Did you stay up?

A very big thank you to clockwise from top left: Johnny Keenan, Edel Brady, Neil Curran, Kyle Phiri, Mark Malone, Olga Cronin, Mike McGrath Bryan and Lucky Nkambule, our panel on last night’s Broadsheet on the Telly.

Kyle and Lucky shared their experiences of living under the Direct Provision system and a plan was cooked up – on air – to hold an Open Day to meet and greet asylum seekers in centres around Ireland.

More on that as we get it.

The show can be viewed in its entirety above.

    Have you a reading difficulty? The man’s surname is given as Phiri (not that it matters a jot), so what is your actual point, other than the usual?

          Hello all, this is my fault. I left out the last names and posted unaware that Kyle and Lucky were happy to have their surnames included. Very sorry for the confusion.

    Lets stick to the thread folks.
    I think Johns idea for an ‘Open Day’ for citizens to meet the asylum seekers in these Provision Centres and see the conditions they are living in is a real good one.
    Some Sunday is probably best.

    It’s good business, this locking away of people. Someone is always profiting from it.

    How well the nuns did out of the slave labour of the women and the selling off of their babies in the mother and baby homes.

    Now we have these centres locking away people no one seems to care about in society.. ‘direct provision’ whatever the fupp that means.. how about we have some ‘indirect’ provision.

    How much are these centres costing us all over the country? 10 mill /20 million per annum per centre? Wouldn’t surprise me. Who owns them? And who are they connected to?

    How about we give that money directly to the asylum seekers, for further education, housing, etc. It’d probably cost us less..and you provide ‘indirect’ provision, like you do when you’re not enslaving people with your direct provision horsesh*t.

    A fupping lock out..in this day and age. And I don’t be on top of the news all the time, but why wasn’t this reported more?
    We need a celeb or two on the case.
    The centres need to go and these people need to be afforded some dignity.

    Oh and let the ar*seholes keep moving the ‘trouble makers’ around, they’ll run out of centres eventually and you get to cause trouble in each one.
    It’s some ar*seholery moving someone to a new town without them requesting it.
    We don’t tell people living in council housing n say Dublin..you’re off to Limerick or Cork in the morning..pack up. That’s outrageous treatment.
