One jobseeker I knew in his late twenties, got sent on so many courses away that he moved to the next town so he didn't have to deal with the officer. Another officer helped him get a job within a few weeks, and a few months later, the first officer came for a clerical job interview cause they'd closed his office.

Good idea. And maybe afterwards the police can re-purpose it for transferring to jail all the BLM/Antifa rioters and looters.

Would an illegal immigrant who has just got off a rubber dinge from france be allowed to drive the bus for a living or would he have to wait for his paperwork to be done first???

1. An illegal migrant wouldn't be able to legally work in the UK.
2. The bus's owner would be contravening the law by employing someone to drive the bus without verifying the applicant's right-to-work.
3. Illegal immigrants don't 'do' paperwork, refugees and asylum seekers do. There is no automatic right-to-work for these.

Hope that helps you understand further....

ECK, it's important not to fall for that sort of negative and inflammatory terminology. The people arriving on the UK's shores this way are within their rights, and they are not given very much at all. Read ths below:

"There is no such thing as an ‘illegal’ or ‘bogus’ asylum seeker. Under international law, anyone has the right to apply for asylum in any country that has signed the 1951 Convention and to remain there until the authorities have assessed their claim"

"It is recognised in the 1951 Convention that people fleeing persecution may have to use irregular means in order to escape and claim asylum in another country – there is no legal way to travel to the UK for the specific purpose of seeking asylum.
​​​​​The 1951 Refugee Convention guarantees everybody the right to apply for asylum. It has saved millions of lives. No country has ever withdrawn from it."

https://www.refugeecouncil.org.uk/in...-about-asylum/

And:

"The definition of an asylum seeker is someone who has arrived in a country and asked for asylum. Until they receive a decision as to whether or not they are a refugee, they are known as an asylum seeker. In the UK, this means they do not have the same rights as a refugee or a British citizen would. For example, people seeking asylum aren’t allowed to work.The right to seek asylum is a legal right we all share. It isn’t illegal to seek asylum, because seeking asylum is a legal process. It also isn’t illegal to be refused asylum – it just means you haven’t been able to meet."
"People seeking asylum are not allowed to claim benefits or work in the UK. If they are destitute and have no other means of supporting themselves, they can apply to receive asylum support. This is set at around £5.66 per day"

"When a person is given refugee status [that is, if their asylum status is approved by the government], they have just 28 days to find accommodation and apply for mainstream benefits before they are evicted from asylum accommodation. Many refugees become homeless at this stage. "

https://www.refugee-action.org.uk/ab...bout-refugees/



The way that "illegal immigrant" has been deliberately applied to these people just increases division and resentment and does nobody any good at all.

ereThereTherehttps://www.refugeecouncil.org.uk/information/refugee-asylum-facts/the-truth-about-asylum/ is nothing in international law to say that refugees must claim asylum in the first country they reach. A European regulation allows a country such as the UK to return an adult asylum seeker to the first European country they reached. is nothing in international law to say that refugees must claim asylum in the first country they reach. A European regulation allows a country such as the UK to return an adult asylum seeker to the first European country they reached. This means that countries on the edge of Europe have responsibility for a lot more asylum seekers than others is nothing in international law to say that refugees must claim asylum in the first country they reach.

I am totally bloody outraged by the last few posts. Who and when was it decided that the outrage bus would be driven on UK roads???????? Are the US Interstates not suitable for this bus? How about the 1 road going across Canada well 1 and a half if you include the Yellowhead Highway (16).

Don't worry, the UK's bus will soon be stuck in a traffic jam trying to get into Kent.

I was looking at something like one of these recently since we're thinking of starting off our big grey nomading adventure in the US. The 5th wheel rig I was looking at cost new $120k 8 years ago is now being sold for just $30k. The interior looked a bit like this - minus the drivers cab of course.
