Ireland's Wreckers --Cronyism And Fecklessness

Recommended Posts

The Irish government’s borrowings have been estimated this week as up to €90billion (almost £77bn) which is more than €25,000 (or £21,000) for every man, woman and child in the state.

And that's just the bail-out money.

And how did idiots like these get into these positions of power?

Yes, the Irish public happily put them there and kept them there through endless scandals.

Plenty of examples of crookedness throughout the decades in Irish politics - all tolerated by the electorate due to the parochial nature of Irish politics. People there need to wise up, maybe this is the wakeup call that finally gets through to the public.

An Irish tradition of flaithiúlacht, which means ruinous generosity, especially with someone else’s money.

Gord O'Brown knew all about that as well.

Good link Doccy. Such criticism in mainstream media. Interesting.

Re Adams - I am interested to see that the protestors we see on the television seem to be agents provocateurs from Sinn Fein. Their star could be in the ascendancy if they match the moral indignation of the public - even if you don't quite know what their policies are. Certainly he was towards the communist side of things in his youth - but that is probably acceptable for a man of his age.

Sinn Fein are communist.

Sinn Fein are communist.

Don't think so. Definitely socialist and violent, but not part of a supranational brotherhood. And they're explicitly anti-euro, and not too happy with the EU.

Today I was chatting with a lawyer about the Sinn Fein storming of the Irish parliament. This guy is up for selection as a tory candidate in local elections and speaks exactly like Boris Johnson. He said to me, "Well, on this one I'm with Sinn Fein all the way"! He found the prospect of the unravelling of the euro very tempting. And yet he sees no fault in the City banks or in the devaluation of sterling. I said the Irish banks should be cut adrift, with RBS taking the strain. "Chaos, man. Chaos!" He didn't want the unravelling to go that far.

Someone on this forum described what's going on as a great game of chess. Ireland should play suicide chess.

Here's another one that belongs in this thread I think. Again, coming from the MSM I find the following quote amazing:

What the people of Ireland and every country must realise is that if they agree to play by the bankers' rules, they will lose.

Corruption and greed.

The elites all over the globe have been troughing.

Problem is, they still are.

Throwing people into budget cuts, diminished jobs, axed services and slashed pensions etc. only saves enough to pay the interest payments on the bank bailout debt.

(The numbers tally almost exactly. Pick any country.)

Yeah, the shinners are anti-European and soft left - the IRPS and Eirigi are harder left. Eirigi were at the fore at those student demos. A relative in Ireland said her English neighbours have become adamant shinners cos they hate Europe. Some shinners are very socially conservative too, a bit like one nation tories.

HOW an incompetent ruling elite has betrayed hard-working communities and brought the country to its knees.

Ireland's a democracy...these idiots are the people's choice. We all get the politicians we deserve.
