Sunday Times

A couple of items of interest from today's London Sunday Times.

First is this front page story on the level of illegal immigrants in the UK, allegedly estimated by Home Office officials at around 500,000.

Second, an interesting feature article (book extract) by Tarquin Hall on the immigrant 'community' in East London. (Read it and you'll see why I put quotes round 'community'.) The article reads not unlike a spoof by Sacha Baron-Cohen, but it is, apparently, genuine.

(Added) ...and here's another extract from Tarquin Hall's book, that I thought was part of the same article, but has a separate URL.
