After a tip-off was given to The Mail on Sunday, it’s come to light that the outgoing head of the UK Border Force has sparked a massive row over the wording in his departure speech.
It was reported that the former head of immigration enforcement, Paul Lincoln, ended his speech by quoting: “People are talking about immigration, emigration and the rest of the bloody thing. It’s all bloody crap” these were lines taken from rock star Shane MacGowan, of The Pogues.
Mr Lincoln concluded his speech, finishing with, “We’re all human beings, we’re all mammals, we’re all rocks, plants, rivers. Bloody borders are just such a pain in the bloody a***”
The Home Office we’re pressed to comment on this speech, but they declined. Instead, The MoS claimed a source said, ‘It was a small part of a much wider speech to friends and colleagues.’
With records being broken last week regarding the number of illegal migrants crossing the Channel to get to Britain in a single day, the words spoken by the outgoing head of the UK Border Force leaves a sour taste for those who would expect our borders to be secure which at the moment they are not.
This year more than 23,500 have crossed the Channel, making it to Britain. Those who turn up are mostly undocumented, and very few have been deported for breaking the law. Instead, the government uses taxpayers’ money to house and feed those who come to Britain illegally until their asylum claims are concluded.
