Since the economic crash of 2007 anyone who's paid even the slightest attention will have a general idea of who wrecked the economy and how.
Bankers overseeing an import of unsustainable debt to fuel the property bubble of developers who grossly over-inflated the price of property in the knowledge they get whatever price they sought.
Politicians who facilitated this by introducing 'light touch' regulation and attacked anyone who tried to speak up against what was happening. The Politicians also allowed a third of the countries taxation base to be dependent on the contruction industry related tax, so when the crash happened it made the arrival of the IMF/Troika inevitable, or face an instant alternative of a 30% cut in EVERYTHING.
Media outlets who did nothing to highlight the scandal of 'light touch' regulation, or got amnesia when it came to how the heads of particular media outlets interacted corruptly with politicians, as found in the Mahon Tribunal.
6 years on, our country is still in trauma, it's people suffering terribly yet those responsible for causing this catastrophe continue on scot free, with little or no prospect of justice being served on them.
The politicians responsible have skipped off happily into retirement with nice big pensions, while others are plotting their comeback courtesy of the forgiving Irish public.
The bankers have secured a debt deal which will see them get all their money (with interest) back over the next 30 years, courtesy of a deal negotiated by the current Government. Those in place at the time of the crash have 'been removed'. (AKA given golden handshakes to retire quietly) In addition, there is no prospect of any of them facing justice for their part in wrecking the economy.
The media continue on their merry way generating and implementing their own agendas with the politicians in tow.
The people have been taxed to the hilt (with plenty more to come), lost their jobs, have been forced to emigrate, left with unsustainable debt ( some of the lucky ones will shortly have a debt forgiveness for rations deal). Our public services are being taken apart to generate the money to pay the bank debt. Everyone's giving out about Austerity but continue to vote for pro austerity parties in greater numbers.
What a Rotten Republic you have turned this country into.
EDIT: First proposed solution: Strip associated politician/bankers (FF/PD/GP, Anglo/ILP/AIB/BOI of their pensions (not deserved because of gross negligence, legislate to do it if required)
Second proposed solution: Put those above on trial for causing negligent damage to the State. Alternatively, put them on trial for economic treason.
Third option: Do nothing and wish them well in their retirements.
Oh, Happy Easter All !!!!!
