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.
