Parliament should be protecting us by protecting our borders, we are an island and because of this it should be an easy procedure. All passenger travel, flights, ferries, trains should be in lockdown whilst we are in Tier 5 . At this present time I know that passengers are entering airports that are clearly not for essential travel and are not being asked for a negative Covid test prior to travel to the UK.  There are no temperature checks being carried out or any rapid testing. Passengers are being asked to fill in location forms for COVID and that is all.  A lot of the flights are not carrying the full allocation of passengers which means that health checks would not be an insurmountable problem. We have been in some form of lockdown for many months and repatriation should not be a consideration. The people of the UK have been asked to stay indoors but yet we allow others to travel into and out of our ports. We need to close our borders to protect the people of our island or at the very least carry out rapid testing on the people entering. I understand about the economy taking a hit but surely a proper lockdown is now called for to stop the spread of this virus.
