Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

    Also I have been reliably informed by a very informed insider that the established route into the northern regions of the UK via Norway for 'paper/visa light' Criminals, illegal immigrants and probably AQ etc. will be remaining unchecked for the foreseeable future as his funding has just been cut!

  3. Bit pointless worrying about things like this. IIRC one of the murderers of PC Sharon Beshinivsky fled the country by wearing a burkha and using his sister's passport.

    Unless things have changed recently, you can enter the country without a passport or any form of identification simply by claiming asylum, having flushed your passport down the kahzi on the plane.

    If the government isn't going to make the most basic effort to identify people entering or leaving the country then complaining about the lack of more sophisticated checks is a bit academic.
