UKBA .... USA style ... US Border Patrol

Hopefully soon we will begin to have videos of the UKBA. Note the tactics of the US Border Patrol Officer as they are similar to how the UKBA operate. They don't give orders ... they merely ask you but most people interpret it as an order. Note also that she won't answer specific questions which is exactly the same tactic as used by UKBA ...  including no name or ID given when asked. This checkpoint is 40 miles from the actual border! Coming soon to UK?

  1. I admire the guy's nerve. An object lesson to us all on how to deal with petty officialdom.

  2. Too bloody right. What they are trying to do is to get you to obey their uniform. lt's nothing more than an abuse of power. Stuff em.

  3. Terrific !!!!
    I shall certainly be using that line if I am ever stopped at customs.
    A true gem.


"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.
