Welfare, we have had the long term situation for a long time. A far right approach of 6 months assistance (in the good times) and then cut it off would have had a far better effect.

Education ... Can't disagree.

The debt ceiling ... I think as Irish this is a huge issue for us going back to our days as a colony. We feel the need to own property and to be our own masters. As part of the Eurozone we lost that. My biggest disappointment in Kenny is that we didn't pull out of the Euro and go back to the punt.

Looking at Sinn Fein do you think far left will work?

Probably not because none of them have the steel or the vision to do the right thing.

What about supporting your local Pulic house and just drinking one pint less on a night out. Cheap drink is never a great idea, some people end up drinking alot more than they should, if anything i think they should be rising the price of the pint , in order to help people moderate there drinking.

Raising drink prices makes no difference. Most of the people you see paralytic drunk well still pay the high prices or will have more pre drinks at home.

It's the whole Irish attitude to drink that needs to change. I don't know why but we definitely have an issue with alcohol. Recently I was at a street festival in the UK. Nearly everyone had a can or bottle of wine in their hands and I saw nobody off-their-face drunk. There were kids and teenagers running around with bottles of Coke but none of them were sipping from WKD or Smirnoff Ice as is sui often the case in Ireland. It was refreshing to see people drinking because they enjoyed it and not because they needed to get pissed.

i agree that the attitude has to change, however, i really think that if we raised the price of alcohol in super markets and public houses, people could not afford to be off their heads, and might learn to respect alcohol and in turn enjoy it for what it is.

Nope, bollocks. Cigarettes are incredibly expensive, doesn't stop smokers.


An addict will pay whatever it costs to get their fix, the price is almost immaterial.

Prices are already rdiculously high compared to the rest of Western Europe.

I can get a can of decent beer here for 49 cent. Some discount beers can be bought for 1.70 per six pack of large cans!

And Germans are not wasted and completely off their faces 24/7.

Also we can drink pretty much anywhere, on the street, in the tram, on the trains....

People need to grow the fuck up and take responsibility for their own actions, the government is never gonna stop you from drinking nor should it.

Is this pub talk, or politics?

Fair point , but we have a differant attitude to alcohol in ireland than in germany.
i know we dont need a nanny state, but the amount of people i know who have been heavy smokers and are now trying new ways to give them up , simply because of the price is amazing. i do think we need to try something here to encourage people to respect alcohol, raising the price is just an idea.

My ideal bar however, will never exist because it would be too hard to keep in business.

Not even in a city with a population big enough to keep it open??

My ideal venue has clean toilets and 2am, is never more then comfortably full, and has tasteful music at tasteful volumes and places where you can escape into relative quietness from that music.

as it currently stands people don't seem to mind being shoved into overcrowded sweaty shit holes and have music blasted at them for 3 hours, as well as having to wait patiently for 10 minutes before being allowed to lose their voice shouting for a drink order.

Packing people in until safty regulations are compromised, having just enough bar staff to be constantly taking orders and bleach bombing the toilets only after the cattle have been hearded of home makes so much more money then actually treating customers with respect, and people take it, so what can you do?
