  1. Excellent piece N2D,its about time someone highlighted the disgracefull antics of the
    so called border security,which as we all know fails miserably when it comes to illegal
    immigrants,drugs and terrorists yet seeks
    applause when frightening old ladies carrying
    a perfectly legally bought product.
    Where are all the mouthy,crusading journalists ,politicians and certain self
    glorifying freedom loving bloggers on this
    gross abuse of law and rights. Are you reading,
    my libertarian warriors ,or is the issue
    of tobacco not allowed consideration by
    your alternative agenda.
    Your silence is too blatant to be accidental.

"In the eyes of the Tribunal the review letter contained several preconceptions, prejudgments and non-sequiturs"

"the absurdity of this reason is demonstrated by simply stating it"

"We therefore find that Mr Sked misdirected himself as to the Policy in carrying out the review and his decision is therefore one that no reasonable review officer could have arrived at."

... commonly known here at N2D as 'Skeds' ... that is to say these are Judges comments regarding UKBA Review Officer Ian Sked's reasons for rejecting peoples appeals against seizures.
