Regarding immigrants

Much has been said about immigrants in the last months. We have a strong view on the subject of immigrants, and it is about time you all heard what it is.

Number 1.

Immigrants smell nice. Ours handle a lot of broccoli, kale and other greens, so this is perhaps a given, but nonetheless not to be sniffed at. Or actually, do sniff at immigrants. Just explain that it is because they probably smell of green vegetables.

Just in case.

Number 2. 

See number 1. The importance of kale for world peace cannot be overestimated.

Number 3. 

Immigrants are vilified by the thick and the malicious and the plain dangerous nutcases with more money than is good for the world. Generalisations are bandied about for populist ends and dark political agendas with no regard for truth or fact. Stupid people fall for this and start gobbling up stereotypes and plain lies to spew them out publicly as if racism, religious intolerance and hatred of those who are different from us are the new norm.

We can’t sit by and do nothing.

 

Number 4.

In the light of the above injustice we now have our very own immigrants who have moved into our vegetable garden.

Meet Frappe and Latte

Look at their faces. Homeless and worried about what their future holds. Who would want to build a wall to ‘keep them out’?!

So we invited them to share our home and our staff with us. The Bunnington Post isn’t full.

They arrived with their own waiter and waitress and brought a new home. Latte made sure he looked well-groomed and presentable to our newsroom.

He has trained his waitress well.

Meanwhile, building works were progressing well.

That’s their equally well-educated waiter wielding a screwdriver right there.

And finally Frappe and Latte were installed in their new home.

Facilities and the daily service have received the thumbs up from our lovely new friends…

…and the ladies have been having gossipy chats over the fence.

And Bouffe and Latte have been discussing equally gossipy matters of importance:

Now, if only humans could be as peaceful and understanding of each other… our world would be a whole lot more gentle and pleasant indeed.

There’s enough to go round for all of us.
