Theresa May big cover up

The Theresa May big cover up and this is what is looking after England’s Home Land security, she’s a joke and should be dismissed from her job.

Theresa May’s shambolic leadership and cover up over the British Border Agency scandal

Sir Michael Black-Feather the English first minister has accused Theresa May and the British government of presiding over a massive cover up and a complete "shambles in England’s security" at the Home Office which has allowed terrorists and all other sorts of criminals to enter into England unchecked after border controls were secretly relaxed, she not fit for the job and can no longer be trusted and should dismissed he said.

The Home Secretary May is under increasing pressure over her bad judgment after it emerged that she extended a scheme which weakened England’s border controls and security without having detailed information about the security implications of the move which has left England now open to terrorist attacks because we don’t now know who she has or has not let into England?.

Alun Michael has also accused May, Alun Michael a former Home Office minister and member of the Home Affairs Committee, accused Mrs May of a communication failure with senior officials at the UK Border Agency, which saw England's security put at a high risk.

He added that he agreed with Sir Michael that there remained many unanswered questions over the scandal despite her explanation and apology in the House of Commons on Monday.

"Although she says she had not authorised an extension of the pilot, she didn't answer some very straight questions in the House yesterday," Mr Michael told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

He added: "We have the head of the Border Agency in to the Home Affairs Select Committee every three months. That's very unusual but the reason is because we have been very unsatisfied about the replies we have got on all sorts of issues.

"So, this comes on top. The Home Secretary knew of the deep concern about the Border Agency and yet there doesn't seem to have been the link between ministers and the chief people, particularly in the border force, which, of course, is right at the cutting edge of trying to control illegal entry to the country.

"So, it does seem shambolic on the part of ministers of the Home Office and the questions that have been asked are basically 'Surely with this scrutiny, you should have been on top of the agency, you should have known what was happening?"

A leaked document shows that in July the Home Secretary May authorised UK Border Agency staff not to carry out full checks on the passports of hundreds of thousands of people arriving at British airports and ports for a six-week period.

In September, Ms May extended the scheme – which was never made public – for another six weeks, despite having only “very limited information” about the security consequences of the change.

The leaked document suggested officials had been given discretion further to relax passport controls without seeking ministerial approval. Last night the Home Office insisted that this was a long-standing measure to allow staff to deal with emergencies.

In the House of Commons, Ms May came under intense pressure as she was accused by Labour of giving the “green light” to weaker border controls and Right-wing Conservatives questioned her judgment.

She insisted she stood by her actions, but admitted that she did not know how many suspected terrorists, criminals and illegal immigrants had been able to enter the country under the relaxed checking system she put in place.

The Daily Telegraph reported that in July Ms May ordered the UKBA’s Border Force to reduce the checks it applied to people entering Britain with European passports. As that “pilot scheme” continued, border staff then relaxed the checks applied to non-European passports too.

Ms May passing the buck and trying to cover herself accused Brodie Clark, the suspended head of the Border Force, of ordering that second relaxation without her permission which was a lie its was under her orders.

The big cover up by May, “The paperwork will show without ambiguity that the relaxation of checks that occurred was not sanctioned by me,” she told MPs, adding that Mr Clark could face criminal charges for his actions, when its May who should be facing criminal charges as she was the Boss?.

Sir Michael said; “As a result of May’s unauthorised actions, we will never know just how many people have now entered our country that should have been prevented from doing so,” which was all down to Ms May very bad judgement and she’s not fit for the post in making that kind of very bad misjudgement  he said.

May has tried to assured MPs that under her rules foreigners had still been checked against a Warnings Index of suspected criminals and terrorists which we now know was nothing but a pack of lies.

The second relaxation of passport rules began at an unknown point during Ms May’s authorised pilot. She said she only learnt of it last week when she was informed by senior officials.

Before the pilot was due to conclude in mid-September, Ms May decided to allow another six-week relaxation of passport rules.

A Home Office official said Ms May took that decision based on “very limited interim information” about the pilot in September.

“It was a very limited overview, so she decided she needed more information,” the official said. “There was not enough data, so she extended the pilot.”

Mrs May’s pilot allowed border officials not to check the electronic chips in modern passports, which contain photographs and other “biometric” data about holders.

Unlike simple photographs, that information is almost impossible to forge. Ms May’s decision to allow the chips to go unchecked was criticised by Philip Hollobone, a Conservative MP. “I and my constituents would want every biometric chip to be checked,” he told her.

Supporting Sir Michael view, Yvette Cooper, the Labour shadow home secretary, condemned Ms May’s handling of England’s borders, telling MPs that the July decision to loosen passport controls had led to the second relaxation.

Mrs Cooper said: “The truth is that instead of strengthening the checks year on year as all previous ministers had committed to do, this Home Secretary decided to water them down as official government policy, even though she never told this House.

She added: “She has blamed officials for relaxing the checks further than she intended. But she gave the green light for weaker controls.” Mrs Cooper also questioned Mrs May’s claim not to have known about the second relaxation of passport checks until last week. UKBA staff had complained to managers about the change as early as August, she said.

Mrs Cooper asked: “How on earth did ministers not know about this?

''At best they were deeply out of touch at worst complicit in a series of serious breaches of border control.”

During her hour-long appearance, Mrs May occasionally faltered, and at one point admitted that she did not know at which airports her relaxed rules had been implemented.

Only after she was passed a note by an aide was she able to tell MPs that under her pilot scheme, passport rules had been eased at all airports across England and Northern Ireland.

In some show of support, David Cameron sat next to Ms May for most of her time in the Commons but knowing she was doomed Cameron only really has one option and that is to replace her.

But Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, pointedly refused to back the Home Secretary, saying the issue was of “great concern”.
