No added gravitas April 29, 2019

For at least one candidate in the European Elections, to judge from this report:

Independent candidate Peter Casey has been criticised for comments made in a newspaper in which he said there were “freeloaders” in the direct provision system, who he said should be “put back on the plane”.

During a debate on RTÉ’s The Week in Politics, Mr Casey said that “genuine refugees” should be given a “warm Irish welcome” and ruled out joining up with Nigel Farage or any other right wing group if elected to the European Parliament.

I rarely say this, but good to see the FF candidate amongst others coming out immediately against this sort of rhetoric.
