U.K cuts immigration

Britain on SAturday signalled a shift in ts immigration policy with Immigration Minister Phil Woolas proposing a cap on the number if immigrants who should be allowed to enter Britain every year. He said it had been "too easy to get into this country in the past," but now it was "going to get harder" as he planned a "tougher" immigration policy to protect local jobs amid fears of large-scale unemployment threatened by the current economic crisis. This would mainly affect immigrants from Asia and Africa. Mr.Woolas said: "As we stand, we don't know how many foreign nationals there are. I want to end up in a situation where we know and the public know how many people are coming in and going out of country. There has to be a balance between the number of people coming in and the number of people leaving." Mr.Woolas' remarks, in an interview to The Times, were challenged by his party colleague and chairman of the Commons Home Affairs Select Committee, KeithVaz, who expressed his astonishment. Mr.Woolas, whose Oldham constituency has a Pakistani and Bangladeshi population, denied he was pandering to racism and said immigrants were the "strongest advocate of fair and firm immigration rules."

Saurav Ganguly gets threat

Sanjay Gadhvi is baffled and upset because his film "Kidnap" finds itself at the centre of a controversy, perhaps "inspiring" the threat to kidnap Saurav Ganguly's daughter. Following newspaper reports that Saurav Ganguly has recieved threats through post that if he does not pay up Rs. 2 crore as advance ransom, his six-year-old daughter Sana would be kidnapped, Sanjay Gadhvi is not pleased. "This makes me terribly upset. First I have to go through all that the critics have said about the film and now people talking about my film inspiring a kidnap!" he says. It had happened earlier with "Dhoom" when bike robberies took place after the film was released.
