    The worst 'good luck' card ever?

    A Mexican illegal immigrant was stopped as he entered Britain when a search of his luggage uncovered a good luck card for his "new life in the UK".

    The man, arriving at Manchester Airport from Los Angeles, claimed he was on a brief visit to a friend who was opening a restaurant in England's North West.

    But he admitted planning to work illegally after border officers found the card and pages of Mexican recipes.

    The 40-year-old chef was removed on Friday, a day after landing in the UK.

    After questioning, he had admitted a plan to bring his family out from the US to join him if he settled well in Britain.

    "We will not tolerate people coming here to work illegally," said a UK Border Agency spokesman.

    "People wanting to visit the UK must play by the rules. Those who do not are sent back."
    Strange story.. he got into the US without problem, he boarded a plane to the UK no problem... and we picked him up.

    As for the card, he and his wife must have been as confident of sneaking into the UK as he was of sneaking into the US. Thankfully we've sent him packing already - the question is... back to the US or back to Mexico?

    Ha, our food made us the nation we are today... never stand behind an Englishman after he's had a full English breakfast.

    Britain is racist.

    Are you seriously thinking you can hold a candle to Mexican food in that department?

    British food is actually rather tasteless.

    Have you ever had traditionally British food? They have a long standing tradition of being against good food.

    Yes, I have. Lots of it.

    I eat way to much Yorkshire pudding.

    This is all in fun.


    Thank you for your concern.

    Are you willing to test the results while I try both? It's not a job for the faint hearted I can tell you. No chickening out and bringing a gas mask either.
