The Heathrow queue crisis

YouGov has released on 9 May the result of survey on the response of the British public to the government’s handling of the queue crisis at Heathrow terminals. 68% Brits say the Government handled the Heathrow queue crisis badly (36% fairly badly, 32% very badly). However, the results also show that more people would blame the UK Border Agency than the Government. In fact, while a quarter of Britons would blame the Government on the whole for the queue crisis, over a third feels the UK Border Agency is to blame. This result is not surprising as the Government, and in particular the Home Office, has systematically used the UKBA as a scapegoat for its failures in relation to the governance of migration, as I argued in a previous post.
