What is truth?

we need reform now!

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.

Spot the difference

 

This is a part of an article that David McWilliams wrote see link

Yesterday the, largely ceremonial, president of Iceland stood up for what is right. He decided that it was not democratic for the Icelandic government to insist that the Icelandic people pay foreign depositors who deposited money in Icelandic banks that subsequently went bust.

The president refused to sign the parliament’s bill, which would have penalised the Icelandic people for the mistakes of the executives of the Icelandic banks. He concluded that this was not reasonable as the banking mess was not the fault of the average Icelander. Iceland will have a referendum on the issue now.

This move implies that Iceland might jeopardise its access to IMF funds as well as definitely knock back its aspirations to join the EU.

The official line peddled by the international bureaucrats is that standing up for the small guy undermines Iceland’s credibility. However, the president decided that if credibility in the eyes of the foreign investors comes via hoodwinking the average Icelandic citizen into footing the bill for a mistake the financial markets facilitated, then it was better to be not credible.

Comment


I wrote to the Irish President on the 12.11.2009

See below

Dear Madam President,

The Nama Bill was passed in the Dail this afternoon by 81 votes to 62.

This is the single biggest fraud perpetrated on the Irish people and all 81 TD’s that

Voted for this will be held accountable!

Nama will buy property loans with a supposed book value of 77 billion Euros, according to the Government

Brian Lenihan has estimated that the loans are currently worth about €47 billion.

On what bases could he possible justify this valuation?

Who exactly is being bailed out, none other than foreign entities with no allegiance to Ireland

Why anybody would take anything that this person says seriously, judging on his past record and bearing in mind that this person is responsible for the crises in the first place along with his incompetent cohorts !

By overpaying by €7 billion, the Government hopes to avoid bankrupting the banks

What a laugh, somebody should tell him that they are all ready bankrupt, (morally, socially, and financially)

These Banks have in the past stole from their own customers, the revenue and have being shown to be corrupt and found trying to manipulate each other’s shares and yearly accounts

The Bill will now be sent to President Mary McAleese

I appeal to you, the President, Mary McAleese

Not to sign this piece of legislation and as President to protect the Irish constitution which guarantees all the people the right to be heard?

The 500 green party members had their vote and now the vested interests in the Dail have had their say

We the ordinary people want to have our say, call a referendum on NAMA

Demand that this be brought before the people now!

Sincerely

This is the reply I got !

Conclusion

Our Presidency is just another link in the chain that is strangling Irish Democracy

No sooner has the current president set foot in the Aras she has immersed herself into the game of staying in power and sod the rest of the ordinary people

What a difference the Irish president sends out the above letter and supports the foreign bond holders but the, president of Iceland stood up for what is right. He decided that it was not democratic for the Icelandic government to insist that the Icelandic people pay foreign depositors

The Icelanders at least have a true Man of the people in their President

We on the other hand have yet another stooge for the ruling elite
