A chief constable has said her force needs more staff and resources to cope with the pressures caused by a sudden influx of migrant workers.
Julie Spence of Cambridgeshire Police says a dramatic change in the make-up of the population in the county had meant new challenges for her officers.
For example, in the space of one year, drink-drive figures showed a 17-fold rise in arrests of foreigners.
Introducing an in-depth report into the impact of migration, Mrs Spence said the county had changed dramatically.
Police officers were now dealing with close to 100 languages without having the right skills - a situation which had landed the force with a translation bill of at least £800,000.
The force had also seen rises in some crimes which could be directly associated with migration.
As readers will know, your humble Devil has somewhat conflicting ideas on immigration but I do know hypocrisy when I see it. Trixy reports that David Davies has sent out a comment over the wires...
"The Government estimated that 13,000 people would come from accession countries. At least 700,000 have now arrived.
"Labour's open door approach to immigration failed to consider, let alone cater for, the impact of this influx on housing and public services. Senior officers are now providing damning evidence of the strain Labour's shambolic approach has placed on the police and their ability to fight crime."
Which is, of course, rather interesting; after all, every single Tory MEP voted for enlargement (and unfettered immigration) bar one.
Trixy highlights some particularly egregious examples, including this delightful chap...
Conservative MEP Van Orden spent years getting Bulgaria to be a full member of the EU, yet I doubt he makes those claims at the garden parties on the verdant lawns in Chelmsford.
So why does anyone listen to them and publish their comments? They are hypocritical fuck-heads who should be too ashamed to leave their front doors. Instead, they lie to people who are concerned about immigration and have the gall to take their taxes as wages when they are part of the fucking problem.
Pricks. Big, sweating pricks. They should be hung upside down by their toenails and made to watch coronation street backwards in Flemish for all eternity, unless they have the decency to put their hands up and say "I am a big, fat, hypocritical liar and I apologise for treating you, the voting public, like little bits of poo I find where I want to pitch my tent on a camping site."
Then I might let them come down, as long as they spend the rest of their lives trying to make amends for their actions.
