While I have your attention, I was just wondering whatever happened to…Bob Geldof’s refugees?
Remember when there was wall-to-wall coverage of the refugee crisis and Saint Bob said he would put a few up (I think it was four) families in his country pad somewhere. Many said that the refugees had suffered enough.
Others said that this was pie in the sky and never going to happen. So I am left wondering did they make it, these lucky refugees, to Bob’s place? Something tells me they will not be getting a personal rendition of Do They Know It’s Christmas, at chez Bob this Yuletide, but I could be wrong. Perhaps it will be eggnog all round.
Nicola Sturgeon also offered to double bunk with a few refugees. In a similar vein, are there any pics of this charitable offering? Or perhaps this was just an off the cuff statement made by a politician in the grip of national hysteria?
But do let me know if there are some selfies of Syrians with their feet up on Nicola’s couch.
I suspect we need a more realistic, sustainable solution to this immigration crisis than a few immigrants Airbnb-ing with celebs and politicians.
