    In the US, such immigration would translate into an inward population movement of 45 million. In the UK, the figure would be nine million. Needless to say, neither state would be so idiotic or feckless as allow such vast numbers to enter.

    Only Ireland would be so idiotic and so morally lethargic as to allow such massive inward population movements.

    And of course, we haven't got the resources to cope with the consequences of such an influx. But worse than our lack of resources, is our lack of courage in confronting the issue.

    We do not have policies, but inept evasiveness: and perhaps worst of all, we have a posturing gallery of home-grown jackanapes ready to shriek "racism" wherever and whenever they see that things are not going quite the way that immigrants want.

    Thus, on any discussion on RTE, especially from its newsroom, immigrants are never held responsible for choosing to come here. Instead, we hear endless complaints that Irish institutions had not prepared themselves properly for their arrival.

    On the News at One on Monday, African after African in Balbriggan complained there were no places for their children in the existing local schools.

    Not once was the question posed: what was the real reason for the Africans not having places in schools? Answer: they'd only just come here.

    Instead, Africans who were just off the boat were allowed to accuse us of racism for not having school places awaiting their children.
    So, are you accepting that it's the assimilation that's the problem rather than the presence of foreigners itself?

    It is getting more and more like that here in Finland, it is not as bad as you are having but things are definetely getting worse.

    We are having elections this April and I hope that parties opposed to this stateof affairs will gain ground. My vote will go to the "perussuomalaiset"-party. Just haven't decided which candidate to vote for yet.

    Are politicians being held accountable for the damage they're causing?

    By the way, there are international laws Ireland has signed, about asylum. But maybe you want Ireland to quit the UN after the EU ?
    You don't have to quit, simply do what Japan does and not accept more than about 20 a year. Japan has a low crime rate and wants to keep it that way.

    I walked past my old primary schools in clondalkin village this morning and it was like a walk through Africa or Asia . I couldn't believe the amount of foreign nationals there are now . Its just crazy forking out money on education , health and welfare for all these people and their future generations when the country cant even look after its own elderly people and children,

    Traitors .. is the only word I could use to describe the europhilic governments that are destroying the nation of Ireland and the welfare of its native people.

    The previous FF administrations sold Ireland down the river in the interests of personal gain and gain for their friends.

    The destruction of Ireland is/was not isolated to uncontrolled immigration, but uncontrolled inflation, uncontrolled planning, uncontrolled development of multinational hypermarkets etc etc - they also failed to develop an integrated major city and national public transport system, state childcare facilities, affordable public health system etc etc. Introduced income levies and tax hikes to pay for their mistakes and seem to believe that the Irish public is content to pay millions more on top supporting welfare migrants who are supported by the politicos legal friends.

    Almost overnight Ireland was transformed for the worse into an unrecognisable country with identical mini-Britains erected on the outskirts of most towns, local traders and artisans put out of business, Irish towns became identical to their run down english neighbours and everyone is happy reading and watching Murdoch Media.

    The Irish public have paid and continue to pay tens of billions of euros bailing out the crimes of private bank executives while the incompetent Gardai & DPP cannot find the haystack (its not exactly a needle we are looking for), the Irish public were signed up to paying for the crimes of clerical rapists, voting machines which never worked and were stored at great cost by FF friends, we paid for politicos jollies to all parts of the world and even paid for hairdressers, breakfast chefs, limosines between airport terminals etc etc etc - so what else would you expect from a corrupt cabal.

    They didnt give a damn about the country or the people, how their shenanigans could alter the country forever - remember this was delivered to us by the inventors or Offshore Banking, Tax Evasion, won it on the gee gees, we must all tighten our belts etc.
