    Admirable, but some welfare cannot be eliminated, for instance Carers allowance.

    The Secretary General at the Dept Social Protection admits that the 'welfare cheat' campaign was a mistake. Does @campaignforleo agree? #pac

    This chappie is a complete snowflake...the dogs in the street know that welfare cheating is rife and endemic in our fair land.I am a small businessman trying to compete with vat dodgers ,dole scroungers ,sick leave chancers etc etc.

    Have had to employ mainly Eastern Europeans whose attitudes and work ethic would put the lazy cheating Irish workers to shame ...not all of them mind but a very worrying percentage !

    Bloody snowflake ....

    Squeaky clean new Secretary General dumping on his predecessor - I hope Niamh O'D tears him a new one at the DSP Christmas Party - and believe me, she has the balls to do it!

    Leo ran that campaign to get himself promoted and it worked.

    As for the rest of you, do you seriously think that I and many others like myself, prefer to be blacklisted on the dole than working?

    Do any of you have any inkling of an idea on how hard it is to back into the job market? I really doubt it is the case.
