Ireland - 2nd most charitable country in the world.

Of course, this story has been ignored on Politics.ie because it portrays the country in a good light.

Leaving that aside, it's remarkable how generous people here still are with their time and money in this country - despite the current economic difficulties. Personally, I find myself buying a charity scratch card or donating to an on-street collection almost every day.

We're the second most generous in the world and the most generous in Europe. We're the most generous in the world in the "giving money" category.

So, as Christmas approaches, let's be positive and give ourselves a big pat on the back.

Why that's nothing new. The Anglo Bondholders have known that for years.

Charity begins at home, start looking after yourselves and leave the foreigners to look after themselves.

What's this got to do with foreigners?!

Biggest charities that the Irish people give to are charities that mainly operate outside the state.

The state itself will have to borrow €700 million to give to foreign despots who will more than likely line their own pockets first.

The Government is robbing the people of basic services and reducing benefits, so that they can put us in more debt to help foreigners.

How does that compute with you?

Some amount of sour fukers on this forum. Glad to see the general Irish public are not as bitter.

There are some thick fukers on this forum, far too many of them.

There is a thread on the board about how the top people in charities get paid more than 100,000 euro.

Very charitiable to themselves for sure.

If Irish people have spare cash, spend it on charities that help children or those dealing with cancer and disability.

O Wise One, you're confusing overseas assistance with charity. How many NGOs give directly to 3rd world governments?

Yeah, there are some thick f---ers who don't understand that there's way more to charity than giving money.

Perhaps you'd like to sneer at the volunteers too?

Are these not the things we pay our taxes for and which should be provided by our lousy state?

Start supporting charities at home to the extent you suggest, and the 'state' will get even lazier and shirk even more responsibility, safe in the knowledge that taxpayers aren't only paying their taxes, but are also supporting the shortfall in services the state fails to provide...

What really needs to happen is for us to start holding our rotten 'establishment' to account.

Who pays for the charitable donations (think about it)- the idiot taxpayer, like they pay for everything that isnt borrowed - dont forget the interest...
