Irony

The Sunday Times:

ILLEGAL immigrants have worked as guards for a government body responsible for defending Britain’s borders.

Seven security personnel were found to be carrying forged documents, according to disclosures under the Freedom of Information Act.

One has since been arrested, five have resigned and the other is on maternity leave, while her immigration status is investigated. They were working for HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), which had responsibilities for border security until April.

This is not the first time HMRC has been caught using illegal immigrants. Previous Freedom of Information Act requests by The Sunday Times established that in April 2005 10 cleaners employed by a contractor to clean HMRC’s offices were found to be carrying forged documents. The cleaners are also believed to have worked in border control offices.
