Originally Posted By: Daily Mail
The Home Office is using 400,000 of taxpayers' money to help pay for a fly-on-the-wall TV series promoting the work of immigration staff.

The cash will be spent on Sky's eight-part show Border Force, which focuses on the UK Border Agency and its war on illegal immigrants.

Opposition MPs last night lambasted the decision to dip into public funds to fund the series, saying it was nothing short of propaganda.

They accused the Government of misusing Home Office cash which would be better spent employing more border patrol staff.

Most viewers will not even be able to watch the programme as it will be shown on the subscriber channel Sky One rather than terrestrial TV.

Quote:
The Government has signed a socalled "advertiser-funded" deal with Sky, which will see it meet the costs of developing and making the programme.

In return for its 400,000, the Government will receive valuable exposure for the work it is doing in policing Britain's borders.

The programme makers will have exclusive access to the UK Border Agency, which was pilloried as soon as it was unveiled earlier this year.

Because of a budget shortfall, it was unable to search for illegal immigrants at weekends. And the 25,000-strong force, made up of ex-Customs, immigration and UK visa staff, was not even given its own uniform as officials wrangled over the design.

Absolutely disgusting; remember this the next time you fill up you're car, where you're tax is going!!

For 400k they could have issued the border police with massive guns to shoot the immigrants!!

FFS 200 years ago Gordon Brown would have been hung for less!!!

Ive just watched some of this series that I found on the Sky+, and to be quite frank, it was crap anyway. I was recording it on a series link, but ran out of space and deleted the first few, glad I did now.

It's still shown on Sky2 and Sky3 from time to time iirc.

Well, we now know what the Immigration Staff are doing, ferrying them in on their shift transport. You couldn't make it up could you?
