The surest way to increase the number of migrants...

This seems ridiculous...
The "Global Calais Scheme" is to be partly paid for by British taxpayers and will be offered to those sleeping rough around the French port as they try to board ferries and trains bound for England.

Under the scheme, migrants will be offered a plane ride home as well as resettlement assistance and retraining when they get there. The French government is also offering 2,000 euros (£1,724) in cash.

The plan was outlined on Monday by Pierre de Bousquet, who as state Prefect for the Pas-de-Calais, is the most powerful politician in the region.

He said the cash "will smooth their passage in their home country and enable each and every one of them to realise their ambitions. Organisations are present in their country of origin who will assure they're looked after.

"We're trying to open their eyes to the illusion of their wish to go to Great Britain. The United Kingdom is not the Eldorado they believe it to be.

"The solution that we advocate is voluntary repatriation. These people are deluded by the people smugglers whose have an interest in maintaining their illusions. The procedure of voluntary repatriation is not simply to buy an airline ticket for each person."

All genuine asylum cases would continue to be considered, Mr De Bousquet added.

The plans were attacked by the Conservatives. Chris Grayling, the Shadow Home Secretary, said: "Why on earth will offering people money just when they turn up in Calais stop more and more turning up?

"It will make the trafficking of people even more lucrative, and will simply be exploited by criminals.

I firmly believe governments should not be allowed to make up names for things that already exist. In this case, it's a bribe. Call it that. If you don't have the guts to do so, then maybe there's something wrong with what you're doing.
