Britain now needs to forget the Blairite tendency to do everything on the cheap and set up a proper border control system with a stand alone Customs service. BY my calculations we could do that by reallocations between BF and HMR but we will still need more people to take on the eventualities. What is essential is that both Border and Customs come out of the ambit of the HO and can in fact become a proper service again capable at WTO level. However it may be necessary to split the borders back into HMI and customs because their functions are distinct and it is far too complex for one minister to cover the whole lot. Oh an one other thing, there was always provision for the use of armed services to assist, those of you on here who have done drugs blockading work know that. It is in some respects part of defence work.
