If this happens in America

If this can happen in America
What hope have we here in Ireland if something goes wrong with Shell in the west of Ireland?
Here in sleepy old Ireland we don’t have anything like of this kind of investigative media / journalism
Just to prove the point did you know the country’s growth exports this year are “our chemical industry exports “and these companies are not Irish but US corporate giants
Recently we heard that the BP oil spill was capped and that the oil was “dispersed “
But exactly what does that mean? I remember hearing them say they were using some chemicals to do this job and then no more news.
Obama Comes on TV and tell the world that it’s all over and America has overcome this challenge once again
well now here we have a chemical called Corexit 9500 that BP is using to Disperse this oil but already we are getting reports about the toxic fallout of this chemical from (Corexit has started eating through boats in the Gulf)(PDF)
This company is like a state within a state and its track record leaves a lot of questions unanswered
The controls that are supposed to be in place have to be questioned ?
When you consider the controls that were supposed to be in place for the financial sector
as a sector that is supposed to spearhead the Irish exports you could argue that the government is likely to bow to pressure from these chemical giants to lay off with the regulation
to thrust them is one thing but control is better don’t you think ?



Yep! it’s British all right !

That BP oil Spill

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!
