Irishmen! Drive the slavers into the sea!

The £41bn of bank bailout money owed by Ireland already works out at £17,000 a head; now the Irish are being urged to borrow a further £21bn, which by my reckoning would take each Irish taxpayer to a personal liability of  around £25,700. 


However, the Irish government may be acting unlawfully; S.1(a) of the UN 1956 Supplementary Convention on the Abolition of Slavery states;

Each of the States Parties to this Convention shall take all practicable and necessary legislative and other measures to bring about progressively and as soon as possible the complete abolition or abandonment of the following institutions and practices, where they still exist and whether or not they are covered by the definition of slavery contained in article 1 of the Slavery Convention signed at Geneva on 25 September 1926:
(a) Debt bondage, that is to say, the status or condition arising from a pledge by a debtor of his personal services or of those of a person under his control as security for a debt, if the value of those services as reasonably assessed is not applied towards the liquidation of the debt or the length and nature of those services are not respectively limited and defined;
For the government to pledge that future generations of Irishmen will work six months of each year purely to pay off the interest on this unsustainable debt is not just like debt bondage, it is debt bondage.  


Irishmen, unite. You have nothing to lose but these chains of debt. Be damned the banks, be damned the EU; you have your native soil, your genius and two thousand years tenure of your land; expel the slavers from your shores, drive the EU slave masters into the sea, pull down the banks. And we in England will stand with you.

I hope the Irish agree; it's possible the Portuguese may come to the same conclusions.

Dare we hope that the whole hateful edifice might collapse in a heap some time soon?

Champagne's on me if it does.

Don't worry, Cammo will bail them out with UK taxpayer's money. Sorry I meant more UK taxpayer's money.

It took then time to boot the Brits out and how they loved that but 50 years later signed up to a new master.
Never understood that, unless we understand who actually runs Ireland.
The farmers and big businessmen have much to answer for.

The people of Ireland, should indeed say bollox to the EU and forge their own way, why not?
With close historical links to the States and the UK, who needs the corrupt control freakery of the Brussels nutters?

I'm not at all sure we will. There is a growing unrest that we could be sucked (or is that suckered?) into yet another morrass of debt. Only this time it is another country's debt.

We're heading down hill as it stands and we cannot, as a sovreign nation, be bullied by the EU into supporting a country that was made of straw to start with. Celtic Tiger? Years ago, I was invited to take up a managerial post in telecoms in Dublin. I went over for the discussion (it wasn't an interview) and saw the Tiger for what it really was - a paper tiger. Needless to say, I din't join.

Ireland, like Portugal, Greece and Spain, is the architect of its own downfall. Also, they were not forced to join the EU, but they were lured in by the glistening riches in the form of EU handouts that would fund their largesse. From individuals to households; from households to local government; and from local government to central government, the corollory is the same. If you spend more than you earn; and if your debts are greater than your assets, you will end up in shit street.

Harsh words from Coney Island - but they go with the harsh realities.

The Iron Curtain began dropping quickly and silently.
The Berlin wall came down all of a sudden.
The EU will collapse in a similar fashion.
There will be no warning, no markers, no 'expert opinion' all that will happen is enough people will say NO and down it comes.

Actaully, immediately they kicked "the Brits" out, they enslaved themselves to a much worse master.
The cruel. lying and corrupt RC church.
Having, at last, got rid of the tyrrany of the Balck Crows - Ireland has new masters.

Sad, isn't it?

Slavery never ended.

Just to make sure it didn't, the pope in 1302 issued a Papal Bull called "Unam Sanctum".

You might want to look it up.

That Bull says that "everything, from the highest mountain to the depths of the sea, all animals, all men, all women, all property, belongs to the Vatican".

When you read it bear in mind the old legal maxim "He who does not disagree, agrees".

Back in 1302, no-one disagreed.

On July 15th 2009, I disagreed.

CR.

Boidica did not prevail against the first invasion of the Roman Empire and it will be difficult to prevail against the most recent reincarnation of the Roman/German Empire unless the Empire manages to fail on its own first. Keep hope alive that it does.

Time we started having some middle east style uprisings. The Eurozone xan (and will)collapse. According to something an American contact is whispering to me a dollar crisis is brewing and that could well be the trigger.

That is truly shocking news. As if there isn't enough trouble over there already. What was the name of that compulory government loan scheme in Argentina where people had to hand over their savings to the government and they got something like 6% return on it? A bit like a compulsory gilt?

Sounds like Ireland isn't far from that.
