Pommy visa scandal echoes our own Labour immigration scandals

It looks like the UK is about to have their very own immigration scandals like those of former Labour minister Taito Phillip Field and the ministers associated with Bill Liu like Shane Jones.

A former Labour minister is under investigation for half a million quids worth of funds.

Mr Vaz was investigated by the parliamentary commissioner for standards between 2000 and 2001 after it was alleged that he may have benefited from money paid by a solicitor and the billionaire Hinduja brothers in their attempts to secure British passports.

The minister was forced to resign and was suspended from Parliament for seeking to frustrate the investigation by refusing to provide financial information. Mr Vaz was cleared of the central allegation of receiving illicit funds.
