Reply To: UK Border Force uniforms

Back to Forum


Just wanted to gauge people’s opinions on the new uniforms….

Arriving into Edinburgh last week, I was slightly taken aback when I entered immigration.

If I didn’t know I had landed in Scotland, I would I have assumed I had just landed in a 1970’s Cold War Eastern European airport……

And it got me wondering why the Home Office opted for a look that, is so is more suited to a Balkan Paramilitary Brigade, than to people who are supposed to represent a Western democratic country…….. Is this really the first impression we want to create as we welcome tourists and businessmen into the UK ?
