Unelected Taoiseach Cowen

Unelected Taoiseach Cowen  

 has criticised what he called the pervasive negativity in the media about the Irish economy.

Commenting on the downgrading of the economy by Moody’s, Brian Cowen said the National Treasury Management Agency had made clear we are a very stable economy.

The international ratings agency, that helps investors assess investment risk, downgraded Ireland for a second time since the financial crisis began.

However, the agency has moderated its outlook for Ireland from negative to stable.

Moody’s downgraded Ireland’s sovereign bond rating to Aa2 from Aa1.

Moody’s Senior Credit Officer and lead analyst for Ireland Dietmar Hornung said the ‘downgrade is primarily driven by the Irish government’s gradual but significant loss of financial strength, as reflected by its deteriorating debt affordability.’

Rival agency Standard & Poor’s, which downgraded for a second time in April, has maintained a negative outlook for the country.

The NTMA, which manages the national debt, has said the downgrading of Ireland’s credit should not have an impact on the country’s debt.

The agency, which is having its monthly auction of Irish bonds tomorrow, said the rating decision was not based on any new information.

The NTMA’s Oliver Whelan said there were positive elements in the Moodys’ announcement.

Comment:

Mr.Cowen the National Treasury Management Agency’s assurances are worth nothing to the Irish public in light of the assurances from your predecessor Ahern on Irish house prices two years ago or the assurances the financial regulator gave on Anglo Irish Bank or on your own assurance on the cost of bailing out the big banks of this state

You have absolutely no credibility; neither does any state body that includes the central bank  

You have lied to the Irish people and brought us down on our knees to the altar of the foreign vultures

Thus ensuring that future generations will continue to be slaves in their own country

You and your cabinet swatters will have to face the people’s justice sooner or later
We need action on jobs and a general election now

Don’t believe Cowen’s lies!


The economy has reached a “turning point” with the worst now over, The Unelected  Taoiseach Brian Cowen said.

How many turning points have we now turned ? anymore and we will all get dizzy!

Get real ,things are getting worse! talk to the 556,000 now on the dole scrapheap!

Talk to the social welfare recipients, expected to live on a fraction of the money you and your band of gangsters in the Dial are creaming on expenses!

Tell that to the unfortunate sick citizens lying on trolleys and are been denied basic services in the hospitals of the country that you and the criminal Harney are still advocating more cuts for!

In an address to a Fianna Fail meeting in Athlone,Cowen said the challenge is to now move with confidence and ambition into a new phase of recovery and renewal. (This is just political tripe)

The Unelected Taoiseach said Ireland was returning to growth and seeing an upturn in confidence.

“While we face another difficult budget ahead,(Code for more social welfair cuts,an easy target) for the Irish economy the worst is now over,” he said.

Mr Cowen said creating jobs was the backbone of the Government’s economic strategy.

He said Enterprise Ireland was working to create 40,000 jobs over the next five years, (8,000 each year) which would lead to an additional 28,000 jobs elsewhere in the economy.

Don’t believe the tripe coming from this gangster; I cannot believe the figures coming from the so called poll either!

This gangster and his cronies in the Dail have plundered this country and he and the other economic traitors deserve to be hanged for what they done

People of Ireland do not believe the vested interests who own the national news papers

They are afraid of a people’s government one that will bring real hope for the futures of all of us now consigned to the scrap heap by Cowen and his band of gangsters

Don’t be fooled by cowen’s pals in the news rooms

Help get these, the real leaches off our backs!

Support the demonstrators outside the Dail next Tuesday at 19.00 hrs and let your voice be heard

we want a General election Now!

 

What if this oil spill was off the coast of Ireland?

 

If this had happened in Irish waters the Government would have told the nation that we were all responsible and we must all put our shoulder to the wheel and help stop this well from leaking any more of our precious oil .They would also blame the single mothers and the Unemployed for using up badly needed financial resources that would otherwise be spent plugging the well.

A call for a national bond would be made and everyone in the work would be made pay a new oil cleanup carbon tax levy and the Unions would tell the members that we have no choice as this is the only option for the country

Gormley would employ a few green pals to count all the dead fish and Ryan would call for a national day of mourning .Brian lenihan would go on national TV to tell us we must tighten out collative belts yet another two notches!
Bertie Ahern would look for another “Dig out” from his pals to help pay his levy!
Having got it he would then seek an exemption from the revenue on the grounds he was a struggling artist!
The Government would then blame the protesters of shell to sea for the disaster and have them all thrown into jail!

Former Taoiseach

FORMER TAOISEACH

 Bertie Ahern,

Has not yet decided if he will avail of tax-free status under the artists’ exemption scheme on earnings from his autobiography, his spokeswoman has indicated.

His decision will be taken at the end of the tax year and will be based on the profits, “if any”, of Bertie Ahern: The Autobiography.

Taking the decision on how much money will or will not be made is bizarre. The issue is not how much tax Ahern would save personally, but that he is attempting to keep the monies from the State at all. It is in no way different if the amounts not entering the exchequer coffers total €1 or €100,000.

This attempt to appear to be considering whether he or the State needs the money more – as if it’s right that it is his choice to make – is idiotic.

The very fact he claims he is mulling it over is a kick in the teeth to other taxpayers. Whether he makes a profit or loss on the book is beside the point. It’s an issue of right or wrong; does Mr Ahern believe he should claim the tax exemption or does he not? The amounts involved are wholly irrelevant.
