Seriously.... Do you actually believe all of what you just wrote. You actually think if we vote in somone different then we will be better off. You are assuming that government actually controls the country, that say minister of health controls the hospital. When the next crowd come in they will change everything....ha...
Do you not realise that there is a group of civil servants who control the country, well they at least control the public part of the economy. Do you think they will bow down to sinn fein.....
Rest of the country mostly made up of private sector workers and employers go out and work hard every day and create wealth. This is what brought the country back from the last recession.
ELections are irrelevent. THey are just a vote without consequences. In fact its just another form of irish entertainment like GAA or rugby. Prize is we get in the news and talk on discussion panels. But thats it...
Seriously I do
Changes are imminent
Our HSE is full of managers who mismanage both their staff and patients
One of the biggest budgets in the EU
And also up amongst the top earners
Meanwhile it’s claim after claim after claim on a bear weekly basis at this stage ,
And when the covid tribunals etc start because of them the country will be at breaking point

Housing- a complete farce for
over 35 years
Galway tent backhanders etc etc etc

Special needs places a fuckin lottery
Schools at breaking point
Biggest class sizes in Europe

Inflation through the roof
Competition authority toothless
F all places for most addicts and alcoholics who want/ need help
List goes on and on
All fine by pricks in FF/FG over the generations and the gobshites who voted them in

PDs/ Labour and now the clownish Greens catered for by governments who needed their paltry votes to keep change from happening

Stuff your Neanderthal FF/FG politics
Time for immediate change
Your FFFG clowns gave destroyed tbe country with their cosy cosy monopoly
Thankfully it’s nearing its long awaited end
Without covid this sham government woulwrr
Hey, let me try :)

Pink bar is how good is the country in generating profit/earning/producing per person, simply how country in general is getting on when then divided by citizens. Bigger the bar, country is more profitable per person living in that country meaning - this in theory is how good the live is there, how much you can afford for the money you earned. (this is not perfect, better for it would be purchasing power index, but for this here is good enough).

Blue bar is how much can citizen afford to buy from the profit they generated from their work. Bigger the bar, you are wealthier.

If blue is bigger than pink, this means country (society) is living on loans, they consume more than produce. This is OK if not big difference, it is problematic if the gap is huge meaning people spend more than they earn.

If pink is bigger than blue, then it means that from all the wealth people produced only portion of it stays in their pockets making their lives better in general - you can afford more, you can live on the higher level.

From the above graph we can read, that Ireland despite generating enormous profit (pink bar) due to tax and general politics of the country mostly makes this wealth to go away (transferred out). This is not bad, as Ireland's economy well... lets say it is not Germany but more Luxembourg due to corpos here. However, comparing to Luxemburg (the wealthiest country) Ireland does not give earned money to the people to spend what they worked for (or reduce cost of spending using politics to eg. lower costs of living, fuel etc. simply they use political tools to move that pink bar to increase the blue bar, even simple thing like free medical service, better infrastructure paid for from the pink portion). It the blue bar tells you how wealthy the people are, how much they can afford to spend (not how much country earned/produced) and in that category we are behind for example... Lithuania. That blue bar gives you some of idea on standard of living in the country. The pink bar is showing how country is getting on.

Ergo, Ireland should have a better quality of life than Denmark but because of government (laws, taxes, rules) we are behind Lithuania.

Standard of living is not only the money you can spend but also availability of the services and access to them. That is why when this is taken into account (not exactly shown on the graph here) Ireland is below EU average despite having second largest earnings.

I am not sure if I managed ;)
we are mismanaged
Always have been
Hopefully our young will vote for change or else the cream will emigrate again
 
Has to temporarily while seismic changes take place ie the booting out of FF/ FG from Leinster house
HSE/ judiciary/ AGS / planning authorities all need reformed
This takes time- patience
But since the foundation of the state the ruling parties have fucked over the normal man
Mass emigration saved them in the past as the cream of the country has to leave
Presently most of our young intelligent ppl will not vote as their parents did
They’ll vote next time round for drastic change
And when (not if )SF and company take the reins they had better deliver
MM and Leo the langer will be long gone within 5 years
That asshole leader of the greens also

About time ppl of this broken state step up to the mark and vote these parasites out
sf can not govern without Ff,
 
Seriously I do
Changes are imminent
Our HSE is full of managers who mismanage both their staff and patients. ( are you going to sack the managers?
One of the biggest budgets in the EU
And also up amongst the top earners ( Reduce their salaries.... so basically ignore the law and contracts)
Meanwhile it’s claim after claim after claim on a bear weekly basis at this stage ,
And when the covid tribunals etc start because of them the country will be at breaking point ( no tribunals, i agree with that... however you know have to take on judiciary as well as HSE managers)

Housing- a complete farce for
over 35 years ( looking forward to building a new mahon or knocka or ballymun so)
Galway tent backhanders etc etc etc ( must have been some tent withall the money flying around)

Special needs places a fuckin lottery
Schools at breaking point
Biggest class sizes in Europe (We always had the biggest size classes in europe now they are smaller and education is dumber. Smokescreen by teachers ) again im looking forward to all the scools being built and teachers available to teach in them

Inflation through the roof ( good luck with that a world wide problem)
Competition authority toothless
F all places for most addicts and alcoholics who want/ need help
List goes on and on
All fine by pricks in FF/FG over the generations and the gobshites who voted them in

If pink is bigger than blue, then it means that from all the wealth people produced only portion of it stays in their pockets making their lives better in general - you should be able to afford more, you can live on the higher level.

I genuinely appreciate the effort you put in to writing that

I agree. If the civil servants, the unions, the corpo, the council, the burning toxic waste dump that is the hse bureaucracy, the nimby brigade etc. decide they don't like SFs great ideas, (and they probably won't), not a whole lot is going to change.

I agree. The trade unions have the state (and semi-state) sector in an iron grip. After the 2008 collapse, there was a window of opportunity to effect real change in the public services, but the chance was missed - there was a half-hearted attempt at mild reforms, but that quickly petered out.

I fear that the essence of SF's plans are to raise more taxes and just throw it at the HSE etc. Most of the extra money will be gobbled up by wages & increased staff numbers. No discernible improvement in the quality of services will follow, I fear.
