UK Immigration raids Indian restaurant during political party dinner

uk-immigrationUK immigration officials raided an Indian restaurant during a UK Independence Party conference dinner, where failed leadership candidate Lisa Duffy was dining with her staff in Bournemouth.

No action was taken against the curry house that had completed pre-employment checks, but the chef ran away.

UKIP has campaigned for tougher border controls to cut illegal immigration.

The spokesman for Ms Duffy, Jay Beecher, said watching the chef run was a surreal moment, but politics can sometimes be such a stale and serious affair, so you have to see the funny side of things, as he was tickled by the irony.

The Border Agency questioned the staff about their right to work in the UK.
