#1
Sorry if its been said before somewhere else!

I heard this on BFBS on the way into work????

Because our prisons are to full the goberment is going to offer every foreign prisoner £3000 to go home :?

What the hell are they on about, haven’t they heard of deportation? Commit a crime deport them to their own country. Save our taxes! :twisted:

I hope to the high heavens this is just somebody that has misinterpreted a quote before giving it up for broadcast. :evil:

£3k to go home still leaves change after you've bigged it up back in the ghetto that spawned you, to come back just in time to vote Labour!
 
#4
I wouldn't even give them a rat pack, how about a fuckin good kick *********** before slinging them on the boat home!

If we had rules like deportation for foreign law breakers, do you think immigration would be as high as it is???

A “bribe” to persuade foreign prisoners to leave Britain has been more than tripled to £3,000 per offender by the Government as part of its drive to tackle prison overcrowding.

The enhanced incentive is being offered until the end of next month as the Prison Service struggles with a record jail population.

The revised package was introduced by the Home Office without any publicity or formal announcement last month after prison numbers had soared by more than 2,000 in six weeks.

It is the second time in three months that ministers have quietly increased the incentives package. In November they increased the standard £800 package to £1,500 for a limited period.

Foreign criminals from outside the European Economic Area are able to apply for help with education, training, housing and resettlement of up to £3,000 until the end of April. There are an estimated 11,000 prisoners from outside the UK in jails in England and Wales.

Under the scheme announced by John Reid, when he was Home Secretary in 2006, foreign prisoners are eligible for the £800 reintegration package. In addition all foreign prisoners receive £46 discharge grant on leaving jail. British prisoners are eligible for the discharge grant but not the reintegration package.

Lin Homer, the chief executive of the Border and Immigration Agency, said: “We strongly believe foreign lawbreakers should be sent home at the earliest opportunity. Every day that we can get these individuals out of the country early saves our taxpayers over £100 a night. That’s why we want to use the facilitated returns scheme to get as many foreign criminals out of the UK as possible by extending last year’s scheme to last until April.”

Terry Fullerton, chairman of the Prison Officers’ Association at Holme House jail in Teesside, said: “We had to go to their cells and offer them £3,000 if they were prepared to be repatriated to their own country. That is four times more than the annual pay award we received this year. That sticks in the throat of every prison officer.

“The problem is that we have more prisoners to lock up than we have spaces. We are constantly amazed at the ridiculous things the authorities come out with to try to reduce the numbers in prisons.”

The Home Office defended the decision not to announce publicly the tripling in the value of the package available to foreign offenders. The department said that it was not a new scheme but a time-limited enhancement of a programme that was already up and running and had been successful.

A spokesman was unable to explain why the amount on offer had been tripled if the original scheme and the time-limited increase to £1,500 last year had been a success.

A total of 840 of the 4,200 foreign prisoners deported last year returned home under the scheme. A total of 280 went under the enhanced £1,500 package offered between November and January.

The Home Office said that the £3,000 package would make it easier to return foreign criminals quickly to their home countries. It compared the cost of the package with the estimated cost of £11,000 to make an enforced removal from Britain.

Reintegration assistance is provided in kind when prisoners return to their country of origin. It includes education, accommodation and medical care for those who are eligible.

A Home Office statement said: “We believe this will increase the number of returns we can achieve and also help ensure they occur at an earlier stage in the process.

“We will fingerprint prisoners, exclude them from the country and place them on watch lists to prevent them from returning to the UK after they are removed.”

AFAIK deportation only works if the receiving country is prepared to take them. £3000 of our money turns these scum into volunteers, so there are no legal complications, and we boot them out for less than their legal aid fees.

A good target for our bile is probably Tony Bliar's wife and the rest of her legal practice. I haven't bothered to research that, it just feels right.

Unbelievable! Just another example of this Government being too 'softly softly' on these scumbags. Make them do hard time then boot em back to whatever sh*thole they came from. Im not a racist Im all for immigration it was how this country was formed but if people want to come to our country and offend then dont give them any money for it AAAGGHHHH! :censored:

I'm not sure how they arrive at that figue, surely if some Albanian fcukwit, for example, has broken the law and given a prison sentence it doesn't cost 11 grand for two coppers to take him to Heathrow and put him on a 500 quid BA flight to Albania, or am I missing something?

As for their home country not accepting them, bollox thats where they come from and thats where they're being returned to. Just like when someone is refused entry they are returned to where they came from.

Err, why cant they be sent home, them being responsible for thier own situation and all that?
 
#13
This in not new and it has been proven that they get their 3k and come back for more, why, cos they didn't take the claimants finger prints!

So what's wrong with mad Mitch's idea, helicopter and 3000', they don't come back again .. .. :wink:

A thought on this, and prison over-crowding in general, how about a private sector initiative to outsource the prison system. Since the fall of the commies in Russia there is all that Gulag space going unused. Send them there, and see how many re-offend

And the German's have a contact with Russia to sent their CRIM's to Russia, now that' what I call 'Outsourcing'!

I think one of the problems is that the first thing they ditch is a passport(if they ever had one), no passport = no admittance to their own country sort of bollox. I remember reading this years ago.

Having worked for immigration in the past I believe the £11k figure includes all the legal costs of getting someone to the deportation stage, bearing in mind these fatherless gits take full advantage of every legal stage they can. Additionally they are not put on a plane, they are escorted all the way back as the airlines won't take them without escort in case they kick off.

If the scumbag takes the £3k option then there is no legal probs and they wont be able to change their mind at the last minute, most judges would simply reject them if they did.

Briefly peeking over the top to the other side of the hill, if they are costing 100quid a night to keep locked up then 3000quid is equivilent to 30 days costs to keep them. I think that is where they are coming from and the magic little cost saving opportunity they percieve.

HOWEVER, that said I absolute agree that they should just be turfed out straight away back to where they came from, with maybe at most a horror bag full of sandwiches and panda pops to see them through the journey. Zero tolerance, you get caught, you are a foreigner, you get sent back. If you cant prove where you are from then a ticket gets picked out of a tombola (except all the tickets say Chad or Mali :)) ).
In fact to take the scheme one step further then DNA test all criminals and any that come up with Viking / Roman / Anglo Saxon / Celtic etc... DNA get sent to Norway / Italy / Germany / Ireland etc... just to make sure. Problem solved. Vote me for home secretary.
I'm not racist, anybody of any creed or colour who adds value and respects the host country is more than welcome. Scum should be given no incentives to either come, stay or leave. They get caught, they are out the door.
