Failed asylum seekers have been paid £66million since 2005 to leave Britain


Over the last decade nearly 45,000 migrants have been paid £1,500 each for leaving the country – setting them up for lavish lives back home.

Some have used the cash to set up businesses around the world, such as as pig farms, tobacco stalls and clothes shops.

And Ademola, a 36-year-old Nigerian, boasted that he blew his fee on clothes and a camera – and stayed in a hotel for a month.


It will encourage immigrants to try their luck here and go on a free flight with a grant

Jonathan Isaby of the Taxpayers' Alliance slammed the handouts, saying: "Taxpayers would be right to ask if it's the best use of money.

"It will encourage immigrants to take dangerous journeys across the world, try their luck here and go on a free flight with a grant.

"It should end."

The grant is part of the government's controversial Voluntary Assisted Return and Reintegration Programme. 

A Home Office spokesman said: "A limited number of people may need our assistance to leave.

"Helping them do so is significantly cheaper than enforcing their removal and saves the taxpayer money."
