St. Columcille’s Hospital Loughlinstown up-date

About 150 concerned citizens of Wicklow showed up to day to
protest against the service cuts proposed for St. Columcille’s Hospital Loughlinstown.

We the people of Wicklow are been bamboozled by spin and all
5 Wicklow TD’s have swallowed the lies that this hospital needs to have its
services cut, because of safety issues. After years of reducing the funds, the last
government has tried to run this hospital down in order to justify their strategy
of cutting services. It is because we are now paying enormous interest on the so
called bailout of our country we don’t have nothing left to pay for the upkeep
of our community hospitals .The new government have decided to continue to
implement the policies of the last Fianna Fail government. they have also ditched
all their promises to the voters of Wicklow as they believe they are in their
Dail jobs now for the next 5 years and the voters cannot kick them out until
then .  These same 5 politicians have
lied to the voters of Wicklow and as the wallow in their lottery salaries .Unless
we the people get up off our collective backsides and stand up for ourselves we
stand to lose all of our community services and our public health system .

We must make a stand now!

“Up-grading of Services” by cutting the services of the existing hospital!

Listening to Fine Gaels Wicklow TD Billy Timmins spin on east coast radio this morning  on what he presents as  the “Up-grading of Services” for the Wicklow public by cutting the services of the existing hospital is just the latest attempt to con the public.I have stated once before these cuts in services are a direct result in the broken promises by the
government who have chosen to continue, to support gangsters in the banks and pay gamblers in the bond markets with the taxes of the Irish public. There is no more money left when they are done paying interest payments to these people. Unless we force the government and their supporters (4 government Wicklow TD’s) to accept that default is the only option left for Ireland .Our national pension reserve is all but depleted, and the money has gone down a black hole and we have nothing to show for it. Who is going to pay for this outrageous robbery? The ordinary people of Ireland will, as the politicians are sitting pretty on their fat lottery salaries and golden handshakes .Timmins attempt to justify the downgrading of St. Columcille’s Hospital Loughlinstown is appalling to say the least.

Save Loughlinstown A&E

The 5 TD’s of Wicklow couldnt be bothered to show up !

I attended the public meeting last night and was disappointed
to note that not one of the 5 Wicklow TD’s did bother to come .John Brady read
out a letter from Billy Timmins that basically states the governments line and
amounted to calling upon the people of Wicklow to accept what the government deems
to be what’s best for us . Richie Boyd Barrett TD also was
in attendance and gave a short account of the efforts that are currently
underway in support of the A&E services at loughlinstown he also stated that we believed that the Independent Stephen Donnelly was supporting the left alliance in their efforts to save the A&E services in loughlinstown (but never the less Mr.Donnelly did not attend this public meeting ) also in attendance
was Cllr Rossa Murray, Cllr Tracy O’Brien and Cllr Pat Kavanagh of Fis Nua.

I would like to thank Mr. John Brady for organizing this public meeting and also
thank the approximately 135 concerned citizens for taking the time to attend.
Hopefully this is but the first step in the fight to retain these vital emergency
services at this hospital .I  believe the Wicklow public should now realize that the new TD’s elected to safeguard out public services are not going to stick their necks out on the contrary it seems they are all towing the party line. I suggested at the meeting that all the hospitals should unite and any attack by the government on any of their services would be
view as an attack on their own hospital .The unions of these hospitals should
make it clear to the government that they will not sit back and allow this wholesale destruction of the country’s health services to continue.

“Evil prospers when good men do nothing.”

                                                            

                               Fine Gael and Labour looking after business!

Goes  to show the markets are not jumping for joy(see  “Ireland’s credit rating grouped with Botswana “ ) with the prospect of Fine Gael or Labour taking office soon .They are only offering more of the same gombeenisem  and stroke politics.

Looking after themselves is their number one priority. Here we have ten people who have been telling us the citizens of Ireland that we are livening beyond our means and have justified imposing sever austerity measures never before see in this country .I see the results of these measures every day in all estates around the county of Wicklow below you see their pension payments that they will receive for the rest of their lives and none of the established political parties have come out and promised to cut back on these lottery pensions .These payments are immoral and cannot be justified.

I see evil and I am standing up against it are you with me?

They show how bankrupt the political system and how corrupt it is!  

By voting for the established political parties you are voting for a continuing of this type of behaviour. I am ashamed to go to the doors of people and just stand there and not be able to do anything about this, when you see people who can’t pay for the heating or their car tax or are dreading the next ESB bill or the next VHI notice of payments due.

Judging from the paddy power betting I haven’t got a hope so why do I continue to put myself to the expense of standing when I can’t reach all 130,000 voters in the county when I can only speak to 20 people every hour and only commit to 5 hours every day until the Election Day

Because I want to be able to show my Children I did something to try and stop this outright robbery and I stood up to this corrupt system.

Billy Timmins: I listened with interest to Deputy Gogarty’s speech and
there is much in it with which I agree.  However, if I had not seen the
announcement made a couple of weeks ago that the Green Party was pulling
out of Government I would not believe that he is pulling out.  I know
that deep down the Green Party probably regrets the decision made at the
time.

It has not heard it because it has not listened. It has not listened to

anybody. A great number of constructive proposals were put forward by

this side of the House but they fell on deaf ears and the country has

suffered as a result. In the past week I heard a number…

Enda Kenny / George Lee

With the departure of George Lee, I believe we are witnessing the complete demise of the now exposed Enda Kenny and the out of touch Fine Gael with the realities of the current economic situation!

Enda Kenny, having scored a resounding national coup by getting the country’s top economic commentator to come on side, has now with the departure of Grorge Lee completely destroyed any hope of becoming Taoiseach

There is no use in telling the public that one has to under-go training in period when one enters the Dail

Remember the first people that entered the Dail did not have to undergo an apprenticeship.

This is just hor****

All this now does, is tell the general public that Fine Gael is just as mush a hostage to its accumulated

Ancient  practices that at sometime in the long distant past might have been useful.

This episode exposes again my contention that the practices in the Dail that all political parties conform to is way outdated and has no place in modern Ireland

Again I state that I believe that the system is corrupt and dysfunctional

This lame attempt  to now clam that all new TD’s included George Lee  must first have a type of apprenticeship before they can contribute is just farcical

 I would not vote for somebody that I thought was just going to be an apprentice

This shows the public that true nature of Fine Gael, it confirms that even in opposition they seem to have a lot of Prema – Donnas

 They are trying to make the public conform to their way of doing business

We won’t have it, and in the next polls you will see how pissed off we really are!

I call on George Lee now to form his own political party and I can promise him at least 30 of my friends to join him immediately

If Fine Gail wants to help form the next government they will have to shift Enda Kenny

His judgement is now on the Floor!

Forget the minimum wage and work for nothing!

Work Placement Program (WPP)

Languishing on the Dole for the last 12 months and not in receipt of any payments (because I was self-employed) I heard about this program, and thought I would go down to the local FAS office here in Wicklow Town and enquire about this possibility for myself!

As usual I was met with the usual courtesy .The FAS officer reminded me that they were always available, no appointment was necessary and we got down to business

I wanted to know if there was a possibility I could take advantage of this program.

Cheerfully she informed me I would be eligible for this program (now we are getting places I thought!)

Then out of the blue I was told that whilst I could theoretically get a placing for up to nine months in a company, I would be working without pay for those nine months.

As I am not in receipt of any payments from the department of social welfare or FAS itself.

I would not receive any funds from these state bodies nor would I receive any payment from the company I was working for!

So we have now reached the bottom in the Irish labour market, forget the minimum wage, with the new changes to the FAS rules at the last budget in December.

Brian Lenihian now expects the unemployed to work for nothing!

The sense of injustice is just sickening, as I have worked all my life and paid my taxes and yet I see people who have not contributed to the state collect payments!

It’s almost a crime to be Irish in Ireland now! FAS may not have any more money to pay

For the training and up skilling of the unemployed as a result of their incompetence

And questionable financial practices.

I appeal to the minster concerned to ratify this obvious abuse of the Unemployed and I call on all TD’s to demand that this practice be immediately revoked

I particularly call on the local TD’s for my area, to publicly show their support for the unemployed of Wicklow and support this petition.
