• The Polish interview of February 2 left me speechless. It was about a polish woman getting welfare in Ireland and also looking for a job.
Magda, not her real name, has been on welfare for two years. She starts her day by going to the beach to watch the sunrise.
This, she says, energises her for the day. "I used to sleep," she says, "until noon, now I don't want to waste my life."
