Looks like this one is keep going, a.minister is now weighing in on it. Definitely election season infull swing at the moment.

If they get a hand on it they could limit the rise of more extreme views.

Michael Ring is correct it more than likely will be a national dialogue and that dialogue will be the next general election.

What I don't get is why we don't have a deportation clause and send these people home once their sentence is completed.

Minister ring on RTÉ just now bitterly complaining that Flanagan hadn’t informed him of the achill plans. He also confirmed that originally the plan was for 38 men not 13 women.

He was so angry I wonder what has he said behind closed doors to Flanagan and varadkar

Brings to the end of all the speculation of who was lying. It actually looks like it was closer to 70 males that were going to be put into Achill.

I know it won't happen but whomever was lying about the numbers should be disciplined fairly hard as all this has done is make a bigger issue of the whole situation and possibly and election issue.

I've just deleted a number of posts. This thread is about the Achill decision, and not wider asylum policies

I see them as two separate topics. This one is specific to the Achill decision and is currently focussed on communications surrounding that decision. The other thread is more of a "live topic" and merging the two potentially detracts from each discussion (it would also have the impact of removing certain posters from the discussion who have been banned from posting in one, but not both, thread)

Either way, this is not for discussion here as it detracts from the underlying topic. If anyone wishes to discuss it further please PM me

Thanks
