[update] Der Malta Independent hat das Posting mittlerweile offline genommen, vorher stand da noch: „The story as reported by the Italian media turned out to be a hoax.“
Nazis, the Pimples on the Butt Jokes of Existence.
Seven Lega Nord activists wanted to make a point by sailing a rubber dinghy from Italy to Tunisia to show how easy it is for asylum seekers to cross over in the opposite direction.
But when they were near Malta, the dinghy’s motor caught fire. After they had put out the fire, the Leghisti tried to launch a distress signal. Somehow, however, the launcher must have been facing the wrong direction, for the flare pierced the rubber dinghy and they all ended up in the sea. […]
Apart from being ridiculed all over the Italian press, and even in the Lega Nord paper itself, the seven will now have to pay for being saved from the sea.
