Yeah, or at least did with me this month.

@Hitch apparently the memory foam mattresses retain heat which can make them uncomfortably hot for some. I think latex ones are less problematic for heat, but still more so than spring.

As Big Mickey said to me "Mattresses are the biggest racket out there". When I was testing them out I couldn't distinguish between most of them by lying down for 5 or so minutes. I think the only aspect I could discriminate between was firmness. Difficult to switch off the more expensive = feels better psychological filter though, and I bought the most expensive one in the shop.

I was told something recently about a certain colourful figure and a certain "accidental" fire at a place he had and a certain insurance claim.

Anyway, are we all joining our newest party Identity Ireland?

If they had gone down to the nearest rank and interviewed some random Irish taxi driver you would have got a more coherent vision of why we should leave the EU, print punts and close our borders.

Smashed my Oneplus One screen on a fucking golf course. It dropped out out of my pocket on part of the .0001% that isn't grass. Grrrr.

Looked at there site and some stuff makes sense.
Proper border and deportation policies are a bedrock of successful societies
Return of full border control from the European Union
An end to mass immigration and a return to natural controlled immigration
Zero tolerance approach towards demands to alter national life, culture and traditions to accommodate minority held beliefs and cultures.
Economic migrants must be capable of supporting themselves when looking for work. If migrants become incapable of supporting themselves they should be offered short term social assistance depending on how long they have worked (if they have worked). Once this ends they should be deported.
Only citizens should be able to access full social assistance
Immediate deportation of all illegal and criminal migrants

Mass immigration creates greater competition for scarce employment, puts pressure on social systems and can create cultural division and conflict.
Identity Ireland aims to return to a system of natural controlled immigration which is practiced by most of the countries of the world as this is the best policy for our society.

If you commit a crime then you should be shipped back home hard to disagree with that.
Its not racist to have a sensible immigration policy.
Australia Canada United States all have this.

We believe that the protection of citizens comes before the rights of criminals
Standard sentencing introduced across the board
Introduction of community service for non-serious offences
Two strike rule for the most serious offences
Prisoners work while incarcerated to offset cost of incarceration
Investment of money saved on prison costs invested into frontline Garda services especially in vulnerable rural areas
Introduction of measures to tackle anti-social behaviour

Irelands’ jails are being filled by those who have failed to pay fines while criminals often with over a hundred convictions are free to engage in criminal activity. Irelands sentencing system is also extremely haphazard.
Identity Ireland aims to readjust the criminal justice system to ensure that those who are a danger to society remain incarcerated and that fair sentences are handed out across the board. Identity Ireland will ensure that no area of the country is left vulnerable to criminality due to lack of GardaŪ

The law and order think seems about right as well.


Economy.


Jobs and prosperity can only be created by retaking full control of our economy
Return to the punt
Regain control over all natural resources
Strong investment in primary industry
Creation of new export markets in countries such as China, Brazil to absorb increased productivity
Build three new pumped-hydro storage dams to slash cost of energy and imports and create jobs.
Scrapping of austerity measures such as U.S.C. and water charges funded by increased economic activity
Creation of citizens bonds to help fund recovery. Bonds only available to those living in Ireland. This way dividends paid out will be spent in the Irish economy.
Slash the cost of government and end all unnecessary and wasteful quangos
Roll out high speed broadband nationwide

Ireland possesses an underdeveloped primary economy with strong potential for productive growth. In order to unleash this potential Ireland must first of all regain complete control over its economic affairs including our currency and our resources.

Identity Ireland will invest in the underdeveloped areas of our primary economy in order to not only create jobs and extra taxes but also to regenerate rural Ireland and end mass emigration. Increased productivity will lead to a greater tax take and will allow us end all austerity measures.
Economy stuff is bit bananas all right.

Europe.
We gave up our soverign status when we cap hand had to be bailed out
Thin the europe policies are shocking poor as well.


A complete return of sovereignty to Ireland from the E.U.





The creation of a new Europe of sovereign, co-operating nation states





Abandonment of the Euro and return to the punt





An end to European Union policies which attempt to undermine national sovereignty and identity through multiculturalism and mass immigration.


The modern E.U. which replaced the old European Community has helped wreak havoc on the European continent through a combination of terrible economic policies, terrible social policies and unaccountable, autocratic eurocrats.

Identity Ireland wants to return to a Europe of co-operation and end the autocratic rule of the modern E.U. which has helped bring Europe to its knees and created conflict and division right across the continent.

In fairness some of the policies seem ok others a re a joke but they will probably be branded some type of nazi party.
I think secretly there is a level of support for a party like this but you certainly wont have people admitting it.
In times of hardship history has proved that alienated members of society will vote support for policies politics outside of the norm.
