How can any self respecting English man betray his people like that?

Easy: they don't have any self-respect (see: Theresa May) and/or they're not Englishmen (see: Sadiq Khan and his invading horde).

If you are referring to the customs people?

I interviewed to be a customs officer once - I do hold all of the proper credentials - that is, all of the proper credentials except one.

Customs officers are hired, for the most part, because they have asshole personalities. (Same is true for tax collectors, btw...,) This is deliberately done, but they don't tell you about that before the interview process - normal people need not apply, they don't want that. You are specifically selected for your lack of compassion, and your willingness to follow the strict rules and guidelines, without question. This attribute is considered far more important than intelligence - especially when you consider that intelligence might cause you to question those same rules.

Strangely enough - it makes sense to me - these people are the guard dogs on our borders - better for them to err on the side of caution. Given the choice to change the policy, I would probably leave it exactly as it is now.

Guard dogs? The British guard dogs are guarding islamic home invaders and attacking the owner.

Here in the US many police departments have upper limits on the IQs that are acceptable for candidates. They want you to enforce the law and do what you're told, and not think about it too much.

I would hire only racist white people and racist black people then I would force them to work together and put amphetamines in the coffee then leave the heat on 24/7

In all seriousness, I've long had the impression that "self-respect" is a different kind of thing in the UK. Can't really put my finger on anything specific, although that Brit who had moved to the US, but then last year suddenly decided to turn his guns in to the police because "it's just the right thing to do" seems an example of it. "I'm not that important as an individual", or something like that? Then again, we have some heavy corruption taking root in our culture too, so it's not just them.

Maybe it's something to do with them having a queen. They call her queen mother sometimes. So maybe they are more trusting of government than we are being ruled by regular corruptible people. I don't know, but it may have something to do with that.
