"CAMPS are the answer to our overcrowded prisons"
It goes on:
"The Sun today calls for disused army camps to be turned into jails to solve the UK'S prison crisis."
Sure enough, Rupert's Rag names a big long list of empty army camps, complete with the odd prison ship, presumably because the soldiers that once inhabited these locations have all died in the service of those that would throw the rest of us into camps, all ready to roll. Of course, this is nothing new on the New Labour Camp known as Prison Ship Britain.
DRAKELOW TUNNELS, WORCS: This 53-acre underground complex at Wolverley, near Kidderminster, is privately owned. There were plans for it to be a job training centre.
RAF NEATISHEAD, NORFOLK: The 40-acre former radar station, due to be sold by the MoD by the end of March 2007, was once set to be turned into a worm farm.
RAF LOCKING, SOMERSET: The 200-acre former Weston-super-Mare training school was closed in 1998 and still no decisions have been made about its future.
RAF COLTISHALL, NORFOLK: The 750-acre base will not close completely until later this year. But operational flying has ended after 66 years, draining £20million from the local economy.
HMS DAEDALUS, LEE-ON-SOLENT: The 483-acre Royal Naval Air Station contains a million square feet of buildings, some currently used by coastguards and police.
RAF ST MAWGAN, CORNWALL: The 840-acre airfield near Newquay was doomed when it was overlooked in 2005 as a future base for the Joint Combat Aircraft.
CULTYBRAGGAN CAMP, PERTHSHIRE: The 64-acre base is a former prisoner of war camp and SAS training centre. Its 1940s Nissen huts were in use until 2004.
RAF WEST RAYHAM, NORFOLK: The 684-acre site, which closed a decade ago, was recently acquired by a consortium in a multi-million pound deal, but no plans have been submitted.
RAF THROCKMORTON, WORCS: The 150-acre former airfield, which was owned by the MoD, was considered for use as an asylum seekers’ centre during 2002. It is still derelict.
RAF NEWTON, NOTTS: The Government failed to get permission to use this 560-acre site for an accommodation centre for asylum-seekers.
RAF SEALAND, FLINTSHIRE: The 400-acre base, a civil airfield until taken over in 1916, closed amid defence cost-cutting in 2004.
RAF BICESTER, OXON: The 580-acre site was the only one of four ex-bases given the go-ahead as a centre for asylum-seekers in 2004. Some £24million was spent on it until plans changed.
RAF YATESBURY, WILTS: The former home of a Radar and Wireless training school in Marlborough has lain derelict for more than 40 years.
CONNAUGHT BARRACKS, KENT: The last 85 soldiers left the 80 acre-site in April. The Parachute Regiment’s departure ended 1,000 years of Dover being a stronghold protecting Britain from invasion.
BROUGHTON MOOR, CUMBRIA: The vast 1,740-acre site was earmarked in 2004 as the venue for the UK’s first endurance sports village. But the £80million scheme has stalled.
RAF HULLAVINGTON, WILTS: This vast Chippenham site has not been fully operational since 1965 and is now only partly used by the Army for glider training.
Elsewhere in the Sun, brown-skinned Muslims appear as eager as the Jews of Nazi Germany were to queue up for racial profiling and be thrown into Labour Camps, for their own good, of course:
LILU is 33, prays five times a day and loves Britain. But the father of three, who works for The Sun as an editorial assistant, says he has never met any extremists preaching jihad in Britain’s mosques. He says:
“I don’t have a problem with profiling. I have never been stopped and searched by the police and I have never been stopped at an airport. I try to avoid trouble. But if they had a policy of extra searches on some Muslims I wouldn’t worry because I don’t have anything to hide.
Lilu, who goes by the nickname Naz, was born in Bangladesh and moved to England when he was eight. He lives in Southend, Essex, and is a Liverpool and England footie fan.
It looks like Lilu's job with the myopic Murdoch Media Empire is safe for at least another few weeks.
All together now, "Arbeit Macht Frei!"
