Yesterday the BNP leader, Nick Griffin, suggested boats carrying illegal immigrants between North Africa and Europe should be sunk.
Pressed on what should happen to those on board, he said: “Throw them a life raft and they can go back to Libya”.
Today the Labour government moves ever closer to the BNP agenda with this latest anti-immigration plan. UK plans to build jails in Nigeria to house 400 Nigerian UK prisoners.
British taxpayers are to provide £1million for a comfortable jail in Nigeria to take convicts whose crimes were committed in the UK.
The prison would house 400 Nigerian inmates incarcerated in our own packed prisons who cannot be forcibly sent home to complete their punishments.
Jails there are considered so rough that any prisoner the UK tried to deport could oppose their removal on human rights grounds.
