What is truth?

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!

Lenihan raising house prices

On the Minister of Finance.

What business does he have telling us that prices are now realistic? What prices is he referring to? On what basis are prices realistic? To whom are they realistic? If prices are realistic does that, as the Independent aver, equate to prices being at the bottom? Maybe but let’s remember that the Minister must also on occasion don the leader’s hat and tell us to cheer up, it will get better and we will rebound and I know that we must believe that.

I wonder whether if the Minister donned the realist’s hat he would believe his own words at this point in time. If the Minister had just spent €54bn of the State’s money on gold, I wouldn’t expect him to say anything other than “buy gold today and get as much of the stuff as you can”. Time will tell.

Spot on, this guy (The Irish Government) has at a stroke become the largest property owner (through his creation of the largest fraud in Irish history NAMA) in Europe if not the world.

I deal in the financial markets on a Daly bases and have done so for the last 15 years, buying stock and selling stock, hedging through options .It is common practice to see an action in the various markets called “pump and dump” this is done with 98% of the time of worthless stock

Large chunks are bought for pennies and the talked up, by analysts who get themselves on to such media channels Fox news, yahoo Finance and cbsmarketwatch and a whole host of other news outlets ,pumping the message that this is the time to buy this sh**

This of course is precisely what Lenihan is now trying to do, talk up the stock (Property) (mostly worthless stock)

The last time a Minster from this Government told people to buy property, (Berti Ahern) He said that if you were not getting into property now you were a fool, we all know what happened then!

I have over the years bought and sold property and always kept to a few rules when ,buying as there is only one rule when selling and that is sell at a profit.

 When buying

  • find out what rent you would get for the property

    Let’s say you will be getting 800 euro per month, and that rents are stable and not going down. This would then give an annual rent of 9,600:00 Euros

  • Multiply this figure by 10, this gives you 96,000.000:00Euros .This is the maximum you should pay for this building period!

    Why 10? , because this is the highest interest rates are likely to go. And with this system you will always get someone to rent and thus pay the mortgage.

  • Do not listen to the estate agent with regards to a price for the property; His or her interest is completely different to yours.
  • Ballpark value of average property is dependent on availability of credit from the banks

    And location .values can be arrived so

    The average working wage is currently 28,000:00 Euro and I believe falling because of the government’s income tax measures to pay off the huge bailout of the banks and their cronies in the Building industry.

    The stated policy of the Banks is to give only two and a half times salary and that is with conditions attached

    So 28,000:00 X 2.5 = 70,000:00 Walla, average price one should pay for a property in Ireland

    This formula works all over Europe (Germany, France etc)

  • So based on these figures we are nowhere near the bottom ,with 500,00 on the dole and approx 56,000 leaving the country, approx 23,000 young students leaving as well who do you think is going to buy all 300,000 empty properties around the country??


     

I wouldn’t be buying just yet !

Error
This video doesn’t exist

First video Irish minimum wage .

2nd video Irish unemployment

I had to play the videos three times and the story they tell is compelling even if it is not the story one wants to hear!

The fact is we are just too expensive a country to do business in and with .If these figures are correct and I have no data proving otherwise!

I suspect we will have to expect another two years or more of house deflation to bring affordability

Back to the ordinary average workers wages (in line with the rest of Europe)  

Thus bringing average house prices here in Ireland to 60,000 thousand Euros .These videos show me that the Irish Government are in the process of bring down the national average industrial wage let’s say to 25,000 Euro ,the banks will only offer mortgages now of 2.5 times annual wage so this brings the value of the average max mum lone the banks will give to 62,500 Euro .there’s you average house price and that’s where we are heading so if you are in the market for a home I wouldn’t be buying just yet !
