Philip Hollobone, the Tory MP for Kettering, is calling for a change in the law to stop Police from telling asylum seekers to find their own way to immigration centres.
Quite why this is a shock to an MP is a mystery to be honest. It’s been happening for years and if I remember rightly, somewhere in the region of 50% of asylum seekers are never seen again after being sent on their way.
Even if asylum seekers report to immigration as soon as they get off the banana boat/gravy train/airplane, they are processed and given an appointment at a specified immigration centre. They are then turfed out and half of them are never seen again.
There is a relatively cheap and simple solution to the problem – stick them on one of these buggers, 5 miles off the coast, and see them do a bunk:
The best place to moor a prison ship full of asylum seekers would be in the middle of the English Channel seeing as how the French are so keen on accidently letting them leave their country for ours. International law says that you must claim asylum in the first friendly country you set foot in. As we’re an island that means most asylum claims are going to be invalid and they should be deported back to the first friendly country they arrived in to make a valid claim for asylum.
