Is British analog of Kosovo, possible? For example - Independent Islamic Republic of Midlands?The 90 staff at Crown House in Corby, Northants - which handles prison contracts for catering, transport and prisoner escorts - have been told their jobs are to move to a new building in Leicester.
Philip Hollobone, the Conservative MP for nearby Kettering, said some of his constituents had been told they were to lose their jobs.
He said he had seen a leaked letter in which Home Office director of finance Anne Beasley set out four "key influencing factors" in the decision to move the office.
One of those, said Mr Hollobone, was Corby's ethnic makeup, which is almost 94 per cent white British, compared with Leicester's 59 per cent.
"It is the wrong move for the wrong reasons," said Mr Hollobone.
