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


Industries

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!

 

 

 


Democracy in action

 

The leaders of the EU have subjected the political establishment in Ireland to considerable pressure to come up with a strategy to overturn the June 12th vote. There was hardly any disagreement in the Yes camp that this should occur. They merely pleaded on tactical grounds for more time because the consequences of a second defeat would be devastating.

In pushing for a repeat vote, the political establishment have revealed their own contempt for the limited form of democracy that we currently enjoy. Referenda are blunt instruments as they force unlikely forces to combine around a simple Yes or No position. But they are equally blunt for both sides. If the Yes side had won the vote, it is barely conceivable that the No side could call for a repeat vote.

Once the vote was counted, the elected Taoiseach and his government were formally mandated to implement the decision of the people. Yet at no stage has the current government undertaken to actively promote that democratic view. They were mandated to press for the rejection of the Lisbon Treaty and as that treaty demanded the agreement of all EU nations, they had considerable leverage. Ireland’s effective veto on the treaty could have been exercised. If they had done this, the Lisbon Treaty would have died and the EU would have been forced to consider a new treaty which would have taken some account of the deep alienation that many Europeans feel about its undemocratic structures.

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 !

 

Pirate ship NAMA

It looks like that this Capt of Finance is going to bring himself and his crew to a sorry end and if he and his crew are captured he can expect to be asked to walk the plank, by his own crew! Some members are all ready considering mutiny!

You have been warned!

Ireland To-Day !

Betrayal of the People

The NAMA disaster is on its way!

To-day we the people of Ireland were forced to take the first steps to financial enslavement to international Bond holders

On this day I wanted to show you the citizens of Ireland the chief political culprits

There are many more people responsible for this fiasco these people will also be put up here in the next few days

These people must be brought to justice!




 

 

 


 

 


 


 


Irish Life & Permanent

 

 

Mr Brian COWEN and his pal Mr Brian LENIHAN should take a look across the water and see what the savvy Chancellor Alistair Darling  is doing with the British Banks, he is at least in the public eye making all the right noises calling the banks in and telling them off !

We here in Ireland are in a conundrum are we going to have strong Banks?or a strong 

economy ?

If so how do we achieve this without choking off any hope of an economic recovery, by squeezing every last penny out of the already squashed consumer?

The Government have made the decision to do just that!

By allowing the banks to fleece their customers they believe that the Banks will in no time at all have enough capital in their vaults and then they will start lending again out the business

So if you follow that logic you must ask yourself the question how many unemployed they think they will have to endure in the meantime.

Well a strong hint, by reducing the dole payment they think they will be able to pay for more unemployed people!

This government have lost the plot all together!

We are just getting resuscitated from the shock .5% Irish permanent mortgage hike when we now get the spin to accustom us for our own Irish Community Charge!

Along the way we will be given a water charge bill too!

so if you were to add up all the extra charges ,levies, surcharges ,A&E increased charges ,not to mention the next round of charges on 2nd homes ,increased Income taxes,it dosent leave much in our pockets!

I ask where do these genius think we the ordinary folk are going to get all this money especially when most of us will be on the dole?
