Thread: Are the Banks, Dáil Éireann, the PS, the Semi-States and the Media Just one big 'Clique'?

  1. #1

    Default Are the Banks, Dáil Éireann, the PS, the Semi-States and the Media Just one big 'Clique'?

    Are the Banks, Dáil Éireann, the PS, the Semi-States and the Media Just one big 'Clique'?

    A BIG 'Clique'...that you, the electorate, the bill and Tax payers are not part of?

    It would seem to me that whilst there are many people who benefit from the above there are many more who do not.

    We see Ireland regressing socially, competitively, structurally and morally as society becomes ever more polarised, but yet certain sections of society do not have to worry too much as the cost of perpetuating their existence, position, standing charges, quarterly fees, licence fees, salary scales, increment payments and pension payments will fall to you, the bill and tax payer.

    How do you feel about picking up the tab for a private members club?

    How do you feel about the BIG 'Clique'?

    What of your children? Do they deserve to inherit bills from the BIG 'Clique'?

    Do you deserve better?

    Is there a barely visible but highly effective 'Clique' operating within your 'democracy'?

    "Every clique is a refuge for incompetence. It fosters corruption and disloyalty, it begets cowardice, and consequently is a burden upon and a drawback to the progress of the country. Its instincts and actions are those of the pack."

    What are your thoughts on the bolded statement and is there, in fact, a 'Clique'?

    Yeah it's great. Sure I'm feckin minted so I am. Recession me hole. We often get together stone cutters style and laugh and laugh whilst burning fifties for the Craic. I often meet with ministers and people in all sections of the civil service and public service where we sacrifice a private baby to our dark gods.

    Yes there is - to the exclusion of many. I touched on the subject here and here's a great blog related to the topic.

    And we have a secret handshake also and wear fáinnes on our pyjamas.

    I misread the title as "Are the blacks..."


    Clearly I spend too much time on this site.
