You couldn't write it yourself - first, there was Nigerian national Rhoda Sulaimon, and now it seems that Ms. Blears has gone several further, running an entire team of "illegals" to man (person) her re-election campaign in Salford.
Ms Sulaimon had overstayed a student visa issued five years ago, it was reported. ""I had absolutely no idea of this woman's immigration status until she informed me... yesterday afternoon."
Ms. Blears team have now thrown up their hands in a complete surrender.
Srs. Manuel Manuel and Al Catraz have told The Spoof, "The last 12 hours have been a nightmare. Ms. Blears told us she needed to employ us for her political future. We believed her. We never thought that meant we needed to be legal immigrants."
Ms. Blears then sought a poll from her office in order to clarify her position as legal employer: Are there too many immigrants in our election campaign?
7% said 'No'
27% said 'Yes'
66% said, 'I am not understanding the question, please'
