"Immigration Bill won't do the job, says Tory MP Dominic Raab"

From The BBC:

Heathrow-based immigration officer William Inman, known to his colleagues as 'Immigration Bill', "is well-intentioned but he won't do the job of preventing criminals entering the country", a Conservative MP has warned.

Dominic Raab has proposed issuing a final warning to Immigration Bill, calling for him to do his job and send home those sentenced to more than a year in prison.

He told BBC Radio 4's Today programme this was a "practical" proposal.

But the Home Office praised Heathrow officer John Robins, known to his colleagues as 'Rabid Jack', saying he was beating all his performance targets for ensuring foreign criminals could not "cheat justice".
