    Not particularly surprising to be honest if it is someone from a developing country. They all aspire to a better life and to escape corruption, crime, poverty, famine, water shortages, electricity shortages, strikes every other day, long commutes, pollution, low standard of living etc etc. A developed western country is a very easy way to escape from their current predicament. Also, in countries like India, Pakistan etc you suddently earn more respect once you have settled in a western country.

    It's not "legal" but your chances of getting caught are very very slim. (unless someone shops you)

    Well, I doubt the OP will return, so we've lost that opportunity.

    Sounds a bit like life for the average UK contractor after the outsourcing/cheap worker import boom.

    Seriously, the OP should consult an immigration lawyer or his own embassy/consulate. The queues at the Home Office in Croydon start at Folkestone! Expert advice is always worth seeking. People who have exceeded their visa restrictions are much easier to find if they are in work paid for by UK employers. Just think of all the records providing a trail!

    Do it legally and everybody is happy. Keep away from the shysters...that usually ends in tears.
