A View From Ireland

Recommended Posts

Hi

I've alwats felt Ireland is a year or two ahead of us, and a bit deeper in the mire too. Here's an excellent comment from the PropertyPin: http://www.thepropertypin.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=34363

"FG and FF will do whatever the IMF will tell them as long as they keep their land based politics alive, they are and always have been representing the new landlords. Social needs comes second in their thinking. Mostly if not all of FG FF have directly or indirectly through family landed in their backround. They'll let the economy run into the ground again and again. They'll tax you as you emigrate. The only real threat to their hegemony is possible removal of low corporation tax, after everything else that's their Fun Money. Sit on untaxed land, let the plebeians work in the factories, tax them highly and get back to the real game of promising new hurling pitches and pot hole fillings. Always keeping it local and making sure that any logic and thought is firmly denied, cried down, and twisted against their enemy.

RTE are the voice piece, they take cuts but they know they'll survive because the serfs accept the TV tax and expect to have their information masticated to avoid that ugly truth the many are just slaves of the few. Everytime the combined FF/FG vote is over 50%, which has been all the time, that's an endorsement of the Landlord first republic. We need a Citizen first movement to counter the Landlord party so that we may hope for an economy that works for everyone.

It's rash to think that the IMF will kill the landlords first party, that job is up to the voting citizens to propose an alternative to the gombeen man. If in the next election the combined FF/FG vote is over 50% then recent history will repeat itself."

Applies to the UK in a year or two? FF/FG = Tory/Lib/NuLab. RTE = BBC. Hurling pitch = Royal Wedding?

We've yet to see the sh*t hit the fan in Ireland methinks.

Same here. I sometimes wonder if the EU's/banks desperate/relentless push for Ireland to accept the bailout _now_ isn't because they know it's all about to blow up.
