Irish Labour Party Budget Tells Youth Phuk Off and Don't Come Back

....And Don't Come Back

I couldn't help but notice, the difference in one of Ayman Al Gilmore's old parties alternative budget and his government's budget today. He is obviously a me feiner, riding the Irish working class and feeding off old comrades wounds but then that's the story of Ireland, isn't it? The Labour party have no shame have they? They are an obvious gang of fatbarsturds, who people are stupid enough to vote for and are prime meat for a revolution! Anyway here's a summary:

I couldn't help but notice, the difference in one of Ayman Al Gilmore's old parties alternative budget and his government's budget today. He is obviously a me feiner, riding the Irish working class and feeding off old comrades wounds but then that's the story of Ireland, isn't it? The Labour party have no shame have they? They are an obvious gang of fatbarsturds, who people are stupid enough to vote for and are prime meat for a revolution! Anyway here's a summary:

"Executive Summary:

* Due to the failed ideology and failed politics of this government the Irish people, through the Irish Parliament, are no longer free to construct our own budget without big brother IMF/ECB/European Commission dictating.

* As 2/3 of the budget deficit is the result of the bank bailout we must ensure that this never happens again and demand a referendum to place the public good above the rights of private profit..

* Job creation is our central demand – We cannot shrink our way out of this recession.

* The expansion of our state companies is the central plank of our jobs policy

* The nationalisation of our oil and gas and the creation of a State Energy Company is a further step to energy security and long term employment.

* The utilisation of the NBRF to act as a National Employment Investment Fund – to be administered on a commercial basis.

* No reduction in old age or disability pensions or in unemployment benefit / allowance.

* Reverse the cuts in carers’ allowances and conditions

* An equitable tax system.

* A third tax band of 50% to be introduced. The threshold would be set at the level of 250% of the Average Industrial Wage.

* An end to the “Tax fugitive” system

* Introduction of a wealth tax

* Eliminate all non-productive tax allowances and eliminate al tax allowances that are a direct or indirect subsidy to the private sector.

* Oppose residential property tax or Service charges.

* Maintain funding to our public health and education system – end funding to private health and education.

* Completely separate the private and public health system.

* De-bureaucratise the HSE

* End the scandal of a €0.5 billion annual subsidy to private landlords – invest the money in public sector housing.

* Upgrade our private housing stock through a subsidised insulation scheme

* Modernise our water network

* State supervised scheme of re-negotiated mortgage terms for family homes in negative equity and mortgage difficulty."

They are chasing the small pennies,how about introducing an arts tax for the likes of bono and chaset the big fish.

I notice they applied no cuts to themselves either,the government came out unscathed in all this austerity.

We live in an increasingly and worryingly an inequal society. They are making it worse,and flexing their muscles making a point of not cutting their wage yet cutting ours.

If we had any sense we would all be out on the streets. F##ck the divide and conquer method they are trying on us,f##ck the class wars they are trying to manipulate on us.

We need to unify and point the finger at them.

They didnt even introduce an arts tax on bono and the like,they would get better yields chasing after big fish, they clearly havent thought it through properly enough.

Chasing the small pennies and leaving us one cent away from homelessness.

We need to protest there is one on the 16th im sure there will be other dates - the meeting point is outside the dail . Be there i will!

Everywhere we look the banks are calling the shots and causing problems. We need a revolution, nothing less will do and until the Irish people grow balls like Clare Daly the island will continue to be an asylum for work slaves and the elite! Man up Peasants !

The harsh reality is that the vast majority of people in this 'society' don't give a damn about anyone but themselves. If I was in my twenties, I would sod off pdq. The so called labour party like all other social democratic parties sold out a long time ago. The abolition of the phone allowance for OAP's speaks for itself. Thatcher would be proud of them.

"The government should create, issue, and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the buying power of consumers. -- The privilege of creating and issuing money is not only the supreme prerogative of government, but it is the government's greatest creative opportunity. -- By the adoption of these principles... the taxpayers will be saved immense sums of interest. Money will cease to be master and become the servant of humanity." — Abraham Lincoln

The above excerpt is from an e-mail sent to a group of TDs (Republic of Ireland MPs) on May 16th 2012 which included Clare Daly TD.

A full copy of the e-mail in question -- which is now approximately 17 months old -- can be seen at:
http://www.humanrightsireland.com/DailEireannGroup/16Ma...l.htm

Not knowing very much about Clare Daly (almost nothing in reality), I have often wondered why she (and so many of her TD colleagues) keep on, and on -- and on -- COMPLETELY IGNORING the high-quality and exceptionally valuable information of the "Abraham Lincoln" kind provided above? Particularly when there is such a desperate need during recent years to treat it with the utmost seriousness?

While genuinely hoping that I'm wrong, I can't help feeling that it might be a question of "ALL mouth and NO action"?

Or, is there some other reason? Something more subtle and much less obvious perhaps?

I'd really love to know the truth of the matter.

In any event, I hope that Clare Daly TD and her TD (and Senator) colleagues in Dáil Éireann might SOON prove me wrong regarding my "all mouth and no action" fears regarding the above-mentioned "Abraham Lincoln" information.

I believe Comrade Finnerty the video below demonstrates you analysis is incorrect. Her stance on several issues is non-populist and requires considerable courage.

Brian,

I have watched the video (which I had not seen before), and I would be inclined to give Clare Daly TD -- and indeed the Russian interviewer who interviewed her -- "10 out of 10" for the important issues and questions raised, and the way Clare Daly responded to them.

However, and in so far as I know, Clare Daly TD has never expressed the SLIGHTEST interest in ANY of the issues that I have raised in my Wed Oct 16, 2013 13:01 Indymedia (Ireland) comment at http://www.indymedia.ie/article/104170#comment297387, and for that I would give her and all the rest of her Dáil Éireann colleagues "0 out of 10".

Your reply gives no clue as to why Clare Daly TD -- and all the other occupants of Dáil Éireann -- are COMPLETELY IGNORING all of the issues I have raised at http://www.indymedia.ie/article/104170#comment297387

Presumably, and among other things, they all intend to leave us all at the mercy of the corruption-and-crime-ridden banksters -- and the corruption-and-crime-ridden-members of our legal profession who facilitate them with unconstitutional legislation (for example) -- so that we, and future generations of ours, can be sunk deeper and deeper into the cunningly contrived debt-slavery of the banksters and their "ruling-elite" accomplices and supporters in the legal profession and in the MSM (Main Stream Media): even though there is national and international legislation ALREADY in place (much of it for several DECADES now!!) which could be used to prevent such criminal abuse.

For those who can see it, it's worth mentioning here perhaps that the much wished for (by some) "Strike on Syria" (mentioned in the Clare Daly interview) appears to have been halted, and possibly fully extinguished (?) with any luck, by the way the Russian Administration under President Putin very skilfully confronted the "Western Warmongers" with the contents of the UN Charter: a part of which (the opening text of the Preamble in fact) I am reproducing in the section just below:

=== === ===

to save succeeding generations from the scourge of war, which twice in our lifetime has brought untold sorrow to mankind, and

to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, and

to establish conditions under which justice and respect for the obligations arising from treaties and other sources of international law can be maintained, and

to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,


The above text in this section has all come from the following UN www location: http://www.un.org/en/documents/charter/preamble.shtml

=== === ===

Plain, sensible, "open and honest" talking of Clare Daly's kind is an absolute must for any worthwhile politician (in my opinion); but, UNLESS such very worthwhile and sincere talk is powerfully underpinned by clear reference to the relevant national and international law which supports such talk, the "ruling elites" and their MSM friends will easily continue to find ways around it: as they have been doing for centuries now.

My big hope, for "humanity as a whole" that is, is that politicians like Clare Daly will use the law to support their words in future, much much more so than any politicians (that I know of) in the Republic of Ireland and elsewhere (apart from Russia) have been doing to date: and, having due regard for the fact that the "www communications system" makes this much easier to do now than it ever has been before the relatively very recent arrival of "The Internet Age".

In this, it seems to me that the present Russia Administration is setting a very good and timely example that fits in well with the arrival of "The Internet Age", and which the "elected representatives" of all other nation states (including the Republic of Ireland) will hopefully -- as far as I'm concerned at least -- follow and supplement in socially constructive ways.

Who knows what good -- for "humanity as a whole", and for "Life on Earth" generally -- could come from "small nations" and "big nations" providing support for each other in such ways: WAYS which HOLISTICALLY support national and international HUMAN RIGHTS LAW (framed by the UN Charter), that is?

William the report below by Stephen Rogers gives me a lot of hope that the Irish people will fight back.
[[quote]]The group, which calls itself People of Éire, said the plenary summons lodged on behalf of a young Cork couple will be the first of a number against financial institutions to be lodged over the coming weeks.
People of Éire said the cases “will seek to expose a number of issues surrounding the economic collapse of Ireland. The cases will deal with a number of different areas, including the damage to the rights of the borrower, the breach of regulatory requirements, the breach of acts and statues relating to company law and financial reporting”.
It also said it expected “numerous criminal complaints relating to individuals within the banking sector will be filed with An Garda Síochána”.
According to Claire Cullinane, one of the founders of Debt Options Ireland, which is a leading body behind People of Éire, said more than 500 people accompanied Macroom couple Patrice and Roy Keating, who are in their 20s, and their 14-month-old daughter Erin, to the High Court yesterday to lodge their summons.
She said that the two-page summons alleged, among other things, breach of trust, gross negligence, non-compliance with the code of conduct of the Central Bank, breach of consumer protection code, breach of accounting regulations, failure to disclose a liquidity or insolvency problem in a timely manner, and breach of contract.
Ms Cullinane said the crowd stayed in the car park to show as much respect for the court as they could.
“The whole High Court stopped,” she said. “All the windows opened in the courts and all the barristers and solicitors came out on the steps and listened and supported us.”
Ms Cullinane said the movement had started out of the need for people to support each other.
“For some, they are in trouble themselves,” she said. “The trouble there is some people cannot even read the paperwork anymore because they have become so overwhelmed.
“For others, they are dealing with illnesses such as cancer, heart attacks, and they are afraid of the paperwork running away on them. Local people in their area go in and help them go through whatever it is they need and then some people want to go through the whole way to taking a summons in the High Court and have a justifiable case to do so.
“Others are just happy to be able to breathe again. There is no judgment, it’s whatever people need.”
Ms Cullinane said she set up a training programme to help lay litigants and people in trouble.
“A part of my resumé would be as a therapist and I was seeing more and more people needed all kinds of therapies to deal with stress, but unfortunately they did not have the money to go to therapists,” she said.
“Part of the work I have done over the years is train international governments on stress management and creative thinking. It was time to put the boots on, get walking, and go out to the people rather than waiting for the people to come to me.
“Up to now, everything has been free. Everything within Debt Options is free because lay people were helping other lay people. Now it has moved forward because we have professional solicitors and barristers so everybody has come in as part of the company.
“The new body, People of Éire, has a donate button and everybody all over this country, and even emigrants abroad, can donate anything they want to the fund.”[[/quote]]

Reply to brionOcleirigh - All Voices at Thu Oct 17, 2013 13:58 ...

Thanks for reporting on the "People of Éire" group.

I had not heard of this Group before, and I hope they will be successful in their endeavours.

As I'm still very badly in need of help with my own particular situation, I sent an e-mail yesterday to them in the hope that the contents might be read by them, and, that if they can help, they will contact me.

For anybody interested, I used their "Time for Truth Campaign by the People of Eire" address: which I placed fist-in-line in the Bcc section of the e-mail reproduced at the www location just below, and which was addresses primarily to US President Barack Obama:
http://www.humanrightsireland.com/PresidentBarackObama/...l.htm

The same e-mail was copied to Republic of Ireland Chief Justice Susan Denham, in the hope that it might nudge her into doing something about the contents of the registered letter (in reality a printed and signed copy of an e-mail to her and several of her Government colleagues) I sent to her on September 20th 2013. There's a scanned copy at:
http://www.humanrightsireland.com/DrDeirdreHussey/20Sep...enham

So far, from my viewpoint at least, Chief Justice Denham appears to be COMPLETELY IGNORING the ENTIRE CONTENTS of the registered letter referred to at the www address just above.

How Chief Justice Susan Denham can STILL get away with completely ignoring such information is a very great and growing source of mystery to me.
