I'm most interested to read the "What you can do about refugees.." thread at the bottom by SamShark.

Is it the usual Bored joke changing "referees" to "refugees" or did Sam really have some good advice? There's a lot of posts in there....

The thread is still there: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=65561&p=3568795

It was in the aftermath of the picture of the dead Syrian 2 year old on the beach, so it was just when sentiment towards refugees was softening and borders were opened before it was all reversed a year later and we ended up with Brexit etc.

See they were cracking down on potential abuse of blood substitutes. Seems a bit OTT.

They should really bring back the Stephen Jones opinion column piece. I think we could all learn something from his rugby knowledge.

Ah yeah, the dad who got his kid drowned - wonder if they did in fact end up in Canada ? Or did they have to go back to war torn Turkey ?
