|"I won't resign!", says Theresa May - she may though|
Mr. Brodie says, in his statement regarding his resignation, "The home secretary implies that I relaxed the controls in favour of queue management. I did not. Despite pressure to reduce queues, including from ministers, I can never be accused of compromising security for convenience." He intends suing the government for constructive dismissal.
What I find hard to understand is that Mrs. May does not know which ports of entry are subject to these "relaxed" controls and how many there are. Surely she has meetings where she is briefed? I get the distinct impression that this is the same old Humpty Dumpty defence. Is she saying that because she did not actually confirm in writing that, say, ten airports could be used for experimental relaxing of the controls, that she did not discuss it? I think it smacks of disingenuous dialogue.
Maybe her political antennae have been given the same treatment as analogue TV signals. She needs to get digital. Immigration is a touchy subject. A politician with crossed wires is going haywire in a handcart. We need the truth. Whatever happened to transparency Mrs. May?
