I fail to see the connection between these direct provision hostels and the Magdalen homes.
People were forced to work for free in the Magdalen homes, whereas the people living in the direct provision hostels live there for free, and also get money for not working.
People could not leave Magdalen homes, yet the residents in these hostels are free to leave, and return whence they came at any time.
I think your comparison is a bit lazy.
Where have the "U.N" condemned these hostels?
