Unfortunately these issues aren’t just a Dublin problem however whilst they could be resolved by various forms of cleansing governments in the west are too scared to crack down. Dictatorships generally aren’t so constrained and are more likely to ignore human rights and adopt a utilitarian approach. Rounding up the addicts and dealers and sticking them into camps isolated from the rest of the population would benefit everyone.

Dublin was historically a dirty industrial port city but nothing as bas as I saw yesterday.

Lockdown has finished it off though. What I saw yesterday was like something out of an apocalypse movie. First time I genuinely felt unsafe during the day on a Saturday on Dublins main streets

Gardai have zero respect from the public who see them as nothing more than revenue collectors for the government. Great for fining people but real crime? LOL

Saw a list of gangland murders in the 2000s in Dublin and 1 or 2 ended with prosecutions out of around 95 murders.

The civil service are just as bad. Unionised to the hilt and only care about getting pay rises with zero improvements in efficiency.
IT systems are out fo the Stone Age and have been shown up under this pandemic. Their disease reporting system couldn't handle more than 2000 cases per day ffs
