Subject: RE: BS: UK immigration too high?
I was told by a hotel owner in Dingle Ireland that the Poles are skipping England and coming to Ireland because the benefits are more.

Interesting sort of statement given the fact most of the hospitality industry in Ireland runs on underpaid Eastern European labour.

It's also not true, around 200.000 Eastern Europeans, mostly Poles, left Ireland after the boom was over and work got scarce.
