How to win a referendum:

Scaremongering but who’s doing it?

Finance Minister Brian Lenihan also warned yesterday that if Irish voters snubbed the treaty the result would “shatter international confidence” and lead to continued scarcity of funding and increased borrowing costs.(Looking for a yes vote)

A ‘No’ vote in next month’s lisbon Treaty  referendum could result in the interest bill on Ireland’s national debt jumping by up to €900m a year according to Indecon
Looking for a Yes vote )

A NO vote in the upcoming Lisbon Treaty referendum would represent a “spiritual withdrawal”, from Europe, Minister for Finance Brian Lenihan has warned. (Looking for a Yes vote)

A Yes vote in the referendum would earn Ireland the continued goodwill and support of the EU in tackling the banking crisis, he added.

Mr Gormley “It would be entirely counterproductive to vote “The whole emphasis in terms of the European recovery is a green recovery [which can provide] jobs, jobs, jobs.” Echoing the sentiments of other pro-Lisbon political leaders, “It would be a huge mistake to focus on national issues when this is a campaign to get us out of recession,” he said. (Looking for a yes vote)

How to win a referendum:

1. On top of high VRT, introduce a Green (Party) carbon tax, and just to be on the safe side, impose a €200 a year work parking tax, just for daring to have a job!

2. Make the citizens vote a second time, even though they said No – but make sure you don’t change the wording.

3. Have on the Yes side a millionaire car salesman, like Bill Cullen, who opposed changes to the infamous VRT, and is the biggest over priced merchant for  the Renault spear parts in the country(Nice one Bill!)


4 . Have Ryanair on the Government side, who are best known for their F-Service , saying there are a millions reasons to vote Yes (excluding taxes and charges), and (Baggage charges Now approaching 100 euro per bag) then have the same Government introduce a €10 travel tax, contrary to EU law of freedom of movement between member-states.

5 . In case the European Central Bank doesn’t hype up mortgage rates any time soon, re-introduce water rates and a property tax on every family home in Ireland, while at the same time making taxpayers bail out the bankers and the builders.

6 . Make sure Brian Cowen leads the Yes campaign.

7 . Have crooks running FAS

8 . Have people like John O’Donoghue become Ceann Comhairle in the Dail

9 . Create Toxic Banks to help your buddies in the Banks and the Building


10 . Keep corrupt Politicians in places of power

11 .TAX the Sh*** out of the ordinary people

12 Tell them you are going to crucify them in the coming December Budget

13. Make a complete mess of the Economy, and blame it on the ordinary people

For having paid extortion prices for their own homes

14. Put a Tax on those homes, let say 1000 Euro on average for every home in

The land

15 .when you hold a referendum keep going back to the people until you get the right result (the one you want)

16 .
Keep corrupt Bankers in their High paying Jobs at Bankrupt Banks

17. Allow these same Banks (Now with Government appointed Directors) to

Overcharge their own customers, and then, clam that it was a computer error when found out.

18. Allow dodgy Building Developers stroll into the courts of the land and present fantasy valuations as a means to dance around The Supreme Court rulings

When 80 families are turned out, and lose their overpriced homes every week, sold to them by these developers in the first place

19 . Make it blatantly obvious, that there is one law for the rich, and another law for the poor in this country

20. Tell everyone that NAMA is the only game in town and we the people must pay the gambling debts of the super rich of the country.

That should do it!




Who’s kidding who?

Mr Brian Lenihan said today NAMA may lead to the government taking bigger stakes in the financial institutions.

Should the losses of the banks be on a very large scale, a “substantial stake” would have to be taken, the minister said. The valuation of the assets will be based on a “long-term valuation which is realistic,” he said, adding in some cases that means land will never go beyond its agricultural value.

“Of course if the consequence of the valuations is that the banks suffer losses which destroy their capital base then of course of necessity the State will have to provide that capital and increase the public stake in the institutions concerned,” The minister said he doesn’t expect to nationalize the institutions “in their entirety.”

Examples of double talk “Long-term valuations”, “go beyond its agricultural value”,

“In their entirety.”

What we are hearing here is that Mr.Lenihan hasn’t got a clue!

Since the last time the Minster bought a stake in the bank’s the share price of these Banks have gone up at least 9 fold and the value of the States shares are still the same, because the minster has a clause in the agreement with the banks, for them to buy the States shareholding back at the purchase price the state paid for them

So there is no upside for the Taxpayers

Who is kidding who?

Banks to back Carroll in final bid to salvage ailing empire


Lawyers acting for Mr. Carroll will offer letters of support from his banks in an attempt to convince the High Court that his companies have a reasonable chance of survival pending an upturn in the economy.

The court will also be given up-to-date valuation reports on the “future prospects” of developments in his group of companies after the Supreme Court ruled last week that they would not be offered court protection.

This morning, A Judge Eamon de Valera will decide if Mr. Carroll has made a sufficient case which would give the developer 100 days to come up with a survival plan — and allow his empire to limp into the so-called Toxic bank NAMA.

Let there be no mistake here this constitutes special treatment for a pal in need from the ruling élite of this country.

Another Joe soap would never have being able to get to this point never mind ignore a

Supreme Court ruling

85 ordinary members of the public are losing their homes every week.


They are processed through the legal system ruthlessly and they can’t say to the banks that their homes will be worth thousands more in 10 years time and so they should wait for their money until then

NO they are shown the front Door and are made homeless

This whole circus this morning smacks of a stroke of a

Fianna Fail type to help one of their buddies!

Stop this corruption from taking place

No 2 NAMA Campaign to-day

Rip-off Republic

Its official we in Ireland are being ripped off even in stores like Argos and IKEA

A Mr. Barry Smyth of University College Dublin, a computer science professor

Mr. Smyth decided to do a study on the price difference between Ireland and 12 other countries.

By writing a simple program that calculated the value index based on the pricing here in the Republic of Ireland.

At first, it turns out that on the whole we are not the ‘Rip-off Republic’ we thought we were as regards to the likes of IKEA,

So Professor Smyth decided to look further afield to ARGOS

Smyth analysed a staggering 12,000 items – over half the items listed in the Argos catalogue – in order to get a more realistic picture While products from IKEA in Dublin were ‘only’ 8pc more expensive on average in comparison to those in the Belfast store, with Argos Ireland, on average, a product on is 24pc more expensive that the same product on the UK site.

“These averages disguise a multitude of savings, and there are literally hundreds of products that are 40pc-200pc more expensive in Irish Argos stores compared to UK stores,” says Smyth. An example of this kind of difference was a 52-inch high-definition Sony LCD TV up north. This product is listed as €3339.99 on the Irish site but comes in at only €2,213 (£1899.99) on the UK site,”

This survey shows the discrepancies in pricing across different jurisdictions for Argos and IKEA but these are not the only companies that are taking advantage of its customers practically all of the large UK Based companies operating in the republic are at the same game.

It would appear that the government is turning a blind eye to its citizens’ being ripped off

When the current government is fleecing its own citizens’

They are setting a fine example!

Rip-off Republic is alive and well even in this depression

Get even and vote No to Lisbon 2 then they will have to listen to us the people !
