Hope you are all suitably refreshed after your Easter break? First, your homework. You will have to read this before the show starts:
A fractured society, a weak economy and persistently high unemployment do not constitute real recovery | Social Justice Ireland
… and don’t skimp, I’ll be checking later that you’re read it!!

Anyway, it’s another Vincent-with-his-social-hat on type of show as they discuss the document which claims that the Government is creating a '"fractured society". Is this true? If so, what needs to be done to stop this happening? Vinny’s panel teases out the pros and cons. …

Yes.

But in fairness to this Government, it started with the last. This one is just continuing the fracturing....

It's going to be some place to live in 10/15/20 years time if we keep going this way....

Fractured viewing figures - this show is going downhill faster than one of Vinnie's publications.

Good man Vinnie. Two vastly overpaid and underworked academics to explain the nature of our fractured society. Nothing like getting the experts in i suppose.

Who else has he on, Sean Dunne?

It must be food for thought to the likes of Sean Healy that a benefit cap has come in, in England.

This govt had a chance to show they were on the side of the irish people, instead they choose the same route as the ff scumbags, they are even worse in my book they promised they would do things differently, liars.

Probably on holidays. :)
Of course he's on holidays. In Tuscany no doubt. Pity, nobody on 150k per annum for 4 months work knows more about the unequal society we are faced with.

For a supposed business man he hasn't a clue, we should write off the young couple's with negative equity.........we can't even afford the people who can't pay their mortgages, never mind the ones who don't like where they live anymore.....
