"One of the principal aims of the Dublin Regulation is to prevent an applicant from submitting applications in multiple Member States. "
So - what's your point ???
Ireland is run by people who share many values and differences to human suffering that put profit before people as do those running Britain
The Irish Government's opening the door to Vulture Capitalism, which has allowed firms like Goldman Sachs to buy up rented property and evict the tenants in order to gentrify and resell it for profit has led to a rapidly increasing homelessness problem
The difference in Ireland is that we have people prepared to take to the streets on behalf of the homeless and the less well off
I am constantly moved by the young people outside the GPO in O'Connell Street, permanently drawing attention to the problem
Would that the British Students return to their fondly remembered past protests
Of course, students in Britain have their own escalating problems thanks to higher education being a commodity to be bought rather than a natural right for all.
The more democratic P.R. voting system has prevented the worst excesses, but Ireland is suffering from a decaying capitalism, as is the rest of the world.
