If the Tories are serious about getting to grips with immigration, I suggest making anyone coming from the ME land in the frozen north. And make the plane taxi to the far end of the runway btw. Walking a mile across the tarmac in a storm of horizontal sleet would be enough to make all but the most determined desert-dweller turn on their heels, and re-board the plane returning to the warm, sandy land from which they came. Of course anyone who makes it to the terminal building would be welcomed with a nice cup of tea and a bacon roll. And they'd have to finish it before getting through to customs. If they get through that & get out of the building, I'm sure the powers that be could rope in some teuchter to take them down to Bradford in a tractor and bogie. Fit a snow plough in front and you're all sorted!
(And yes I'm joking - if anyone doesn't get it, try a sense of humour on for size, why don't you!)
