Poll shows hardening of attitude towards immigrants

THE VAST majority (72 per cent) of people want to see a reduction in the number of non-Irish immigrants living here, according to an Irish Times /Behaviour Attitudes opinion poll.

Overall, a total of 43 per cent say they would like to see some, but not all, immigrants leave the State, while 29 per cent would like to see most immigrants leave. In contrast, just over a quarter (26 per cent) would like to see the number of immigrants remain as it is.

In a reversal of trends from polls in recent years, younger people’s attitudes towards immigration have hardened the most.

And the government wont give a dam what we think, it is all designed to drive the Irish out of Ireland to make Ireland become more multi cultural , a lot of us have decided that in the next short term we will go abroad to live and work this will leave a huge population void in Ireland and give the government an excuse to keep the failed asylum seekers here and also bring others in , this will break down the Native Irish and make us more muti cultural, it is all a huge plan that the EU is working towards , every treaty is designed to take a little part of our laws away from us and place them in Brussels, after the lisbon treaty we have lost more than 60 % of irish laws.in a few years we will see another treaty and they will tell us that it is good for us when in fact it only damages Irish laws and takes control away from us.

For the record the figure of laws coming from the EU was over 80% even before the Lisbon treaty was passed.
