Quotes

...It was an Italian rather than a Frenchman, Giuseppe di Lampedusa, who explained it best: "If you want things to stay as they are, things will have to change."
"Our activity today is ongoing with our partners who are committed and recognise that it is an issue that does not go away in a single operational action and requires a continued and consistent approach from all agencies and partners."
"I was briefed during the UKBA recruitment process that it would be challenging, so I went into it with my eyes wide open. On arrival, it was clear that the relationship between UKBA and the Home Office was strained. Also, different parts of the agency did not work well with each other. There had, by necessity, been a lot of piecemeal change over the years to meet new policy requirements, but no overall review of how all the teams within the system should work together."
"These were very serious crimes that showed a high degree of planning and criminal enterprise. We are grateful for the assistance of the UKUK Border Agency in helping to ensure the smooth transfer of Apskalns to Latvia."
