Fury as UK Government forks out £80million on security guards at Calais


The Home Office is forking out a staggering £80million in British taxpayers’ cash to pay for 40 security guards to man chaotic ports in northern France in a desperate bid to halt illegal immigration.

    Some well connected to government rent seeker has hit the jackpot.

    Bet it wouldn’t cost half that to set up a staging post “somewhere in Africa” and start dumping them there at 1000 a week to find their own way home.

      Ammunition is far cheaper still.

    As the saying goes, ‘you can’t fix stupid’. I know we’re not a whole lot better, but just be thankful you don’t live in Europe.

      I thank the Gods every day; and to think, I wanted to live in Denmark. It was a much younger and stupider me. At least it is not so easy to cross the Ocean.

        I had similar aspirations in my youth. Not so attractive anymore is it?

    thats 500k per guard. for that kind of money you could get some automatic defense guns like in aliens.

    • Much more efficient.

        And you could make it revenew positive.

        The guns could be remotly controlled and set up so they only shoot into an arc covering the exit from the calias jungle. Now if you allowed people to run the guns for 10 minutes if they paid a set fee… well you’d repay set up costs quickly and have ongoing ammo costs paid as well.

    Why don’t the Brits make their country less attractive to foreign moochers like being less generous with welfare benefits?

    Look at all the poor, desperate women, children, and old people in that picture; it’s just tragic…
