    That is shambolic. Who runs that system anyway? Who is it that tries to send them back to the Ivory Coast without first checking they would be accepted?

    Children in detention centres? Is the cost proportionate to the aim pursued? If the BNP ever tried to run that expatriation scheme would our coffers run dry (£70,000 for these two asylum seekers alone!)?

    My point was more along the lines of, wherever the money comes from (in a budget sense) the use of that money for private jets is a bit obscene. But hey, if that's where the BNP would get that money from fair enough.

    The cost seems a bit excessive in the article anyway.
