I am trying to understand the Irish mindset after further announcement today of job losses and Nama approval.
If things werent bad enough the EU today just gave permission for the Irish government to land further debt on every man woman and child living in Ireland. At the same time we learn of further companies entering administration and Post Bank pulling out of Ireland.
Add all this to the continued poor economic data and outlook for this country and rolling strikes next week by the public service one wonders why the Irish people continue to put up with the Shinanigans of the Irish government.
Every Irish citizen from middle income to welfare dependent have been hit hard by the policies of this government, and yet the very highest paid people of this country continue to enjoy the good times.
Why are Irish people putting up with this? Why havent the public striked or called demonstrations? Why havent the people on welfare come togeather and created a pressure group? So many why`s and yet the people continue to suffer and the government just appeat to get away with it.
Its very ironic that a person who is in court for debts that cannot be paid because of the economic situation in Ireland will ultimately have their case decided by a judge who continues to earn over €100,000 per year!
What is so wrong with Irish people that we continue to put up with this and yet we see demonstrations against head shops and in some cases extreme acts of violence taken against them! I wonder about peoples priorites.
How much further damage will FF be allowed to do before people start to stop them?
