Theresa May today faces questions about whether a secret decision taken by Home Office ministers to relax passport checks on foreigners at ports and airports allowed extremists and criminals to enter Britain.

Seems that things may not quite be as Home Secretary Theresa May has suggested.

Home Secretary Theresa May today faces questions about whether a secret decision taken by Home Office ministers to relax passport checks on foreigners at ports and airports allowed extremists and criminals to enter Britain.

Whitehall sources said that in July, Home Office ministers asked officials to draw up a range of measures to cut queues at airports and ports during the summer holiday season.

Damian Green, the immigration minister, then told the UKBA to relax checks on people carrying British passports and those from other European countries.

The order, endorsed by Mrs May, meant that thousands of foreign nationals were able to enter the UK without full checks on their travel documents.

Up until this point, May has claimed she knew nothing about this scandalous abrogation of border controls. If the evidence emerges that her Ministers ordered the relaxation, she will be political toast, and deservedly so.

  1. If this is true where do we go for our next government? The last Labour Government left the country with debts so great that it is almost impossible to comprehend the size of them. Unfortunately Labour still seem to think that the way ahead requires even more borrowing. The Conservative Government appreciates that debt must be curbed and government must spend less. They, however, are still spending more and our debts are still accumulating. The Lib Dems are in the Coalition Government but their policies are woolly and they seem to think money comes from a money tree plus they support a view of Human Rights which sees criminals, terrorists, illegal aliens and other minorities as all standing higher in the hierachy of Rights recognition than the law abiding citizen. Who then is left? Well the UKIP policy for the UK seems reasonable but they are untested and, unless they attract some high power politicians to supplement their membership look like remaining untested. Still, there is hope so I think I might give them a try next time. It they stick to their beliefs that is something.

  2. Is that so? Gosh, the news that Tories oredered a relaxation of border controls has floored me.

    Well, not really. I did say it’s difficult to imagine a bureaucrat alone would effect a siginificant policy change by himself. When you consider that the Tories are no more believers in curbing dodgy foreigners from trying to get in than the LibLabs, it’s not difficult to work out where it probably came from.

    Peter T –

    “Where do we go for our next government?” Oh nowhere, the media and talking heads are agreed that the alternative parties are simply terrible. You must vote Lib/Lab/Con.

  3. “Up until this point, May has claimed she knew nothing about this scandalous abrogation of border controls.”

    Everytime they [the politicians] move there lips .. they lie.

  4. Well the UKIP policy for the UK seems reasonable but they are untested and, unless they attract some high power politicians to supplement their membership look like remaining untested.

    So Peter T, you want the same politicians from the same political class that got us into this mess (as voted for by the electorate) to join UKIP and then get us out of this mess?

  5. No Allan, there are politicians who are ignored yet could do much to bolster UKIP. David Davis, John Redwood – he would make a good Chancellor, are just two. I have no doubt that there are good possibilities amongst Labour politicicians also such as Kate Hooey. I have difficulty in recognising similar talent among the Lib Dems but that can be overcome. It may well be that UKIP itself has a reasonable pool of talent. What would be disasterous would be to go along with the present leadership potential at present exhibited in the three major parties.

  6. This afternoon Theresa got a right lambasting from Yvette Cooper Shadow Home Secretary.
    Yvette very smugly laid into Theresa May’s incompetence with absolutely no sense of shame or humility.
    vette of course is married to Odd Balls, the Shadow Chancellor.
    Labour is fast resembling an extended family, such as might one day base themselves on Dale Farm… It’s positively incestuous!
