Why are we so slow at kicking out foreign criminals?
The cost to us as taxpayers is fantastic.
The average cost to you of keeping a category C prisoner is a whopping £24,000 a year. However the government has now admitted that hundreds of foreigners are being kept in special jails at even more expense to us law abiding folk. There are 154 foreign criminals in Bullwood at a cost of £40,478 a year each and another 284 in Canterbury at a cost of £38,610. Bloody Hell!!
This is more than most of us earn. And to make matters worse I cannot believe these bods have paid any tax on their ill gotten gains. But why should they bother to pay tax when we will pay their share as well as our own? It would be silly really.
Our beloved leader Gordon Brown has pledged to deport all foreign criminals. So where is the boat to put them on?
While these people have a jail of their own our British criminals are being let out early because there is not enough space for them!
1 in 7 of the prison population is foreign (a total of 11,200).This is up from 3,446 in 1993. If these were not here there would be enough room for our bunch with no overcrowding.
Come on Gordon we are waiting.
