Is UK Border Control fit for purpose?

Post by ultimaThule on 22.02.15 19:37

Regardless of whether or not Turkish Airlines failed in whatever duty it may have had to alert whichever relevant UK authority to the fact that 3 minors travelling without an adult had booked a flight to Istanbul, I find it deeply worrying that these schoolgirls were able to proceed through Gatwick without being stopped and questioned as to whether their parents were aware of/had given permission for their trip.

Also, going by holiday flights, passport control don`t insist that 15 year olds are associated with their parents. They were smart girls so probably split up and mixed with the adults.

It's very interesting to see how much anti-semitic stuff is reported in the newspapers. I'm in my mid-50's and I've yet to see anyone in UK or any of the two other countries I've lived in do anything anti-semitic.
