Facilitate this!

Posted in The Job - General by 200

The Facilitated Returns Scheme is a government innovation started in October 2006 to persuade foreigners with no right to stay in the UK to return home.

Specifically, it aims to get convicted foreign criminals to leave the country. One might have thought that getting them deported after serving their sentence might be a simple case of transporting them from the prison gates to the airport, but not so. It seems that getting rid of convicted murderers, rapists & other criminals is rather problematic as some of the blighters just don’t go.

The scheme aims to bribe offenders to go home once they have served the part of their sentence after which a UK citizen would normally be released. It is designed to avoid lengthy & expensive legal battles against deportation & can result in inmates being given up to a £5,000 resettlement package  including £500 cash.

In 2008 1,350 foreign criminals were paid an average of £2,500 to leave the country. This was about 25% of the total amount of criminals ejected from the UK that year.

This scheme is morally acceptable to the government, that is unless it is proposed by a party such as the BNP, in which case paying foreigners to leave the country is morally repugnant & inherently racist.

The total amount spent in 2008 was some £3.4 million.

Meanwhile, the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire which commemorates the deaths of thousands of servicemen & women who have died since W.W.II, will fall into disrepair unless it can find £8 million.

The Future Foundations Appeal is trying to raise funds to sort out the memorial & asking the government to match any money raised.

I have a suggestion, the government pays all the money to fix the national memorial to our war dead & saves £3 million a year by not bribing criminals & just booting their arses out of the UK with the advice that should they desire to appeal the decision to repatriate them they should seek the assistance of a lawyer in their own country.

    Well said that man!

    Posted something very relevant to this thread recently on our pages.

    The prison population as of 20th November 2009 was 84,681, with a Useable Operational Capacity of 85,663, close to tipping point it seems.

    In the last ten years the number of foreign nationals in prison has doubled and now represents over 14%(11,855) of the total prison population in England and Wales. http://www.hmprisonservice.gov.uk

    Isn’t it time consideration was given to repatriating convicted foreign nationals to their country of origin? This not a race or culture issue. This is about economics and fairer use of the taxpayers money. The average cost per prisoner place in 2008-2009 was £31,106 x by 11,855 = taxpayer burden of £368,761,630!

    If the 11,855 places were available for UK convicted prisoners, is it too much of a stretch of the imagination that we might actually see an improvement in sentencing?

    We also posted recently an article based on the recent revelation, in the Evening Standard, by Andrew Neather, a former senior adviser to Tony Blair, Jack Straw and David Blunkett, about the Government’s political agenda to open up Britain’s immigration controls to mass immigration.

    Migrationwatch Chairman, Sir Andrew Green said, in The Daily Telgraph that “Now at least the truth is out, and it’s dynamite. Many have long suspected that mass immigration under Labour was not just a cock up but also a conspiracy. They were right.This Government has admitted three million immigrants for cynical political reasons concealed by dodgy economic camouflage.”

    That 14% of the prison population consists of foreign nationals, is a consequence of the Governments immigration strategy.

    What percentage of ethic minorities vote Labour? The Times says 80%

    Chris Mullin, a former minister, recalled in his memoirs that ministers had “barely touched the rackets that surrounded arranged marriages . . . terrified of the huge cry of ‘racism’ that would go up – then there is the added difficulty that at least 20 Labour seats, including Jack (Straw’s), depend on Asian votes”. (Taken from Mr Mullin’s book).

    With up to 80% of ethnic minorities voting Labour, it is obvious that the more immigrants who get the right to vote, the greater Labour’s electoral share. Perhaps Mullin has stumbled on a smoking gun.

    A site worth visiting for more information on this subject is http://www.migrationwatchuk.com/ which is chaired by Sir Andrew Green, a former Ambassador to Saudi Arabia. A reader might ask the question : Is it “racist” to apply limits only to non-EU citizens?
    Simply, the answer is No. The basis for this is not race. It you are a French or German citizen of whatever race, you have free access to Britain. Equally, if you are a non-EU citizen you do not have free access, whether or not you are white.

    As another blogger frequently says, you couldn’t make this up.

    As A measure of Labour’s hatred of law enforcement you only need look back to 1997. At that time we had an effective Immigration Service (possibly for the first time in living memory) a reasonably effective National (and Regional) crime squad and (I am prejudiced)a world class Customs Service.

    Now wwe have nothing.

    Here here 200. You’ve also got my vote for PM.

  5. MarkUK says:

    Yep, 200 for PM.

    I cannot understand the bribe. If you are a foreign national and commit a serious crime (i.e. you get imprisoned) then you have forfieted your priviledge to remain in the UK.

    This should trump assylum claims.

    Even the EU accepts that freedom of movement can be curtailed for convicted criminals.

    We’ve already had accounts of offenders being ‘lost’, deport them and call it ‘lost’ on the paperwork. Or ‘Lose’ them properly, there’s some bridges in Cumbria that will need new foundations due to the flooding, you can’t get more of a sign from God than that.

    I suggest that we repatriate foreign criminals by dint of throwing them out the back of a Hercules at 10,000′ over their country of origin. Or the North Atlantic, whichever is cheaper. The RAF can treat it as Navex. I feel that this should meet with approval? If any other country wishes to repatriate any of our scrotes, they can use any large body of water near by.

    Of course you silly people all of what you suggest is a grave infringement of these peoples ‘uman rights. Can’t do it. However ……….. given Mr Brown is so keen on PPI and PFI and the like I think we could solve this problem (and save humongus amounts of dosh) by outsourcing our prision services to say Thailand or Uzbekistan.
