Border Force staff have told ITV News that they are unable to effectively protect the UK’s borders amid crippling staff shortages that have left morale at the agency at “rock bottom”.
They said they felt ignored and bullied into keeping quiet when they raised concerns about security.
So not only is the Coalition – Conservative and Liberal Democrat – government completely unable to reduce immigration as promised, but it has instead cut the organisation responsible for policing the immigration system until it can no longer do the job.
Theresa May will be in a proper pickle if nobody is left for her to blame.
And the government reckons there are – what? – a million or more job cuts to come?
No wonder Osborne wants to return the UK to its 1930s state.
It’s the only way the government will have a chance of performing even the most mundane functions adequately.
