Watching the Calais 'children' being bussed into the UK yesterday I couldn't help notice that half of them weren't going to see 20 again and wondered just how they had managed to convince Border Force numpties that they were under 17. And I don't think it had anything to do with the very normal and common-sensical uniformed lads and lasses of UKBF but with the social workers, a gullible, credulous and utterly irresponsible class of sociopaths responsible for horrendous levels of child and family misery and many child deaths every year in the UK.
I do have a solution. UKBF must replace their social workers with London bus drivers; these doughty guardians of TfL revenue can spot an overaged holder of a free-travel Oystercard quicker than a Buzzard spies a black shrew sunbathing on a white rock. They will certainly be able to weed out these fake kids.
