    Default Poles sent 841million home from Ireland in 2009: Times

    And a total of 4.6billion since 2004. The 2009 total amounts to circa 4000 per Pole in Ireland which seems to an extraordinary amount when you add in children. But the line below takes the biscuit....

    He said remittances were very much a part of an open economy and it would be wrong to characterise these transfers of money as a negative for the Irish economy

    ....of course it has an negative impact you idiot and your argument about an 'open economy' is totally meaningless you moron.

    Fair play to them. Irish people have done the same thing for centuries.

    Imagine a relative not sending a few bob home to alleviate his own families financial difficulties.

    My Filipino collleagues have done more!!
    When a man sits with a pretty girl for an hour, it seems like a minute. But let him sit on a hot stove for a minute and it's longer than any hour. That's relativity.
