Illegal Foreign Worker Inside Labour HQ General Secretary Knew Arnie Graf Had Visa Problem

Within Labour HQ they will be wincing in pain at the Sun’s frontpage story, because insiders knew there was a problem with Arnie Graf’s immigration status – a business visa only entitles the holder to have meetings, do deals, research, buy and sell goods and services – not to do paid work. The issue was flagged to Labour’s General Secretary Ian McNicol as recently as a few weeks ago. Legally the buck stops with him…

He has been spending months at a time in the UK, culminating in a starring role in last November’s Labour Party political broadcast in which he says “For 48 of my 50 year career I never worked for a politician or a political party. Fundamentally, I did not trust them. That is until I met Ed Miliband two years ago, along with hundreds of Labour party members and staff throughout the UK. I decided to work with Ed because I believe in his basic goodness and compassion.” A video confession that he is working illegally in the UK for the Labour Party…

Quote of the Day

Heather Wheeler talks to Burton Mail about her tweet…

“It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet – it was purely that. I also wanted to congratulate Team GB on a brilliant result and thirdly congratulate the Commonwealth countries who also did very well. Fourth, I am also looking forwarded to establishing new trade agreements. That was it – nothing more. Let’s just enjoy the summer!”
