The ConDem regime’s remorseless betrayal of Britain’s interests has been underlined with the announcement that the agency entrusted with protecting Britain’s borders is to face £6.7 million in cuts while at the same time some £7 billion per year is spent on the illegal war in Afghanistan.
The cuts to the UK Border Agency (UKBA) have come to light after it was forced to cut three port posts at Stranraer and Cairnryan in Scotland.
According to reports, the posts had been filled by officers seconded from the police force, who were paid by the agency.
The jobs in question are those which organise anti-illegal immigration operations and intelligence evaluation. The ferry routes from Ireland and Northern Ireland in particular have long been acknowledged as a “nexus point” for illegal immigration by Third Worlders using Eire as a “backdoor” into Britain.
The practical effect of the job cuts means that in future, there will be a minimum delay of up to two hours before an UKBA officer would be able to attend any incident, according to a spokesman for Dumfries and Galloway Police.
The spokesman added that on “general day-to-day crossings, there will be limited or no service being provided, despite the significant level of immigration offences being detected on a regular basis by Dumfries and Galloway officers.”
The ports are officially between Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland and about 1.75 million people and 750,000 vehicles pass through the ports each year.
The funding cuts to the UKBA are part of sweeping cuts to all public services laid out as necessary to bring the deficit under control by the ConDem regime.
Only the illegal war in Afghanistan continues to consume billions of pounds, as the ConDemmers place the “security” of that nation above Britain’s.
To make matters even worse, Tory International development secretary Andrew Mitchell announced in July this year that British taxpayers will increase aid to Afghanistan from £500 million to £700 million over the next four years.
Compared to that colossal figure, the relatively tiny amount of £6.7 million being cut off the UKBA funding is put into perspective.
The British National Party would not only increase spending on securing Britain’s borders, but also cut all expenditure on these insane foreign wars and foreign aid.
The savings from these two steps alone (not to mention that savings incurred by halting EU membership and immigration) would go a long way to plugging the holes in the budget without curtailing essential services to the British people.
But it seems that such simple common sense escapes the ConDemmers and their evil twin, the Labour Party.
