How come there are 455,000 people on the dole and yet only 1,500 see fit to protest this government in the capital yesterday. Why are Irish people so indifferent to the state the country is in. I've thought about this a lot recently and i've come to the conclusion that social welfare payments are to high and this is part of the problem. Is it possible FF know that if they lower welfare payments by the 30-40% they need to be brought down by, that the people will rise up againest them. Thoughts?
