How da you know dey are all 'Dubliners'?? It's free food - line up.

Nobody looks too underfed to me in that queue - dare says there's a few beer bellies there as well :)

This photo is from a more discreet angle. Tough enough for people queuing for food parcels without the Irish Times splashing their faces all over the internet.

How many of them ACTUALLY need the free food? Are ye all that gullible? Its more a case I bet of "hey, free stuff. I'll have me some of that."

Grand as an image, but I always think these things fall down in the substance
Thousands queue for food parcels in Dublin city centre

The centre’s annual running cost is €3.3 million, of which €450,000 comes from Government.
That's, I'm sure, a good thing in itself. But it's insignificant compared to just the normal expenditure of the Department of Social Protection on income support
https://www.welfare.ie/en/Pages/Budget-2017.aspx

€19.85 billion to be spent in 2017 for 2.05m beneficiaries
including, incidently,
Christmas Bonus of 85% will be paid in early December to 1.2 million recipients
We can overdo the misery angle.

€450,000 a year is about one senior civil servants lump sum.

People on here poking fun at people who have to queue for hours for food says more about them than it does about the people in the queue.Beware of Karma,the very fact that some people in the queue dont look like there starving is a sign that these are the new poor.

Im nearly sure i saw our own Seannie Lemass at the top of the queue petunia
I bet you won't see many of the 4000+ "quickie" bankrupts queuing for food - they all seem to busy getting back into the game and starting to make money again now that the government has let the cost of building new homes spiral out of control.

In case that was directed at me, I did not make my statement based on how people in the picture looked. It was more a comment on the Irish people in general. I actually don't see where you might find any "poking fun at" in my post but there ya go. This is p.ie after all.
