A Better Ireland

Should we be liable for any of the Banks bad debts?

Posted on | March 21, 2011 | No Comments

In an Interview over the weekend Minister Simon Coveney when talking about the new Government said “We don’t think that it’s fair or equitable that Irish taxpayers should be required to take on all of the debts associated with the mistakes made by Irish banks and by banks who lent money to Irish banks. “ his use of the word ”all” implies that the Minister believes that it’s fair and equitable that Irish taxpayers should be required to take on (some) of the debts associated with the mistakes made by Irish banks and by banks who lent money to Irish banks.

I would like the Minister to explain to us, the taxpayers, why it is fair that we should take on any of the banks bad debts, how much of the bad debts we should take on and what public services we should forego to pay this debt?

Welcome

to my site, having sat through the turmoil of the last few years, I'm frustrated, I want the Government out and out now, but having thought on it, I came to the realisation that there is no real alternative. All the political parties support and partake in this sham that we call Democracy. So that is why I have decided to run in the next General Election. I want to offer people of this constituency a REAL alternative. There are so many things that need fixing in this Country; the trouble is knowing where to start. I believe that what needs fixing first is our system of Government, giving the people of Ireland a real say in how this Country is run. Real local Government and a smaller National Government. that acts on National issues
