Talk 2 Joe


Irish radio stations are doing a good job for the Government!

With the right presenters in place they will continue to do so for years to come!

We here in Ireland have a habit of complaining about everything and anything on the air waves

I don’t know why, maybe because we think that by airing our grievances we think that we are doing something about them

It muss suite the ruling classes that we do this because the alternative would mean the end of their rule over us

I suppose we might get the idea to go out on to the streets and just make the changes we all seem to talk about all the time on these radio shows

These radio shows have their own guanos like the presenters have become superstars themselves and they also are in receipt of huge salaries

one of the was reputed to be receiving over 760,000:00 Euro a year now to put flesh on these bones that’s 3 Times the salary of the American President the most powerful man on the planet

The head of the HSE is receiving 500.000: Euro that is 2 Times the American Presidents salary

Should I go on I think not because I am depressed enough!

We must stop whinging over the air waves and take to the streets if we want to change anything in this country

All other avenues are in the hands of the ruling elite,

Is there a cosy circle in RTE?

Unless you have a Brother or Aunty or have Friends in there you won’t be able to get a job there

The current batch of presenters are paid way over the top for such a small country

But who will be brave enough and tell them over the air this?

Answer: You won’t get the chance!

178 jobs are to go

178 jobs are to go at electrical transformers components factory ABB in Waterford.

The company, which manufactures distribution transformers for the construction and utility markets in Ireland and the UK, will close its doors by the end of March 2010.

it was reported to-day

In a statement, the firm says it is closing because of ‘significantly lower orders and lack of potential business’.

ABB is a Swiss-Swedish-owned company and employs over 400 people at five different locations in Ireland.

The factory has been in operation in Waterford since 1951.

This is a major blow to the Waterford area and these jobs won’t be replaced anytime soon

With house prices falling and these workers now becoming unemployed I can’t see the construction industry coming back to life

This bad news will have a knock on effect expect to see more of these kind of headlines

Do you think the local TD’s and Ministers will be paying the mortgages of the newly arrivals on the dole queues

I know they will call for a task force to be set up and after a few months everybody will have forgotten all about these 178 people

That is why I call again for the unemployed to Unite and

Get active for yourself don’t wait for the local TD to spin you a yarn!

House prices

House prices in Dublin fell by 2.2 per cent last month, over the year, house prices fell by 14.8 per cent in Dublin. In the first five months of 2009 alone prices in Dublin declined 7.7 per cent and by 4.7 per cent elsewhere. This brings the average price of a house in the capital to €324,973 against €351,096 at the end of 2008.

Outside of Dublin, the average price declined from €233,984 in December to 213,491 in May. In the commuter county of Wicklow house prices have been hard hit, the average cost of purchasing a home fell to €252,811

Over the 12 months to the end of May, house prices fell by 17.6 per cent. Over the year, house prices for first-time buyers fell 17.4 per cent and in the first five months of 2009 were down 9.2 per cent.

I have a feeling that we are just at the beginning of this crash, we have a lot further to go because the country is so much poorer now and the prise rises of the last 10 years I believe will have to be given back.

 So expect to be able to buy Apartments in Dublin for 65K to 85K in a year or two and even then, they will still be more expensive that other major cities in Europe

Currently nobody can get a mortgage and even if you can most people will wait and put off that big decision until they are sure they are at the bottom of the market.

Another word for this is Deflation .Japan endured this for 10 years
