Rats fleeing a sinking ship

I'm beginning to get a bit pissed off with all this talk of immigration. All these people are in effect abandoning they're communities, families and country, they're leaving this state to the corrupt money hungry "fat cats" that they're complaining about so much. Whatever happened to the fighting Irish, no ones prepared to make a stand for this country instead they flee with their tails between their legs.

Is it really the government that is to blame when we do nothing to stand in their way?

If somebody can't get a job here you can't really blame them for heading off somewhere else.
Although, I kind of see where you;re coming from. I get annoyed by those who get their free education here (I know there are reg fees etc before anyone points it out) and then shag off and complain about how sh*t Ireland is and how great it is in Canada, Australia, Baghdad...

I blame after hours, when people complain here, someone responds saying "if you don't like living here then leave"......I think these people have been following the advice

If I chose to go to another country to find work, I am considered a traitor? I am abandoning my country, community, family and friends? Fcuk that, I am not sitting on my hole waiting for work to land on my lap, nore am I going to sit around this kip to wait for the government to act on the job crisis and do their fcuking jobs. I'm out of here as soon as I possibly can. I just hope my plans work out.

That's the trouble at the moment, people don't know whether they're coming or going.

This has been happening for 200 odd years now, the last couple of decades bucked the trend for a little while but now we're back to normal.
