“When the U.S. sneezes, the rest of the world catches cold.” 

For us here in Ireland this news from America is extremely important everything from Jobs, negative equity, Bank failures, credit availability and strikes.
Not so long ago, there was a saying “When the U.S. sneezes, the rest of the world catches cold.” The bad news is that America has pneumonia, so where does that leave us???
For us here in Ireland this is a flavour of what we are about to get, don’t believe the spin from the vested interests and government cronies
The news media here in Ireland is controlled by the government and they have their lackeys well placed throughout the country
Keep yourselves informed by looking and searching for the real facts and figures.

Stop the rhetoric!

With so much debt sloshing around and the total control of the news media we the people are being fed Spin,

Water charges ‘to raise €1bn’

The Government said it intends to raise as much as €1 billion per annum from water metering charges when they are introduced, Minister for Environment John Gormley said this morning.

Gormley is expected to bring proposals to Government in the coming weeks for the installation of water meters in 1.1 million homes connected to the public water mains supply.

Many householders around the country are still experiencing water shortages two weeks after the end of the severe weather conditions due to burse pipes and leaks.

Minister Gormley described as “shocking” the percentage or water which is lost annually due to defective pipes, and said that situation must be rectified immediately.

Earlier today the minister announced that investment in replacing defective water mains will increase to €300million over the next three years.

He also said that his department was examining options to ensure delivering of metering and that roll out of meters will likely begin next year.

“We’ve taken the decision now to introduce water metering in this country which will be done on the basis of an allocation of water to each household and you pay above that,”.

To All TD’s

Give us jobs, results, not SoundBits!

The Government is busy telling us, they must fix the banking system first and then the finances of the country

This is all well and dandy but what about the likes of the hundreds of thousands of people like me who are unemployed?

Mr Cowen got up in the Dail yesterday and told the people that FAS was delivering courses for the unemployed. This is not what my personal experience shows

FAS was to do a course on web design ,starting on Sep 28th ,I applied for this course in February ,I heard nothing until I complained about the lack of information to FAS and I was called to an assessment exam just two weeks before the course was to begin

Here I was told that the course I was supposed to attend was no longer available; it was cancelled just like that

The FAS teacher went on to tell approximately 28 other people in the class that FAS was cancelling many more courses because of their budget problems

We were then told that the original course was now just 12 weeks (instead of 37 weeks ) and that the modules that were taken out were now included in the new requirements all candidates would have to have to attend the NEW 12 week course

All they did was to cut the original course from 37 weeks to 12 weeks to save money

Needless to say I was not successful in getting on to the new course because of these late changes!

I have heard from FAS in the last week informing me of a part  time course again which is of no use to me as it will not result in me getting any job

What a Joke cutting courses when they should be putting on more courses that have real job’s prospects at the end of such courses

We need Jobs and not time wasting courses that are just filling in the rhetoric of out of touch politicians

An educated, available workforce, is more likely to be offered jobs

We need up skilling and re-education as a matter of national emergency

Where do we fit into your National Emergency Plan???
