Kenny and Ireland’s dead cat bounce

By Michael Hennigan

Enda Kenny, taoiseach, made a broadcast to the nation last night to mark the official end of the international bailout and he deserves some credit for meeting the financial terms of the bailout and winning concessions from Europe on debt. However, the crisis
provided the best opportunity for radical change since the late 1950s and now
the time has passed. The Economist in a blog post titled ‘Dead Cat Bounce‘ says that meeting the bailout terms “has done little to solve Ireland’s underlying ailment: the fact that domestic activity – – roughly equivalent to GNP – – only accounts for 80% of GDP. As the multinational firms that account for most of the rest contribute little towards
government revenue due to Ireland’s super-low tax rates, Ireland’s debt burden
will only become more sustainable when domestic firms start booming.”

Kenny and his co collaborators in the Twiddle dumb and twiddle dumber political system are effectively announcing that its back to Business as Usual for the 350 insider family’s or so elite that are running this BA-NAMA Republic .They lied to us and broke all their promises and anyone dumb enough to believe that Happy days are on the way with 65,000 citizens leaving every year is just a joke, the lower classes, the vulnerable and the old who cannot defend themselves. Our country is divided and these crooks are still parting at our expense, sucking our country dry on behalf of the big multi corporations ,who pay a pittance in tax  so the PAYE taxpayers will continue to carry the burden of bailing out gangsters, crooked politicians and toxic banks! We need a drastic change that includes the abolition of the current dictatorship of the 2.5 political party systems that ensures no change in politics no matter what combination of political party wins at the so called polls! Putting the likes of this puppet in charge of our lives along with Noonan, Gilmore, and M. Martin is just plain stupid!

Allowing the current totally corrupt system to continue is just putting off the day of reckoning /revolution. We cannot allow this system where these self-centred, sell-outs controlling   every aspect of our lives for 5 years after each and every election! No I want to be able to kick these crooks out of office via referendum (Direct democracy) a month after any election or any time within the 5year period, if they prove to be liars, con artists, on the make or downright puppets in the pay of foreign governments, and or proven to have deceived the people (Broken promises) No real modern democracy needs career politicians! We are a small country and we should be able to govern ourselves like the Swedes or the Swiss.

Have a great day!

Beware of German (KfW) Bearing Gifts?..


As reported in today’s press, Ireland has secured a sort-of backstop to its exit from the bailout via an agreement with Germany‘s state- and local authorities-owned KFW Development Bank (see: http://www.irishtimes.com/news/politics/kfw-is-a-public-bank-providing-development-loans-at-lower-interest-than-commercial-rates-1.1595460 and http://www.irishexaminer.com/ireland/bailout-a-calculated-political-gamble-that-just-might-not-pay-off-249727.html). This was blessed by Germany (http://www.independent.ie/business/irish/merkel-backs-ireland-bailout-exit-without-overdraft-29754656.html). And it may or may not qualify as a backstop for the Exchequer (see speculative analysis here: http://www.irishexaminer.com/archives/2013/1115/ireland/bailout-exit-declaration-exaggerated-half-truth-249716.html).
One can only speculate as to the possible conditionalities imposed by Angela Merkel and her potential coalition partners on Ireland under the exit deal, but here’s an interesting parallel development that has been unfolding in recent weeks……

Kenny ‘being seriously talked about’ for European roles

Kenny to collect his 30 pieces of silver having betrayed the people of Ireland????

Minister for Transport Leo Varadkar has said he would be surprised if the Taoiseach left the Government to take one of two powerful European roles which come up next year. Speculation has linked Enda Kenny with the role of European Council president which becomes available from December 2014 and also the role of European Commission president, where a new incumbent is required for next June. Speaking today Mr Varadkar admitted Mr Kenny’s name was being repeatedly mentioned in Brussels by politicians and officials and said the three front-runners appeared to be Mr Kenny, the prime minister of Finland Jyrki Katainen and the Danish prime minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt………..

“Kenny to collect his 30 pieces of silver having betrayed the people of Ireland”!

This is the real question !

For a politician whose own front bench tried to dump him, I can only assume he won’t be missed in Dail Éireann by them! I know the vast majority of the people of Ireland can’t wait to see the back of him and his puppet government! This is how the faceless money men behind their puppet politicians in Europe reward corrupt national politicians and traitors who help enslave their own people! This Gobs**t got into the Dail by making promises to the people of Ireland’s but once in power he and the rest of his party gangsters did the exact opposite and carried out the dictates of the previous shower of gangsters before them. The majority of the people in Ireland want rid of him ASAP! If Europe is stupid enough to pay this clown then maybe it’s time for the whole Euro debacle to be shut down! As far as I can see it’s become a nursing home for forked tongued puppet politicians!

Priory Hall residents ‘can move on’ (Thanks to the Taxpayers )

By Fiach Kelly

Stephanie Meehan, whose partner took his own life, was speaking after the residents of Priory Hall accepted the Government’s deal, and said: “The nightmare is over for all the residents – but it is not over for me.”

She said: “I think now from today we can start to move forward with our lives. The only difficulty here is, and what I would wish for today, would be if Fiachra was here to celebrate this moving forward with me.

“That is the downside, but the upside is that we can move on with our lives.”

The residents met Taoiseach Enda Kenny in Government Buildings, and Mr Kenny also said he hoped the families affected could now move on.

He said residents forced to leave Priory Hall’s “fire traps in horrendous circumstances” now have “new direction, new life, new hope….

I am also sorry for this ladies loss but, but I fail to see why the hard-pressed taxpayers must now pay for their misfortune and their entrapment by the corrupt bankers! Surely the private commercial transactions for all citizens have to have equal standing within the law? What about the other 200 or so citizens who this year so far, have committed suicide because of their financial entrapment by the same corrupt banks? Are the families of these victims going to get any support from these gutless politicians?

The gombeen’s in government have shown with this action that there is no law other that the law for the in crowd, the more media attention you can get the better you chances of getting funds from the taxpayers of this BA=NAMA-REPUBLIC. Will this shower in Lenster house now forgive the 180,000 citizens who cannot pay their mortgages as they too were sold overpriced shoeboxes and homes that were built in fold plains all over the country???Why are the gangsters responsible still walking around enjoying their payoff’s pensions and mansions? What about the other citizens who have been evicted out of their homes by the corrupt financial transactions of the zombie bankers ?? This is another example of the politicial coverup and protection of the banker elete in this  BA=NAMA-REPUBLIC!

The sorry fact is that the country is full of Priory Hall’s , are they going to bailout all of them???

PS :

Possible TAX implications.

Are the residents now libel for benefit in kind as they have a benefit in financial terms of the equivalent to their outstanding mortgage amount???

Remember these crooks in the Dail give with one hand and take away with the other hand!

Ref:Seanad referendum


Well if you are in Ireland reading this you may well want to congratulate yourself seeing that we the people have thwarted the attempts by the established political elite to take a big chunk out of our constitution. Yes my friends we can indeed feel we have achieved something special but don’t go overboard as the politicians will now have to come up with an alternative plan! Mr Kenny refused to consider a major overall of the upper house and I fear he and his vested interests will now continue to stuff the house with their cronies’ .What we now need to do is to pile on the pressure for a major overall of this house and enable access for the ordinary Joe!

No more special places for our top University props and the other elitist vested interests in our society we need access for all and one way would be for a national lottery of all the citizens, where all PPS numbers will be put into a lottery and the first 64 or so numbers will be the new members of the upper house! Once served you do not get a second term no matter who you are and all the previous members must be disqualified. A payment of the equivalent of the dole payment should be sufficient for the privilege of serving your own people and a drastic cut in the existing politician’s salaries to say the average industrial wage should also be implemented ASAP. No state pensions should exceed that of the average wage earner period!

Now we are talking meaningful change and a true presentation of democracy for and by the people.

Have a pleasant Sunday

Taxi Driver Norwegian Prime Minister

Enda Kenny is an Irish Gombeen – politician, and has been the Taoiseach since 2011.He wouldn’t last 5 minutes in any public place without the cops protecting him.

He has lied through his teeth and the other gangsters in government would also piss in their pants ,if they found themselves among the ordinary people .They have sold us off to become financial slaves to faceless bondholders who themselves are gangsters, who blackmail small countries into paying their gambling debts! Kenny is just a puppet and a collaborator just like the “Vichy” government in France during the 2nd world war.

This is the Irish version of a Government Minster (Minister B Howlin) as he meets up with the Irish Public!   see the difference????

This video shows the stark difference of what a real democracy should be as it clearly demonstrates the accessibility of ordinary people to the leaders in Government! If you have money and are famous you have access to our Irish government but the ordinary Joe soap is frozen out!



The photo ,taken in Dublin sums it up for most people 2/3rds of the citizens .The other 1/3 are in the pay of the state and are the cheerleaders of the current corrupt political élite!


THE fight against the property tax is heading to the High Court — after campaigners served legal papers on the State


The Attack The Tax group is claiming the new levy is UNLAWFUL.

It says the charge is in breach of the Constitution and has likened its  challenge to a “people’s class action” which is being brought over the  controversial charge.

The group has lodged legal papers against Taoiseach Enda Kenny, his  ministers, the Revenue, Ireland and the Attorney General, along with all the  local councils in the country. It claims thousands have already signed up as  shareholders, and are appealing for everyone angry with the tax to join.

All shareholders enjoy “legal privilege” so Revenue will not be able to get  them to pay up, the group says.

They claim the tax is “unlawful and is contrary to the provisions of the  Constitution of Ireland and international law”.

The legal papers further claim that “coercion, economic duress, deception and  fraud” were used to get consent for the property charge.

A spokeswoman for Revenue said: “The case will be vigorously defended. The  Local Property Tax is provided for in legislation and people are required by law  to pay the charge.”

Just over half of the 1.6million households liable have paid with two weeks  left to pay

Austerity demonstration in Dublin to-day

By Thomás O Cléirigh


Campaign against the Irish Poll taxes :
Thousands turned out to-day in Dublin to protest against the imposed taxes on the Irish people on behalf of the Troika. These unelected gangsters have bought and paid the local politicians and Ireland has now a puppet Government carrying out the Dictates of Berlin.
The Irish people are now the cash cow that the bondholders are squeezing dry with the help of the collaborators in Leinster House and the top Union Bosses who are just as bad and the traitors Noonan and Kenny not to mention Gilmore. This is just the start !

The leaked European Commission document into Ireland’s economy

From: The Journal.ie 

OVER THE PAST three days, TheJournal.ie has brought you extensive coverage of a leaked European Commission report into Ireland’s economy.

The draft report goes into detail about suggestions and criticisms for how Ireland is proceeding after the 2010 bailout and where more money could be saved. In it, the Troika recommends extensive cuts to doctors’ salaries and the cost of medicine, further pay cuts for all public sector workers and legal rules which would require local authorities to break even.

It alo reveals how the Department of Social Protection is planning to hire private companies to find work for the long-term unemployed, and documents the Irish government’s fear of a mass boycott over the planned water charges………………

BUDGET: Gilmore has hung ordinary workers out to dry

Eamon Gilmore, leader of the Irish Labour Part...

Eamon Gilmore, leader of the Irish Labour Party, at the party’s 2010 conference. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

“LABOUR is the party of work.” That was one of Eamon Gilmore’s mantras in last year’s General Election as he tried to convince voters that he was the man to fix our unemployment crisis.

Today the Tanaiste might want to consider giving his organisation a change of name — because this is a Budget that savages the ordinary worker and will leave more people in danger of getting ensnared in a poverty trap.

Labour’s proudest boast is that it managed to protect the core weekly pay rates for social welfare recipients.

When you look at what they had to sacrifice instead, however, this looks like a pretty hollow victory. The junior coalition partners apparently had no great problem with the PRSI increases that will cost every single worker above the minimum wage an extra €264 — no matter whether they are earning €20,000 or €20m a year………………………………
