I guess the Government has no confidence in the UK Border Agency?

Yet again private businesses are being asked to do the job that Governments are paid to do. It is ludicrous dumping the problem like this. It will substantially increase administration, swell the ranks of Government document checkers, swell the pockets of lawyers and end up forcing good landlords out of the Private Rented Sector, or having to increase rental prices. Law of Unintended Consequences. Well actually, the Law of Political Numbness.

They really need to think again! I do get so frustrated with all shades of Government & their inability to understand market forces, or how business works. It should be an imperative that Ministers must spend at least 5 years in business life before they are considered sufficiently experienced to be considered as a political candidate let alone be a Minister who will make decisions that will affect us all.
