18 Africans in a house?

By Thumper 2 October 2007 54

The SMH is reporting that eighteen Sudanese refugees are believed to be sharing a two-bedroom house in Canberra.

Marion Le, from the Independent Council for Refugee Advocacy, revealed the case after Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews said there was evidence African refugees were having trouble settling into Australia.

Eighteen Sudanese crammed into a small house is not acceptable.

“I’m sorry, Evil. I am a bad man. A bad, horrible man.”

It’s alright: just blame the devil. 😉

Hey, that’s not a very nice thing to say!

Oh mr evil…you truly are a wan- I mean evil.

No, actually, you’re just a toss.

“Why take the time to comment?”

Because I had nothing better to do but bait some lefties. 😉

Andy – apologies, my comments were based around the general tone of comments – I should really stop making sweeping generalisations 🙂

“Not racism: frankly just don’t care!”

Why take the time to comment?

“Indeed. Just label anyone who questions the PC dogma as racist.”


Just call someone who disagrees ‘numb nuts”

la mente torbida – my comment has nothing to do with the race, age, religion or sex of the people in question.
if there was 18 people of any sort, crammed into a 2 bedroom house, i’d expect the PM to kick them out.

el, as a landlord, that comment warms my heart!

Maybe they required the combined income of 18 people to rent a place in Canberra?

18 Africans in a house? Why does this come as a shock to so many? I’ve been under the impression for years that that was the norm.

What if its one family. mum dad and their 16 kids. You couldn’t split them up. My wife teaches many sudanese refugees and they think living in these conditions is bloody luxury and their family, or what’s left of it, are all together.

Move them into the Lodge – Howard isn’t likely to use it or notice.
