Did anyone watch the programme last night about the UK's immigration centres?
It was probably one of the most frightening, upsetting and appalling things I have seen on TV. Failed asylum seekers, and asylum seekers waiting for a decision as to whether they were to be removed are locked up with, and frequently terrorised by, dangerous foreign criminals. They have no idea how long they will be detained for and there were cases of people still there 2 years later.
Some of the staff - even at managerial level - were basically racist thugs and it is no wonder that the majority of detainees were suffering from severe depression and anxiety.
These centres, all of which I believe it was said are run by G4S which has been paid in excess of £1 million, are a disgrace to this country.
