    Default Kevin Myers on Nigerians "living off this State"

    http://www.independent.ie/opinion/colum ... 56226.html

    Myers is one of the very few non PC journalists out there wishing to handle this story. Don't agree with him on all topics he writes on but this is well worth a read.

    Kevin Myers is just a journalistic troll. In an ideal world scum like him would be frying burgers in McDonalds.

    Give it two minutes before the bleeding hearts brigade round on you accusing you of being racist. Fair play. Brave decision for posting.

    What are FG's policies on this issue then? Work camps I presume?

    Bravo Kevin Myers
    And, naturally, for this is Ireland, it's professionally far more rewarding for the media to go on an easy, Catholic-bashing spree than it is to inquire into the complex and possibly discomfiting truths about immigration.
    . Not a truer word has been spoken. Wait for the hysterical shreeks of the pc left.

    That's unfair on people working in MacDonald's.

    I agree completely. It was a good article - based on figures from the CSO - that raises good questions.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Interesting statistics there. Meyers has a good point on this one.

    What is it we owe Nigeria again?

    I warmly welcome refugees into the country and considering Irish people can work and claim EU benefits in other EU countries it's only natural that other EU citizens can do the same here.

    Ever since I started working with them when I was 18 though I've known that there are a significant number of Nigerians in the country who are scammers. Myers deserves praise for writing this article.
