    An asylum seeker is suing the state, claiming he has been served up sickening food at a Waterford refugee centre. The Irish Daily Mail reports that 36 yer old Zineedine Kelbouz believes his health has been damaged by food he has eaten. He had been staying at Waterford's Viking House but was moved to another centre in Longford after allegedly making an abusive remark to staff after he was refused the option of yogurt and bananna for breakfast.

    If one is not happy with a proposed development next door, one has the right to object per the normal planning process, which in this instance has now been removed.

    'Move to Ireland as it is a nice place to live and safe for religious minorities'. Which reads like an IDA or Failte sound bite.

    What sort of spa gets upset by that?

    The development already exists. The ope ope staying in them changes and that's not a planning issue.

    On what grounds would these objections be based?

    I would assume to stop organised objections - clarify the law before the wing nuts hit the courts

    Eh, no they are not actually.

    MRBI/Irish Times poll before Christmas showed majority opposed to taking Syrian refugees;

    Of course, a lot has happened since that might have changed peoples minds; Paris, Cologne etc.
