I may have mentioned this case before...A standard answer to that question about how long does it take a family to become Irish would be that where the foreign population remains a low % of the total they can assimilate quickly - but where we have a situation like now, where 20% of the population is non-Irish, there's no need or even opportunity for assimilation. We have Polish people living in Ireland for over ten years who still can't speak English. It gets worse among Asians. Nigerians can already speak English, but some African groups here don't bother with English at all - and they don't need to. They get all their TV programs from home via satellite.
Funny enough I met an Egyptian who got Refugee Status & a Disability Pension.I may have mentioned this case before...
I used to live beside an Egyptian family (I was paying a mortgage, they were paying nothing).
I found out that the father and mother were naturalized Irish citizens.
The man had poor English, but enough to 'defend himself', as the Spanish expression puts it.
The woman spoke no English at all, aside from enough to say How Much? etc in Tesco..
She spent all day watching Arabic TV on satellite, just as you say.
Neither had anything to offer Ireland,and will remain as parasites till the day of their death.
Maybe we knew the same bastard.Funny enough I met an Egyptian who got Refugee Status & a Disability Pension.
I knew of the Solicitor that got both for him, you should have seen his face light up at the mention of that Solicitor's Name.
That moment was a Watershed for me.
