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!

We as a country need new faces and not the same old tired faces that have being around using the system to suite themselves.

Up to 25 bank directors will be forced out under the NAMA deal.
The Cabinet yesterday signed off on the latest draft of the laws to bring in the Government’s ‘bad bank’.
Ministers agreed on a way of sharing the risk between the banks and the taxpayer.
It includes a form of delayed payment to the institutions for their toxic loans. In a significant departure, Fianna Fail last night allowed the Greens to take credit for the changes to the NAMA bill.
Part of the package of measures to reassure the public is the removal of the remaining directors from bank boards, as revealed in the Irish Independent yesterday. The Greens’ demand on the introduction of new bank board’s was agreed in principle by ministers, but precisely how it will be done has still to be worked out. Communications Minister Eamon Ryan stressed that the removal of the directors would be “an orderly changeover” over the course of two years.
All non-executive directors of the banks participating in NAMA will, if appointed prior to 2008, be required to step down. That will affect up to 25 bank directors in AIB, Bank of Ireland, EBS, Irish Nationwide and Anglo Irish Bank.
Irish Life and Permanent directors will not have to resign as it is highly unlikely to apply to be covered by NAMA.
Mr Ryan indicated the Greens pushed hard with their Fianna Fail counterparts to get their proposals included.
And he hinted that his party will play a greater part in the broader development of government policy from now on.
A large number of directors of the banks have remained in place since the crisis began last September, at the time of state bank guarantee.
Many of the non-executive directors command in excess of €100,000 for sitting on the board.
The Greens are also claiming credit for a windfall tax of 80pc, on profits gained from increases in land value due to re-zoning decisions, to discourage property speculation.
The party is also saying it is responsible for linking planning changes into the NAMA process and bringing in new rules governing corporate practice in the banks. The junior coalition partners were allowed, by Fianna Fail, to announce the changes. The party has a meeting with its grassroots members at the weekend to discuss the NAMA legislation.
The Greens being giving a free run is a sign Taoiseach Brian Cowen is conscious of the need to keep his partners onside to prevent the Government from collapsing.
The Greens’ ministers will offer the cull of directors, the reassurances to the taxpayer and the planning changes as a sweetener to members to back NAMA. The second draft of the NAMA legislation will be published today.
Officials are still working on rules to force the banks to lend money to businesses after NAMA takes the toxic development loans off their books.
Meanwhile, Fine Gael called on the Government to publish the “NAMA 1,500” — the people that will be beneficiaries of the NAMA plan, so the taxpayer can see who is being bailed out.
FG finance spokesman Richard Bruton said at its core NAMA is a “secretive, tax-funded, politically directed work-out process for 1,500 of the most powerful, well connected business people in Ireland“.
The IBOA also has called for sweeping changes to the make-up of bank boards as the finance union give a conditional support for the Government’s ‘bad bank’ plan.

Mr Frank Daly
The Chairman of the commission on Taxation is in for a big pay day (Euro 1000 per Day)
this is on top of Mr.Daly’s pension of around €122,000-€125,000 — half his salary from his former job as head of the Revenue Commissioners. This fee for the Tax Commission is extra.
You would think that this man having lived off the taxpayers for most of his life, would now be available to do some real public service
No I’m afraid its show me the Money for Frank and his fellow spongers ,amongst them is no less, Mr. Tom Arnold chief executive of the charity Concern.
Mr. Arnold won’t be getting any more donations from this household, at the rate he is getting paid Concern doesn’t need them, he can fund it Himself!
However Mr.Colm Mc Carthy was cheap at 35,000
There were 17 individuals on this commission on Taxation one was a trade union representative and by the looks of things they will be receiving 700 euro per day attended and 350 Euros for each half day.So each time they meet, costs the taxpayers 12,000
Euro at this rate the country can never get off its knees.
This is the best Gig in town if you move in the right circles, you have it made, you can expect to be called upon for your advice and your financial skills don’t matter ,main thing is that you move in the right political circles, better still, be an X revenue commissioner
God knows what a little information can do for you!
