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

Troika doubts over Croke Park

Serious misgivings have emerged about the scale of savings being achieved under the Croke Park agreement in advance of the latest troika visit to assess progress under the bailout.

It is understood that experts from the European Union, International Monetary Fund and European Central Bank are becoming increasingly frustrated with how the Coalition is implementing the bailout by cutting services to the public rather than tackling vested interests in the public service and professions.
While the troika is satisfied that overall targets for deficit reduction are being met, there is concern at the way they are being achieved, according to sources involved in the process. It is also understood that there is concern about the budget overruns in health.
Signs of growing discontent have also emerged on the Fine Gael backbenches, with several TDs becoming increasingly critical of the Government’s approach to making savings in the public service pay bill.
Confirmation by chairman of the implementation body PJ Fitzpatrick to the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) that increments and allowances are not part of the Croke Park deal has aggravated Fine Gael TDs. The disclosure that departments are calculating savings made………………………………..

Noonan and the rest of the misfits in Government is outright scandalous and
totally immoral the state the country is in!

“The second area is what we can do at the euro area level to create jobs, basically by increasing investment and enhancing infrastructures. There are many proposals, such as increasing the European Investment Bank (EIB) action and redirecting the EU funds towards the low income areas. When we talk about infrastructure and fiscal consolidation, it is certainly much better to consolidate through the reduction of expenditure, especially current expenditure and not capital or investment expenditure, rather than through increases in taxes” ECB president Mario Draghispeaking in May 2012

“Point One – Protecting and creating jobs. Because jobs and opportunity are the best chance of keeping our best asset – our young people – at home.  We plan to create 20,000 new jobs a year over the next four years. How? By cutting employers’ PRSI, by creating a welfare system that encourages work and by investing an extra €7 billion…

This is the real extent of the crimes committed by this government as they called for change and promised real change, but as we see, we got no change but more of the same “gombeen politics” and “stroke politics” when you are a member of the “insiders club” you get “looked after”
As for the rest of us we all get taken to the cleaners, to pay for the pensions and perks of the puppets now running our country !

The current political parties in government have no moral backbone and as such have no right to continue to govern .Allen Shatter outbursts about the latest murders in our streets is cold comfort to ordinary citizens who are watching the architects of our financial enslavement get rewarded by his colleagues in government. what hypocrites when will we see bankers and corrupt politicians get some street justice????

This information is already in the public domain but until now hasn’t been available online. It is correspondence which evidences the salaries paid to NAMA developers and it has just now been published by the Oireachtas Committee of Public Accounts, commonly called the PAC. It is correspondence received by the PAC in July from NAMA’s Martin Whelan – he’s the former CIF communications chief who was recruited as NAMA’s Relationship Manager in January 2012, though he seems to have recently acquired a bit of an empire and his title has become Head of Relationship Management. His job is to maintain good relations with politicians – NAMA recently refused in a parliamentary question to say how much the Relationship Department at NAMA was costing (us!), citing data protection – no, seriously!

The correspondence shows the gross salaries drawn by developers – referred to as “principals” by NAMA. The most eye-catching figures…

Mr Justice Seamus Hughes and the Neanderthal man

By thejournal.ie

THERE HAVE BEEN calls for a District Court judge to resign after he described Travellers as being “Neanderthal men… abiding by the laws of the jungle”.

Mr Justice Seamus Hughes, a former Fianna Fáil TD,

is reported as criticising a defendant who appeared before Athlone District Court, saying:

Nobody has indicated it to me, but I suspect he comes from a certain ethnic background that would give him even more form given the type of behaviour in which some of them engage… As I’ve described it before, they are like Neanderthal men living in the long grass, abiding by the laws of the jungle.

Pavee Point, an advocacy group for Travellers, said that it would be difficult for Travellers to believe that they could get a fair trial under Judge Hughes following the ………..

Comment:

On closer inspection what we have here is a failed Fianna Fail insider, Gombeen, fixer, parish pump politician expressing his own deep prejudice against a fellow citizen. This gobshite should be removed forthwith from the bench .I would like to know how he got his promotion who “looked after” this failed moron Fianna Fail politician by giving him this consolation post (It this another example of Jobs for the Boys????)

This trumped up gombeen and the rest of the criminal elite running the country are the real menace to Irish society, their behaviour in government has robbed countless families of their ability to support their families and have financial slaves of our entire nation.

The likes of this prat has ironically been put into the position of casting judgement over citizens who never had a fair start in life in the first place! The Fianna Fail, Fine Gael and the Labour self-serving political leaches are the real criminals and they are the

Neanderthal men living in the long grass, abiding by the laws that suite themselves “.

The Irish constitution guarantees that all of the citizens of the republic will be treated equally and I have never come across a section of our community who are more honourable! This failed gombeen politician is not worthy to unite  the shoe laces of the man he has described as a Neanderthal  

That damned, elusive stinking snail (Minister James Reilly)

“We seek him here, we seek him there, and those Irish senior citizens seek him everywhere. Is he in heaven? – Is he in hell? That damned James Reilly, that stinking snail “

Government needs to give treaty a harder look

KIERAN ALLEN

OPINION: The Coalition’s argument for a Yes vote demands more scrutiny before Thursday

THE GOVERNMENT only has one argument in favour of the fiscal treaty: If we vote No, we will be unable to borrow money to fund public services. There will be no stability and so the ATM machines will seize up.

The Government’s case comes down to access to the European Stability Mechanism fund. This is a €700 billion firewall that euro zone governments can draw on if other borrowing costs are too high.

Until recently Fine Gael and Labour claimed that Ireland would not need a second IMF– ECB-European Commission programme of cuts. They argued that austerity would produce a recovery by giving confidence to investors. They are now saying though that Ireland may need “insurance” and the only way to guarantee access is by voting Yes.

This argument demands far more scrutiny. When terms such as a “second bailout” are used, it suggests that the IMF and commission are trying to help the Irish population. In reality, a second programme would involve even more stringent conditions.

The ESM treaty – which is due to be voted on in the Dáil after the referendum – states that the funds would come with “strict conditionality”
