Thread: Who Are The Primary Recipients And Beneficiaries Of The Bailout Agreement

  1. #1

    Default Who Are The Primary Recipients And Beneficiaries Of The Bailout Agreement

    Generations yet to be born will continue to pay for the excesses and orgy of greed by some in the last decade in Ireland. Now one has to wonder who the primary recipients and beneficiaries of the bailout agreement actually are.

    I come up with the following list:

    1. Politicians
    2. Bankers
    3. Property Developers
    4. Public Sector Workers
    5. Social Welfare Recipients
    6. Quangos

    Am I missing anyone?

    There are of course secondary recipients and beneficiaries such as the legal and media profession which could be named as well.

    You forgot those with depositors in our banks, hundreds of thousands of people.
    Farmers who get 1.5 billion agricultural subsidies.

    The food sector which uses agri produce as a raw material supporting 250,000 jobs
    Those on scoial welfare benefits some 2,000,000 people who get benefits totaling 21 billion each year.

    The idea that people who have lost their jobs and are now on social welfare or public sector workers who have all taken pay cuts totalling around 15% are somehow deemed to be one of the primary beneficiaries of the bailout is just beyond stupid.

    The bond holders are the biggest winners.

    Are these EU subsidies you are referring to or local Irish subsidies?

    2,000,000 people get benefits totaling 21 billion each year? that includes rent allowances, child benefits, education grants and everything else ?

    Northern Ireland - without forgiveness, there is dysfunctionality.

    Welfare Mamas need your assistance. In desperate need. As much as they can get.



    Now, get back to work, and pay up.

    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    Strange how it is 2 million when handing out benefits, yet it is less than 350,000 when the jobless figure is announced.
