'People are right to be angry' over border delays

People are right to feel angry that thanks to the Government's ineptitude and cuts of nearly 900 members of staff, queues at Heathrow have been far too long.

We need more than just words from the Prime Minister. The Government must get a grip or they will undermine our border security, our business reputation and the British tourism industry.
