Preliminary Report Into Ireland’s Banking Crisis 31 May 2010

Protesters at Anglo Irish Bank

 


It appears the four people on ledger were arrested as well as two or three people who had been outside. All this took place in the space of ten minutes. Inspector Gannon who led the assault on Shell to Sea campaigners at Polthomas pier in Rossport was spotted among the Gardai and witnesses reported they had the clear impression that the Gardai were acting under orders that no further protests against the bank bailouts were to be tolerated.

Up to 100 Gardai are now around Anglo Irish bank with a second protest having being called by eirigi for 14.00 today. It has been confirmed that this protest will still be going ahead as will Tuesdays protest at the Dail.

We would call on people to join the anti-capitalist block at 19.00 at the Wolfe Tone statue on Tuesday (opposite Shelbourne Hotel) where we will discuss how to best respond to the attacks on bank bailout protests before proceeding to the Dail.

Response to Pope’s pastoral letter

 

Response to Pope’s pastoral letter

In the pope’s pastoral letter he says

“I urge you to examine your conscience, take responsibility for the sins you have committed, and humbly express your sorrow. Sincere repentance opens the door to God’s forgiveness and the grace of true amendment. By offering prayers and penances for those you have wronged, you should seek to atone personally for your actions. Christ’s redeeming sacrifice has the power to forgive even the gravest of sins, and to bring forth good from even the most terrible evil. At the same time, God’s justice summons us to give an account of our actions and to conceal nothing. Openly acknowledge your guilt, submit yourselves to the demands of justice, but do not despair of God’s mercy”.

This letter is a first step in the long road of renewal for the church

But the pace of this renewal is too slow, with modern methods of transmitting news, the Church is just not making the necessary changes soon enough and events will overtake it if it does not move faster.

I see nothing new that convinces me that I should allow my Daughter to be confirmed into the current institution of the church

I read a lot about what has happened but little about what changes are been made

And nothing about accountability!

I suggest that Cardinal Brady take the “obvious step” and do so now along with the rest of the Bishops that have been implicated in the abuse scandals.

“It cannot be denied that some of you and your predecessors failed, at times grievously, to apply the long-established norms of canon law to the crime of child abuse. Serious mistakes were made in responding to allegations”

“Nevertheless, it must be admitted that grave errors of judgment were made and failures of leadership occurred. All this has seriously undermined your credibility and effectiveness”

Through their failure to act, they allowed many children to be raped and be sexually abused by the pedophile priest Fr. Brendan Smith and others like him!

For anybody else in the Irish state this would be a criminal act and punishable under the criminal justice system within the State

The pope himself is also compromised as he was the Bishop in charge in his own country that turned a blind eye to abuse on boys

He too must step aside.

Only through a total revamp of the church structure can it hope to be able to enjoy the support of the people.

It is now time for the ordinary people of the church (who are the church) to decide who should become the pope and not the nominated Cardinals of pervious popes.

The time is right for to people to take back our church and decide what its future should be!

God save Ireland from these Gangsters!

Ombusdman Emily O’Reilly claimed today the work of her office was being undermined by what she described as “deficits in our parliamentary and government arrangements”.

In an address to the Institute of Public Administration in Dublin today, Ms O’Reilly criticised the Government’s decision last month to vote against a proposal to have her report on a grant aid scheme for commercial fishermen referred to an Oireachtas committee.

She said the handling of the controversial Lost to Sea report illustrated how the Oireachtas was being side-lined. Ms O’Reilly published the report last December after its findings were rejected by the Department of Agriculture, only the second time this has happened since the office of ombudsman was founded in the 1980s.

“Unfortunately, the model of government set out in the Irish Constitution has become more of a fiction than a reality,” Ms O’Reilly said. “In practice the Dáil, and to a slightly lesser extent the Seanad, is controlled very firmly by the Government parties through the operation of the whip system.

“For all practical purposes, and I very much regret having to say this so bluntly, parliament in Ireland has been sidelined and is no longer in a position to hold the executive to account,” she said. “With the exception of the election of a Taoiseach, almost all decisions of importance are taken by the executive and are rubber-stamped by parliament.”

The Lost at Sea scheme was established in 2001 by then minister for the marine Frank Fahey. Under the scheme, owners of fishing boats lost at sea could apply for grant aid for replacement capacity.

The Byrne family from Donegal later complained to the ombudsman after its application was rejected, on the grounds it was made after the deadline.

Ms O’Reilly’s report criticised several aspects of the scheme, including the advertising process, which she found was not comprehensive enough. She recommended compensation of €245,000 for the Byrnes.

Ms O’Reilly said last month the Dáil and Seanad had the task of deciding who is right and wrong in her dispute with the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.

But following a heat Dáil debate on the matter last month, the Government voted against referring the report to the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.

In her speech today, Ms O’Reilly claimed the Government had stopped the Oireachtas adjudicating on her dispute with the Department of Agriculture by voting “along party political lines”.

She said this illustrated “how deficits in our parliamentary and government arrangements can adversely affect” the work of her office.

Ms O’Reilly said she would have expected a parliamentary committee, following appropriate scrutiny, to reach the conclusion that her recommendation in the report that financial compensation be paid to the complainant.

She said her office “had done, in its area of responsibility, precisely what the Financial Regulator was accused of not doing, in terms of failing to serve the public interest and rooting out maladministration in the banking system”.

Ms O’Reilly said she hoped the Oireachtas may yet find a mechanism to allow the report to be dealt with “calmly and reasonably”.

In a wide-ranging speech, the Ombudsman said poor governance in a number of our key private and public institutions lies at the heart of our economic downturn.

comment

This is just the latest example of how our constitution does not meet the challenges from our own government with the self-interests now blatantly using the executive power to promote the interests of the chosen few

The political system in now was used and abused by a totally corrupt political elite and their lackeys.

The Dail is no longer listening to the voice of the Irish people.

Wrangling over the plum jobs and positions of power are the order of the day, sqandering billions down toxic Bank holes under the guise of the Con NAMA , and robbing ordinary people of their dignity in sickness

By putting them on trolleys in hallways, along hospitals corridors

Forcing the unemployed to work for nothing is programs (WPP) from discredited FAS

Allowing Bank Directors to be rewarded, who have supervised the systematic destruction of our national banking system to continue in place while the public loses their pensions and the shareholder loses 95% of their holdings!

Our political masters are so interconnected with these gangsters they have put the interests of International bond holders (NAMA)over the interests of the Irish people. We are no longer a free and independent nation our freedom has being given away and we and our children and the next generation are now financial slaves to foreign vested interests

This is treachery and it seems the constitutional rights of the of the people of Ireland are been ignored .This Dail no longer represents the people and any amount of shuffling the chairs around a corrupt cabinet will change nothing!

Traitors are still traitors it doesn’t matter where they sit

We the people want those responsible removed from their plum jobs and brought before the people’s justice. We also demand the a new government renegotiate the huge debts that were incurred by their corrupt bankers and the said Bank directors made pay from their own funds

Those responsible must not benefit in any way from their crimes.

These people at the top are the problem and until they all go Ireland hasn’t got any hope of retrieving its once cherished independence.

God save Ireland from NAMA and these Gangsters!

The Farce be with you !

Bishop’s appeal for financial aid


Every one of these pampas pi** will roast in hell before I would put my hand in my pocket to help them stay in their palaces

What cheek they should be in jail and put on the sex registry of the state.

This call again shows that jackass are out of touch with the real world why did they not ask the Pope in Rome when they were there or better still why did they not just stay there they wouldn’t be missed here.

(Wicklow, Labour)

Last year broadcasting legislation was passed by the two Houses and the Joint Committee on Communications, Energy and Natural Resources was charged with carrying out a selection process for appointments to the boards of the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland and RTE. That process was completed before Christmas. We all know the Minister, Deputy Ryan, has an eccentric view regarding appointments to the public services. He seems to think a telephone call and a chat is enough.
We now have a situation where, I understand, four Cabinet meetings have been held and yet these appointments have not been made. I have no idea what is going on, but the committee on which I sit carried out its duty in an exemplary fashion. We made our recommendations to the Minister, Deputy Ryan. He does not have to accept them, but we have no word—–
 

Question 48: To ask the Minister for Finance if the public sector pay cuts apply when contract employees in a university here have their funding 100% sourced from philanthropic or private sources; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

Brian Lenihan Jnr
(Minister, Department of Finance; Dublin West, Fianna Fail)

The Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest (No 2) Act, 2009 makes provision for the reduction in the pay rates of all persons employed by public service bodies with effect from 1 January 2010. Universities come under the definitions within the Act as public service bodies, contract researchers where they are employed by such a public service body are subject to the pay reductions provided for under the legislation.

Question 89: To ask the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform when digital closed circuit television will be provided to a Garda station (details supplied) in County Wicklow to replace the out of date analogue system; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

John Curran
(Minister of State, Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs; Dublin Mid West, Fianna Fail)

I am informed by the Garda authorities that the recording equipment currently employed for the existing Garda CCTV system in the station referred to by the Deputy will be replaced with digital recording equipment during the first quarter of 2010.

 Question 115: To ask the Minister for Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs if he will give assurances for continued funding in 2011, 2012 and onwards for a community development project (details supplied) in County Wicklow in order for it to continue its work with the County Wicklow partnership; if the current level of funding will continue into the future; his views on the important work being carried out by the community development projects; and if he will make a statement on the matter

John Curran
(Minister of State, Department of Community, Rural and Gaeltacht Affairs; Dublin Mid West, Fianna Fail)

As I outlined previously to the House, my Department has seen the need to redesign its community development/social inclusion programmes, particularly the Local Development Social Inclusion (LDSIP) and Community Development Programmes (CDP), drawing on good international practice and to support the ongoing evaluation of the programmes. Both programmes have a community development element and were delivered through separate local delivery structures. These programmes came to an end on 31 December 2009 and have been superseded by a new programme, the Local and Community Development Programme (LCDP).

The aim of the new programme is to tackle poverty and social exclusion through partnership and constructive engagement between Government and its agencies and people in disadvantaged communities.

The new programme will preserve elements of good practice from the CDP/LDSIP Programmes and will enable groups to objectively demonstrate the positive impacts they are securing for local communities. An implementation strategy, involving the stakeholders, is underway in preparation for LCDP roll-out over the course of 2010.

In advance of proceeding to establish a single programme across CDPs and Partnerships, my Department undertook an evaluation of individual community development projects. Many of these projects span across two decades, with quite diverse activities. The objective of the review was to identify those projects that produce tangible, appropriate benefits for the communities they serve. The vast majority of projects, including the project referred to by the Deputy, fall into this category and have been offered funding under the new programme in 2010. Where projects were not recommended for continued funding, an appropriate appeals mechanism has been provided.

I am pleased to have been able to ring-fence funding for community development projects for 2010 and to maintain it at 2009 levels. In few other areas of public spending has it been possible to do this. The Deputy will appreciate that ongoing funding for 2011 and beyond will be subject to budgetary considerations at the appropriate time.



 

Banking Inquiry, what Banking Inquiry?

Banking Inquiry


We have being promised to-day a Banking inquiry of sorts, by the government but with conditions

There is no need for me to go through all the nity – gritty as I am just too disillusioned with the half baked display of concern of the public’s demand a full and Independent Inquiry by the Government

I hereby renounce all recognition of the right of this government to act on my behalf or my familie and subsequently call on all citizens to kick these criminals out.

I call again for a General election to disprove the public’s support for this band of Gangsters

 

I also again call on the hundreds of thousands of unemployed to come on to the streets and demand the heads of those that have put us where we are .Join the CAB  

Get up and take action, get organized and start taking back our homeland from these Gangsters!
 start canvassing in your local areas against the Governments own candidates .

 

What the gangsters in the Dail have seemingly offered is a covering up and even destroying any hope of the culprits ever having to face justice in this Be-NAMA Republic of ours

Because the culprits are the powers that be .Cowen and Lenihian are in this up to their Necks and are holding the reins of power and their Green lackeys have just woken up to the fact that their bluff has being called ,they have no where else to go and a general election now would wipe them out entirely

We the ordinary people have being sacrificed for the sake of holding on to power

I call upon the Labour Party and the Fin Gael now to declare that they will, when they establish  the next government, they will hold a public inquiry into the destruction of Irelands Financial Independence, the collapse of the Banking system and bring those guilty of corrupt practices to justice and ensure that all those guilty will serve Jail time and their ill-gotten gains will be taken back off them

All x Td’s and Government Minsters will forfeit their pensions and all other payments if found to have aided or abetted these criminal and treasonable acts.
