1. Dear Robbie, I regret to say that under the Terrorism laws, it is perfectly legal for the Uk Border Police to demand your passport from you and to take it off you. This power is given to them under the Thirteen Schedule to the Terrorism Act. However, you should ask for it back and if it is not given back within a reasonable time, then you should take court proceedings to have its removal judicially reviewed.
