So seeking asylum is like going on Holiday.



A Welsh MP has told asylum seekers in Cardiff to stop 'moaning' about having to wear brightly coloured identification wristbands - because he had to do the same thing on his all-inclusive beach holiday.
Speaking on LBC Radio, he said: 

'What's the big deal? This gentleman has come over here to this country and has been welcomed by the generosity of the British taxpayers, put up in good accommodation and offered three square meals every day. 
'If having to wear a little red wristband to get meals and walk 10 minutes to a centre is the worst thing that's ever happened to him, and the other things that were happening to him are a lot less worse than that, then he doesn't have a valid asylum claim and shouldn't be here. 
'Last summer I was on holiday at Lake Balaton in Hungary with my family. The Retro Hotel expected us to wear wristbands when we ate our inclusive meals so people couldn't just walk in off the beach to claim a free meal.'  


A wristband scheme used by Clearsprings Ready Homes led to widespread criticism after it was revealed the company had handed out red wristbands to 200 asylum seekers staying at Lynx House on Newport Road in Cardiff so they could claim breakfast, lunch and dinner.


Wearers claimed they had been victimised as a result of being easily identified and spoke of their humiliation at having to wear them.
It appears Mr Davies seems to share the same opinion of the odious Katie Hopkins 
 If Britain is prepared to provide an all-inclusive resort service for asylum seekers, the least they can do is wear a bloody wristband

I went on an all-inclusive holiday once. Much to my surprise, it was great.

We knew exactly what we were paying before we left and didn't spend a penny whilst we were away.
And the kids loved it. All they had to do to get a free drink or hot dog in the middle of the day was show their little coloured band – and somehow they felt they were getting away with something.
They were quite proud of their red wristbands and wished life was more like that every day of their little livs.

A Bloody Holiday !

Cardiff South and Penarth MP Stephen Doughty is asking for an urgent investigation into a series of complaints made to him about the company over the past year.
He said he asked for an “urgent meeting” with the company’s chief executive and Home Office ministers.
Mr Doughty said he has received a series of letters from constituents about Clearsprings Ready Homes.


He said in one letter it was claimed that a woman and her child were made to share accommodation with another woman who had mental health issues and claimed she spat in the sink and deliberately antagonised the family.
Another letter raised concerns about claims of short notice evictions of families, including one woman who had fled rape and sexual violence.
The letter said the woman was settling in to a new community in Cardiff with children and receiving medical support, but was forced to leave after receiving an anonymous note telling her she would be relocated to Swansea within 24 hours.
Complaints were also made claiming women had baby equipment withheld or taken away because they did not comply with “house rules”. It was also alleged that children using Clearsprings services were not provided with “suitable food”.
 Mr Doughty said:
 “It’s not just on the issue of stigmatising vulnerable people fleeing persecution with red bands that Clearsprings and the Home Office have serious questions to answer.”
No one is asking for special treatment for people seeking sanctuary in Cardiff and Wales, but simply for them to be treated with the dignity and compassion we should all expect from our fellow human beings. “Often these are individuals, including many woman, babies and children, who are fleeing rape, violence and persecution. They need our support, not to be treated like second class humans.”
“I have had a worrying series of concerns raised over the past year about this company, which I have raised repeatedly with the Home Office – including allegations of short-notice evictions, intimidating and abusive behaviour, and people having their bedrooms entered without their consent.”

How in Earth can Katie Hopkins and  Davis Davies compare this with an inclusive Holiday.

I described Katie Hopkins as  odious   but David Davies is a MP and a member of the governing party in these Islands . Hopkins job is to deliberately  provocative  whilst we expect a lot more from Members of our legislature.

How can those who voted for him sleep at night Knowing they  elected such a heartless bastard.

  2. Not all countries eat what we do here and we all know how kids don't eat what they're not used to! This should all be considered and catered for as no doubt the company is being very well paid for the service they are providing.
