This forum is for anything to do with light aviation
Coming back into the Bushe today there were three of em waiting for me and Lady Morley Steven. Three of em just to look at the passport of someone whose aircraft is based there, they have filed and stuck like glue to a FP and they have managed to convince the spooks that they are suitable to be allowed within the restricted zone.
Can someone from border control come on here and convince me that taxpayers money is justly spent on three blokes to look at the passport? Why can't they telephone the tower?
Hello do you know Steve Morley?
Yeah, he's a numpty
CPL IMC FI (A) and registering 9 on the bolometer.
These farcical checks used to happen to me regularly at Denham, but only when one particular fiso was in the tower. The last occasion when I arrived back from a regular French trip, involved two from Borders (one to hold the passport, the other to check it) two from customs, a sniffer dog and a geiger counter; when pressed on the reason for such regular searches, they basically admitted that they were being tipped off by said individual, and had a duty to "follow up all such leads" regardless of whether they came from someone with a mental problem or not.
I moved airfield before I found myself the happy recipient of a cavity search. Said fiso no longer works there I hear, due to serious illness....
The other day, a certain other airport served by the same Border Agency unit as Blackbushe had 5 Border Agency humans plus 2 dogs (one a trainee) meeting aircraft from overseas.
I can only assume that it's all tied in with Olympics security as they seem to be attending for all arrivals from outside the UK.
Fancy being called a 'numpty' by someone at Blackbushe; I wonder who that could be? (shouldn't it read 'muppet' ?)
What's an iPad? Do I really care?
Steve--you should have told them that you were one of the 250 foreign criminals staying here on human rights grounds and that you"d just been to Jersey to open your offshore account for your welfare payments. "No problem sir, anything we can do to help sir"
As reported in the telegraph--not DM.
I bet he had every 'certificate' he needed...
Meanwhile the same bunch of bar stewards are also doing this:
"A Fijian man who served in the British Army for 13 years is fighting to stay in the UK after being told he must leave the country by 9 August. ... He is married to a UK national."
