Wrong wrong wrong wrong! Now, take in to account that 38% of workers in Ireland pay no P.A.Y.E. tax. That includes a proportion of the Irish population but mostly foreigners, it must be acknowledged. Not only that, but when one factors in Children Allowance [not to mention Medical Card, Council House, Unemployment Benefit/Assistance etc. etc. ], an even greater proportion of the immigrant population are effective net beneficiaries of public largess. Which means middle-to-high income earners. Who pays?

again you are misquoting me.......these are people who have fully intergrated into society as a whole and have made their roots here. Fair play to them.

Does she earn more than 25,000 euro a year? If not shes pays no PAYE and a couple of euro in PRSI.

I repeat, 38% of the population pay no PAYE. Most of these would be foreigners working for low rates of pay.

I think you know, nowt.

When are they going home? They are not needed anymore.

The elephant in the room is that the large anti-Lisbon vote last year in Irish workingclass areas may well have been influenced by immigration, but such are the limitations imposed by our tsars of political correctness that the possibility may not even be publicly aired. Indeed, ask any question at all about the wider implications of immigration and the Pavlovian response is an accusation of racism.

The Poles, as an ethnic group, are a burden on the Irish state.

Maybe. Just as Ireland was a burden on EU, milking the union for many
years and benefitting immensely from European Union funds.

As Poland is a new EU member we are still net beneficients of the system.
However, what Poland receives per capita is nothing compared to the money
that Ireland got.

The Irish weren't complaining when they were milking the EU and getting
huge benefits for years. Now, when they have to share some of their wealth
they seem to think that it's not fair.

It was foreign investment. The EU and America seen Ireland as an ideal location for their companies....and so EU funding flooded in to create the many factories and offices for these companies creating jobs. Where are they now? and more to the point where is the wealth you talk about?

You still haven't demonstrated how the net contribution of Polish people in Ireland is detrimental to the country.

time means
I was born and spent most of my life in Belfast I dont need some foreigner telling me, at the point of a gun, how British I am. As you very well know a lot of people in the Six Counties view themselves as British, a slim majority yes but an artifically created one, maintained through force of arms. Dont try to score cheap points by insulting Irish people.

Exactly. It has been an ideal location for their companies because you have been
an EU member. All that investment from America and Europe came to your country
because you have been in the common trade area with a huge EU market.

They wouldn't even bother investing all that huge money in a 3,7 million country
if you weren't a part of EU (which is quite obvious if you look at Ireland before
1973 - why didn't they invest all that money when you weren't an EU member?).

It was foreign investment.

Not only. From the EU structural funds alone you've received over 17 billion euro,
not to mention the funds for farming and other EU programs that were vital in
creating the "Celtic Tiger" economy.

So they should be repatriated. They are guest workers, they got paid. They become unemployed they should be sent back home. Its where charity begins.

I have posted many links showing how Poles are a burden on the Irish economy. Not one has been refuted.

The EU has got billions from fishing in Irish waters. Theres no such thing as a free lunch.

well they have got jobs here and earning good wages and people like them is better than you.WHO ARE YOU TO SAY WHO STAYS AND WHO GOES I havent met such an assh*le in such a long time, who comes on and talks about other people, you've got a job quit crying. Now let me tell you something when the poles were coming and working here at the time of the celtic tiger there was no complainting, But when the recession hits and the government rises the prices,tax and vat which scares people to spent money it hits rock bottom, remember the republic of ireland was one of the poorest countries in the world till it joined the EU.

i KNOW A GROUP YOU SHOULD BE JOINING combat 18 will help you, but the provies came knocking on your door that would be your fault

I am an Irish citizen and my views on immigration from eastern europe are shared with 66% of the Irish population who want much stricter immigration controls from Eastern European accession states.(source Irish Times)

Poland has given Ireland nowt, we owe them nothing.

Those same companies moved on when the money dried up and you know that. They go where the funding is, bleed it dry and move onto the next countries joining the EU.

They exploit the opportunities offered by EU and leave white elephants behind them whilst taking advantage of tax loop holes along the way.

The one thing that you seem to miss is that Poles are in Ireland legaly and are receiving
all the benefits that they are entitled to according to the Irish law.

If it is the will of Irish people to change that law, then I guess the law will be changed
and they will not receive any benefits anymore. It is in your power to enforce that kind
of law but until then it's simply pure nonsense.

I don't understand what do you mean by "repatriated" or "sent back". Do you realize
how ridiculous that sounds? Whatever you do you have to act according to the law
and there is no law allowing to "send back" citizens of one EU country to another EU
country en masse against there will.

Anybody can be deported from Ireland if they have no means to support themselves and a burden on the state or are involved in crime. Many Roma gypsies are deported back to Romania from Ireland, a fellow EU state.

I find it strange that a Pole is lecturing me about my governments rules and regulations, tell that to the Poles who immigrate here they all claim they left because of their government. Tell them to stay and change the government and to improve their own native land.

They are not needed or wanted in the Irish nation.

Congratulations Torq on hitting the nail firmly on the head. The Poles are doing nothing wrong. It is the system that is wrong. Benefits in Ireland are too high even in comparison to the north of Ireland. If I had a choice.......250 euro a week on dole in Ireland......Id stay too.

Case closed. Sack the government, burn the flag, mobilise the people and let anarchy prevail.

Well, if Poles are receiving social benefits LEGALLY then they do have means
to support themselves.
The criminals or fraudsters are a different matter and of course such individuals
should be deported.

they all claim they left because of their government

Say what? Some of them might not be very enthusiastic about the current
government but no Polish citizen was forced to leave Poland BECAUSE of the
government (well, not after 1989 anyway).

They are not needed or wanted in the great Irish nation.

LOL

I see that you've switched into a w*nker mode again. I admit it was quite amusing
at the beginning but now it's getting pretty boring to be honest.

The dole is something like £40 in the north, People on the border and other areas is working in the north and claiming the dole in the south and vice versa but you are not complainting about that

You studied business, well done. You have a Polish girlfirend, I wish you all the best.

The numbers immigrating here are unsustainable, the Polish community claim that there are up to 500,000 Poles here. It is an invasion. That is the equivalent of every Irish national in Ireland emigrating to Poland.

The government is finished, once a general election is called, they will be gone. We will have to rectify many of their mistakes. The first one on the list should be eastern europeans having free access to our labour market. It can be done by a stroke of a pen in Brussels.

the only peoples fault ireland is in such a state is the government

Go to the top of the class Deano..... another man who enjoys hitting nails on the head.

Governments make the decisions. People put them into power, well at least those who choose to vote (something again we fought dearly for). Be careful who you vote for but always vote....... nothing more hypocritical than someone who doesnt vote and then complains about the governement running the country.

Vote early and vote often !!

You have posted a lot of links....let them stand for the moment. I have been asking about net contribution to the economy. It’s very easy to make negative assumptions and back them up with unexplained stats, much more stretching to look at the bigger picture.

The only new plantation is in your mind.

I do not agree with any form of benefit fraud that empies the purses that the tax payer filled. I would like to make that very clear Deano.

They stand for themselves. 1.5 billion sent home per annum. Over 125 million euro spent teaching foreign children English. 50,000 Poles claiming 204 euro a week dole. Over 3,000 Polish families claiming rent allowance(900 euro poer month). 30 million euro sent home to Poland as child allowance for children not even resident in the state. Add to all this that anyone under 25,000 euro per annum( the majority of Polish immigrants) do not pay a cent in PAYE tax and only a couple of euro in PRSI.

They are a burden on the state.
