Very generous Campaign. Helping the illegal aliens return home. Too bad our COuntry won't follow suit.
Instead of spending billions housing them in Prisons and on welfare.

Australia: Illegal Aliens Not Welcome!!!! 07-28-13
Hardline immigration policy may be toughest in Western world
Last week, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd announced that all asylum seekers who arrive in Australia by boat will be sent to Papua New Guinea for processing and resettlement and none will be allowed to stay in the country.

I'm really opposed to these signs. They're inappropriate. They are just a Tory attempt at being populist.

I too hate illegal immigration but this is the wrong way to go about things. There are some very unfortunate people who are illegally in the UK and are being exploited. There are people from countries such as China who thought they were going to the UK legally. They applied to an 'agency' which turns out to be a gang. Then the gang will take their money and passport away from them, then the poor immigrant will spend 2-3 months in the back of a wagon in horrible conditions on their way to the UK. Then once they're in the UK, they're being used as slave labour 18 hours a day every day. Do these "Go Home Or Face Arrest" signs apply to these 'illegal immigrants' who are trapped here in the UK and are being used as forced labour?

The gangs should be prosecuted with the full weight of the law and each immigrant's case taken on merit like all the other immigrants.

The UK is a real p*ssy complaint about illegal immigrants, you don't here America complaining about immigrants from Cuba or Iraq, so why is the UK complaining about Eastern Europeans. Don't forgot the UK helped build the Berlin wall therefore partially responsible for the poor state of Eastern Europe, hence you will have immigrants, get over it.

Get out...why should these people have a right to stay here? They are bloody illegal and our country is over populated and under resourced as it is, common sense must prevail. Too much immigration here for too many years, result...a multicultural mess where ENGLISH PEOPLE are marginalised in their own land.

Britain is victim of its popularity.
Because we are a free and prosperous society that is tolerant and open-minded, we attract people who look for these values.
Once we have preached the world how good, magnanimous, fair, successful we are, we just cannot complain when people come to find out: that's just the way advertise itself!!

Instead of blaming the people that instead you should be asking why are they immigrating to the UK. I agree they should leave the UK but everything in Eastern Europe and Africa (where most of these illegal immigrants come from) that is currently owned by British enterprises should be returned back to the people of Africa and Eastern Europe.

Its more than just that, Britain's prosperity comes largely at the expense of others mostly its former colonies.

They do not respect our laws and enter our country illegally, and the hyper-sensitive hippie brigade is worried about hurting their feelings?! Those adverts are much more civilly worded than if I would have written them...

So all British companies pull out of the commonwealth countries, what happens?

Starving, workless ex employees and their families,

British firms criticised for leaving the natives to fend for themselves,

British aid money drying up.

You're right, we should pull out.

Why what's the difference, they are starving now and liven in squatter and are exploited by the British firms (amongst others), paid very little hence they think they will have a better life in the UK, but the Brits are complaining about them being in the UK instead of asking why they are in the UK.
