Well, yes, George, yes

During the first three months of the pandemic – from 1 January until lockdown on 23 March last year, 18 million people arrived in the UK from abroad. But only 273 of them were obliged to quarantine. By contrast, across the 12 months to March 2020, 23,075 people were thrown into immigration detention centres: prisons for people who have not been convicted of any crime but are suspected of entering – or remaining in – the country without the correct paperwork.

We do quite often stick people in prison before conviction:

1. Population. The prison population stood at 79,514 on 30 June 2020. The sentenced prison population stood at 67,352 (85% of the prison population); the remand prison population stood at 11,388 (14%) and the non-criminal prison population stood at 774 (1%).

It’s what we do with people suspected of a crime that we’re not sure will show up for their trial and or punishment.

  1. The government’s lax attitude to the Indian variant only exposes how aggressive it is to migrants who pose no threat

    Imagine the Guardianista bleating if the Government had banned travel to and from the Subcontinent?

    Oh and Georgie, all non-White immigration is a threat to the lives, liberties and well-being of the British people.

  2. We didn’t have travel restrictions or quarantine for covid19 until lockdown started. So these 273 people presumably came from Ebola hotspots or suchlike. Nothing to do with the WuFlu.

    “By contrast…” A guardian way of linking two unrelated data points.

  3. Georgie tries his hand at race bothering:

    Britain’s borders: wide open to Covid, slammed shut for people in need

    Except this is a fucking lie, isn’t it Georgie? Aside from the fact that Britain isn’t actually a doss house for people too pathetic to make a go of it in their own countries.

    Illegals have continued to swarm across the Channel, with the government waiting to whisk them to four star hotels. The Home Office is still boasting about setting up Afghan colonies in Scotland with our money. The predictably feeble, token efforts to deport the odd itinerant criminal are easily defeated by gangs of woke activists or woke judges and lawyers.

    I’m not worried that Dr Patel might have come back from Mumbai with a cough, but the child rape gangs – and pencil-necked “liberals” who enable child rape gangs – need to be crucified by lions.

  4. “23,075 people were thrown into immigration detention centres: prisons for people who have not been convicted of any crime but are suspected of entering – or remaining in – the country without the correct paperwork”.

    Absolutely disgraceful behaviour from the evil f*cking Tories. They should not have been allowed to remain here for one second longer than it takes to get them on the next flight to anywhere that is a long, long way away from here.

  5. @Addolff..

    Too bloody true! And as for “not being convicted of any crime… etc” – if they had the correct paperwork they wouldn’t end up in detention. The fact that they are so doing is prima facie evidence that they are up to no good. IMHO.

  6. ’…but the child rape gangs – and pencil-necked “liberals” who enable child rape gangs – need to be crucified by lions.’

    As do the cowardly bastards in Police Scotland who let detained illegals go to pacify a mob, while bleating about Rangers fans celebrating…

  7. Who are the non-criminal 774? Babies with convicted mummies? Tourists? (how much does a week in Wormwood Scrubs cost?)

  8. Also, it appears that allowing 14,600,000 foreign nationals (legally, we’re not including the ones coming via container into Felixstowe or lilo from Boulogne) into the UK between Jan 2020 -Jan 31st 2021 (ONS stats – UK arrivals) does not increase the risk of covid but allowing 31 mourners to attend a funeral would.

  9. The hotspots for the ‘Indian variant’ of Covid, include Blackburn, Bolton and Bedford. Could there be any reason why their populations might be more susceptible? Bueller? Anyone?

  10. The Indian variant where a sample of 3,000 healthcare workers in India who had been vaccinated found 0.06% hospitalisation rate and no deaths.
    Seems vaccine is effective so why all the fuss, vaccine was never meant to stop it totally but as long as we aren’t flooding the hospitals who cares

  11. Instant deportation for illegals does sound like the way to go.

    Except of course that the countries who’d got rid of them wouldn’t take them back.
