UK 'tops 2002 asylum seeker list'

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Halving the total? Rubbish. In this part of the world, the level of asylum seekers moving in, especially from Albania and Kosovo, those well known racked-by-civil-war-and-famine countries, has easily doubled in the last year. The Ethiopians are here in greater numbers too. The numbers are now at a level, where local ethnic minority community leaders are saying "Enough" . But that doesn't get to the news.

    What's the best way to halve the number of applications? Issue half the number of forms :evil:
     
  2. I think they were able to meet the targets by telling fibs - i.e immigration officers were told not to process applications but bundle them into the centres and give them lots of vouchers...... :evil:
