As you know, IRA/Sinn Fein want to see Northern Ireland absorbed into the Irish Republic. They believe this would be in our best economic and political  interests. So, how is the Republic doing?

The tumultuous after-effects of the Celtic Tiger’s demise are graphically highlighted with new figures which show that people are fleeing the Republic of Ireland in record numbers while the number of people moving to the country has also increased.

While many of those who are returning are Irish people who have worked abroad in countries such as Australia, where one-year visas are common, Europeans are also continuing to move to the Republic despite the economy’s collapse. (Mmm..WHICH Europeans? I don’t hear too much French or German being spoken on Dublin’s streets but plenty of Eastern European tongues)

Moving in the other direction is a growing stream of Irish people in search of a new life. That will create new social and political problems for a government that has, until now, been content to preside over the departure of foreigners in the hope that unemployment will fall. The figures from the CSO showed that more than 3,000 Irish people leave the country each month — the highest figure since the 19th Century

So, let’s all swim towards the sinking ship – Provonomics in 2011.

  1. Yup,

    The rats are deserting a stinking….OOP’s meant sinking ship. After they’ve gnawed all the Cletic Tigers toes off.

    AND,

    The Slavic slaves (attention: Rathkeale Travellers, especially the 12,000 Connor extended family) are shinning up the hawser to come aboard.

    Look up Disfunctional in the dictionary and you’ll see a photograph of the Emerald Isle.

  2. SF to nominate McGuinness as presidential candidate

    Sinn Féin’s Martin McGuinness is set to be the party’s candidate in the presidential election.

    Party president Gerry Adams said today the Ard Chomhairle would meet on Sunday to discuss a recommendation from the officer board to nominate Mr McGuinness, who is currently Northern Ireland Deputy First Minister.

    Mr Adams said it would be be a great honour for to propose Mr McGuinness to contest the election on a broad republican, citizen-centred platform.

    The election would give Mr McGuinness the platform to continue his work on the peace process and put it on a national footing, he said.

    “I believe he can be the people’s president. If elected he will draw the average industrial wage. He will dedicate himself to a genuine national reconciliation and the unity of our people. He will personify hope in the great genius and integrity of all the people of this island, Catholics, Protestants and Dissenters.

    Sinn Féin has 17 Oireachtas members, leaving Mr McGuinness with the task of getting the support of another three TDs or Senators in order to be able to secure a nomination.

    Independent Senator David Norris is expected to clarify his intentions when he appears on RTE’s Late Late Show this evening. Mr Norris, who pulled out of the presidential race in July, told independent TDs yesterday he wants to re-enter the contest.

    Meanwhile, Fianna Fáil’s parliamentary party will meet again on Tuesday to decide whether to allow TDs and Senators to nominate candidates.

    Fianna Fáil Senator Labhrás Ó Murchú is seeking the support of his colleagues to run as an Independent.

    Mr Ó Murchú said today he decided to run because he felt “the actual campaign was turning into a circus”.

    He said he wanted to run as an independent because Fianna Fáil had already decided not to run its own candidate and that decision could not be reversed.

    Candidates need the support of 20 Oireachtas members or four county councils in order to get their names on the ballot paper.
