Wicklow Town Cinema

At the last local elections in Wicklow some of the now elected councillors promised to do something about the derelict cinema building

I suppose those promises were just that, empty promises that were easily forgotten along with all the rest of them!

That’s what you get when you don’t vote for change!

It is quite shocking to hear we had two cinemas in Wicklow Town in the 1920,s

With 2,650 thousand people out of work in the town why it is not possible to re-open this building as a centre for the self help groups for the unemployed and as a centre of community activity

More and more shops are closing and new ones are not lasting because of the unrealistic overheads

Water charges, rates, rents and insurances

I suggest the county counsel should introduce a municipal insurance

An insurance that all the retailers and trades people pay into and the premium should be paid directly to Lloyds of London cutting out the middle man

This insurance should include public labiality and would reduce the costs enormously

Why the hell not???

This kind of innovative thinking is required if we want to get the town back on its feet again

New unemployment stats

Dr. Constantin Gurdgiev

Has wrote an excellent report on the latest unemployment statistics which clearly shows the Governments figures and expectations to be flawed to say the least

Take a look see! Link http://www.trueeconomics.blogspot.com/

The number of people signing on to the Live Register rose by 6,600 in May, the Central Statistics Office said, with the unemployment rate rising to 13.7 per cent.

The latest increase brings the seasonally adjusted total number of people receiving unemployment benefits to 439,100. The Live Register includes people who work part-time, and seasonal and casual workers entitled to Jobseekers Allowance or Jobseekers Benefit.

Observation Constantin!

There are approx 45,000 to 65,000 previously self employed, that are now unemployed but do not receive any unemployment benefits.

 As far as I know only those that are in receipt of benefits are classified as unemployed, and thus these people do not appear to be included in the statistics.
