    Could it be that with the water issue settled for the minute and the economic downturn reversed, all be it slow that people may settle back into patterns of voting for FG and FF again in much bigger numbers than the last one out?
    A spring election may suit both

    They still have to sort out Health, Education, Housing, Crime and Brexit also Trump's pledge to cut US corporation tax is another fly in the ointment. If they are dumb enough to call another election FG will be big losers. FF & SF are still too stupid to capitalise on this, so very little will change.

    The people who went and took part in "Scambridge" got valuable experience and now are highly employable.

    The people who stayed at home,refused to get experience and complained all the time are now long term unemployed.

    Because i knew many highly skilled people, with qualifications, many years experience who were treated like dirt and used in this scheme.
    Agree these schemes are total baloney - they are just a way for politicians and bureaucrats to massage the live register figures in order to make it seem like there are fewer people unemployed than there really are. i don't know of anyone who ever got a job or any valuable work experience on these schemes.

    Most I know regretted not doing courses in Intereo/Fas/Solas or going back to College on the Springboard scheme.

    Though employers enjoyed the free labour and tax breaks though!!

    Yep, it's quite the gravy train if you can jump on it.

    Bruton will march right on through the sea of sh!T that the local FG party generates on his quest to re-election. Believe me.
