    Default Pat Cox & his links with the Christian Brothers

    On Prime Time last night it was made clear that moving assets into trusts is how the Christian brothers try to protect their assets worldwide while delaying and obfuscating compensation claims from victims of their abuse .

    The setting up last year of the Edmund Rice Trust and moving schools into it is a classic example of this cloak and dagger activity bereft of any morality.

    What shocks me is aman of standing such as Pat Cox is a director of this trust to give it respectability while in reality it is a sham?

    At one level there is nothing wrong of course being a board member of the Trust. However, if the Trust is a deliberatly opaque attempt to salt away assets from compensation by the Christian Brothers then that is another matter. However, that is not to say that Pat Cox is in anyway implicated in such an attempt. There is one aspect of the whole abuse saga and the assets particularly with the Christian Brothers, and that is looks as if that the monies paid by government for the welfare of the children in their care did go directly into subsidising the education of the middle classes and those in the professions, including the like of Pat Cox, and the building up their property portfolio.

    In the light of Pat Cox's name being mentioned with regard to a run for the Presidency, should not his links to the Christian Brothers, (and their efforts to try and protect their assets and stymie any compensation they may have to pay to abuse victims), be subject to some scrutiny?

    I'm living in America, and in America, you're on your own. America's not a country. It's just a business. Now f***ing pay me.
