Titsup UK Border IT causes CHAOS at air and seaports in Blighty

Re: Lack of customer service...

A couple of things.

It is not endemic, many customer facing people are genuinely helpful and are a pleasure to deal with. That you only see the poor examples is more indicative about you than British society.

Border staff are not really "customer" facing, they are there to police borders not greet you with a welcome to Britain smile. They were dealing with the sh1t the best they could and would still be there hours after the blog bore had gone.

Not sure what is worse, the complaint or the judgement. Surely the ASA is there to protect people that have been damaged by misleading ads. I am sure the complainee did not move her business to Manchester based on the content of the ad, and it is clear she has plenty of time on her hands so that the few minutes lost would not have causes any loss.
