UK: Yellow Curtains for Asylum Seekers

Refugees, Asylum-seekers and the Mass Media Project reports:
Asylum-seekers in Glasgow have been made easy victims of yobs – because bureaucrats insist on them all having the same yellow flowered curtains!

Marauding thugs just look up at the windows of high-rise blocks in the Barlooch district of Glasgow to see where asylum-seekers live. Some get into the flats and shout abuse through letters boxes, urinate against doors and, in at least one case, set fire to an asylum-seeker family’s front door. One resident changed the offending curtains and was told by bureaucrats – Put back the old curtains or you’re in trouble!
