Setting yourself on fire is never a smart idea. Ever. Not only does this seldom get you what you want, but often times it gets you severe burns, maybe even skin grafts, and a lot of unusable clothing. It is also a good way to make yourself not liked, since most people don’t like hanging out with people who set themselves on fire. However, given that Merkel and the BBC see these “refugees” as the future “doctors and scientists” of Europe, perhaps they know something which we do not.
I wonder, will these “refugees” who did this then ask for new clothes, and medical treatment to cover the damage of their actions?
