" A wealth of information..."

"1169 And Counting is a wealth of information on our Republican past and present , and demonstrates how the Irish political landscape , like that of any nation, will never be a black and white issue..."

This blog was listed as one of the 'Finalists' in the '2016 current affairs/politics' category of the Littlewoods Ireland blog awards - but we didn't win the award. But not to worry -thanks to everyone involved for getting us to the final stage of the competition and sure we'll try again the next time!

BRUSSELS NOT THE 'SAVIOUR' WE ARE ASKED TO BELIEVE IT IS : VOTE 'NO!' ON OCTOBER 2nd 2009.

'Updated' car number plate , Dublin!

'VOTE NO!' - mobile placard !

A reader of this blog spotted the above number plate ,on a car parked near O' Connell Street , in Dublin , and kindly sent it in to this blog : thanks ,Louise!
Incidentally , a tax imposed on 'imported vehicles'
(whatever happened to the EU 'promise' that 'Europe' will be "one big market" ?) by politicians here in this State was actually deemed , in 2002 , by the EU , as "...illegal under the EU treaty..." who called for its abolition but , in typical 'cherry-picker' mode , the wealthy elite in Leinster House have ignored that instruction - because that illegal tax is worth approximately over €900million a year to them! And they 'need' it to maintain the lifestyles they have become accustomed to .

There is a huge amount of information on the EU and its various faults on these two
'11 Sixty Nine And Counting…' posts - especially in the 'Comments' thread attached to each of those posts (thanks , 'Phoenix One UK' !) : "faults" , that is , for those of us that have to pay for the sheer extravagant waste that the Brussels Monster has become , and a waste that the political elite want to ensure will continue for their own financial gain, which is what the Lisbon Constitution/Treaty will guarantee .
We don't 'owe' them and we can't afford them - VOTE 'NO!' on 2nd October 2009.

Thanks!
Sharon.
