Hiring Fair 2010

Thousands queued for an exhibition on emigration at the RDS this weekend. Canada, New Zealand and Australia were recruiting skilled workers such as nurses, HGV drivers, speech therapists, tradesmen, engineers and the like. Is this not heartbreaking? Once again we lose our best and our brightest to other countries, but this time it's not because of the economic embargo on Ireland by England which destroyed our economy in the early years of Irish independence. No, the destruction of our economy this time was caused by our own government - still in power! - and our bankers and developers - still unscathed! Shame on Ireland - the sow who eats her farrow as William Yeats once said - and most of all on the Fianna Fáil party and the bankers who have brought us to this.
