Well well, the establishment have made a mess out of Nama, two men have been charged in the North with fraud in respect to the sale of Nama’s Northern loan book. It was sold for less than one third of its book value of sterling $4.5 billion. Basically sold for a song to a American company Cerebus who obviously got a bargain. Wouldn’t you make a “killing” here if you had the credit rating. Mick Wallace then TD now MEP raised the matter in 2015 in the Dail that one politician got over £7 million lodged in a Isle of Man bank account obvious kick-back or “Success fee” as the politicians call them.
You have the Vista of state assets being sold for way less than their worth and then the “state” paying three times the price when it comes to the National Broadband Plan- € 3 billion when Eir (formerly Eircom ) said they would do it for €1 billion, big difference what ?
The Broadband plan and that National children’s hospital are obvious examples of waste and government corruption. What country can be run this way, One that ends up being bankrupt ! One that needs the Troika (The EU, the ECB and the IMF) to bail it out and put the citizenry even deeper in debt.
TD Mick Wallace ‘told he would be “sorted” for raising issues on sale of NAMA Northern loan book’ – Dáil hears
Here is a remark made by one Francie Molloy Sinn féin MP for “Mid Ulster” on the Good Friday Agreement. Mr Molloy now says that Sinn féin got nothing in the agreement with both governments prevaricating about a Border poll. One wonders what took him this long to get this revelation about the GFA, a rather one sided agreement which shored up the Orange state. In fact “nationalists” seemed to have given up on a United Ireland in return for power sharing with loyalist politicians. Despite this power sharing has been on and off during the last twenty years .
I have heard the Good Friday Agreement described as a “False Peace” a agreement made by bribing one side to accept unacceptable conditions lies and half truths. In this agreement the principle of “Consent” is established in that the majority of Northern Ireland have to consent to a United Ireland for it to happen. Who consented to “Northern Ireland” in the first place ? Answer Nobody, it was conceived against the wishes of the majority of Irish people who were never allowed a vote on it.
My opinion is that the clock should be rewound and that Irish people are allowed to vote if they want a border or not in a Fair and free referendum. Thus the principle of “Consent” is established for all to see. The Good Friday Agreement made a United Ireland almost impossible to achieve and gave the “South” all the legitimacy of a reservation or more accurately one of those black homelands in apartheid South Africa.
Bertie Ahern and Gerry Adams are happy to be the big knobs in the free state but the time is coming when the boat will be rocked and both Mr Ahern and Mr Adams and others will be overboard.
July has passed and officially the summer of 2020 is over, though August a month of Autumn is more or less regarded as a summer month. Well where did the summer of 2020 go ? We got a nice May and a not bad April but after the first week of June the summer seemed absent and we got a lot of rain. Not ideal as the co-vid restrictions will make a lot of people have to holiday at home and having good weather would be rather nice . No such luck though and the rain continues . Interesting i have heard that the hotels despite missing many tourists are still charging over €300/night and some self catering charging €120-€150 a night pretty steep what ? No bargains there ! We have alot to learn about affordability and value for money, definitely. May be next year will be better, don’t we say that all the time ?
