Irony at im­mi­gra­tion

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

ADD to Les­lie Geddes-brown’s list of or­gan­i­sa­tions guilty of the ‘in­so­lence of of­fice’ (Spec­ta­tor, Jan­uary 25) the air­port Bor­der Force. As an Aus­tralian, res­i­dent in this coun­try for the past 43 years, I am quite rightly obliged to fol­low the ‘other pass­port’ signs, but re­cently found my­self be­ing shouted at for in­ad­ver­tently stand­ing in the wrong queue. I had flown for 20 hours after at­tend­ing my mother’s funeral and to be bawled at in a pub­lic place was both up­set­ting and hu­mil­i­at­ing—this is ex­actly the abu­sive be­hav­iour that mem­bers of the pub­lic are re­minded will not be tol­er­ated.
