      Either you love the ol’ passive aggressive in that or maybe do your own values get swayed like the wind that you update them with what you perceive as change in someone else’s…. shame that, really…

            Yup, it’s what I think every time I see an pro-refugee post, a repeal post, especially from bodger. He’s conveniently ignored trump and thrown poc, white and LGBT people under the bus for more of the same old white establishment, line their own pockets meatheads who advocate rolling back rights in a host of areas but then expects people to think he’s an ally? Nah, not in the slightest.

            Pfft indeed.

            After last Friday week I think it is pefectly reasonable to call it out. Our posts are making other people money after all

    They hardly got that photo from a previous anti-direct-provision march in Ireland did they? Area in photo doesn’t look familiar.

    €19.50 ain’t bad if you have everything paid for you already. I’m sure some of our under 25’s on their €100 per week would like to have that King of money left over each week.

    What are the breakdown of the costs for direct provision, what is the cost of each person accommodated
    in direct provision facilities…….?

    What’s wrong with direct provision? They get fed, they get educated, they get medical cards. It’s better than we do for a lot of our own. What’s the alternative? Just open the gates and let them flood in with no support or direction? Lock the gates completely and save asylum seekers the hassle of having to accept our assistance? Obviously the best solution is to make the asylum application process quicker and more efficient but that applies to every aspect of bureaucracy in this country and if we were capable of doing that we would have by now.

        I’d pay good money to see their faces as trump assembles his administration with elites and gears up to line his own pockets through corruption. and they thought Hilary was bad lol.

      I’ve no problem with direct provision in the short term. The problem is people have been there in the undeniably long term. I think most people are agreed that that is an issue.

    If Broadsheet would like to be proactive on this, then look at who does benefit from Direct provision.

    The landlords. More circles within circles…
