all these blood suckers like fazyard , bridgestock , trenthall , oceanview , peachport , ofm , maplestar , barlow , atlantic blue , bideau , james white & co , flodale , sidetracks , vesta hotels are sucking the life out of Ireland , these are the kind of companies that who would make a deal with the black and tans if they thought they could earn a few bob . They spit on Ireland . They have no shame at all sucking millions out of the irish taxpayer to accommodate people who statistics show are not even genuine refugees . The whole thing is a plantation .
#
from 1998 to 2013 inclusive Nigerians were the top nationality claiming asylum in Ireland . Nigeria is listed a 'safe country of origin' by the uk , there are no wars and on a Journey from Nigeria to Ireland you must pass at least 10 or more safe countries where you could claim asylum . Its deeply disturbing that we are opening new hotels around Ireland to accomodate people who are coming here under false pretences and even more disturbing that nobody wants to talk about this for fear of being branded the usual name calling
#
so basically we spent 1.2 billion over the past 19 years accommodating mostly Nigeria nationals even though there is no wars in that country . just wonderful . maybe they should call them Direct Plantation centres instead ?
#
sure thats mad , 1.2 Billion spent on housing asylum seekers even though there isn't even any wars in any of those places like albania , georgia or nigeria . whats going on . our homeless dying on the streets , people dying on trolleys and all this money being paid on this , feck , really shocked , dont want my taxes going to this .
