Skift Take

Border and airport officials appear to be intent on making a bad situation worse.

Damian Green was called to Westminster and quizzed by MPs on what he was going to do about the snaking queues at Heathrow. He insisted he was bringing in extra staff and said that border control desks would be fully manned during the Olympic Games.

That’s good to hear, although rather hard to believe when you consider the Home Office’s plans to cut the number of people working in immigration control by 18 per cent by 2015.
