Irony at immigration
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.
