That's not what the programme was about.FutureTaoiseach said:More progress needs to be made though. The interviews with the asylum-seekers seemed not to sufficiently delv into whether the claims by the seekers were true or not.
A cliche isn't a sound basis for public policy.I recognise people from poor countries have a heard life but we charity begins at home.
He's Peter O'Mahony from the Irish Refugee Council. He was on Primetime, and he had a vaguely nasal voice. Hence the hilarity above.joemomma said:Forgive my ignorance, but who is the vaguely familiar chap pictured above being compared to a kazoo?
It should have been part of the general discussion on asylum. The program revealed just 1% of asylum-seekers are getting deported. Over 1 Billion has been spend on the seekers in the last 3 years and we are entitled to question the wisdom and necessity of spending money on people that have lied to us to get the money. Hence the truth or otherwise of their claims is fair game for a program to investigate.That's not what the programme was about.
The saying has survived this long because it is true.A cliche isn't a sound basis for public policy.
Yes, it's fair game for a programme to investigate. However, that doesn't mean that every single programme about the asylum system has to be about that. Especially given that the main thrust of the programme was about those who have applied for leave to remain on humanitarian or other grounds, having already been rejected by the asylum system.FutureTaoiseach said:Hence the truth or otherwise of their claims is fair game for a program to investigate.
So that you won't question their character?I would argue that a false claim for asylum is sufficient grounds to nullify any other consideration, on simple the grounds of questionable character.
I am beginning to wonder why anyone should bother come here legally.
I wonder what has happened to those who are now here for 11 years since you posted?The program revealed just 1% of asylum-seekers are getting deported.
That was 1 billion spent 11 years ago.Over 1 Billion has been spend on the seekers in the last 3 years and we are entitled to question the wisdom and necessity of spending money on people that have lied to us to get the money.
