Are these the same supports that Fine Gael has done everything in its power to cut?
What you wrote above is yet another over-long waffle therapy session for you about why you hate poor people.
This has been a long pattern as regards your forum contributions. The idea of “personal responsibility” to you has only applied to the disadvantaged.
Your ideology is: deliberately neglect communities, throw them on the scrapheap and deny the very concept of social disadvantage. Then, when people end up in bad outcomes such as drug addiction, throw them on the scrapheap and demonise them.
And, of course, demonise those who provide much needed highlighting of social issues.
This sort of social Darwinian ideology has never moved beyond three words: “screw the bastards”.
It’s an ideology that has been a total failure wherever it has been employed.
That you would deny that drug addicts are not among society’s most vulnerable would be utterly laughable if it wasn’t so insidious.
