Maybe over a year ago, Marc MacSharry, made a comment in relation to the public and semi-sector state whose employees were working from home; let this blog, after some research, expand a little more. In the last two years people have made contact here, who work in the private sector, and have told me that they have no choice in the morning but get up and get to work or they have no money to Feed their Families. Yet people in Enterprise Ireland and other Government departments who claim they are working from home, are seen literally, walking along beaches from Portmarnock to Sandymount to Ballybunion and Enniscrone and nobody gives a Fuck. One woman spent 5 hours in south Dublin beauty saloon getting a make-over and literally laughing because she was been paid at this time by the Taxpayers of this country. Yesterday talking to one of Dublin’s top lawyers, he made a comment that the public sector have it every way; they have salaries, pensions and now they have the working from home fiasco where the Private Sector are on their own and don’t have any taxpayer hand-outs. I will close by saying that hundreds in the semi-state sector are literally pissing on the private sector, some are even playing golf and clocking into their work at the same time. Enough Said.

We import the vast majority of the things we need. To pay for those imports, we need to export. But EI’s mission has expanded, along with the number of programmes. Now much of EI’s funding is directed, through the Local Enterprise Offices, irrespective of whether target firms export. We’re a long way from the economy of 1998. In 1998 Ireland was hitting its straps as a base for American…
