Some of us will think this is a bit late to control immigration but its the thought that counts.


People from throughout the EU, with the exception of new member countries such as Romania and Bulgaria, are able to work anywhere in the single market. However, there are growing concerns that if Greece was forced to leave the euro, it would effectively go bankrupt and millions could lose their jobs and consider looking for work abroad. The crisis could spread quickly to other vulnerable countries such as Spain, Ireland and Portugal, although Britain is regarded as a safe haven because it is outside the single currency. Details of the contingency plan emerged as the euro crisis deepened further yesterday.

For years the UK has had a open door policy to anyone from europe so how this is going
to work is beyound me as it sort of a bit late.

Weather its the goverment trying to look like its doing something rather than acually doing
anything to stop a mass influx of job hunting people from europe is a good question but just
remember they did cut the UK Border Agency staff by 15%.


He says these changes were further complicated by a 15% cut in staff over the previous 12 months – the equivalent of 46 posts at Terminal 3 alone – at a time of increasing passenger numbers. "We found little evidence of a cohesive plan being in place to effectively manage the challenges that each of these organisational changes presented," said the chief inspector. "I remain concerned that this lack of planning has affected the UK Border Agency's ability to maintain an effective and efficient border control".

This so reminds me of "Children of Men". Let's just hope suicide packs don't start getting sent out by the government!

As I have said previously,all the security for the Olympics is not for that at all, but for this and to secure London's square mile as the financial capital.
