The government is under no legal obligation to house anyone other than Irish citizens (yes, even EU citizens can be deported if they are a burden on the state).

Quote:
A draft report from a government panel, which was released on Wednesday, said that even if they were EU citizens, unemployed foreigners did not have a right to stay under EU law after three months if their job search had no chance of success.

My own proposal would be to continue offering assistance to any EU citizen who contributes more than €5,000 per annum in income tax. But the assistance should not be worth more than €5,000 in total.
Remove all assistance to non-EU citizens.

We're in an utter bizarre situation whereby the generosity of the government towards non-citizens is inflicting actual and real damage on it's own citizens.

AMEN to all of the above.

and has been the case for years
It was mentioned on a number of occasions during the Brexit that EU countries can and many DO deport welfare recipients and the UK could if it wanted to, but the Tories being the duplicitous cretins they are have never enfroced. The reason, suppression of wages and workers for starters.

I think politics.ie is a far better forum for bigotted idiots to stand in a barren field chucking muck at each other

The Irish Times really are shameless in their pumping.....Rialto is the new Ranelagh! :sick:

Fine tuned townhouse for €415k in Rialto – ‘the new Ranelagh’

“It’s a gorgeous little street with lovely neighbours” says Rice, who has printed 200 brochures for the property which he hopes to sell privately.

Already he’s had “a lot of calls” but this doesn’t surprise him. “It’s a really lovely house and Rialto is looking so good these days – it’s the new Ranelagh. ”

A townhouse has three or more floors. Otherwise it's just a house. FFS.

On the PPR for €230k just 20 months ago. Nice of the IT to do such a soft-focus piece on this gentle violinist-cum-property-developer who "potters about" as "a hobby, rather than a major money-making exercise". Looks pretty damn hard-nosed to me.

And the Irish Film and Television Award (IFTA) for Best Actor goes to..... John Connors for his role in Cardboard Gangsters!

I haven't seen the film but the reviews are excellent and it is currently trending on Netflix. By all accounts it is well worth watching.


Edit: John Connors barely got a mention on RTE but plenty of coverage of the Best Supporting Actor and the Lifetime Achievement Award.

Edit2: And here is John Connors acceptance speech.

Very good interview with Ibrahim Halawa with Ray Darcy on RTE Radio One. Worth listening back to.

Quite shocking to think of the hate campaign that was run against the lad on this site, but moreso on sites like Boards.ie, Politics.ie and TheJournal.ie. Real mental illness stuff.

Did anyone learn from it? Maybe to keep a more open mind about things? Maybe to be fair and balanced in expressing your views? Genuinely curious.

He should stick to the acting.

He clearly has nothing interesting to say about politics.

His interests seems to be in speaking up for those on the fringes of society or those who have suffered from depression on the impact of suicide. None of that might be of any interest to you which is fair enough I suppose. A lot of people aren't interested in things that don't impact them.

I saw Cardboard Gangsters on TV over xmas. It certainly didn't strike me as a movie that had any award winning performances, but who knows how the Luvvies thought processes work :wink:

I guess Buster is referring to: "Our reptilian, psychopathic government" that "is never going to do anything about the mental health crisis".

He should stick to acting.

He has less chance of getting cast or getting an agent after his shameful condoning of the looting scumbags in Jobstown !
