"They are presented as a crackdown on illegal immigration, but lawyers say they could be applied to anybody who has ever been outside the UK, even on holiday."

As this directly concerns me living abroad I wonder how they are going to tell? If I go home for two weeks in the summer next year, how are they going to know I´ve been abroad? I am not tanned as I work inside most of the time!

  1. Hi Sue

    Easy they scan your passport when you cross the border now. See my blog for details of the EU wide ID card system that is being set up by the back door (Spain has signed up as a founding member).

  2. Hi Mrs Smallprint. Yes I know, I just wondered if I were in a street say in London, how could someone pick me out as "having been abroad". I look like every other ordinary Englishwoman.

  3. I think the idea is they stop you in the street and say "have you ever been out of the country", you being honest say "yes", they then have the right to ask for your proof of identity - in other words they put you in a "lie or comply" situation (unless of course you really never have travelled abroad).
