It's that time of year again. [20110930|16:16]

I have figured out how to solve the UK's unemployment problem.

The new forms for settlement in the UK, dreamed up by the ever-brilliant Border Agency, have a new requirement. Not only must original documents proving identity, income and qualifications be provided, but photocopies must be sent in as well. The year's worth of bank statements alone could probably be used to beat whales to death.*

This just goes to show that the UK Border Agency staff must be desperately over-worked. They don't even have time to make photocopies any more. Clearly they are in need of a whole army of entry-level staff to ensure that all the paperwork is triplicated and carefully filed so it can moulder gently in basements.

I got the second two, but had to hunt for the first. Been soooo long since I watched that!

It's one of my favourite episodes. I think I could probably recite it from memory.

Six ningies for you! I'm not sure how you're going to collect, but they're yours in theory anyway.
