The 'War' against drugs - Seems like the Gardaí aren't making much headway against a handful of well known families operating happily in a relatively small area - sure there's the odd arrest but its hard to believe that enough is being done when these guys are swanning around living MTV cribs lives with no visible source of income. Surely there are 101 external telltale signs when local yobs run a drugs empire from a couple of suburban housing estates???
City Council. Wouldn't it be nice if someone gave them a hand? Maybe a few basic pointers on City management, how not to further destroy the City etc.
Basic policing on our streets and suburbs. Some impartial 3rd party needs to assess this over the space of a month or so. I doubt there are many first world Cities where 999 calls are simply ignored 'because we're busy ok?' Its fend for yourself out there and there is no deterrent or fear of repercussions for Scumbags as they are they only ones who bother to patrol our streets.
Limerick Regeneration - Why does this have to continue as a complete train-wreck and then fail utterly before the hard questions are asked? Surely its time to act now before all the money is gone and all that's left are lame excuses and the usual lack of culpability as the current crowd lounging around cluelessly in there walk away in typical Irish 'nobody to blame here' fashion?
- Whatever happens, if things remain on this course then the downward spiral is only going to accelerate.......
