    There are also people who are employed on very low pay but also get sw legally.
    Education and attitude should get most of them a job!

    I'm sure there is loads of Corporate Welfare fraud but somehow I doubt that Leo is referring to that.

    How do you know which estimate is the more accurate? Where is your model that arrives at the 25-50m?

    If it's anything like Burtons supposed crackdown of a few years ago i doubt we will see much action ...

    Looking across the various threads recently and the upsurge of activity from certain posters i reckon poor Leo must not be getting great feedback from the FG grassroots and this is just a stunt to try and big up his profile as a hard man.......

    A Channel 4 documentary a few years ago claimed the average white collar crime was in the region of $250k....

    But then we can see from the unwillingness to tackle Garda malpractice why FF-FG run scared when it comes to the real criminality in our midst....

    Hasn't though the system in the Republic of Ireland become very tight since the collapse of the "Celtic Tiger"?

    The only Political Parties I can see approving in anyway of Welfare fraud in Ireland are the "Socialist Party" and "People Before Profit".

    Desperate stuff from Varadker. He knows though that it will tick a few boxes with a certain cohort who might think that if there was less welfare paid out fraudulent or not that would mean more money in their pockets. In reality this campaign will probably cost more than it will gain in terms of "money back" from fraudsters. Cynical Rightist tactics from Varadker. It'll go down well with the Trump fanboys around here.

    Employers should be forced to hire qualified people in extreme cases. This is a two way street.
