New figures published on Thursday show 397,500 people have emigrated since Ireland’s financial crisis began in 2008, with most travelling to the UK, Australia and Canada in search of work.

Whew! I was worried for a moment there. You let the Irish in, pretty soon you lower your standards to allow Italians and Spaniards.

Don't worry about that. I don't know any Spaniard that would want to live in your shithole of a country :)

If an Irishman takes 6 minutes to emigrate, who then takes 54 minutes?

they never received tax money and they won't. It is part of their ethos - and one reason why they helped EVERYBODY in both world wars.

I was making fun of the translation. "Donations" and "voluntary donations" implying the first kind of donations weren't voluntary (which just happens to be what taxes are -- involuntary donations).

Spenden und freiwillige Zuwendungen

I don't know why they distinguished between the two. Maybe because certain types of companies can not tax deduct donations, but still give money OR maybe because sometimes you are court ordered to make a charitable contribution *shrug* and then there are the people putting in their will that all their belongings are given to the DGzRS - or ask that there will be no flowers etc at the ceremony but the money is given to them. *shrugagain*

Oh, OK, so it wasn't really a mistranslation. Interesting that they make a distinction.
