I don’t find it difficult to understand, the political Gangsters/ Gombeens in Government are only looking after business as usual and that is self preservation (votes to me and you)! The Votes that will keep these political leeches sucking us dry as long as they toss a few crumbs to the public servants in the system. We have 300,000 people employed by the state and they mostly cannot be fired!, they enjoy perks and pensions that would be a dream come true to another worker in the country. Allowances that would be viewed as excessive to say the least by any private company !
The Coke park agreement was a sweetheart deal done to encourage the corrupt Union Bosses into keeping the peace and the workers off the streets! The Union Bosses are nothing more that collaborators and are equally guilty of the dismantling of local services to our citizens in favour of keeping the ranks of the civil service overflowed . They have betrayed the workers and I suppose that workers now unemployed are no longer paying dues to these corrupt Unions so they can be dis-guarded anyway!
The conundrum the government is facing in is this, they have raped and pillaged the ordinary people and their households. The easy and non protected citizens of Ireland and now, the TRIOKA are now rightly looking for the culling of the elephant in the room, as there is nothing more to be got from the bludgeoned taxpayers and homeowners and the workers in the private sector. There is no more room for downsizing and the enormous elephant (the public service ) must now be downsized to meet the new reality that is the lot for the rest of us ordinary taxpayers in the country!
The politicians are protecting their own power base and it is a shame that the masses of the unemployed do not get up off their backsides and organize a permanent protest outside the Dail in their hundreds of thousands and force their plight on to the agenda ,Jobs, education, Health services and a roof over their heads .They should hound these pests out of the Dail! There are over that 480,000 people Unemployed just imagine what changes we could make to our country if they all would get up and stop accepting crumbs from the table of the gangsters running the country?
This country is run for the sole benefit of the political elite and their insider’s pals and the Financial money men everybody else is just there to be used and abused!
These self-serving politicians, have divided our society and the name of the game is keep us all fighting each other and they can then stay on top and get fat and rich while the rest of us are so afraid to come out on to the streets and be labelled radicals. We must now get up of our collective knees and pull these blood suckers, liars and con artists of our backs period!
