    Default Integration in Ireland is working: Up yours Merkel!!

    Well if this is not a proof of integration among our recently arrived East European brothers and sisters I do not know what is:

    SENIOR gardaí fear "a bloodbath" may ensue following attacks on a Cork-based gang which controls most of the estimated nationwide "€1 million a week" export of used clothing to eastern Europe..........

    Several clashes have occurred recently between the gangs, including a pitched-battle between combatants armed with baseball bats and hurleys on the South Ring Road. It subsequently went quiet but in the past few days gangrivals have fire-bombed vans.

    Default Bloodbath feared amongst clothes collecting gangs.

    Is there anything that encapsulates the state of lawlessness in this country than the clothes collecting Mafia bringing their corrupt racket to your doorstep with impunity.

    Now it seems a war is developing for control of the lucrative fraud that could have so easily been nipped in the bud before it putrefied into tit-for-tat fire-bombings.

    Why are you putting such a negative spin on what is actually a very positive story of integration in Ireland? You must be a racist!!

    Why is it a corrupt racket? It's very handy to be able to dispose of last year's designs so easily. They provide a service and if they make a profit good luck to them.

    Of course any violent turf wars are completely unacceptable and must be stamped out.

    Funny, my wife had a row (in Polish) with someone insisting on shoving collection leaflets through the letterbox marked 'No junk mail'. Boy, can they do language when they get going

    To collect clothes you have to have a license for obvious reasons.

    There are plenty of charities who would be delighted to see your last year's designs.
    But then that might mean going to the effort of bringing them to them.

    It may not be illegal but many people are led to believe these people are collecting for a non-profit organisation.

    Without a license it is illegal.

    It's not as if it would be a difficult thing to stamp out. Why hasn't it been stamped out?
