Post Code Bigots

I used to think postcodes for Ireland would be a good thing, but now I'm not so sure. They might turn us into post code bigots (we have a minor form of it in Dublin already). According to the latest Eurobarometer survey on discrimination in Europe we Irish are totally cool with differences, but only up to a point.

Would we support a gay, disabled, black female in her late seventies for president? Yeah sure, whatever. Would we support a candidate from Moyross? Well now, hold on there...

  1. I don't want to call you a glass-half-empty fella, but apart from address and accent it seems we Irish consistently expect better behaviour from those who make hiring decisions than our EU friends.

    It suggests we are less ageist (and youthist!), less homophopic and less racist. This is a good thing. We'll even forgive you for looking a little bedraggled at the interview. God bless us - we're super!
