£6 Million a DAY Asylum Hotel Bill!
The Tories are making another push to use their manufactured 'asylum crisis' as the excuse to bring multi-cultural 'diversity' to another traditional rural area. This time, people in north Essex are the target, but locals are urging ministers to abandon plans to accommodate 1,500 male asylum seekers at a former RAF base on their doorsteps.
The group say that MDP Wethersfield, near Braintree, has been earmarked by the Home Office for use as an asylum accommodation centre.
The Home Office refused to confirm or deny these reports. It is costing the government almost £6m a day to accommodate about 45,000 asylum seekers in hotels. A report from the international development select committee on Thursday found that as much as a third of the overseas aid budget is being spent on accommodating asylum seekers in the UK.
The Home Office has also published details of a £70m contract to house asylum seekers in accommodation centres in an attempt to end hotel use.
Last August the Home Office abandoned plans to establish an asylum seeker accommodation centre at an RAF base in Linton-on-Ouse in a rural part of North Yorkshire after mass opposition to the plans. Campaigners who support asylum seekers, and also those who do not, argued that the isolated rural site close to a small village was an unsuitable location for such a centre.
People living close to Wethersfield airbase say very similar issues apply. They believe the 325-hectare (800-acre) site is unsuitable as it is extremely rural, predominantly farmland with small villages and hamlets widely dispersed across a large area. It is a two-mile walk to reach the nearest village, with an infrequent bus service from the village to the nearest town. The site was originally a second world war RAF base and then a US air force base during the cold war.
The truth is that the Linton-on-Ouse plan was rejected because it would have brought the multicult and all its 'benefits' to a middle class area - and wrecked the Tories' already slim election chances even there. 'Diversity' is something for us peasants and serfs to 'enjoy', it's not for the posh.....
