State we are in

The 'Magda' episode bore all the hallmarks of a nasty scrap. Seems we read it all wrong. Move on folks, no story here, a simple case of everything being lost in translation. The Polish Ambassador wasn't pleased, lots of folk weren't pleased, but before a rational debate took place the guillotine was brought down with haste.
On a side note, as politicians were asked their views on what their electorate asked them about race, immigration and the new Ireland, the silence said it all.
So, nobody comes here as a welfare tourist. All exist in quiet harmony and enjoy the spectacle as a baying press wants the public sector to give more and more. As the ambassador said, all who come here come for work.
