Face of the day

Australia’s Political commentator Andrew Bolt

Today’s face of the day, Australian Political commentator Andrew Bolt, has this to say about the current Refugee crisis.

Almost all the media commentary on the invasion of Europe so far overlooks a critical point.

The illegal immigrants in no way are “refugees”. Even those fleeing, say, Syria, were in relative safety once they’d crossed the border into Turkey, which, incidentally, is a country sharing the Muslim faith of most Syrians.

But since then, the immigrants have moved to Greece, then Macedonia and then Serbia to reach Hungary. Even then the vast majority want to move on – through Austria or the Czech Republic to their ultimate goal, Germany, the richest of all the countries on this trek.

I don’t blame them, of course, but nor do I blame Germany for saying it does not have a responsibility to accept these hundreds of thousands of people crossing its borders.

How to put out a boat fire the Kiwi way

The About details on the video state:

Lake Lyndon in New Zealand.

The captain of the boat tried to start it after it died in the middle of the lake and it caught fire so he jumped ship and watch it burn slowly. No one could really do anything about it as it had two big tanks of gas on board until a sprint boat SAVED THE DAY!

Legend, give that man a DB.
