The present Fine Gael/Labour government bailed out corrupt Irish banks to the tune of billions of euro with Irish taxpayers money. The coalition government continues with the exact same toxic legacy of the previous Fianna Fáil government.
Behind the spin and propaganda of the establishment parties and corporate media, the truth is that continued austerity measures are nothing more than a robbery, to pay for the rampant greed of bankers, developers and corrupt politicians. To date not one corrupt banker has been imprisoned.
Hard to believe the so-called 'Labour Party' has been complicit in these savage policies on ordinary working people.
Local government TDs such as Aodhán Ó Ríordáin (Labour) and Terence Flanagan (Fine Gael) take home over €100,000 a year of taxpayers' money, while implementing the robbery of the Irish people with lies and spin. Former corrupt politicians like Bertie Ahern take home a pension of over €140,000 a year of taxpayers' money.
Some of these austerity/robbery measures include
· Cuts in Medical Cards
· Cuts in Social Welfare Payments to Under 25s
· Cuts in Telephone Allowance for Senor Citizens
· Increases in both Electric and Gas Prices
· Future Water Taxes
· Forcing the Unemployed to work for €1 an hour in the “Jobs Bridge” Scam
· Rising Housing Crisis
Speaking about these cuts, éirígí 2014 Local Election Candidate Ciarán Heaphey said: ''éirígí has a proven track record of highlighting and fighting these cuts in this community. We will continue to work with communities and groups in resisting these savage austerity measures, which amount to nothing more than a robbery of the Irish people, to pay for the corruption of the privileged few.”
