Private health is something you pay for if you choose and it's available in Scandinavia too for example. Also, by using a private health provider you take yourself out ofthe public system thereby (in theory) freeing a place for a less well off person.

Private schools: poorly understood that the state provides the same per student subsidies to the private school as they provide to a public school. The parents then pay the extra. The private student gets what they are entitled to via parents taxes. Many parents sacrifice a lot, cars, holidays etc to pay the extra.

Your "everyone gets the same" has never worked. Even in north Korea.
In what specific way would ensuring that everyone, regardless of wealth, has access to the same healthcare and education 'not work'?

Since we're into summer season and festivals in full flow I would like to see the Irish camping music festivals bring in a law that all campsites are BYEco, in otherwards if you don't clean up after yourself you might be fined or something to that extent. The same with single day events like Slane and the like.

Slane


Electric Picnic

I would make It illegal for people to start sentences with 'listen or 'look it'.

I would fine people, especially TDs who speak like Bertie's Dis and Dat.

All adults who use upspeak e.g. Miriam O'Callaghan, Brendan what's his name and many many more.

With attack dogs, batons, rubber bullets and teargas. A few kicks in the hole might be worth adding into the mix to keep it interesting.

I'd change the welfare system . It rewards people for having lots of kids and their parent/ parents are to lazy to work . My friend is paying 1300 a month rent for a small 2 bed apartment. He has 2 kids and a girlfriend. The banks will only lend him 180,000 which won't buy you anything. He hasn't missed a months rent in 4 years and the mortgage loan he wants ( 280,000 ) is less than the rent he's paying .

Across the road from his apartment are two families living in nice semi detached houses. They don't work , have 5 or 6 kids each and pay for nothing. Anytime I see one of the women she's always in her pyjamas. Now how is that system fair?? One person is breaking his b@llix working and is worse off than the person who does nothing expect fire out babies for a living.

Yes I'd agree with that too, but I think it's unfair that layabouts/bums get things to easy here .

ive spoken to many unemployed people, their lives dont seem all that great, i do personally believe the issues are truly with the entities ive mentioned above, but these are very intangible at best, so its becomes easier to simply blame the unemployed
