Dungavel to close!!!

The years of campaigning to get Dungavel closed have finally paid off. Great news!  We'll need to keep a close eye on its replacement holding centre near Glasgow Airport, though.  Anything designed to make deportations quicker and easier has to be legally and morally dubious.  Reading between the lines, it looks like a cost-saving exercise by the Home Office rather than anything designed to make their treatment of asylum seekers any less oppressive.

Cause for celebration though, campaigning works.  Dungavel to close – one down, now close all the rest.
