When Norway discovered oil and gas off its coast, it promptly Semi/Nationalized it.
Bringing in experts from Multinational Oil companies, it founded
Statoil and used its resources to build it's own economy - Including the revenue earned by Statoil in Ireland.
Ireland is the only country in the world that gave it's
Oil/Gas resources away for NOTHING.
Yes, we will get Corporation Tax similar to that which we
receive from any Multinational, but the raw resource is given to Shell for nothing.
The man who signed this economically suicidal agreement?
Zanu Fianna Fáil's Ray Burke, the only Minister (so far)to be given
a jail sentence for fraud.
This so called "governing" of this country is such a sick joke !!!
