    Default Developers laughing at us!

    For months I have warned people that NAMA is all about buying time and saving developers. I warned people that these criminals would transfer all their wealth offshore or to family members. Now we see Liam Carroll has transferred millons worth of property to his wife. Seanie Dunnes wife is the beneficial owner of €60 million worth of real estate in ballsbridge (all this on a journalists salary!!!!!). Baldy Quinlan has done a runner to Switzerland where his children are in exclusibve privtae schools. There is nothing in NAMA about going after the developers. The banks have no incentive to chase them as they will have been paid for the loans and any monies collected would go to NAMA. The government could have frozen assets and declared that all assets transfers to family members etc for the past 5 years would be declared null and void if the transferor had impaired loans. Nothing was done and now we are being screwed with taxes, children having their allowance cut, children denied cancer vaccines and special needs classes being decimated.
    Its not just Fianna Fail/Greens that are guilty. Where is the opposition outrage? Why is Alan 'Dublin mountain ride fan' Dukes not expelled from Fine Gael for consenting to Anglo Irish offering €68 million to Liam Carroll? Is it because Sutherland and Gleeson still carry weight (no pun intended) in the party?

    Oldira, welcome to the conscious world. Wake up and smell the corruption. THis should not be a surprise to you. Really, it shouldn't. Scams, dodgy deals, brown envelopes, conflicts of interest, blatant corruption and iffy bailouts are the dirty washing that festoons the interface between Irish politics and Irish business and have been for decades. Get used to it. It will only get worse because people keep voting for it.

    I think the Developers AND the politicians (90% of them at least) are laughing at us.

    This big speech on 16 September had better deal with all of these issues. If necessary, have a referendum to underpin the legislation, and make NAMA's claims on any collateral, retrospective. There should be no excuses.

    Where is the anger? These people are stealing billons while The Monk et al only ever stole a few million. This is a massive conspiracy against the people and that amounts to treason.

    Absolutely. All the drugs gangs put together are just alter boys compared to the criminals who run this sad country - the landowners and their bankers, along with their cowardly footmen, Fianna Fáil.

    Oh I dare say one or two developers are s******************************ing behind their hands at the scam their mates in govt are arranging for them.

    The s******************************ing will stop when one of them turns up face down in a ditch.

    I can really see this happening.
