This report details the significant failures of the UK Border Agency and the UK Border Force under the guidance of the current Home Secretary, Theresa May. Mrs May now in the running to be Leader of the Conservative Party – against Andrea Leadsom – which would also result in one of the two women becoming Prime Minister. May is running on a ticket of competence due to her long-lasting role as Home Secretary.
