Not so damned clever these Chinese
A Chinese restaurant has been raided by immigration officers for the second time in five months.
Eleven suspected illegal immigrant workers were arrested by UK Border Agency officials after they raided China China in Preston Street, Brighton.
Six of the suspected illegal immigrants arrested yesterday were the same workers caught by officials in the previous raid in October last year.
The owner of China China, which is one of Brighton’s best known Chinese restaurants, now faces a potential fine of £110,000 on top of the £55,000 fine he received when his business was first raided.
I thought the Chinese were supposed to be clever. This smacks more of obtuseness or arrogance.
The Argus called China China yesterday but received no reply or comment.Inscrutability will get you nowhere in this case, old son.
However, look again.
Six of the suspected illegal immigrants arrested yesterday were the same workers caught by officials in the previous raid in October last year.Why are these six still here?
