Bordering on the ridiculous.

Our new leader Mr Brown has promised a new Border 'Force'.

For some reason the Media seem to churn on the notion that Mr Brown will be the new broom ..... Same horse, different jockey as far as I am concerned.
We have an amalgamation of Immigration,Customs and Excise and Visa application staff. Possibly uniformed?

Formidable.

Especially if the devious foreign miscreant tries to get in the country before 6pm.

Anyway Dibble still finds himself as supervisor. The boss called me into the office and said 'Keep it up Dibble your doing well'
'Cheers boss' I say.
As I close the door I hear him say 'No-one else would do it'
I stopped.'Sorry Guv?'

He paused. " Ernie Els..British Open..couldnt do it"
I shrugged.
As I closed the door he also said something about being a complete 'putter'

I didnt know he was a Golf fan.

Just wait till Noddy hears about this. I'm sure he will suspect the wall is about to be re-built. Border patrols.....whatever next ?

Force? Surely he means a new "Service".

Thinking about it,I reckon Lothian and Borders could have a good argument for potential breach of 'Corporate identity'

The F word is still officially a no no I think.
Mind you 'Border Service' sounds like an airport book/coffee shop.
Probably about as much use though

Nah.....that sounds a bit too common sense 'joined up thinking' for this Sceptered Isle.

Border shmorder.... when has anything "worked together" in this country... its full of self serving liars and as usual the little people will be dumped on. This smacks of a government setting up some mug to take the heat off them at the eaeliest possible chance.
We have border controls. We're a bloody Island for pity's sake.
Immigration at airports and ports. SO15 at airports and ports.
Customs at airports and ports. Coast guard. Navy and countless other military, thats before you count the police and countless other security officers.
Whats the problem? government funding, or lack of it and woeful neglect by them too. There are already dozens of layers of security for this country. All we need to do is strengthen what we have, and take the politics out of protection.

Bah Humbug!
