Not enough suicidal asylum seekers?

Oh God!

A branch of the Samaritans has had its application for a £300,000 lottery grant rejected because, it was told, it does not do enough for the disadvantaged, asylum seekers and ethnic minorities.


and, only last month:

The Lake District National Park is to axe the free guided walks carried out by over 100 volunteer rangers because they attract only "middle-aged, middle-class white people".


I'm sure they only decide these things to make us angry. Always works on me.

Do you think we suffer more of this idiocy in the UK than other European countries, jorgen?
