    [QUOTE=Kev408;10026213]Actually, the drugs problem has probably been over-covered, the national debt encompasses the economy which FG have managed to persuade many sheep is far more important than human beings' welfare, accountability by the institutional state is being covered (in the mind of the media) with hospitals being held accountable for missing cancer diagnoses, trolley counts etc but I do agree about Dinny.

    His lack of coverage probably has nothing to do with the fact that he owns Irish media to a large extent *cough*. Regardless of all the above points, the invading hoards of Islam is not being discussed because the vast majority of sensient humans in Ireland are not remotely concerned about it. And rightfully so.[/QUOTE]

    Virtually every opinion poll conducted on the issue of immigration has proved that people think the complete opposite of you actually.

    There is and has Been a tacit agreement between the parties since we opened our border to mass immigration in 2004 not to discuss the matter.
    Anyone voting in Cork North Central give Peter o Loughlin your number 1 vote.

    Anything of actual importance is almost never discussed by the main parties, and when it is it is presented as a fait accompli that only a moron would oppose, especially if there are real world examples of better approaches having better outcomes.

    One candidate suggests little public interest. Lets see how he gets on and use that as a gauge of public opinion?

    The situation highlighted by your buddy of the original post was that Islamic immigration has not been discussed by any party during this General Election. I responded with a perfectly reasonable point that it hasn't been brought up because it doesn't matter enough to be brought up. If it mattered to the Irish electorate it would be mentioned at every opportunity in the same way as the drugs problem, homelessness, the economy, Irish Water, housing etc are. It isn't because it's not even remotely on our radar.

    Now, if you and your handful of pathetically disorganised, homophobic, circle-jerking gobshytes want to make out like the completely ignored issue of Saracen's savages invading us is important to the Irish electorate despite the latter never mentioning it, well then masturbate away. I think I just realised where your blindness comes from.

    Irish general election campaigns focus on populist issues such as increasing the dole and PS pay. Long term issues such as immigration, defence, the north or our relationship with the EU are rarely mentioned and when they are they never become a serious issue that is debated over at length.

    Most of the parties are pro mass immigration so nothing will change over the next few weeks. If anything it will get worse if Sinn Féin/ MI5 enter government.

    What on earth is that ?
    I somehow got used to SF/IRA. But connecting them to the British secret service is a new conspiracy theory to me.
    Does that mean you are "tsarbomb/FSB" ? One of Putler's agents ?

    There is never a political debate on this except the occasional criticisms by former Justice Minister McDowell and Pat Rabbitte in 2002-7. There seems to be a consensus in the Establishment not to politicise it, which unfortunately denies the voter a choice. But as the citizenship referendum showed there is such a thing as the silent majority
