Indeed, the insanity of the idea that 500 million people have the right to walk into a tiny country like Ireland, at any time of their own choosing, is starting to dawn on even the most intellectually challenged of the Irish. The Irish middle classes may be able to keep migrants out of their own neighborhoods. But they won't be so immune from Cronavirus.

Thank God, life is good sometimes. Doubt it can fix their stupidity though. They'd bought all the flour and pasta out of the large Tesco yesterday.

People are so addicted to cheap goods and services there would be riots on the streets if they couldn't get year round strawberries oranges and bananas at prices they could afford. It's one thing to never have something but it's another thing to take something away from people.

Ask yourself one thing if you were to provide only Irish made clothes can you imagine a cost of producing that clothing.

at the moment an Irish jumper costs €120 to buy.

one thing that it is useful for is to show up just how poorly paid people are

We have an unnatural lack of riots in this country - anything which reintroduces rioting as a common reaction to the shortages and/or price increases will be a return to historical norms and an indication that testosterone levels have returned to healthy levels as well

With Irish manufactured jumpers selling only to tourists it's hardly surprising the cost is stupid. Globo-homo has conditioned people on modest incomes to buy a new wardrobe for themselves and their entire families each season. Peoples ability to do this should not be a concern to a reasonable person

We have a lot of writing this country I've noticed that in history even the 1916 rebels were castigated by the women of Dublin for delaying their ability to get there money from the Post office. the 1913 lockout also went on for a long time and cause damage ultimately the employers won.

Unless you're going to go to extreme lengths like destroying entire cities this country is a farm for wealthy people to utilise to make money

If the people on modest incomes can't afford what they see as a decent lifestyle or they see a sudden drop in their living standards they won't work for modest incomes anymore. It breaks the emotional contract the very reason why people waste their time working.

The natural assumption is that you work hard and you can somehow provide everything you'll ever need from that work plus a little extra for a holiday.

Given the price of goods and services on the international market you really need to be getting at least 1000 a week to break-even. Everyone below that is being subsidised by this globalised economy if cheap goods.

It'd be a shame if the virus wiped out the eu fanatics in Brussels. An awful shame.
