Customs Officer (Border Force) doesn't know his own Regs!

Border Force Officer doesn't know his own regs ... so cross border shopper shows him! LOL
The video was turned off because of his 'polite request' (he read it verbatim from his own regs ... something that he should know being a 2 striper!) The audio recording was of course not turned off and nor should you EVER do so! Shopper came home will all his tobacco :)


  1. Were you compelled to turn off the matter how polite his request. What could he do if you did not turn it off?

    Isn't the whole point of the video to acquire evidence should it go to court?

  2. No, the audio is what is important. Together with a transcript it's admissible in court. The most Customs can do is request video is turned away from their face ... other than that there is nothing they can do

  3. LMAO

    Can you show me these regulations???? hahaha nice try, no cigar!

  4. That is outrageous - is this chap really qualified?

  5. They appear to have been seizing a lot of cigs of late -immingham - 10.5m,hull,5.6m. why do they bother with us?!

  6. Damn! Just lost a full post as a result of this profile stuff.
    DAMN! I knew that I should have copied it!

    I'm not going to try to re-create it. Suffice to say that, in my opinion, PROOF OF YOUR ABILITY TO PAY FOR YOUR PURCHASES is paramount. I always take bank statement with me to show that I can undoubtably afford to pay. If you must 'save up', then do so in a bank account. If you get a bank loan for your holiday (and your purchases), be sure to write down your calculations of what you need for your holiday and your purchases. Leave as little as possible to chance. I don't think that anything is more important. Even a credit card statement showing available credit is better than nothing. SHOW THAT YOU CAN PAY. Siezure is far more difficult when a person can show that he can afford his purchases.
    Right. I'll copy this and try to post it...



"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.
