The Government of Ireland plans to provide a 'training place' for everyone on the live register.
Saints preserve us! There are those in Ireland, we all know them, who wouldn't work if you pulled a machine gun on them. But the majority of our fellow citizens without jobs are decent people.
Maybe they might want to 'train' in some legitimate course, but to compel the involuntarily unemployed into some humiliating facade, in order to effectively 'cook the live register books' would be a travesty of justice.
