    I dont oppose the concept of 'encouraging' people to work.
    I oppose the idea of forcing people to do donkey work for peanuts.

    Emigrate to take a minimum wage (a lower one at that) job collecting glasses in an establishment regaled with tricolours, shamrocks and harps with a name like O'Sweeny's Genuine Irish Pub.

    Tourism is also socially destructive.
    Take the shinny new Adare manor for example.
    It used to be an accessable , community amenity , for locals and others. Now it is for rich nobs only.
