The ousted chief of the UK Border Force Brodie Clark is currently giving evidence to the Home Affairs Select Committee — and is completely contradicting what Theresa May has told them:
“I introduced no additions to the Home Secretary’s trial – neither did I extend it or alter it in any way whatsoever … I did not enlarge, extend or redefine the scope in any way.”
Theresa May was apparently provided with a “two to three page update” each week on border trials. Conveniently enough, however, we won’t be finding out what she knew any time soon as it will be Damian Green who will take the heat in the Commons at 12:30pm, fielding urgent questions from Yvette Cooper.
Is he being lined up for the Beverley Hughes treatment?
