You know we Irish have faced the use of evictions as a punishment against its people for over 180 years when British landlords put people on the country path and caused over 2 million people, men, women and children to die of starvation or emigrate to far off places never to return, an event that was to haunt the Irish nation up to this day. At that time Ireland was a subservient state to the British establishment and its elites of lord this, baron that and Sir this and that , they held all the cards and we the Irish were the peasants and the dirt on which they walked, backed up by an army of red coats and blue coats and whatever your wearing yourself coats, that were used to plunder their crops especially corn, wheat, livestock. All of the small landholders were Irish catholic tenants of the elites, but as the potato crops had failed those years due to blight and as the landlords wanted these produce they rose the rent to a point that tenants could not pay them, they then evicted them, raped and murdered anyone Irish and catholic. There are still families in Ireland as their grandfathers /mothers reminisce about those times or when long lost cousins turn up on the doorstep to enquire about their roots and hear the stories of the American Wakes at the home or crossroads before they had to leave their homeland and unlikely to ever return. these were days we wished were in the past, but going by the events of the past 8 years when our so-called government handed the people of Ireland a 200e billion bill to bail out these banks that were broke because they went on a loan-giving spree to people they knew could not repay the loans.
We the Irish people were led to believe at the time of the bank bailout that this was to cover any losses at the banks and we would be repaid over a period of time, so what we thought was this would avoid people losing their homes but that was not how it all worked out, we the people of Ireland are still the peasants but the government and the banks are now the landlords, THE ELITES!!! Different times but the same story as in the 1800s
It would now seem that the state and their security services are now the coats of many colours but especially the ones in blue who are now the facilitators of this brutality against their own people. A brutality it is alleged was carried out by northern protestant paramilitaries, i.e. the UDA and/or the UVF, either way it was permitted by the Gardai who now claim that it was an order of the court, but I can be sure of one thing the courts did not approve of a 5 am visit from a gang of loyalists to brutalise and assault a family of elderly people in County Roscommon, but the Garda did !! as they blocked off the roads leading to the farmhouse and then looked on as people were assaulted by this gang of loyalist thugs.
All of this behaviour brings back memories of how these loyalist thugs burned out and forced the eviction of over 3000 catholic homes in Belfast 1969, but as these actions led to the creation of the Provisional IRA to defend our communities and homes but once again the blue shirts of Fianna Fail and Fine Gael turned their backs on the Irish population of the six counties and supported and defended the loyalists and their action, actions which were fully supported by the British government of the day. Now its the turn of the republic to see first hand what your Government and Gardai are capable of.
This proves to me that Irish People and their rights are expendable to the loyalists and the Banks,
(AS A FIANNIA FAIL LEADER ONCE SAID WE WILL NOT STAND IDLY BY )
WELL THIS TIME THEY HAVE AND WILL DO AGAIN AS LOYALIST ONCE AGAIN THREATEN OUR PEOPLE BUT NOT IN THE NORTH, BUT IN YOUR SOVEREIGN STATE, THE SO CALLED REPUBLIC OF IRELAND WHICH IS NOT THE IRELAND WHERE THOUSANDS OF OUR PEOPLE DIED AND SACRIFICED FOR
TIME TO CALL A HALT
At this time a rubicon has been crossed by the West British Fianna Fail / Fine Gael and these vulture fund companies and the banks.
All have raped and plundered our country of our national assets (oil, gas and our money which has destroyed our country as 1/2 a million of our brightest young people take to the skies and boats in search of a better future ), Just as the British did in the 1800s
SAME RESULT JUST DIFFERENT PEOPLE. THIS TIME ITS OUR OWN PEOPLE RAPING THEIR OWN PEOPLE TO SATISFY THE GREED OF THE POLITICAL CLASS AND THE BANKS, THE THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY ELITES .
Ray Burke TD, Fianna Fail Minister who gave away our gas to Shell worth billions. They have since sold it at a profit, but we are still stuck with all the tax breaks and subsidies given by Burke
Brian Cowen Fianna Fail Minister
As the country went on a spending spree so did he as Minister of Finance. He allowed the banks to do as they wished, he later dismissed the bank regulatory person with a big payout as he covered up what really went on in the banks and especially the Anglo Irish Bank. Not one person has seen the inside of a prison cell except a few order takers in Anglo Irish Banks
Last but not least the real architect of the bank crash and the bankruptcy of Ireland. As he lived the high life of Prime Minister, Dublin and Ireland burned because of his own political ambitions.
And therein lies the destruction of the Irish nation, Ego, Drink, Greed.
