Smoking Hot declares War!
My 'crime' is that l am well travelled and l won't be subservient to them and l always question the legality of their methods and tactics. Not only do l do this at the scene of the stop and search but l then write formal complaints. l don't expect any satisfaction from these complaints at all as they are dealt with 'in house'. ln my experience the UKBA Complaints Team do not look at the actual complaint but just block it by replying with 'cut and paste' ..... and the obligatory UKBA operational 'secrecy' that details cannot be released because is not in the public interest! What this translates to is that it is not in the UKBA's interest! They don't want it out in the public domain exactly what sort of organisation they really are.The only reason l write the complaints is to have them documented ... for my own benefit, not theirs.
Make no mistake, these 'public servants' do everything they can to maintain their unaccountability for the methods and tactics used by the UKBA. This includes secrecy and downright lying ... as can be seen here.
l can handle it but what about those that can't? These people either are too frightened to purchase what is their legal right to do so or do buy what they believe is legitimate (which it is) only for the UKBA to ambush them when they return to the UK. Read their experiences again .... now tell me we live in a free democratic country!
Well lets see how the UKBA react to this ... l'm taking the war to them. No more wondering what will happen when l return to the UK. No more wondering if the UKBA are waiting for me. No more of any of this ... l'm going for them! l'll seek them out, ask them to identify themselves (don't want someone in fancy dress), then l shall demand my luggage is searched whether l'm carrying excise goods or not. Seeing as the UKBA take delight in recording actual confiscations, l shall want it recording whether there was no confiscation (if l'm carrying excise goods) or l wasn't carrying excise goods at all. Remember folks, if you are stopped and searched carrying excise goods (tobacco/cigarettes) that ALL your previous trips abroad will be deemed as bringing back excise goods ... whether you did or not! l shall change that.
lt's going to an interesting summer. l've lots of friends to visit, lots of places l want to see and l've decided to start now. Of course if l was a smuggler l'd avoid those ports/airports where l've been hassled and targeted ... but l'm not, so those places will be at the top of my list! lf l see any of my fellow citizens being harassed by the UKBA, l'm going to offer my fellow citizens my assistance.
The UKBA will no longer choose the when and where of future battles with me .... l will!
Smoking Hot is going to War! ... and l'm not alone!
The Resistance are on the offensive!
