      Apparently smugglers are not involved with crossings in anyways. They designate one of the refugees to steer the boat. In exchange the said refugeee gets a free passage. That way they dont risk being caught by the authorities or just die.

      a Syrian kurd safe in Turkey? they might not have thought that especially after the Turkish airforce started bombing kurdish targets recently.

        How is his comment racist, please explain? Or is the bandwagon moving too fast for you to actually have any valid opinions of your own, apart from name calling.

      Hi bisted, sorry to bother you but I don’t understand your comment there. Could you elaborate please? Goal aren’t a good charity for some reason?

        Hi Rory…sorry for being sounding oblique but let me try to be more direct. The charity sector in Ireland, in my opinion, is a business. It is in the business of eliciting donations, ostensibly for a good cause, but fundraising is it’s goal. The cause is incidental. Charities in Ireland are not a means to an end, they are an end in themselves. The CEOs of these organisations pay themselves extavagantly and often use their position as advocacy for steering government money into their groups to further feather their own nests.
        I have long suffered compassion fatique and been cynical of the methods employed by the charidees but lately I see two brilliant organisations having their reputations sullied by the Irish arms of their operations.

    Fupping goal? There’s a whole rake of performances by gillan that makes me cringe, but I think this takes the biscuit.

      Is there a “bomb by date” on bombs or are they like yesterdays cell phones, not the sort of thing you would want hanging underneath the aeroplane, if you don’t want to be laughed at?
