Survey says employee’s amongst worse in world for “Sticky Fingers “.

leave a comment »

According to the English Retail Research centre (as published by English Times  November ), irish employee’s are rated the most light fingered in Europe. The centre estimates that nearly 40% of all missing goods are taken by employee’s. The english are know for their honesty i’m sure.

Ireland however is ranked only  in actual shoplifting, you can find out who took that record here- World News. It’s good that we didn’t come first for that as well !! The poor state of the economy as well as low wages and the general malaise if politicians and solicitors can do it so can we mentality.

Don’t think it is good for the country to have a record like that, it could effect investment by foreign companies, employment and so on.

Do you think this report is justified are other nations more honest than the Irish or the Irish dishonest ??

Or is it a piece of “paddy-bashing”  by an English newspaper ???

Ireland Win & Lose, France goes to South Africa on controversial goal.

There you have it, Ireland says “bye-bye ” to   after failing to qualify after the “helping hand”  of Thierry Henry put France ahead. Certainly the referee and the linesmen fell down on not picking up on Henry’s handling of the ball, but some of the French players looked like they were offside as well. Another thing why wasn’t there a break after full time ? Ireland were clearly exhausted … Not having one suited the French. Still Ireland should have not left it all to do in Paris either, somewhat like doing all your revision for an exam the night before very stressful. The campaign for a replay was never a runner really was it ?
