    “Happiness Report 2018, which ranks 156 countries by their happiness levels, and 117 countries by the happiness of their immigrants, was released on March 14th at a launch event at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences in the Vatican.”
    Ah, god bothering nonsense.

      Well dearie, that’s true. But as those people are dead they can’t fill out the questionnaire, so they don’t drag down the score.

    God I am tired of all them scandi countries letting on they are happy when we all know they are miserable!

        Speaking of which, where is david this morning? He normally has a couple of pages of incoherent rants done by this stage.

            Aaaaand, see below. Bit of German austerity, bit of Dublin bashing, some half hearted optimism. As you were.

          If david annoys ye so much why engage? He does make some valid and consistent points (although hard to get through) which ye don’t seem to address, or if you do, you smugly dismiss and then go back to your ‘bants’….just an observation is all.

            …I don’t normally engage with him because he is a zionist apologist who just spews out the usual script any chance he gets…in fact, there seem to be several people using that account…reminds me of ‘baz’ from a few years ago.
            I do agree that there ought to room for all shades of opinion on this site…some of the most original and entertaining have been hounded off…

            Unfortunately there will be a lot more shouting down until this referendum is over and not necessarily on the actual subject.

            White noise is a form of censorship too of course.

            I like David, he’s necassary, he polarises and helps discussing, nobody wants an echo chamber, and for a Jew he never calls anyone anti Semitic when they criticise Israel, I don’t give a damn about his grammar, anyone who does should be a pedantic school teacher.

            David, I tip my hat to you sir..

    Great to see us fourteenth
    in the happy league
    Just imagine if the Germans faced the austerity we faced imposed by having to pay the reckless German banks ,we would see them instead of 15th maybe just above Rumania at 54th.
    Sadly if Dublin was a country instead of a county they would be 56th

      But its great little Leo verruca will be citing this in the dail

    Who are they polling in Israel to get that high of a happiness index?!

    Or rather…who are they NOT polling?!
