No middle eastern country ever welcomed the Irish. The Irish never emigrated to Asia or Africa , not many to South America either – but we went out and built up America and Australia while we also migrated to our former country , the UK.
There is no racism in Ireland compared to other European countries- FACT.
The definition of racism is to regard your own race as superior to another race, I don’t see any of that anywhere here in Kilkenny, and I never heard of it anywhere else in Ireland either.
To want to house the queue on the Council housing list first, as I do, before anybody else coming in, is not being racist, it’s keeping your word of honour to all those people – 2,200 now on the Kilkenny County Council housing list – not to mention all our homeless. But ALL persons on the housing list are deemed homeless statistically.
Refugees are only entitled to basic shelter, not brand new council houses while 2,200 Kilkenny citizens languish on the Kilkenny Council housing list – if elected I intend to put a stop to all that and give our young couples a chance of a house near their own families here in Kilkenny or the country towns.
And if that is racism, I stand guilty.
Election candidate ,
HOUSE THE HOMELESS, GIVE THE IRISH A CHANCE!
