Genuine refugees don’t act like this

Genuine refugees are fleeing war or starvation. Any country that gives them safe haven and citizenship and a chance to build a life for themselves would be the answer to a genuine refugee’s prayers.

Instead in Europe, we see refugees complaining about the poor internet and the size of their free apartment and in PNG they are holding up signs that show that far from being genuine refugees they are economic migrants who are country shopping.

What a bloody cheek. Perhaps they should ask their friendly neighbourhood smuggler who took their money and helped them keep their iphones dry on the journey over for their money back?
