Tim is partly right but many migrants claim to be from Iran, Sudan, Abyssinia and other places, which are relatively peaceful. In fact a former judge gave a pitch which I heard stating that migrants (Better paid ones) arrive at Heathrow and throw their passports away before border check and customs.
It is then not possible to check whether they are from countries with poor human rights records or are here as economic immmigrants

Just received the threatened demand for next years tv license .The BBC blamed the delay on Covid !Only pensioners receiving pension credit can apply for support .Like many others I have agreed to pay on a monthly basis but I have done so very reluctantly . We can now look forward to an attack on other pensioner allowances ,probably starting with the winter allowance .Age Concern needs our full support to control the Whitehall politicians in this assault against old age!

I bet the pensioners will be hit in the budget, triple lock and winter fuel payment will probably go, Boris has wanted to get rid of both for a while. When will they realise that most pensioners don't get anything close to the living wage, and most of the EU seem to pay their pensioners more.

Does make you think why save for your own old age when if you don't have the money, you get it for free with pension credit.
If I make it that far, blowing the lot (but don't tell the kids!) :o)
