    Default Midweek on TV3, Now - The Hard up Irish



    MIDWEEK - TV3 22.10 24/10/12

    Shocking new figures reveal that 10% of Irish people have experience of food poverty and that's not just the unemployed. Now people in full time employment are seeking help from local food charities. Rising Rents, lower wages and increasing food prices are forcing more and more of the working poor into food poverty. That's Food Poverty - The Awful Truth

    Wednesday at 10pm on 3 and 3player.







    Well whilst Enda Kenny starts to think of where he can put his European of the Year trophy TV3 are showing the reality of hardship in Ireland.

    Midweek is showing how 69% of School Children and going to school hungry, and 10% of the population are in food poverty.

    One guy who employed upto 20 people was now homeless and starving on the streets of Dublin.


    Showing now on TV3.

    You'll be told to concentrate on the 31% of children who get their porridge before going to school.

    As for the ex-employer sleeping rough, he's probably the Secret Millionaire.

    Right, Enda . . ?
    Abortion is an act of violence. Violence demeans humanity, particularly violence against women and children.

    The moustache still trying to rehabilitate himself.

    The nauseating Eddie Hobbs will be on later to discuss his WSJ article and explain how he got his figures so wrong. The latter might not happen.

    Of all the people to talk about it they get on Willie O feckin Dea.

    Should have dragged one of those overpaid Fine Gael ************************ers into the studio and asked them how do the feel watching the video of Irish people standing in que for food.

    Ask them why are the people of Ireland having to pay for their lavish lifestyles and banksters.

    While I am not a fan of violence. Each time I see Willie O'Dea I have this overwhelming desire to "knock his block off".

    The man is objectionable.

    I simply don't believe that 70% of children are going to school hungry.

    Surely this is a contradictory statement.

    Ah, that website twistsoupkitchen has crashed, that's a lot of donations which might not now be given!

    Edit: Got through, the website is very basic, someone who's good at website design should look into giving a few hours to spruce it up. The donation page uses iDonate which requires full details such as address, date of birth etc. when it should really be one-click by paypal or whatever.
