Cowen to lose just €7,500 from €150k pension

FORMER Taoiseach Brian Cowen is facing a cut of about €7,500 in his yearly pension as the notorious bank guarantee scheme his government introduced is scrapped.

THE scheme to guarantee the State’s teetering banks, introduced in September 2008, will end for all new liabilities at midnight on March 28.

The cost to the State of bailing out the guaranteed banks is estimated at €64bn.

Finance Minister Michael Noonan said the ending of the scheme marked “significant progress” in “breaking the negative link between the banks and the State.”

Ending the scheme will remove €73bn of contingent liabilities from taxpayers.

The Eligible Liabilities Guarantee (ELG) covers AIB, Bank of Ireland and Permanent TSB, but will not impact the Deposit Guarantee Scheme, which covers ordinary depositors up to €100,000 per customer per institution.

This terrorist, who along with his incompetent (at best) finance minster brought about the collapse of our economy,. He and the rest of the gangsters are been paid pensions whilst thousands of ordinary citizens are struggling to put food on the table, struggling to find a job to hold on to their dignity and this creep is allowed to collect this lottery pension ???

Where the justice or moral justification in this??? .This is not right and should not be tolerated!

We the people must get up off our knees and put a stop to this madness regarding corrupt politicians, gangsters and outright traitors. Al- Capone was an angle compared to the gangsters who now control our Unions, Government and the Judiciary. The crooks are in control!!!!

This latest round of insider deals is nothing more than, the crooks that are running the country are looking after themselves and we can expect to get another round of Austerity measures to be  forced on to the shoulders of the ordinary people who have no way of fighting against these self serving So called public servant leaches who are milking us dry!

These Gangsters should be in Jail!

People of Ireland –Get up of your knees!

measurementThis is an expanded version of the “Left Field” column published in the Irish Times.Over the last couple of years there has been a growing feeling amongst all stakeholders – government (supposedly representing the people), the administration (Department of Education and HEA), and the higher education sector that there is an increased scrutiny on what exactly academics do. Nobody is quite clear where the impetus comes from, just as nobody is quite clear what it is that the answer might be.Much of the heat has come on the issues of contact hours and how much research (and of what kind) is of any “use”. Some consider that universities and indeed all third level is merely secondary shcool for adults, and that time spent in the classroom, sorry, lecture theatre, is the only thing that is worth rewarding. These usually also show breathtaking ignorance about the process of scientific investigation, with…

Enda Kenny and Michael Noonan and their poodle Union Boss pull a fast one on the oppressed families of Ireland!

By Thomás O Cléirigh


This deal does not include his perks and lottery pensions he is going to get as a Teacher and Government minster. What about the pensions of the gangsters in the Banks who brought this disaster on us. The X CEO’s, and the X self-serving Politicians who are now still sitting on these boards?

This Deal is again a smoke screen which gives the likes of Jack O Connor the chance to tell his members he did something for them. The Unions have sold out the rest of Irish society to the “Austerity for all Brigade” except for the people who are in a position to fend off the spineless puppet Governments attempt to foist ever more cuts and stealth taxes on the working class of Ireland.

No My Friends this deal was done in the backrooms a few weeks ago and we are experiencing a well rehearsed drama that is intended to cater for the dumb Union members who continues to pay lottery salaries’ to the well connected Union Bosses who have lost touch with their roots. This deal will ensure the ordinary working man and woman will pay dearly for the outrageous salaries and perks of a class that is totally out of touch with the ordinary citizen of Ireland .The Top 20,000  highly paid civil servants people who are earning immoral salaries, while hospitals and child care will have to be cut further to accommodate these public servant leeches : There is a two tier society in Ireland and the Government has ensured that our people will continue to be divided as they plough through their “Austerity steam roller “through our democracy ,keeping themselves and their vested interests gorging on the gravy train they have kept intact while dispensing to the masses the crumbs that falloff their tables.

No change then as gangsters and crooked politicians and Union mafia bosses extract more blood from the ordinary families of what is now, signed sealed and delivered financial slaves ( the Irish citizens of the BA-NAMA-Republic of IRELAND to our bondholder masters.

If you have any ounce of credibility in you citizen get up off your knees and say no I will not pay anymore into the coffers of hidden faceless moneymen who have stolen our country with the help of the mafia union bosses and the puppets in Lenster house.

Time for a people’s revolt against the financial slave traders in the Dail .

img_pod_2402-olli-rehn-news-conf-RTR2YAW5This morning on Morning Ireland there was an interesting interview with Ollie Rehn, the EU commissioner for economic affairs. He dismissed the notion of coordinated austerity as being a problem, dismissed the ruination of the social compact, and generally displayed a chilly technocratic aloofness that shows the paucity of leadership we have now. He even invoked confidence fairies in regard to Italy…. He was asked repeatedly what was the aim of the continued austerity programme, now that we had some headroom from the “resolution” of the anglo promissory notes. He, not surprisingly, rejected the calls for slowing down of the process. He repeatedly stressed that the aim here was to enable Ireland to “return to the markets”, in other words to exit the troika programme and to borrow on our own account.

On his webpage he states his aim as “The first and foremost priority for me as Commissioner…

John McManus has a column in today’s Irish Times which comments on the report produced by the UK’s Competition Commission last Friday on the so-called Big Four accounting firms – Deloitte, Ernst and Young, KPMG and Pricewaterhouse Coopers. The online version of John’s column omits a table referred to in the body of his piece, and it seems like a very useful piece of information, so it is being reproduced here. Separately the UK Competition Commission press release from last Friday is here and its report for the UK is here.

The Irish Times has a listing – not available online that I can see – called “Top 1,000 Auditwatch” which presumably shows the auditor of the Top 1,000 Irish businesses. And this is what the table below is based on. The second column, “volume” appears straight forward, for example PwC audits 219 out of the 1,000 biggest companies…

The Union bosses are the mafia that keeps the government in power

By Thomás O Cléirigh


The Union bosses are the mafia that keeps the government in power and not the troika .These wolves in sheep clothing are nothing more than the real collaborators doing the biding of the faceless moneymen that allow the union bosses to extract enormous funds from their members and suck the country dry as they or their pals sit on the various guanos boards of course for hefty fees. The Union bosses are taking salaries equivalent to the Minsters of government and they have the perks and pensions to match. These sell-outs have betrayed the workers and the Irish workers are still like sheep following these leaches as they milk the insider system for all they can get.

Workers of Ireland wake up don’t you see these union bosses are part of the problem and are in no way going to rock the boat. They are out for themselves! Get out of these unions or kick out these puppets of the Labour party now.

These same union bosses have stood ideally by as our health services were  dismantled ,over the last 5 years they have done nothing for the ordinary man in the street they have watch and done nothing as new taxes were imposed on families to pay for private debts of corrupt bankers .These unions are nothing more than puppets of the political system , a extra insurance the government of the day has against workers going out on to the streets and demanding true democracy just like they have in Iceland. We need people power and not hidden planted insiders who run the unions on behalf of the government of the day.

The unions have abandoned the unemployed and they are out to keep themselves in their plumb top jobs! It is totally immoral that workers should be accepting Austerity while these sell-outs continue to pay themselves lottery salaries. When I hear of old folk dying in each other’s arms because they cannot afford to heat their homes I say it’s time to take the fight to the streets and kick these leaches off our backs now .Every decent worker should down tools and go on a general strike with or without the unions now. No more Austerity do as Iceland did tell the Government and their Union insider pals to get stuffed we don’t need their permission to take back our country from gangsters!

Have you ever wondered why Irish workers are not joining other European Workers in demonstrating against the imposed austerity that is paying the gambling debts of hidden faceless moneymen?

Simple: The union bosses are bought and paid for by the real power brokers who rule over us now!
