    Could….if they wanted to. My. Ex was a Police Sgt seconded to the Border Agency. He described the whole thing as ‘farce from the top down’.

    Alan,

    There is simply no capability or will to do this. There is an ample supply of “soundbites” and endless legislation to pretend we can and we will.

    Sometimes I visit the USA, which has reinforced its border controls since 9/11, it still has millions of illegal entrants and even they have found capability and will are NOT the complete answer.

    There is no will to make our border security better. They only give sound bites when the sh1t hits the fan. They laid off thousands of staff when they knew industrial action was looming and the Olympics were approaching fast. Then re-hired staff on short term contracts paying them a small fortune.

    Then the passport border checks were stopped as it got too busy. The gov don’t like queues for some reason. They blamed the BF boss and sacked him. He very quickly produced the email from the Gov telling him to do exactly that. Funny how that went quiet as they paid him a very large golden handshake.

    They reduce BF numbers to the minimum and expect that security will improve. How exactly can that be achieved? Especially with increased migration and more freight than we can handle!

    Like all public service, emergency or security forces the Gov strip them to the bare minimum and claim they will work smarter not harder. Tossers, what an insult to all the people working their butts off just to make it work.

    […] I have heard and read about the perceived weakness of our country’s borders. Some of it from people who have guarded our borders, some from politicos and some from well-meaning commentators.  […]
