    €2 per week increase ? That's embarrassing. What else have the government only spent €10m on lately?

    Told you there was stuff going on behind the scenes.

    Hmmm. I guess a lot of information that was classified Confidential has now been unclassified.

    Have we now reach a point of no-return for the current DF?

    https://www.irishexaminer.com/breaki...rs-939784.html
    https://www.irishexaminer.com/breaki...ow-938416.html

    Given the results of the survey, especially if expanded to the entire DF it looks like we can shut the shop is 2-3 years. This will meet the steady decline in the DF budget now at 0.2% of GDP when pensions are excluded. A few million here or there is now going to save the DF now. Any young person looking for a job is going to take one look at the DF and run. An organisation with no investment (shows the lack of government commitment and priority) and with a image of poor conditions especially initial pay. Why would they not run?

    You'd think with all the BREXIT nonsense on the horizon / border issues / potential border referendum that there would be much better pay and conditions on the way.
