    Default irish Independent calls bull On RTE and the Government

    Maybe just Maybe the Irish media is starting to wake up and realise that the people of Ireland are being taken for fools by RTE and the government.

    2 stories carried in todays Edition appear to be attacking both RTE and the Government.

    Could the tide be turning and time running out for this government?

    I see Labour have gone into sleep mode over this.

    Angela's ashes bury Kenny's illusion - Analysis, Opinion - Independent.ie

    Last Friday night,RTE's Six-One News gave Sharon Ni Bheolain a script which began as follows: "The German chancellor Angela Merkel appears to have created confusion around Irish hopes for a deal on bank debt." But of course, it was Enda Kenny and not Angela Merkel who had created the confusion.

    RTE News helped Kenny spread that confusion for the past five months. Every second bulletin seemed to begin with gung-ho stories about the bank debt deal from Sean Whelan, Paul Cunningham, and somewhat more restrained reports from Tony Connolly. Even even after Merkel dropped her bombshell on Friday afternoon, RTE News failed to come to terms with the fall-out.Friday's bulletin was full of fudge. We were told the Taoiseach felt it was "better not to be fixated on dates". Sean Whelan asked rhetorically how concerned should we be -- apparently not that much. Paul Cunningham said he'd been told (presumably by the Taoiseach's staff) that Merkel's statement merely concerned Spain.

    Appeasing Merkel has cost us the Bank deal

    'If middle Ireland takes to streets it's goodbye Fine Gael' - Minister

    IRELAND'S "social stability" will fragment into Greek-style street protests if the Government fails to get tough with Europe on the 64bn bank debt, Taoiseach Enda Kenny has been warned.

    Opposition leader Micheal Martin, along with a senior Fine Gaelminister, warned Mr Kenny that middle Ireland is at the brink and needs to "see light at the end of the tunnel."If we bring middle Ireland onto the streets then it will be 'Goodbye Fine Gael'," the Minister said.Banking expert and Fine Gael TD Peter Mathews yesterday said Mr Kenny's and Mr Noonan's overselling of the June 29 summit compared to Neville Chamberlain's appeasement policy before World the Second World War.He said: "Chamberlain innocently sold his people, a pup rather than face the stark reality in front of them. It is the same here now."Mr Kenny was"sucker-punched" by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who on Friday insisted that there would be no bailout of legacy bank debt, says TD Stephen Donnelly in today's Sunday Independent.

    Chamberlain's Britain? Vichy France? Why the sudden outbreak of ww2 analogies? Has Ireland Been sucked in to the Hadron Collider of Godwin's Law or are the same idiots who cheerled for the boom simply approaching the current mess with their customary sense of balance and wisdom.

    The original is "time and tide wait for no man" so what's your point with this version of it?

    Not just RTE, but the vast majority of the Irish media is complicit in the Euroscam. They have all played their part in bullying us, terrorising us and outright lying to us for treaty after treaty. And we've been more than willing to swallow it up.
    What have we got for our obedience? Nothing. We've been fukked like a cheap groupie slut and thrown out in the cold without breakfast. It was never going to be any other way. Why would the EU take some of our debts off our hands when we've already given them everything they want?
