Thanks for shedding light on that, i had no idea - i now kind of understand the implications of this matter if it was put in place, and also find it
stupid if we did such a thing. Ireland contributes to our economy like no other.
To say Ireland's population is about 4-5million, they do a great deal for us, and i welcome any trade. They have a good way of living, family wise,
home wise, economies abit touchy but arnt all western countries. . what im getting at here is Ireland has 4.5 million people who want to stay in their
own country, make it better and progress together - wheres as the majority of people from Europe, in poverty stricken areas:
All want to go somewhere else, to send money back home. This is a great number of people wanting a better life, but in effect - smash our economy to
bits in the same breath by creating cheaper labor. We're pretty much importing poverty, displacing our own citizens from employment.
I think immigration is brilliant but why do we let people through our borders, in these massive numbers - who are not contributing what our own
citizens wouldnt? O.k if they bring something of higher education to our country, like doctoring - but their not, there here for cheap labor which is
allot of money in their eyes - all to send back home.
My street has only Polski and Lithuanian people living in it - i dont dislike this at all, and i go round to some of their houses - they are very very
nice people (bare in mind im mixed race and they never had people of color in their own countries) But what they were doing was saving for a better
life in their own country, sending money back to their wives, children & parents.
I can only imagine the amount of money our country has lost out because of the mass immigration. I dont blame the people looking for a better life, i
blame unelected officials in Brussels dictating who should be allowed in.
With what you stated, i see the sense in having our borders, open. BUT - we should see this as a time to bring real change in the criteria of people
we let in - not just anybody, that is wrong. We're pretty much the best country out of all the European union, so the majority want to come here.
This is THE problem
