Quote from: Tony Baloney on November 30, 2023, 10:59:35 AMReduce taxpayer-funded pension contributions to fund public sector salary increases.

That would not be an increase, it would be a rearrangement to give the impression of short term gain.
They'd have more in their pocket tomorrow than they'd have today. There are plenty of people out there working with no pension arrangements.

That's on them? I've no doubt that the private sector could pump their pension with more money to reach the same levels?

The problem with pensions, not everyone is healthy enough to enjoy the benefits of it!

Are you trying to say someone in the private sector could have an equivalent public sector pension ?

I'm saying someone in the private sector can put in as much money as they want into a private pension.

If for instance someone earns 3 times the annual wage of a teacher they can (if they want) pump money into a private pension and it will match any teacher's pension.

All depends on how much they put in of course..

Public sector jobs are worst paid but get decent benefits at the end, should they stay in for the long haul..

I'd a pension that had different tiers to it when I first started working, there was a final salary pension plan in place, but it was a good chuck of your earnings.

I didn't know anyone who took it in fairness, as they wanted as much to have now, not later.

I'd a mate retired recently, 56, pumped his pension last ten years... he'll not be worried too much going forward

Joined the public sector 5 years ago having been private sector for 20+ years, took a fair bit of a pay cut but between me and her we are able to keep our heads above water.  A big attraction was not only the pension but also relative job security,  stand to be corrected but what I can see in the public sector you have a guaranteed job until the day you decide to retire, you will not find this in the private sector.

The video's of the funeral are daft, Dozens of scramblers doing wheelies and spinning tyres etc. Pure tramps. I'd say the priest was saying the mass in pure disgust.

Another dealer gone, hopefully more to follow in the aftermath.

No doubt a pile of the attendees all wearing new trainers and they would have picked up somewhere in the last 7 days  ;)

Quote from: armaghniac on November 24, 2023, 12:12:48 AMThe knifer was stopped, at least in part, by a Brazilian courier on a motorbike who stopped and biffed him with his helmet.

Where were all the brave Irish patriots then, needing a foreigner to step in to protect women & children?

The obvious answer is that its easier to find someone who is not from ireland in dublin these days than it is to find an irish man lol

Nonsense to start with and every bar, restaurant or cafe in the city would fold without their labour anyway as the scrotes thieving from stores last night won't (or can't) do that sort of work.

While a conversation has to be had around treatment of crime and values in this country, from foreigners and our own born & bred, immigrants have had an overall net positive in Dublin and made it a far more interesting, diverse and open minded city.

Agree 100%, if GB / RoI / NI wasn't filled with so many useless lazy b@stards there would not be a need for as much immigration and therefore less incentive to come here. 

At a regional level the principals of this were evident in NI long before the recent increase in recent years in immigration.  Politicians / 'community workers' crying on the TV about lack of opportunities / jobs for the supposed ' working class areas of Belfast yet M2 & M1 choked with cars and work vans every day.

Many moons ago I worked on Social Housing project in Belfast, a big demand for (free) housing in the area, however not many of the natives were working on the site or called in looking a start with the exception of collecting 'security' money.  All houses registered to 'single parent families' yet on moving in day the 'other half' also landed.

You are being too kind......Eire 90 give your head a wobble !
Quote from: theskull1 on November 24, 2023, 08:28:00 AMThere has been a complete collapse in social order in Dublin tonight. This is entirely the government's fault.

They flooded our country with unsustainable levels of migrants, planted small communities with migrant centers, responded to legitimate concerns by labelling all opposition "far right", and passed the most draconian hate speech laws in the world to shut us up.

When you deny people an outlet to express concerns they know are reasonable you make them desperate

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible, make violent revolution inevitable. — John F Kennedy

Catch yourself on, the people on the streets last night are scumbags pure and simple. Wtf has looting Arnotts, Foot Locket etc got do with expressing their political opinion?
Quote from: jcpen on November 24, 2023, 06:29:06 AM

I am surprised they didn't try to break in to JD Sports on Henry Street, it would be a real mecca for these scumbags.  I was in the one in Belfast the other week and could over hear two 'spides' drooling over some tracksuit, wouldn't be seen dead wearing that sort of stuff.

Quote from: thewobbler on November 24, 2023, 12:04:24 AMAs a policy it doesn't run along parallel lines with the housing crisis. But it does present any Irish person who is enduring financial struggles and concerns about their future, with a pretty rational reason to distrust their government, and the longer it continues, too begin hating their government. When a sizeable group of people of this mindset are found in the same area, plenty of them will be bored, plenty of them will be pitchfork wielders by nature and plenty of them will be vile scum. Meaning that peaceful protests will only go one way. It's a tinderbox just waiting for a spark. 

Many of the scum are living in housing provided by the taxpayer at a nominal rent and couldn't tell you what the real rent is. Perhaps the distrusters should wonder about them as well as refugees.

The thing that annoys me at about the housing is that within the so called 'working class' areas of places like Belfast / Dublin / Derry there is a sense of entitlement to a free house.  The rest of us had to get educated / get skilled in order to make our way in this world, nothing ever handed to us.  If you grow up getting your free house, your DLA and every benefit under the sun how are their offspring going to know any different in terms of how to get on in life. 

I guarantee you if you built 2 separate developments of housing and occupied one development with those from a supposed 'working class' area and the other development with those that cant get a mortgage but do not not qualify for social housing I guarantee which which one will look like a shit hole within 10 years.  Didn't have to work for it, didn't earn it therefore don't give a shit.

Instead of 'working class' areas the correct term should be 'work shy' areas.
Quote from: RadioGAAGAA on November 23, 2023, 08:15:43 PMThis is where the undue influence of lawyers leads to.

In an environment where anyone and everyone is open to legal action for the square root of fuk all - then the guards are afraid to do anything.

Proper order would be to baton charge the hoors and break at least one arm or leg on every one of them. Then not bother to provide hospital treatment. Let the c**ts learn to appreciate what actually happens if they were rejected by society.

That and a soaking from a water canon.

Absolute pond life these people same as the rioters you see in Belfast and Derry, all scumbags every one of them.
Quote from: armaghniac on November 23, 2023, 08:30:12 PMI'd say those involved weren't too worried about schooling never mind in a Gael Scoil.

Or have to worry about getting out of their beds in the morning to go to their work either.

Strange time of year to be bringing out a GAA show.

What prevents the UN moving into a situation like this as peacekeepers and putting troops on the ground? 

They have done in the past e.g. Yugoslavia in the 90s albeit with varying degrees of success.
Likewise from the north is it possible to access RTE player on a smart tv?

Quote from: Sportacus on November 21, 2023, 06:05:39 PMNot singling out SF, but the irony of politicians coming out today one after another to express their concern at bank closures in small towns. Whatever the rights and wrongs, they have lost the right to criticise when all they do is sit around getting paid to do nothing apart from bicker.  A press release is a good days work in their wee world.
That's due to one party and their drug dealing bosses. Not SF or SDLP or Alliance or any other party.
Although it was SF last time.  But that's not what I'm driving at.  I just find them all a bunch of amateurs.
