Asylum seekers get free theatre tickets for Mother’s Day

Just when you were perhaps thinking it couldn't get any more ludicrous the arse tunnellers go one better. Asylum seekers are to get free theatre tickets on Mothers day. An event they are probably ignorant of and most certainly do not celebrate. Oh yes__ and your paying.

Asylum seekers are being treated to free days out at the theatre and taxpayers are footing the bill.

The handouts are to celebrate Mother’s Day on March 2, when London’s vibrant Young Vic Theatre will stage the play ‘Motherland’. Although tickets are available to the public at £10 each, the majority will be given free of charge to asylum seekers. Any proceeds from sales will go to a detention centre that runs a ‘friend finder’ service for immigrants in Bedfordshire. The play - involving real immigrants living in Britain - centres on the experiences of women and children trying to claim asylum in the UK.

John Mills, a taxidriver from Dartford in Kent, said: “It’s unbelievable. “Honest hard working men like me are getting squeezed out of our own country to satisfy the politically correct, it stinks.”

Mother-of-two Tracy Warren from Bexley, south London, said: “Why should they give out freebies to the asylum seekers. “They’re getting enough free as it is. “The fact of the matter is I couldn’t afford to take my family to the theatre, or they couldn’t even afford to take me as a gift for mother’s day so why shouldn’t we be given free tickets.”

"Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you." Matthew 7:6

Never fear, Sir. The regiment's snipers will be deployed on the rooftop opposite. Well, it'll be more of a challenge than the range.
