Go now, Charles Clarke

Charles ClarkeThe Conservatives, Liberal Democrats and even some Labour MPs are now calling for the Home Secretary to take some responsibility for the monstrous failures of the Home Office and resign:

The laxity of the government over foreign nationals in jails was also underlined by Sir David Ramsbotham, the chief inspector of prisons until 2001. He said he had revealed the general problem of the deportation of foreign nationals in prison as far back as 1996, and highlighted it in detail in his final annual report in 2001. Describing the Home Office as "a monster", he complained the department had no structure to deal with specific groups of prisoners, including foreign nationals.

Deportation Island: New Reality TV Show in the United Kingdom.

Prime Minister Tony Blair announced today his cabinet would be launching a new reality television show. The reality TV show entitled “Deportation Island” will mark the Prime Minister’s directorial debut and represents a direct public relations offensive to combat sliding approval ratings. A poll conducted by The Telegraph places the Prime Minister’s personal approval rating at just 36%.

Executive producers of “Deportation Island” include Home Secretary Charles Clarke and Lord Levy. Clarke was asked to become executive director following his extensive experience handling deportation issues. Only yesterday Clarke admitted that 1,023 foreign prisoners had been freed without being considered for deportation.

“Deportation Island” will be an unscripted quest series that will feature teams of foreign and British convicted criminals who will be provided with a series tasks, aimed at getting them deported from the United Kingdom. Find out more about "Deportation Island" at
