Tax welfare payments. How's that for solidarity. Far too many people see themselves as 'outside' society. Tbf it's one reason why it's important now that politicians turn up at ribbon cutting.

I think wage growth in the next couple of years could hurt Sinn Féin on this. All signs are that we are heading for some big growth across quite a few sectors.

Re: Australia - The Hermit Kingdom

Hard and early hasn’t worked, you are in lockdown and are heading for world record territory.

Come back to us when you have your whole hospital picture completed and the costs of lockdowns are clearer. The “hard and early” mantra you adopted has faltered, and you are stuck for weeks more in lockdown.
