    Ah protesting against property tax on behalf of the little man.

    Grasp of macroeconomics has never been the strong point of gombeenism (whether it comes in the armed or unarmed flavour).

        GERRY ADAMS GETS PERMISSION TO APPEAL 1970S CONVICTIONS
        To quote Sgt Wilson "Do you think that's wise " I can only imagine the amount of stuff the PSNI have on file that they could throw at wee Gerry in a court of law.

          I have no fuckin idea why militant Midlands culchies are occupying banks on behalf of a dodgy fermer tax defaulter, but there ya go. The things people put up with in Ireland with barely a muttered comment, and the things that cause conflagrations, it’s funny sometimes.

              Between this and burning out refugee hostels it’s like the horrible shadow of far right idiocy is bursting its previous dam of FG councilors and Independent TDs.

                There's always been a tendency in culchie land to equate not paying mortgages and taxes with sticking it to the man, that and the continuing respect to the "big house" landlord means all sorts of crooks who should be in jail get treated like heroes. Although in fairness the Buncrana hostel incident seemed to be an isolated incident that was widely condemned.

                  Something the buncrana hostel thing happened in Clogheen near where I'm from in the early 2000's. The fella who did it was stone mad, and had been in jail for battering his mam. They found somewhere else locally to put the refugees.

                  That thing about the farmers is just so mental. As far as I can make out, it was a farmer who borrowed money to buy more land and do farmer things, then the crash came and revenue hit him with a judgement for €500k for Vat fraud (including taxes and penalties) and that seems to have punctured him below the waterline. It is extraordinarily difficult to get to the point where you are hiring people to evict people. it takes nearly 10 years, and you basically have to not engage with the process at all. The Bank doesn't want to be evicting people because it's an utter PR nightmare. They had a guy from New Beginnings which was an organization set up to help people in mortgage arrears, and to give them legal advice, and lobby for changes in the law. He was saying that it was very rare to wind up in a situation like this, and that for it to get to this point, you have to not engage with the process at all. If you pay a relatively small amount, you won't get put out of your home. Our Law is set up to make this very hard.

                  What happened afterwards is pure mental bollocks. As far as I can make out, it's dissident Republicans kicking off, and trying to build a broader network of support by doing 'popular' things. The other thing is that the security guards doing it have to be hired from Northern Ireland, and Loyalist paramilitaries seem to have much of that business sewn up. Republican paramilitaries have other areas of the security industry sewn up. (security on films and tv for instance)

                    Em, is Mary Robinson being a dupe for her pals in the fucking Dubai royal family?

                        The state papers for 1988 are going to be coming out today and tomorrow. I wonder what sort of dark psychotic satanic shit we're going to learn about the British Govt this time.

                          Last time I heard Mary-Mary Kuwait-Contrary so animated was when she slammed an English hack for introducing "ex-President of the Irish Republic". Must remember to swerve her table at the next Trinity College reunion...

                            The whole Robinson thing is the problem you get with these UN type high up fuckers all being palsy. Princess whoever does a bit of charity work and had a great chat with Mary so of course the murderous child slave jockey Salafist bastard Emir can’t be bad.

                                Yes. Ireland just as bad as other countries in Europe, just hasn't voted for a Wilders / Le Pen / Haider style moron yet due the unique political landscape involving civil war and troubles politics.
