If the government are expected to support the workers, then it should be the idle Irish they should be supporting back into work, there is no need to import any additional workers.

Mr Tóibín said: “The high number of unaccompanied minors seeking international protection here is striking. In 2020 some 82 children were referred to Tusla by direct provision centres. This represents about 4 per cent of all children in direct provision.

“The number of children referred to Tusla from direct provision centres is higher than the number of referrals made by addiction counsellors.”

At the end of October, there were 1,278 international protection applications in respect of children under 18 years which were pending, of which 51 applications were in respect of unaccompanied minors.

How kids coming in alone?

Many come over disguised as adults.

Maybe some of the “children” died of old age

A big thing is he’s allowing dual citizenship which changes the rules of the game significantly. Of course no one who supports Israeli/American dual citizenship can object to this. Dual citizenship for Jews in America has probably done more harm to norms than dual citizenship for Muslims in Germany will.

Of course their stated reason for allowing dual citizenship is to “promote integration” but Shamima Begum etc were British citizens so it’s all a sham to increase the number of non-German clients for the SPD.

When I brought my proposals to Government I made it clear that there was no way of establishing how many people will benefit from the scheme and no firm data existed to help on that point.

So an open ended scheme then, and a Minister so far out of her depth it isn’t funny

To think, it wasn’t 20 years ago that Michael McDowell occupied that office

Another day in Gombeenville

Restaurants are expecting a great surge in demand for expensive eating out in 2022 and need to import labour to get ahead of the curve

The restaurants and hotels are looking towards the 2022 season and to get someone here on a work permit will take a minimum of 16 weeks. That’s why we’re seeing a surge in that area.

“If restaurants or hotels start now, they’ll have people on the ground come March 2022 ahead of what will hopefully be a busy tourism season.”

While everybody knows truck drivers are a very content lot, who are so satisfied with life they need more imported competition from outside the EU. Like a hole in the head

“I’d say haulage is the biggest area at the moment in terms of applications given the shortages of drivers and the fact that a lot of businesses are relying on deliveries,” he added.

These employers searched to the ends of Europe and couldn’t find anybody, so Ireland, well it’s the new UK:

“Ireland has become the new UK in terms of the level of attraction to work here. The marketplace for employment is huge here in Ireland.

“There’s been a lot of recruitment going on outside Europe,” he added. “Companies have advertised in Europe for new posts and have received no suitable responses so they’ll expand their search.

“Ninety-nine percent of the time, companies come back to us and say they can’t find anyone in Europe after advertising. If you can’t find people in Europe, you have to expand your search and there are very highly skilled workers out there who are eager to come here to Ireland to work and live,” he added.

Just what rural Ireland needs a plantation from South Africa, what could go wrong:

“It’s good for us and it’s good for them - it’s a two-way street. A lot of workers, especially those coming from South Africa, are keen to move to rural areas. That will have a positive impact on rural areas in Ireland.”

Never mind the Omicron :sneezing_face:, feel the wedge :moneybag:

And sure while you’re at it, bring the family:

“We like helping people access a better quality of life and a better quality of work. We’re dealing with people who are circumnavigating the globe and arriving in a country they may know little or nothing about,” he added.

“They will undoubtedly have questions from where they’ll be living to things like school options and work for spouses. We’re here to help with that.”

Pump up the growth, import more people, then more people will be using these services so more will be needed to provide, repeat!
Why does no one say, enough!

A nation of self-flagellating masochists :zipper_mouth_face::icon_wink:

Yep, just like the gaff bubble, builders coming in in droves essentially then building gaffs for themselves, rinse, etc.

So a good name for this bubble, that’ll make it easier for the sheeple to understand?


#338

Celtic Globohomo Bubble

There was always going to be a pop with the gafff one but this one…what when we’re too full?

Just look at the UK, we could potentially get to their level of overcrowded and more.

Far far more

Well we’re in the EU. Johnson surely has to get a handle on the channel crossings ASAP. Following in -party rebellion and Shropshire, he’s got to start following Conservative policies.

Free trade agreements have been tied in with free movement of people more and more :

Among the main points of the deal listed by the UK government are:
It gives UK firms guaranteed access to bid for an additional £10bn worth of Australian public sector contracts per year
It allows young people to work and travel in Australia for up to three years at a time, removing previous visa rules
It gives UK professionals including architects, scientists, researchers, lawyers and accountants access to Australian work visas without being subject to Australia’s skilled occupation list.

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-12-17/australia-signs-free-trade-agreement-united-kingdom/100706992

both countries affirm their “commitment to address climate change”, including under the Paris Agreement. It also says both recognise “the importance of achieving their goals” under the agreement.

^^ Great to see such commitment as they ship things across the planet that could have been made locally, such important things like butter and beef
