Now they want to make it illegal NOT to give away 100s of millions of Euros in Foreign Aid!

Yes Folks the latest 'brainwave' from certain members of our political class is to bring in Legislation that would FORCE us to hand over hundreds of millions of Irish taxpayers money each and every year

- no matter what the state of the Economy or the level of social services available to Irish Citizens.

Why oh why do we tolerate individuals like this

- who clearly hold us in utter Contempt!:|

Law binding State to set foreign aid targets ‘should be introduced’


Legislation which would bind future governments into meeting Ireland’s foreign aid commitments should be introduced with all-party agreement, a member of the Oireachtas Committee on Foreign Affairs has said.
Speaking at the launch of the committee’s review of the Irish Aid programme, Deputy Sean Barrett called for all-party agreement in the passing of legislation that would “set targets, real targets, so that irrespective of a change of government, these targets would have to be met”.
“Until that happens we are always going to have temporary bumps,” he said.
The review called on the Government to introduce “a multi-annual plan to increase the aid budget on an incremental, phased basis”.
It said “a firm commitment to achieving official development assistance expenditure of 0.7 per cent of GNI [gross national income] by 2030” was “critical to the future of overseas development”.
Keeping promises
Committee chair Brendan Smith TD said it was “vital that Ireland continues to keep its aid promises to partner countries”.


And the cherry on the cake:

Concern chief executive Dominic MacSorley said the review “shows why the Irish public can continue to feel truly proud of our aid programme”.

What we should be doing is drastically cutting our Foreign Aid programme

- and spending what is saved in improving the welfare of Irish Citizens

- after all

- its our money....

EDIT

It should be noted that Dominic here pulls a whopping circa 100,000 euros a year for his efforts on our behalf!

If he was so 'Concerned' about the plight of the World's poor

- then why doesn't he live on the Average Industrial Wage

- and donate the rest to the Charity he runs....

Think of the silver lining, Count:

If the money is sent off out foreign, they'll stop invading Blanchardstown.

More virtue signalling to our globalist masters from our selfless politicians. What's not to like?

We don't address those problems because people keep voting for FF FG without them addressing those problems. We are literally better off just collecting tax into a big pile and burn it would have the same outcome as giving hard earned money to these people and we would get a big bonfire.

Ireland spends 647 millions euros per year on Foreign Aid and 6.3 BILLION on booze.

That is why OP sounds pissed all the time.

Prescisely.

Foreign aid to be spent in parts foreign filled with brown people who would like to come to Blanchardstown to get their hands on Irish cash.

This way the cash goes to them direct meaning that there's no need for them to come to Blanchardstown at all.

This is a win/win situation we have here.

Do try and keep up.

They'll only waste it in the bookies, fags, sky sports and booze.

Have you a factual basis for this hypothesis?

The thoughts that we might be giving money to poor people really seems to infuriate some people.

You are not forced to spend your money on Drink

- you are forced to contribute to the Foreign Aid Programme

If people want to donate to Charity well and good

- but taking out of peoples pockets is all wrong.....

Are you on the Gin already...?

Expenditure of public monies and private monies are two different things. The OP is about the former not the latter.
The OP thinks that money will end up in his pocket, instead of pissed out of a Galway Race Track tent.
