If any of you have seen that film Children of Men, you probably noticed the horrible treatment this imaginary England of the future imposed on illegal immigrants. Well, it just might be the opposite here in reality, as word hits that deportees in detainment get some play time with Nintendo's latest console before being shipped off.

These detainees are currently shacked up at Colnbrook Immigration Removal Centre in Berkshire, where they enjoy a TV in every cell and some other amenities (we wonder if they're giving each other tats). This is, of course, questionable, as to whether these folk deserve such luxuries is obviously cause for debate. It's even being reported that some of the folks here are rapists and murderers.
