I urge all of you to listen to this podcast from the Joe Duffy show yesterday.

Forward to 43 mins onwards.
A man from Slovakia commited suicide after being left without no support, huge debts and no hope.
For months he waited for his dole payments to come though and received no help in between. No money to pay his ESB bill afraid to use his electricity, him and his wife trying to keep warm with a candle.
The man eventually ends up commiting suicide.
A few days later his welfare cheque arrives and his wife cant even cash it to give him a funeral.
Is this what our country has come to? Disgraceful and disgusting.
How many other poor souls are in this situation?
How many people are off the records from dole figures awaiting to get some help and living in poverty.
This goverment are now looking to cut more from families and people where the end result will end up like this whilst the greens feel good about themselves adding tax to electricity charges that people cant afford.
This country disgusts me.
RIP to the poor man and my heart and prayers go out to his family.
