European Union is still having a "significant" impact on public services in the UK.

Ministers vastly underestimated the scale of immigration, running into hundreds of thousands of new entrants, from the so-called A8 countries who joined the EU five years ago.

Sir Andrew Green, chairman of the Migrationwatch, said that even its predictions that 40,000 Eastern Europeans would come to the UK each year were below the mark.

"There was a major miscalculation made as the minister recognised," he told the same discussion.

"At the time they said 5,000 to 13,000 a year. We said that estimate was worthless, that 40,000 would be a cautious estimate.

"We were wrong, it was three times that. The Government was 10 times wrong."

Phil Woolas also claimed for a £3.49 bottle of red wine from Tesco in breach of the rules and even put through a receipt that suggests he received a 10 per cent staff discount at the supermarket.

One bill, for £110.20 spent in the Horsham branch of Tesco, shows he spent £1.48 on panty liners, £1.19 on tampons, £2.99 on nappies and £15 on a lady's blouse.

air dye and baby wipes but did not remove £5.51 spent on Huggies nappies, and £3.49 and £3.99 on bottles of red wine even though alcohol is not allowed under the rules.

Another shopping trip, claimed for in full, included claims for £5.96 on disposable bibs, £23 on women's shoes, a £1.99 child's comic, £1.60 and £1.55 comics, £2.88 on baby wipes and a £5 ladies' jumper.

He then stopped submitting receipts for groceries but instead claimed the maximum available allowance, £4,800, on food from 2005 to 2008.

Have to disagree slightly, pay it back, lose their assets through proceeds of crime laws.

Then do a bit of hard prison time, then fuck off out of our lives.
