So the State may be looking at 25K+ persons. Taking current population of Ireland to be c.5m these decisions will directly lead to an increase of 0.5% in population and an increase in a house prices of 0.7% to 1.0%.
These figures are a floor, but this moron doesn’t know how many are going to flood into the amnesty, you can be sure interest is going to explode around the World, exhibit A:
and the Irish Department of Justice is dependent on Migrants Rights Council of Ireland a migrant lobby group to advise them. It is a new low even for the corruption that is endemic in Irish society.
This country is done at this stage. I’m looking at getting out to elsewhere in probably Western Europe in the next few years. Watching for the concrete signs of change on the continent.
I could in all seriousness see Ireland as a South Africa in 20/30 years time. Living in compounds, high walls, security companies to serve those with a few bob, an unsafe, corrupt shithole. I have to protect my family’s interests now.
The French elections and possible Frexit, Portugal’s recent election, Spain is not projected to continue growing it’s population, the Italians just can’t keep going the way they are. Then we have the fringes of Eastern Europe such as Croatia. Not setting the bar very high, but these societies are further down the road or more streetwise than Paddy.
Paddy is just so f**king lost (so long as there’s sufficient ‘crap-u-like’ for them)- I speak with family and all I get is a blank stare, like what’s that got to do with pints and holidays to New York. Portugal’s socialists I’m sure will welcome more in - although if I’m not mistaken they currently only have 500K in pop of approx 10M.
