How many died in South Africa?
Also loads of them did not get paid for one of the worst world cups ever.

2 workers died building SA's world cup
5 have already died building Russia's 2018 world cup and 7 died in Brazil according to FIFA

I doubt SA's was the worst ever when you consider the housing clearance's and mass arrests that proceeded Brazil holding it.

Health and Safety accidents, etc., are not quite the same as what's going on now in Qatar. Please read the info and sign the petition to give the right message to everyone (big business) who's involved. It could save lives both now and in the future.

I must admit that I'd also like to see the games boycotted but I very much doubt that would happen. Treat workers decently or no-one will attend?

It was crap to watch, as for those stupid horns.
Google it,and you will get your answer to one of the most boring world cups ever.
The football itself was rubbish.
Anyhow who would want to go to South Africa, except for the die hard fans who have money to spend.

Your third word is a good description of your answer. I have visited more than 70 countries and SA rates as one of the top. There is always some --- who has not been here but knows it all.

Ever heard of Apartheid?
Or has all the white South Africans migrated to Western Australia?
As there seems to be more of them living in Perth as there is in Cape Town.

Australia has hard and fast rules against exploitation and racism. Thee figures were announced yesterday on exploitation of visa workers. In most of not all cases the disputed money was recovered. In most of the cases the workers in question were being exploited by their ethnic compatriots. Don't single out West Australia there are more ex South Africans in Melbourne. A high percentage of them are Jews again reacting to an unstable environment. And if you think that is an exaggeration, listen to the comments from soviet fascist invaders of the Ukraine spouting the usual trash about "rotten Ukraine Jews " being responsible for all their aggression.

Very few South Africans have emigrated to Australia and the great majority of them are very welcome.

Tell us all about Australia's record on racism.
