Police visit Essex Holiday Inn Express harboring asylum-seekers

Several males were observed climbing on the roof of an Essex Holiday Inn that housed asylum seekers, prompting the police to be summoned.

Officers arrived at the Holiday Inn Express in Colchester at 2.30pm yesterday after at least two men were seen behaving erratically
Yesterday around 2.30 p.m., officers arrived at the Holiday Inn Express in Colchester after at least two individuals were observed acting strangely.

Firefighters were also dispatched, but cops were able to convince the couple to come down to safety, as reported by Essex Police to MailOnline.

The announcement comes as the Home Office continues its frenzied search for more hotel rooms for asylum seekers to relieve strain at the overcrowded processing centre.

Robert Jenrick, minister of immigration, stated that the government was attempting to transfer people from crisis-stricken Manston, Kent, as swiftly as possible. Conservative backbenchers were outraged that prime places in their areas were being reserved in advance.

Stoke Central MP Jo Gideon said she had written to Suella Braverman, the home secretary, to oppose the use of the 88-room North Stafford Hotel for asylum seekers
David Davis (Haltemprice and Howden), Selaine Saxby (North Devon), Kate Kniveton (Burton), Jo Gideon (Stoke-on-Trent Central), Tom Hunt (Ipswich), and Katherine Fletcher (Ipswich) are among the Conservative MPs who have lodged complaints over the use of hotels in their respective constituencies (South Ribble).

Mr. Davis protested about the site of the four-star Humber View Hotel just outside Hull last week, calling it as “completely inappropriate.” Ms. Saxby stated that the choice to put asylum seekers in Ilfracombe was made because it was a “remote, seaside village with already stretched healthcare services.”

Ms. Gideon stated that she had written to the home secretary, Suella Braverman, in opposition to the usage of the 88-room North Stafford Hotel for asylum seekers. She told the Stoke Sentinel, “As we aim to elevate Stoke-on-Trent, the proposed position at the city’s train station entrance is particularly inappropriate.”

Katherine Fletcher (South Ribble) said she had 'serious concerns' about an attempt by the Home Office to use the 150-room Leyland hotel near the M6 due to its 'isolated location and lack of access to local transport links or amenities'
Mr. Hunt has joined forces with Ipswich Borough Council, which was given a temporary restraining order last week after the Home Office disclosed plans to keep 200 asylum seekers in the four-star Novotel hotel.

He told the Telegraph that he does not support illegal immigrants being housed in fancy hotels in the heart of the city. Businesses are highly concerned about this because it was frequently utilized for business purposes.

Ms. Fletcher had “severe concerns” regarding the Home Office’s plan to use the 150-room Leyland hotel near the M6 owing to its “isolated location and lack of access to local transportation or amenities.”

Tom Hunt (Ipswich) has joined forces with Ipswich Borough Council, which was granted an interim injunction last week after the Home Office revealed plans to house 200 asylum seekers in the four-star Novotel hotel
Sheila Oxtoby, the chief executive officer of the local council in Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, wrote to Home Office authorities after vacationers booked the entire “highly successful, sustainable hotel.” However, she was disregarded and 72 immigrants moved in. The Great Yarmouth Borough Council then pursued legal action and was granted a temporary injunction preventing a second hotel, the Embassy, from accepting additional asylum seekers.

Last week, it was revealed that the government spends about £7 million per day to lodge asylum seekers in hotels. Out of this sum, £5,6 million is spent on asylum seekers and £1,2 million is spent on hotels for Afghans.

According to reports, Mr. Jenrick stated last night that it was crucial to alleviate strain in Manston, where the ‘pressure cooker’ situation had led to fights breaking out.

David Davis complained last week about the use of the four-star Humber View Hotel just outside Hull, describing it as 'entirely in the wrong location'
In an interview with ITV’s Peston, he stated, ‘We’re acquiring more hotels in other regions of the country and transferring migrants from Manston to them as rapidly as possible. And after we’ve accomplished that, we’ll be able to restore Manston to the kind of compassionate, acceptable conditions that we all desire.’

Yesterday around 2.30 p.m., officers arrived at the Holiday Inn Express in Colchester after at least two individuals were observed acting strangely.

Jo Gideon, the representative for Stoke Central, stated that she had written to the home secretary, Suella Braverman, to oppose the use of the 88-room North Stafford Hotel for asylum seekers.

The lifeboat crew came back to find their bags packed and left in the foyer after taking part in a hovercraft training session on nearby mudflats. Pictured, people thought to be migrants
This chart, created using official Home Office statistics, depicts the amount of asylum applicants in each region requesting assistance from local governments.

A lifeboat crew on a training course was evicted from a hotel in the middle of their stay to make room for asylum seekers, while thousands of homeless migrants are housed in five-star hotels.

Tuesday, four members of the RNLI were evicted without warning from a three-star hotel in Hoylake, Merseyside.

After participating in a hovercraft training session on adjacent mudflats, they returned to find their packed bags left in the lobby.

A source stated, “The irony is astronomical.” These migrants were rescued in the English Channel by Border Patrol agents and RNLI volunteers. Now, some of these volunteers, who were literally undergoing training to better their ability to save lives at sea, have been evicted from their hotel by the exact people they are preparing to save.

The migrants were transported to the hotel from the crisis-stricken, overcrowded asylum processing center in Manston, Kent, which was more than 300 miles distant.

In addition, it has been revealed that four- and five-star hotels are fully booked for months to shelter thousands of refugees.

One volunteer and three staff members of the RNLI are now staying in a hotel eight miles away in Liverpool.

The motel in Hoylake is the most recent location reported as housing asylum seekers. According to sources, councillors were kept in the dark about the preparations.

The four-star Great Hallingbury Manor in Essex is sheltering fifty men from North Africa.

Today, the Home Secretary is traveling to Dover. Government risks legal action over circumstances at the Manston migrant processing center, which is believed to be sheltering at least twice as many individuals as it is designed to.

It is believed that the local authority was informed on Monday that the Home Office and government contractor Serco had commissioned the building with more than 50 rooms to shelter migrants.

The news source said that two of the secured hotels include the four-star Great Hallingbury Manor in Essex and the four-star The Dolphin Inn in St Ives.

More than 50 men from north Africa are staying at the site in Essex, which boasts a lake, picnic area, and barbecue, according to a staff member who spoke with The Sun.

They get access to the entire hotel and are provided with three meals per day. The staff member stated that some guests have grumbled about the cuisine because it is not what they are accustomed to.

They occupy their time by strolling or playing football. Language is an issue, although they say little. They have a tendency to keep to themselves.

They said that two individuals are “watching over” the gathering of males.

The Dolphin Inn in Cambridgeshire apparently houses Afghan and other international asylum seekers.

The Prime Minister stated that the government had acquired 4,500 additional hotel beds since September.

According to a member of the staff, Great Hallingbury Manor is fully booked for up to two months.

A member of staff at Great Hallingbury Manor stated that several of the guys have complained about the cuisine.

When refugees are placed into hotels paid for by the government, most of the hotel’s other amenities, such as pools and gyms, will be unavailable, according to a Home Office official.

It comes amid scenes of chaos around the country as immigration officials desperately seek housing for the thousands of refugees who cross the Channel each week.

Serco’s contract director for refugee accommodation services, Jenni Halliday, stated, ‘Due to considerable increases in the number of persons arriving in the United Kingdom, we had no choice but to temporarily house some asylum seekers in hotels. These hotels are an absolute last resort.

As a result of yesterday’s judgement by the High Court, women fleeing domestic violence could be the next to be moved elsewhere.

A judge lifted an order prohibiting a hotel from admitting asylum seekers.

The court heard that the Stoke-on-Trent City Council rejected the Home Office’s plan to reserve all 88 rooms at the historic North Stafford Hotel because it violated planning regulations and hindered the council from utilizing the hotel for needy people.

In September, the council wrote to the Home Office to raise its reservations with the scheme.

In addition, the hotel was utilized by the city council to house low-risk homeless families with children and women fleeing domestic abuse, who will now be relocated due to the Home Office’s request, according to the letter.

The judge, Mr. Justice Linden, refused to extend the injunction until a final hearing in December, which means the hotel can immediately be used to accommodate migrants.

The migrants were driven more than 300 miles to the hotel from the crisis-stricken, overcrowded Manston asylum processing facility in Kent.

In his decision, he stated, “I take into account the perspective of the residents of Stoke-on-Trent, but I hope they will recognize that the possible suffering of asylum seekers is no little matter when one considers their origins.”

The city was one of four local governments to take legal action against migrants’ block-booking of lodgings.

A council official stated, ‘We are clearly disappointed that our request for a continuation of the interim order prohibiting asylum seekers from using a local hotel as a hostel was denied.

The city has a long history of assisting asylum seekers, as it has served as an asylum dispersion area for three decades.

Listening to the BBC, one would believe that voters want our borders thrown open.

By Matt Goodwin

If you have listened to the BBC this week, you may have the notion that the majority of Americans want our borders to be opened.

Yesterday, on Radio 4’s flagship Today show, listeners heard an interview with a migrant who had been housed at the Manston processing centre in Kent, in which the reporter compared the living circumstances to that of a ‘prison camp.’

We cannot use the restroom or take a shower… We have no clothes,’ the man said, speaking of the hardships he has suffered.

Manston is without a doubt crumbling as a result of an avalanche of new recruits. However, this Today article lacked any sense of context. There is no mention of the effect that the roughly 40,000 asylum seekers who have crossed the English Channel this year have had on our already strained resources.

This week, another BBC political program referred to the rising migrant situation as a “cultural war,” as if the desire for controlled borders were a fabricated issue unworthy of serious consideration.

If you have listened to the BBC this week, you may have the sense that the majority of the country wants our borders thrown wide open.

However, the BBC’s virtue signalers have gotten it completely wrong. Sixty percent of respondents in a recent survey conducted by my company, People Polling, believe the government has lost control of Britain’s borders. In addition, the vast majority of British citizens oppose allowing individuals arriving on tiny boats to remain.

This demonstrates a deeper point. The British people voted overwhelmingly in 2016 to Regain Control of the dysfunctional immigration system.

Six years later, and with the daily hotel price for sheltering immigrants now over £6,800,000, many may wonder if anything has changed.

Obviously, the Establishment has never forgiven Brexiteers for the outcome of the vote, and it continues to oppose an independent Britain. Our political elite has continually overpromised and underdelivered.

The issue is that people will not tolerate it for much longer. When my company asked voters which politician they believed would best manage the catastrophe on our beaches, the most popular response was “none of them,” followed by Nigel Farage, the former leader of the Brexit Party who was the first to bring attention to the issue many years ago.

This should sound the alarm at No. 10 For if the Prime Minister and his Conservative government do not seize control of this crisis, if they do not ignore the shrill media – supported by the hard-Left on Twitter and the Establishment Blob – and listen to what voters up and down the country want, the Tories will be wiped out in the next election.

Yesterday, on Radio 4’s flagship Today show, listeners heard an interview with a migrant who had been housed at the Manston processing centre in Kent, in which the reporter compared the living circumstances to that of a ‘prison camp.’

So what is the answer?

If Rishi Sunak is serious about this, I would advise him to quickly prioritize the four items listed below.

First, he should attempt to negotiate a new agreement with the French to assist them in destroying the Albanian gangs in northern France that are mostly responsible for the illegal boat trade.

The French have broken more than fifty human smuggling rings so far this year. We must help them break more, but we must also hold them accountable when they fail to provide value for the tens of millions of pounds we have given them over the past few years.

Second, Sunak should amplify the current deterrent by reaching other accords in the style of Rwanda, making it clear that those who travel through other secure countries to reach the United Kingdom will be sent elsewhere for processing.

The Rwanda idea, conceived by former home secretary Priti Patel, has already been quashed, as many readers will recall. In June, an unnamed judge from the European Court of Human Rights approved a last-minute injunction grounding a plane that had been scheduled to transport Rwanda-bound asylum seekers, despite a UK court judgment that the flight may go.

This should sound the alarm at No. 10 For unless the Prime Minister and his Conservative government seize control of this crisis, unless they ignore the shrill media – supported by the hard-Left on Twitter and the Establishment Blob – and listen to what voters up and down the country want, the Tories will be wiped out in the next election.

This is why, thirdly, the Prime Minister must push back much harder against Europe’s continued looming presence. According to our survey, only 14% of the population believes Strasbourg judges should be permitted to overturn decisions issued by British courts over borders. Mr. Sunak must be willing to leave the ECHR entirely if required.

Fourthly, he must design a way for the quick repatriation of the fast increasing number of Albanians unlawfully entering the United Kingdom. Reports that immigration minister Robert Jenrick intends to ‘fast-track’ the expulsion of illegal immigrants are encouraging.

Remember that Albania is not a war-torn nation. It is a peaceful nation that is in talks to join the European Union and follows the same contemporary slavery rules as the United Kingdom.

The number of Albanians arriving in Britain by small boat has increased from 50 to 12,000 in the past two years, with 10,000 of them being single men of working age. Many of these individuals are not escaping conflict or persecution; rather, they are submitting false asylum requests.

This week, a Home Office official told parliament that while a startling 2% of Albania’s adult male population has arrived in the United Kingdom through tiny boats, many are put in contact with Albanian gangs involved in organized crime, drug smuggling, prostitution, and violence.

Many readers will recall that the former home secretary Priti Patel’s Rwanda plan has already been quashed.

After the catastrophic tenure of Liz Truss, Sunak will have a difficult time fending off Labour in the upcoming election. Retaining Boris Johnson’s majority in 2019 is almost inconceivable. However, he must attempt.

The British populace is not ignorant. They recognize the cons for what they are. More over sixty percent of respondents to our survey want Albanians who cross the English Channel to be placed on an airplane and sent home immediately.

The conversation on BBC and elsewhere will provide no such information. But as they continue their brutal hunt of “progressive” and “awake” individuals, the Prime Minister and his Home Secretary must remain steadfast.

A stern stance on this situation will be warmly appreciated by the majority of the British populace, who are generally warm-hearted, tolerant, and hospitable, but who now feel duped.

After the catastrophic tenure of Liz Truss, Sunak will have a difficult time fending off Labour in the upcoming election. Retaining Boris Johnson’s majority in 2019 is almost inconceivable. However, he must attempt.

Sir Keir Starmer has repeatedly demonstrated that he has no plan to address immigration. The PM must demonstrate his uniqueness.

He must find the courage to confront the rabble and deliver to the British people the controlled and secure national borders for which they are pleading. If he does not, they will demonstrate at the polls what they think of his weakness.
