UK immigration officials 'have had no information' about hotel quarantine

Border staff not briefed about even basics of Covid protection system starting on Monday, says union

Immigration officials expected to enforce a mandatory quarantine intended to protect the UK from new coronavirus variants have not been briefed on even the basics about how the system will work, little more than 48 hours before it begins, the Guardian has been told.

The Immigration Services Union (ISU), which represents many of the Home Office’s immigration officers, said that before the start on Monday of the new policy, staff had not been told if they would be expected to check for arrivals who had not properly declared their status, or when and how those obliged to quarantine would be taken to hotels.

“They’ve had no information at all,” said Lucy Moreton, the general secretary of the ISU. “They can watch the media, read statements from ministers, but that’s pretty much it.”

They can watch the media and read statements - surely that is enough?

(nb this is sarcasm)

Newsnight might be interesting tonight, I wonder if they'll offer any kind of apology to Camila Batmanghelidjh and Kids Company after joining in the right wing feeding frenzy at the time with unfounded allegations of sexual abuse. That was during Allegra Stratton's tenure of course.

Just begun season 2 so shush.

I was happy with the outcome of Season 1 despite shouting at the judges a few times and calling them idiots. It turns out even glassblowing can incite my fury. Can't take me anywhere.

Well quite. I remember an ex-girlfriend telling me once while I was raging at Bagpuss that it was 'disturbing' and that I had 'serious problems' before leaving and never coming back. Dodged a bullet there I think.

That's the one. And after colluding with a Tory government and press to bring down a successful childrens charity with baseless accusations Newsnight this evening failed to even mention the court ruling today. Which is nothing short of disgraceful.
