Look what\’s happening to immigration as they\’re bringing in all these untrained people!
Terror suspects on the Home Office watch list are entering the UK in the runup to the Olympics without the necessary security checks, according to frontline officials at Heathrow.
One senior border officer told the Observer that inexperienced new recruits, deployed to shorten queues after complaints over lengthy waiting times, are repeatedly \”missing\” passengers of interest who should be referred to counterterrorism officers when they reach passport control.
The official said he was personally aware that three terror suspects – all of whose names are registered on the Home Office suspect index system – had been waved through by staff on his shifts since the start of July. Border officials should immediately notify counterterrorism police or MI5 if they suspect that \”SX travellers\” are attempting to enter the UK. Another colleague alleged that five suspects were \”missed\” in one day earlier this month.
A couple of things. All of this is entirely uncheckable, of course. Stories, not facts.
Plus, well, if you know that naughty boys were going through then why didn\’t you do something about it? Rather than leak to a newspaper?
And most important, what would we actually expect the union side of a protected workforce to say when new people are drafted in to do their job?
Yeah, they\’re great mate, no reason at all to have all the training and restrictive practices? Any old sod can do this job on a day\’s training?
