A Short List Of Elected Antics

Listed below is just some of the many past and present government party antics in Ireland. The bad elected would rather not be reminded of the following as they will again be seeking your vote, espousing (yet again) that they have changed! 

Fine Gael:

* Up to necks in corruption, cronyism & nepotism?
* Allowed the Troika (banks) in.
*Saddled the citizens with €64 Billion of debt that was not theirs created but told to pay.

* Water re-charging, household tax, levies and 40+ other upped taxes besides more financial taking inventions.
* Taking of Denis O’Brien money – all legal.
* The allowing of a media mogul to repeatedly buy more and more Ireland media despite 2011 stating they would stop him. Was this before or after he gave money to them and Lowry?
* The €1 Million public money facelift for the FG HQ.
* Odd circumstances about Eamons Gilmore’s wife to gain a €92,000 state job – and letting it then come to pass?
* Too busy continuing an agenda of state privatisation by back-door.
* With others, yearly upping again, their own pay while citizens have not seen a pay increase since 2008.
* All too quiet about other parties in government corruption and immoral antics.
* Not defending a TD’s right to speak in the Dail. Kenny went missing in action for seven days instead!
* Allowing too many companies to use complete fiction regarding addresses, offices and staff, to massive tax dodge to the tune of over 300 Billion! Turned a blind eye to it all.
* Too busy cow-towing to EU heads and also handing over Irish budget to them for their approval before they even show it to fellow elected and share with the Ireland citizens!
* Seeing 20 Garda waste six months over one TD delayed for an hour and who had an empty water balloon thrown at her! Not forgetting about dragging kids out of their beds in the early hours of the morn like they were big drug criminals!
* Quicker to jail TV licence non-payers than bankers who screwed the public out of Billions of Euro.
* Did bugger all to stop the Eircode farce come in and continue still!
* Helped create the state conditions that sees one in ten cannot afford food.
* Not only screwed up the HSE despite promising to tackle it – they made it far worse – of course, now ripe for privatisation more!
* Wanted to abolish the Seanad – so that that watchdog could not interfere also with the TTIP agenda being rammed in quietly?
* Created the worst homelessness crises in the history of the state?
* Still charging (only county in EU) for FOI access. Bugger all information them made available!
* Assisted Fianna Fail and Labour in passing on the very last day of the 2011 Dail, a law that allowed them all to hide their expenses antics from the public a lot more.
* Along with other parties in government, allowed priests and their orgs to escape legal prosecution. Allowed the orgs total escape paying €1,4 Billion that they were supposed to pay back to state! They still all too quiet on that issue too.
* All too quiet and no Garda investigation over what happened on the days surrounding the bank-bailout that set the state into crises for years!
* Inventing expensive, toothless Dail inquiries, one after another!
* The Ansbacher tax dodging affair buried from public eye.
* The massive Anglo loans gained by simple phone call with little or no paperwork?
