The 575 male (mostly Muslim) inmates – about half of which are convicted criminals awaiting deportation – are shunning fish and chips and shepherd’s pie and demanding a ‘culturally diverse’ menu reflecting their countries of origin, paid for by British taxpayers.
UK Express (h/t Terry D) Chefs have been told to make the menu more “culturally diverse” after Muslim illegal aliens blasted the traditional British dishes being served up. Detainees told prison inspectors they wanted food from their home countries rather then shepherd’s pie, fish and chips, soup and sandwiches.
Now inspectors at the Verne Immigration Removal Centre, in Portland, Dorset have agreed and are ordering a new ‘world menu’ be drawn up. The inspectors have also called for a “cultural kitchen” to be installed so inmates can cook their own favourite dishes before being put on a plane home.
Menu cards must be printed in a range of languages and comment books put in the canteen. Critics say the changes would take money from the over-stretched Prison Service budget.
Jonathan Isaby, of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said: “Do the authorities really feel they can justify this?” The Ministry of Justice said: “Centres are required to provide multi-choice menus to ensure all religious, cultural and medical needs are met. (Not their culinary preferences)
