My wife, kids and I left over 2.5 years ago, we discussed this over the weekend and have to say while we didn’t want to leave, our lives are better by multitudes, we both had jobs at the time. I think that these politicians have a cheek to comment on people who have left, most did not want to leave but for the sake of their family and sanity, they have.

    If this pitiful little man really wanted to find out why our young (and not so young) are leaving the country in their droves he would make his way to the departure gates at Dublin Airport and ask them face to face. But we all know that this pathetic, spineless drain on taxpayers money has neither the courage nor the humility to come face to face with the people he and his party have betrayed. Crawl back under that stone Gimmemore.
