Arthur Morgan, SF TD, is reported by Politics.ie as criticising government decision to “change retail and planning guidelines so as to allow Swedish furniture giant IKEA open an outlet several times larger than current maximum permitted”. He raises several excellent points, one being that this is more to do with job transfer than job creation. Another is that Ireland does not need huge out of town facilities whose staff tend to be on minimum wage and that the loss of local jobs and local shops damages communities.
A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
