Did anyone hear Pat Rabbitte on Morning Ireland this morning as I could not believe my ears when he as good as proposed that Ireland should introduce restrictions on immigration from the accession states due to the displacement it is producing in certain sectors, he named the construction, hospitality and meat processing sectors specifically. He cited the Irish Ferries saga, as well as soundings from around the country, as having led to him making this call.
Could people respond just to confirm that I was not still dreaming when I heard this!! I have not heard anything on later news bulletins.
Finally, those of us on who have been making these points on this website, and vilified for expressing them, have support from the mainstream for our views, and from the left to boot. Miracles do happen!
I once started a thread on this site as to whether there was room for an anti-immigation party in Ireland. Are the Labour now seeking to garner this vote. What do Labour Party members think? Check out Morning Ireland on the RTE site if you do not believe me.
