May Wins Day mdi-fullscreen

The former head of the UK Border Force was on fiery form at the select committee yesterday, but he let slip on his follow-up Today programme appearance this morning: “I should have more thoroughly checked out what the Home Secretary knew or did not know.” Cue sighs of relief from May’s office…

And it doesn’t stop there. The Mail have got hold of the draft findings of one of the three investigations into Clark and his actions. Apparently it reveals:

“…fingerprint checks on foreign nationals who need a visa to enter the UK were relaxed on 164 occasions. This was despite the Home Secretary explicitly saying that, even in ‘extremis’, this must not happen in case it allowed those from terrorist hotspots such as the Yemen to enter unchecked.”

In other words – a rogue agent. A lot of noise has been made about the word rogue being briefed out about Clark, but on the back of this it seems pretty accurate…
