Politicians know little of emigration

I live abroad but try to keep up with the Irish political situation as much as possible through newspapers, radio and chatting with my family on Skype.

But the one question I have never heard anyone ask a politician of any stripe in Ireland is: How many members of their immediate family have had to emigrate due to the horrific collapse of the economy?
