I'm in contact with a lady who suffered at the hands of the horrendous tactics used by UKBA/HMRC at Dover. I shall be putting up her story shortly. Dover is especially out of control in my view, this story is one of many. How many? ... well seeing as UKBA put the figures of seized vehicles at over 5000 a year one has to judge for oneself. whilst remembering that figure does not include people wronged at airports and foot passengers at the ferry ports. UKBA/HMRC also make sure that once they have seized the goods they go to great lengths to tell you that you can't win and it will cost you thousands of pounds in costs. Many of their victims believe them.
Yet our country is blind to it and l have to say intentionally blind. This includes amongst the usual suspects, the so-called big Libertarian blogs, groups and the like. Sure they can go on about the loss of civil liberties and freedom of people but god forbid that they should highlight incidents where ones civil rights are totally stripped from you as they rob you at will. No, well talk about CCTV cameras instead or how Mr Photographer was stopped taking photos or Mr Citizen was threatened with a fine because he filled his wheelbin too high. Yes they still need talking about but not at the cost of the disgraceful, illegal and totally unjust ordeals that passengers suffer day-in, day-out at our ports and airports. These crimes, for crimes are what they are, are totally ignored.
Sorry l forgot, ignore the previous paragraph ... we're smokers so are open to any attack aren't we? In essence ... it's Open Season on smokers ... all 4 seasons! Enjoy your lunch, convention, function or whatever ... sorry to have bothered you.
