GUEST,David Hannam BS: Are Muslims Rubbish? (373* d) RE: BS: Are Muslims Rubbish? 09 Aug 05

A sensible question to your goodself if I may, I suspect you know more about this than I do. There was actually 2000 kurdish refugees sent to Hull, almost overnight. They are all young men, where are all the old people, women, kids etc? Did they not make it out of Iraq? Me and 'er indoors' have often wondered.

A good question. To be truthul flamenco, i don't know where the children and women are either.

We all know the human-trafficking industry is big. Why there is a disproportionate number of young men i am not sure.

It is a sad case when women and children are left to survive back home in a war-torn state, and the older men escape to Britain.

Of course, Hull has suffered for this too. We have all seen the line in the Hull Daily Mail, 'Police are looking for a man of Eastern European appearance...", this is simply code word for asylum seekers. If it is racist to tell the truth, then so be it, but women have been subjected to sexual abuse, people have been stabbed and murdered.

Media bias is no suprise, a local Hul journalist once told me it was impossible for the mail to report on asylum seekers in a truthful light. The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) recently started a cmapaign of support for asylum seekers, and my journalist friend informed me that the NUJ has clout. Anyone who does not tow-line, is in for a hard time.

For info on what asylum seekers do recieve, please refer to the 2001 Tenancy agreement, which detailed exactly in LAW what asylum seekers are entitled to.
