The current Irish Government are responsible for the financial disaster the country is in,
With the establishment of NAMA the Government is trying to socialize the enormous losses that the Banks and their Developer buddies have encored.
Corruption is rife and now a new monster burocratic system is being created, where X politicians will have jobs for life and the same corrupt developers will be able to manipulate the housing market all over again
While the people are being robbed of their homes, savings, pensions, and education for their children, that same gangsters are running the country
This has to stop!
Join the CAB to-day and get things moving
Come on! Get active in your own area now!
We as a country need new faces and not the same old tired faces that have being around using the system to suite themselves.

The Minister for Finance, Brian Lenihan, has said the issue of Oireachtas expenses had to be put into perspective.
Mr Lenihan was speaking after the Chairman of the Audit Committee of the Houses of the Oireachtas Commission, Tom O’Higgins, said his proposals to reform the system governing expenses for TDs and Senators were ignored by the commission.
Mr O’Higgins explained why he resigned in a letter which was disclosed to the Irish Times following a Freedom of Information request.
These guys will have to be brought kicking and screaming from their lucrative expenses rip-off
They have shown yesterday their total contempt of the taxpayers of this country by showing their support for the disgraceful behaviour of the CEANN Comhairle John O’Donoghue
It comes as no surprise to me that Mr.O Donoghue walks away with a (see Link) lavish payoff
Again curtsey of his pals on the same scam!

WHAT filthy, grotesque, unprecedented and bizarre revelations about John O’Donoghue must Irish citizens be subjected to before some appropriate action is taken?
The obscenity of this ongoing news story (and others regarding golden handshakes at FAS) is only surpassed by the total absence of leadership from the Government. Labour are suggesting the Ceann Comhairle may consider paying back some of his expenses, while Fine Gael ”think that the Ceann Comhairle might like to consider his position”. The Greens think there should be a total review of Government expenses but this again ignores the current elephant in Leinster House.
Meanwhile, our leader Brian Cowen appears cloaked in a deafening silence of indifference. He dare not speak of the office of Ceann Comhairle for fear of the skies opening above him and a lightning bolt from the heavens removing him from his tower of babble. It’s beginning to look like the Ceann Comhairle is not really from the Kingdom of Kerry but from the Kingdom of Narnia: a magical and special place where all is not what it seems. Leadership is what leaders do. Leaders lead by example. Leaders continually challenge the status quo. Leaders seek not just to fix what is broken but to envision a better future where the same source of the problem cannot re-emerge. Leaders go beyond fire-fighting. Leaders firstly put the fire out.
Then, they investigate its source and then, they creatively consider and implement actions to prevent a similar fire from starting. It’s all common sense but common sense does not appear to be very common in Dail Eireann. We have all the usual Government suggestions rolling in: let’s have a meeting about it or let’s have a review of procedures or let’s ask the Ceann Comhairle to maybe think about considering his position?
We need leadership and we need it bad.
John O’Donoghue should not only be immediately removed from public office, he should be forbidden from ever holding public office again. Then, and only then, can the Government start fixing what’s clearly broken.
This is appalling stuff why are we even allowing this kind of crap even to go on, John O’Donoghue is dictating to the Dail what is to be done about lavish expenses and will come up with proposals for change! He’s having a laugh!
This demonstrated just how out of touch the entire body of politic in Ireland is out of touch with the reality of ordinary people trying to make it through every day in this depression
The likes of O Donoghue and the rest of the leaches in the Dail, Top civil service & Top Bank oficcials, Doctors, Union Bosses all are living in “The twilight zone”
Where there is no rescission or depression and somebody else pays your bills for you all the time
These entitlements or perks, that have being self awarded, have built up un checked over 70 years, to these select few individuals in the public pay.
This culture is in every facet of oficcialdom in this country
I remember in the 1980 when a change of government came about I was working in a well known Dublin Hotel we were getting some building work done and it so happened that the developer we were using was the same builder a particular government new Minster was using to spouse up there government office the builder told me that they had just finished renovating the same office for the previous Minster a few weeks before and the new Minster wanted to completely change the entire office all over again because XXX did not like the colors ,this was a cost of 85 thousand pounds at that time
So you see it’s nothing new, what we need is for the Finance Minster to come out and cancel all perks and marks every item of expenditure, including all payments above normal wages must now be canceled period!
The wages for the job is the wage for the job and if anybody has a problem with that I will gladly take any one of their jobs for half of their normal standard wage with no extra perks
Everybody else had to pay only not us, this gent was quite happy to see other people lose their jobs and their pensions, get their dole money cut or even get nothing at all but when it comes to his own member’s civil servants. Servants of the people what a laugh, well let’s just say he and his members are living on a different planet that the rest of us!
In previous postings I asked the question where were the Unions when this government were imposing penal taxes on the most vulnerable ,those that have no voice , the self employed ,now most of us unemployed ,our pensions gone ,paying into the PRSI and then being told that we were entitled to nothing, no help from the state.
The fact is the union bosses have also lost touch with the ordinary rank and file of the members
Their salaries are ten times the average industrial wage and a multiple of the ordinary member’s wage.
Yes these Union bosses could embarrass the King of expenses accounts Mr Jonny CASH
Ceann Comhairle O’Donoghue
Where on a daily bases we here people who are being paid huge salaries from the state tell us that we must pay more taxes and pay for the bail out of fat Bankers, corrupt politicians fiddling their bolted expenses and civil servants help themselves to whatever funds they want all taken from the public purse
For God sake , stop these vested interests stealing the families silver or is it too late ?
Can you believe the Brass Neck of this guy, he is completely out of touch with reality
He is so full of his own importance his head is so far up his you know what !
This should be a reality check for everyone, giving a life line by voting for the government in the Lisbon 2 treaty, is only going to prolong the likes of this sort of self-service instead of public service
This leach is will go on with his snout in the trough until the Irish public wake up and put an end to it by kicking out this corrupt government and the best way now is to vote NO in the Lisbon treaty
A No vote will force the government to call a general election
This is your chance to put a stop to this self service government
Vote NO to Lisbon 2
