      I hope your uncle is successful in securing you the position you so fully deserve.
      I look forward to the ‘Joe cool Show’, Tuesdays at 11:20 with repeats on Fridays at 01:45, which is Saturday really when you think about it…

      Anyway, good luck Joe.
      The worst that can happen is that you end up working in the canteen, and look what happened to Brian Tubbery. He nearly got a job in England!!!

    Clampers (for I think it was you), did you see the government are thinking about helping to relocate homeless families to vacant properties around the country? Could be a great idea.

      They tried something like this some time back, troubled families were taken from troubled areas and given homes down the country. Trouble was these families brought their troubled ways with them and began terrorising the locals.

        I thought this scheme worked very well in many places.

        Was there an objection evaluation carried out beyond the blow-in-type analysis of ‘these families brought their troubled ways with them and began terrorising the locals.’

          Admittedly I am speaking from a small sample size of several towns on the Galway/Roscommon border. It may have worked well elsewhere, but not here. Thankfully most of the offenders have relocated back to Dublin.

          I heard Fr McVerry come out against it yesterday, but the way he told it, it was the government forcing people on cattle trucks rather than giving them a free house in Dublin CC.

          I know it’s an unbelievably complicated issue, but jeebus.

      Ah stick it.
      Germany has confronted & made amends for past wrongs in a way that few other political entities ever had. The UK barely recognises the genocides it was built upon.

      Germany already takes one of the highest number of migrants per capita.

      Obv there are pragmatic demographic reasons for Germany to do so but the ‘Don’t mention the war’ shtick is very tired.

        I would have to agree.
        (As a parallel I read a lot of articles recently about German involvement in Greek corruption, before I realised they were the only ones prosecuting for it)
