Boeing has got the border security boot in the US; why does anyone think the UK can succeed?
The lauded e-border security system custom built by Boeing has just gotten the boot as a failure on the Mexican border.
Why on earth does the UK think it can be any more successful after centuries of being given the run-around by smugglers? Britain is perfect for surreptitious entry, all you need is a row boat. Then the illegals melt into the ethnic areas and another one wins.
People smugglers and would be illegal immigrants are a determined lot and have more tricks than you think.
The fact that the police stopped hundreds of thousands of people, with a handful of 'hits' - none terrorist - is indicative of the failure that should be expected unless the public is prepared to submit to an even more rigorous regime than those already rejected by the pols and the citizens.
One answer is to make countries of departure more attractive so people might be persuaded to stay home.
